Totally unpretentious restaurant, difficult to find in fact. When I went there there were no live snakes, just a choice of large or small soup bowl. But they told me at other times you can pick your own snake. Cheap, tasty and real Hong Kong.

Our snake soup was delicious. It was made of chicken and five types of snakes, which tasted a little bit like chicken but was a bit more gummy. The place was really authentic and the owner (I think he was the owner!) was very friendly...More

I came here on purpose for the snake soup and was not dissatisfied! The soup is great! I just pity I did not have more time to taste the other options...

Tradition snake soup is so good especially when weather is getting cold, a small bowl of snake soup(HKD43.00) should warm you up, decor is old, service ok, food is very good, must try if you like to try something different

I've tried the deep fried snake and it was sooo tasty. I've also bought a snake's bile wine. Very good. This place is highly recommended expecially for western tourists that want to try exotic tastes.

This shop may not be as famous as Ser Wang Fen. However, it serves the same kind of snake soup that you will expect from a typical HK stall like Shia Wang Hip. It is located in an suburban neighbourhood. The rental is lower and...More
