Summary

Still a favourite for some reporters – this massive Chinatown fixture is one of the very few still to serve dim sum from circulating trolleys (“but only on weekends”).

Summary

“Old-school Hong Kong dim sum on a trolley – the only way to have it!”; “be prepared to queue” for this massive Chinatown landmark – “there are classier restaurants by far”, but “the fun factor of the circulating food makes the experience”.

Summary

“The fun factor, with the circulating trolleys, is arguably better than the food itself” – perhaps why this gigantic Chinatown classic remains a particular hit with reporters for dim sum.

Summary

“A real HK experience!”; children, especially, just “love the trolleys” which whizz the lunchtime dim sum around this cavernous Chinatown fixture; evenings? – “don’t bother!”

"The fun factor, with the circulating Dim Sum trolleys is the best part, as there is better dim sum to be had elsewhere. Otherwise the food is average for Chinatown"
