We were lucky and only waited 5-10 mins for a table and handed an English menu to make our selection... the pork buns are delicious! We ordered 6 dishes and were nicely full... There were enough non-shellfish options as I'm allergic.

For starters the queue moved very quickly for us, we ordered when in line and the food did not disappoint. Get the pork buns and once you work out how many you want to order, double it! The steamed dumplings are also amazing, especially any...More

I was only in Hong Kong for 6hours in between long haul flights. Tim Ho Wan is conveniently located near HK Central station. The dim sum was fabulous and inexpensive. Highly recommended

Everyone raved about this restaurant. After waiting for ages, we finally got our table. Food was nice, I not sure if it was as great as all the raving. But was ok.

The wait at lunch (15 minutes), the cafeteria decor, and the cramped settings may suggest avoiding this place. But the quality of the dim sum suggests otherwise. I'm glad that we endured the cramped setting (our third person was squeezed onto a low stool) because...More

Located 1 level below street level in IFC Mall, Tim Ho Wan was a bit difficult to find but well worth all the adventure. Somehow we managed to arrive when there was no line and got a table right away! The dim sum at this...More

Delicious food for a reduced menu. The BBQ bun was the highlight. Should mai, sticky rice and the veggie tourism wraps were all good. Like it! Had a little problem finding the place.

The rage here is about the pork buns, but the shrimp dumplings and spring rolls were actually fantastic. This one at Central is a great place to grab a bite if you're coming from the airport.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

You may need to ask people once you get there since you have to go up some escalators and they were somewhat confusing. However, any of the shop attendants can help you. Mainly look for the food arcade at the Hong Kong... More

Cash is always preferred. In general, it's hard to find shops (especially small ones) that take credit/debit/charge card. I could only use my bank card in a supermarket like ParkNShop or at an ATM. Some shops & restaurants... More

The restaurant is at L1 in the mall which definitely has elevators meaning you can access the floor it's on. The restaurant itself is a little cramped but I can't see why you wouldn't be able to have a wheelchair seated at... More
