It was an interesting and over whelming experience as I walked in during lunch time. It was busy and very crowded. Luckily I got little help from one of the locals who was sitting next to me. Dim sum was great and I can understand...More

This is one of the rare remaining authentic tea house. The main attraction lies in its authentic value in the 1950’s atmosphere. The decor is authentic 50’s and you can experience how they served tea in that era. Make sure you order tea in its...More

A great place to experience the traditional Dim Sum culture of Hong Kong. The place was super busy, very loud and you have to be prepared to just sit wherever there are seats (don't expect the staff to help you out too much). There are...More

Before the place shuts, do yourself a favour and go get some good dimsum here. How do you know a restaurant serves good food? Look at the crowd. Each morning, armed with a newspaper or a group of friends, elderly locals living in the area...More

From the environment to the food, everything was very much from olden days. Old carts are pushed around and you can see people rushing to grab their food. If you are slow, the food is gone. That is reasonable enough as the food was simply...More
