Need to arrive outside of peak meal times to avoid the long queue. The BBQ pork bun (char siew Bao) is nice, so is the beancurd dessert. The rest of the dim sum items is okay but nothing ‘wow’ to justify a repeat visit,

While the ambiance was awesome and trolley service was a wonderful old world touch, the service itself was a little slow and the food was above average. I would recommend visiting to visit, but not with high expectations of the food and service.

The food is unique and nice. Price however is a little expensive. The waitress is not courteous especially when clearing up tables. She can just take the plates rudely and go over the heads of customers. No smile at all from the people serving you...More

This restaurant is pretty pricy but it’s a great experience - delicious yum cha on trolleys in a great location. Worth a visit but expect to wait for a table.

If you have never experienced dim sum in pushed trolleys. I think you could try this. For us is more of the ambience and view. Food wise, personally feels a little oily. Here are a few things to note: 1) You have to be there...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
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
