One thing is for sure, the buns are really cute and very instagrammable! We ordered the custard bun, pork bun, sausage (dog) bun and the spicy pork bun. And all of them are supe cute! But, for the taste, I liked the custard bun only. Others will definitely fail based on Hong Kong food expectation.
We also ordered wanton noodle, noodle with beef and minced duck lettuce. The noodles are fine, but the minced duck, uhmm...
Service?! Well, I would’ve expected a happier vibe from the staff of a place like this. Everyone seem so unwelcoming, maybe because they are busy. But I think that is not an excuse.

You get what you come for at this place: super cute dim sum. However, in addition you also get some very good flavours and plenty food that is not multi coloured steamed dough. We only had lunch here and stuck to the basics, as expected it wasn’t the cheapest place but we had lots of fun eating!

Very average food that is overpriced. The buns were cute to look at, but not tasty at all. The skin of the chee cheong fun and har gao was super thick. The only redeeming dish was the truffle ee fu noodles.

We actually like it here. The atmosphere, the setting of the restaurant and especially the food. The dim sum looks so cute and photogenic but it actually tasted good! We especially love the truffles noodles and the signature buns! We made a booking via Chope and it's simple and efficient!

One thing we have to complain is the poor service. The staff are very unfriendly and have no service mind at all. They way they talk to you - one female staff actually raised her voice to us when we asked about the choices of water. It's funny they are all wearing T-shirts that says "HAPPY TO HELP" - just hilarious! They should really work on this and it will be a much better place.
