Great Dimsum!

Food is relatively value for money. Love their charsiew bun just that it shrinked in size a few months ago. The 'he ye fan' is also worth the price. Steamed egg cake is over-rated.

Overpriced overcrowded overrated for the quality.

Have visited this place multiple time. Today's the 4th and most likely the last time. Standard has been dropping, and I think it has fallen into the unacceptable level today. Shrimp containing dishes (like half the menu) are powdery/chalky/floury. Most things contain way too much MSG even by dim sum standard, it leaves you with an aweful dry throat kind of feeling after the meal. Lor Mai Gai is a disaster. Have never been a fan of their '4 heavenly gods' either. These items belong to the cheapest group of dishes in HK. In SG, they just call them 'heavenly god' and sell them to you as though they belong to the top group.

Delicious dim sum

Not very long queue, bit noisy, but the dim sum were all nice especially the famous 叉烧包. We should have not ordered the beef rice which was rather boring.

Taste like any other tim sum everywhere, not recommended to Q for it

Don't know why there is so much hype about this place in the media and the long queues. Tried today (because saw this reviewed by SoShiok), went with my hubby and daughter and all three of us didn't think much of the taste.

The "star" po lo baked char siew buns are too sweet for us.

We will not be queuing to eat here or at any other branches (not worth it) hence not recommending anyone to queue for it. Heard friends queuing more than an hour for it at the Plaza Singapura branch). We waited 15 mins because we went half an hour after opening.

Please note no advance booking/reseravtions & even when you have queued & is your turn, they will not give you a table unless all your diners are present & counted !

Tim Ho Wan (添好运): 1 Michelin Star Dim Sum

Finally got to taste this internally know dim sum brand! With fresh ingredients used for preparation daily, it is no surprise to have such tasty dim sum!

My fav. was the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork.
