Since the Mong Kok branch is closed, I went to the branch at Hong Kong station. It's not exactly in the IFC mall but at the mtr station near the exit to IFC (left side of the exit). This shop is small, the staff will...More

Well what can I say about this gem. Its in the mall, in the basement quite a trek away for a visitor not so familiar with getting their way around. But it was worth every step taken to find this place. There is a long...More

Where every dish is steamed upon order. Must-try items include Baked Pastry BBQ Pork Bun and Traditional Rice Noodle Roll. I was born in Hong Kong, welcome everybody to ask me questions about Hong Kong.

Didn't understand the hype, neither was the star valid. The portions were rather small (the turnip cake especially). The seating was cramped and 1 or 2 dim sums we ordered didn't come out piping hot. There was a long queue but I wonder what for....More

Simply said, all of the dim sum is delicious and the service is fast and food. The only downside is the line to get a table. We went at 9:30 and had to wait for 15 min as we were 5th or 6th in line....More

We were lucky and only waited 5-10 mins for a table and handed an English menu to make our selection... the pork buns are delicious! We ordered 6 dishes and were nicely full... There were enough non-shellfish options as I'm allergic.

For starters the queue moved very quickly for us, we ordered when in line and the food did not disappoint. Get the pork buns and once you work out how many you want to order, double it! The steamed dumplings are also amazing, especially any...More

I was only in Hong Kong for 6hours in between long haul flights. Tim Ho Wan is conveniently located near HK Central station. The dim sum was fabulous and inexpensive. Highly recommended

Everyone raved about this restaurant. After waiting for ages, we finally got our table. Food was nice, I not sure if it was as great as all the raving. But was ok.

I gave in to the hype and stopped by this place before leaving Hong Kong for the airport. There was a line but it moved quickly like others have stated. They use shared tables with other diners. The food arrived quickly once sat since we...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

You may need to ask people once you get there since you have to go up some escalators and they were somewhat confusing. However, any of the shop attendants can help you. Mainly look for the food arcade at the Hong Kong... More

Cash is always preferred. In general, it's hard to find shops (especially small ones) that take credit/debit/charge card. I could only use my bank card in a supermarket like ParkNShop or at an ATM. Some shops & restaurants... More

The restaurant is at L1 in the mall which definitely has elevators meaning you can access the floor it's on. The restaurant itself is a little cramped but I can't see why you wouldn't be able to have a wheelchair seated at... More
