I was visiting the Yaumatei neighbouring and had an hour to spare before my medical appointment near lunch hours. I walked into Tai Ping Koon on a hot summer day without making any reservation. I was not optimistic to find a table based on previous experience that it is a very busy place for dining. Fortunately, the restaurant was only 3/4 full, probably because it was school holiday. I ordered from the standard lunch set menu. They offered excellent a la carte and also lunch set inclusive of bread, soup, jelly and drinks. It is good value for money. The service was good but nothing fancy. The decor was interesting as they are a lot of black and white photos of Hong Kong scenaries during the post War period. It was an enjoyable experience as some of their dishes served as collective memory in my family such as roast pigeon and Chicken wings in sweet soya sauce. The shredded beef with fried noodles and baked rice dishes such as baked pork chop with fried rice and baked chicken with rice in Portuguese style are highly recommended.

It's a bit old school but you go there for the experience. The swiss chicken wings (soy sauce chicken wings) are a legend here and frankly the main reason you would come here.

A traditional restaurant run for decades that served Hong Kong style western food which were delicious and could not find it elsewhere in the city

This restaurant dates from 1860. Chiang Kai-shek and Zhou Enlai are said to be among the notables who have chosen to eat here (I wonder if either one returned a second time). The current wait staff have not, of course, been here since the beginning, but almost. My son said this place reminded him of a very old English supper club. Our meals -- beef with noodles and chicken concoctions -- were in all respects undistinguished, except pricier than in better restaurants nearby. The decor was 1950s. If this restaurant is to survive for another 150 years, or even another five years, it had best not rest on its laurels, instead offer cuisine and ambience worthy of its heritage.
