The food here is great and the ambiance is greatly improved with the new and bigger location opposite the Akvo Hotel. They serve alcohol at this new location too, and a cheap yummy Tsingtao goes down well with the delicate flavors of the dim sum....Of particular note are their hargao shrimp dumpling and their char siu, with the custard buns also making for an indulgent treat! The staff is friendly and always ready to amend an order if it is incorrect, and are very attentive as well.More

Has usually been very good option for dim sum on Jervois Street. Opening hours are 10am to 10pm (Mon-Sat) and 8am to 10pm (Sun). They have a smaller dining area with tables relatively close together, however they are using normal plastic table dividers to help...create social distancing and to space for small parties up to 4 people. Must admit our last visit wasn't great, normal orders were all a grade or two below what we have normally be served at Dim Sum Square. Hopefully just a bad day in the kitchen but everything seems a bit off on the day. Otherwise, have enjoyed a handful of very good light meals here in recent months, enjoying Steamed BBQ Pork Buns, Crispy BBQ Pork Buns, Siu Mai, Turnip Cake, Spring Rolls and glutinous rice with assorted meats in lotus leaf. We usually order 2-3 baskets per person here. Baskets cost between $20-35 each, cash payment only.More

A mass market dim sum restaurant at the fringe of central business district. Fair to say unit prices were quite cheap. It’s more like a fast food dim sum place than proper restaurant. Quality of dim sum very average & nothing really worth more to...mention.More

We were very pleased with this restaurant for lunch. Though the hotel recommended two other more famous dim sum we found this to be more centrally located, have less of a wait, in fact, no wait and the staff to be more friendly though still...brisk and efficient. Prices are reasonable. Tea is free with refills upon request. It is very good. A generous amount of food cost us less than $10 USD each. It is necessary to raise your hand when ready to order or if you need anything during the meal. Otherwise the waiter will not come. Unless extremely busy you don't feel rushed to leave unlike some places in Hong Kong. In fact most of the time you have to ask for your tab. The toilet must be one of the world's smallest, not good if you suffer from claustrophobia. But it is clean and in good order.More

Have enjoyed several more meals at Dim Sum Square on Jervois Street over the past year and have always been happy with the dim sum baskets served up here. This is a very good 'tourist-friendly' option for yum cha in the heart of Sheung Wan....Opening hours are 10am to 10pm (Mon-Sat) and 8am to 10pm (Sun). Note: that midday visits will likely result in you having to queue up outside to wait for a table. They serve baskets quickly and turn over tables relatively fast as well. Longest we have waited is around 15 minutes when 6-7th in the queue. Note: This is a cash only establishment. Baskets are mostly $20 to $35 each, plus a Basic Charge of $4 per person. Ordering is simple. You will be provided with a dim sum card (Cantonese and English) with names and small boxes for you to check or place a number (if you want more than 1 basket of a particular order). Unfortunately, the present order cards don't have pictures on them anymore. They have also removed the table placement which had pictures as well. As such, if you are unfamiliar with dim sum, best to research a bit and make sure you know what you are ordering beforehand. Lift your hand, a server will come to your table and take your order. Your baskets will begin showing up a few minutes later. Don't wait for all your food to arrive at the same time. Start eating as soon as your dim sum orders arrive so that you can enjoy them steamed and fresh. We like quite a few of the dim sum orders here. The Steamed BBQ Pork Buns are very good, as are the Crispy BBQ Pork Buns. Ha Gao, Siu Mai, Turnip Cake, Spring Rolls and Rice Spring Rolls are also very good. Perhaps pour favourite order here is the Glutinous Rice with Chicken, Assorted Meats, which is neatly served wrapped in a Lotus Leaf. It is fragrant and very tasty. Note: In terms of how much to order, I would suggest a minimum of 3 baskets per 2 people if you want to eat light. If you want to leave a bit fuller, perfect ok to order 2 or more baskets per person.More

We visited with a food tour group. Prawn dumplings were good, packed with whole prawns. The rest of the dumplings were okay, not as flavoursome as I’d expected. The bbq pork buns were way too sweet for my taste, sweet pork filling and sweet pastry...was too much. We do get the fact it’s a family business and independent. The food is freshly made on site which makes it better than most places around. Would like to try once more as they offer a large selection of dim sum.More

Amazing choice of dim sum and so reasonably priced. Best I have had in a long while and certainly would recommend. About £10 per head and full to the brim. If you are in the area, nice to have a walk around the Peak and...then down to Dim Sum Square.More

This busy, fairly basic and functional restaurant may not be the place to impress a date, but the dim sum is excellent good value and recommended. The Pork, Shrimp and Black Truffle dumplings boiled in their glutinous wrap are one of their stand-out offerings. And...the beef tripe with garlic and onions perhaps one of their more challenging to a modern western palate. The squid in curry sauce is flavoured with distinctive spices that are not found in European cuisine and may not be for everyone. And the Chinese Yam and Fungus introduces an unfamiliar texture. The pork and crab roe XiaoLongBao are an exquisite version of the soup dumpling and shouldn’t be missed. Service was quick and friendly. The cost for our lunch was around $23USD per head, including a large beer, felt reasonable.More

Went there tonight for dinner, an hour before their closing time. Despite the restaurant being only a third full, service was brusque and indifferent and staff started pulling down the shutters and dimming the lights twenty minutes before their closing time making us feel really...unwelcome. Food was only average with better dim sum available elsewhere, and most dim sum outlets in Singapore produce better dim sum than what this restaurant in Hong Kong produces. We ordered a dish of Siu Mai, a dish of Har Kau and a Salted Chicken Congee. Total bill was HKD 101 which was really not worth it for the quality of what they served, and even less for the poor service experience.More
