Kam Fung Restaurant is a popular Hong Kong style tea restaurant that serves almost all of the well-known traditional dishes. They have everything from macaroni with beef brisket and milk tea to pineapple buns and fried egg with toast. This is one of the last...old school cha chan tengs left in Hong Kong where they serve cold milk tea the traditional way with no ice. This is highly recommended restaurant. Ordered 1. Pineapple bun (with butter) 2. Chicken pie 3. Hot milk tea 4. Scrambled egg and Luncheon meat sandwichMore

…for breakfast that I loved, or as it’s called here, the Kam Fung Sandwich. Super quick service, VERY low prices and about as ‘authentic’ a HK dining experience as you’re likely to get anywhere in the city. This is a superb example of popular local...fast food.More

Finally tried the chicken pie thanks to WHATEVER MAN (si daan nam)!! I have always wanted to try the chicken pie here but the pavement on this street is so narrow and there so too many people and cars on that street, its a battle...between people and cars! Anyway, it was WHATEVER MAN's treat so I finally got to try it. The appearance of the pie was flatter than the usual pies. The pie was about 70% pastry and 30% chicken. The pastry was very sweet and buttery, and the chicken was slightly sweet too.More

Best pineapple bun in Hong Kong!! Their walnut slice and satay beef noodles are also my favorites. They are also well know for their HK milk tea. Must try if you visit HK.

Always highly skeptical about touristy trap but was wow by the friendly staff in Kam Fung and also the highly recommended set Butter Polo Bun is the best I have ever tasted in Hong Kong and the coffee with milk is better than anywhere else...A must try is their chicken pie - which is melt in your mouth texture ! Dont be deceive by the hole in a wall location and put off by the long queue!More

Kam Fung Cafe is absolutely the most terrible restaurant in Hong Kong!! The food and beverages were nothing but trash (We would absolutely not feed whatever they served us to our dog) with extremely high price, and the service was awful. Never waste your money...there!! It is the only restaurant in Hong Kong that we do hate so bad; we absolutely will never dine there again...never ever!!More

This is a place where locals have breakfast and lunch. It is small and it is a place for you to finish and leave. The entire menu is in English and you pay at the front. It is nostalgic to eat at this plcae. This...is not fancy food but you will have an interesting experince.More

牛油冇牛油味,奶茶冇茶味,菠蘿包隔夜,講完。 Butter has no butter taste, milk tea has no tea taste, pineapple bun is from previous day, end of story. This is the shortest review I have written.

We tried its well-known pineapple bun with butter inside and it was really good! As a HongKonger, I could tell that the taste of the noodles and milk tea was definitely local. Worth coming for a meal if you are looking for good restaurants serving...local cuisine. Price was a little expensive but acceptable because, you know, it was in Wan Chai, city area.More

I'm actually not a fan of their fabled pineapple buns. The crust is fine, but the insides are too dense for my taste. The milk tea is ok, but I've had better.

Located a couple of minutes from Wan Chai metro, this small local style cafe has pineapple buns to die for! Order one server with a pat of butter vs without butter and it will melt in your mouth. We were seated promptly and the staff...were friendly. An English menu is available on request and has several options including set menus. The total for a pineapple bun with butter, a hot milk tea and a Coke with lemon was $54 HKD. The check is brought to your table but you pay at the counter. Lots of local people eating here and in line for buns and egg tarts to take away. We can’t wait to go back. Highly recommended!More

Portions here are smaller than some places I’ve ate at . So that’s a good thing! Means can try more! Milk tea was very shiok in hot hk weather. Seating proximity is typical hk style with awkwardness, smile and nod can Liao. They got English...menu so heng sia. Else I confirm chop die. Chicken pie was sweet and savoury. Interesting. Can tell it’s one of their popular items people take away by the box. English menu uploaded here for those who are like me need-to-know-before-going-down kind.More

This is my favorite place to go to for a nice typical Hong Kong breakfast of Po Lo Yao and Nai Cha. Order the Po Lo buns with the slab of butter. It’s very tasty. Milk tea cones either hot or cold. I usually order...the cold version. No ice is used. Tea is thick and rich. Very fulfilling.More

Affordable. I would recommend going during non-peak hours, the restaurant offers an English menu. Would recommend trying out the Satay beef noodles and the Bo Luo Bun. The restaurant might be tough to find as it is tucked a street or two away from the...MTR, would recommend using Google Maps to help you find it faster!More
