Good leisurely lunch yum cha and small talk. Arrive after 1pm and you'll get a table pretty pronto. But same sound level even though people are leaving.

This is a largish restaurant complete with chandeliers and traditional yum cha food carts. Near major hotels in Central’s City Hall, it’s well worth a lunch stop. Immaculately clean and maître-d’s are beautifully attired. Great for business lunches or family get togethers. Closes at 3pm...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
