I had seen Yum Cha's dim sum on Instagram and immediately set to booking a table for our trip. I love whimsy, and their pig-shaped pork buns, bird-shaped pineapple puffs and custard buns seemed to fit the bill.
Unfortunately, I was slightly disappointed... my pork buns did not look quite as good as the pictures and the service felt rushed and a little unpolished. Perhaps my expectations were a bit too high...
We found much better food and service elsewhere in Hong Kong (for example, Social Place in Central for whimsical dim sum and Dim Dim Sum in Hung Hom for good value and delicious dim sum).

This is a nice, westernised dim sum restaurant. Worth visiting for super cute, instagram friendly dim sum BUT if you are after the taste and not the looks, this place is far outrun by others in taste category. Price is also higher than other dim sum restaurants, but you would be paying for the novelty factor if anything. Service is also pretty average.

Nice ambience but the food tasted average despite the beautiful presentation and it was way overpriced at 59-79HKD/basket

The famous cute Chinese bun looks the same on the Internet. The whole decoration is nice, kind of combination of tradition and modern. Taste is also good. Good for relax in the weekend.
