Outstanding dim sum, always a line waiting to order. The best baked BBQ pork buns are the best. The size of the dim sum is generous and the taste is very good. This is take out only but well worth it. Go early as they run out of most popular items by mid day.

When we got there, a group of people were in line waiting to go in. Service was efficient and good. Try the steamed pork buns or shai mai. The pork buns were delicious. There is no seating room, so it's best to grab it to-go and head to a park.

pretty decent dim sum. definitely not the best i have had. consider getting more fried items, cause those are more consistently prepared.

Be ready for a line and be ready for classic 'Chinatown-style' service. Personally I have no issue with either. In fact, it makes the place more authentic and I appreciate that :)

When i saw a menu that another diner had posted my first thoughts were, this must be an old menu from like 5yrs ago. Sent hubby down to Good Mong Kok to get the family breakfast (we were staying at the Park Central Hotel near Union Square) and he came back $25USD later with bags of goodies. We're talking fried noodles, 4 serves of siu mai/dim sims, 3 x serves of prawn dumplings, 1 x large serve of pork and preserved egg congee, 3 x serves of shrimp rolls, egg tarts, 3 x serves of chicken buns and i'm sure i'm missing a couple of other items. It was incredible. Definitely over-ordered but we weren't sure of serving sizes and stuff being first timers.

Great place to fill up for breakfast, the benefit of this place is that it opens early but, as Hubby describes it its more of a take away place and not really suited for dining in as there is no/limited chairs/tables.

We love dim sum. These guys had the best steamed pork buns ever! But, I could have done without the shrimp dumplings and pork dumplings....there are much better out there.
