Harden's survey result
“The trolley service dim sum (good, if nothing exceptional) is the draw to this Cantonese barn” which sits “above a cash and carry” and has “oh-so glamorous (ho ho) views of a multi-storey car park”; “be prepared to queue in a slightly disorganised way”, and “don’t miss your number being called or you’ll be at the back of the queue again”.
“If you had your eyes closed and only opened them in the restaurant you would think you were in Hong Kong” – rather than atop the Wing Yip supermarket – at this well-known, bustling Cantonese outfit. Dim sum is the real draw, and other dishes can strike reporters as “substandard”.
This “premier eating warehouse”, atop Wing Yip supermarket, is perennially “crammed with Chinese” come the weekend. “Authentic dim sum” is the main event (“other items only rate as good”); “Sundays and Mondays are when you get the trolleys, but the selection seems pretty comprehensive during other lunchtimes too”. “Service is chaotic but friendly enough, if you smile and speak a few words of Cantonese!”
“HK in Manchester!”; this venue, located atop the Ancoats branch of supermarket chain Wing Yip, is “great for Sunday dim-sum” – just remember to “get there early!”
