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.
