I was looking for something simple yet tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant did not get all the positive reviews for nothing. It is nothing fancy but simple and good. Prices are good. Good restaurant for family dinner when the kitchen is closed.

A small little gem in Chinatown. When people go to Chinatown for dim sum they usually go to Yangzte or Chu Shing, with Hung Sum it's made fresh and you order a la carte. I have lost count of how many times I have burnt...More

hidden gem tucked into the side, small and cozy interior, dim-sum is ordered a la-carte rather than pushed on carts. The dim-sum was made fresh and was full of flavour! Definitely beats the the bigger dim-sum places. If you enjoy a less noisy atmosphere and...More

At Hung Sum, the dim sum is made to order so it is fresh and hot unlike those restaurants that use cart service.. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly and efficient.

We finally had a chance to try this restaurant after seeing so many positive reviews. The quality of the dim sum I'd amongst the best I've had in Ottawa, although I didn't particularly like the dumplings with chives. The service was a while other story....More

Trust Urban Spoon!!!. Like a few of you, I saw the 95% approval rating and realized we had to try it. . . so glad we did. The place is tiny, only ten tables, so it is cozy and you order off of a check-list,...More

This restaurant is the best for dumpling's lovers. The table service was handle by one multitasks and really nice woman. The food was just perfect, everything was fresh and full of flavors. The interior is a little bit dated but the quality of the food...More
