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.

First things first: You may have difficulties finding the place because when you google for its location it says it is in IFC Mall. That is false! It is on L1 of the MTR Station. One level below the Airport Express Check-In desks. I went...More

It was disappointing as since Tim Ho Wan was considered a must go, I had great expectations. Maybe too much. The baked pork bun was up to standard but the rest fell way below. Based on the amount paid, I would have said Dim Dim...More

Simple, effective and reasonably priced dim sum place in the passageways of Central. Queues at peak hours build up quickly – be here before noon to grab a lunch fast.

Fast efficient service, delicious dumplings, beef noodle rolls were a standout and the BBQ buns were superbly light crisp, sweet and savory.

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

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
