We usually arrive at Lo Wu (Luohu) earlier in the morning before the shops open so we can have early dim sum brunch. The service and food quality are reasonable, and menus are in English.

Aside from traditional dim sum items like prawn dumplings and siu mai, there are some interesting variations - we particularly enjoyed the red rice vermicelli (rice rolls) with prawn.

I would recommend not coming here at 12pm onwards for lunch unless you want to wait a while for a table. That was our experience a previous visit.

Going for luncheon at lunchtime was obviously a mistake ... we took a number but despite seating for hundreds we had to wait 40 minutes ... but it was worth it.

It helped that menu ordering forms are dual language and staff were attentive.

We had their dual meats on hot rocks to start, then dim sum and then noodles. Seriously large portions and exceedingly tasty. As well as tea we added a beer!!!

Will certainly visit again ... with better timing!

This place will bring the best and worst out of anybody. You will learn to negotiate, and eventually understand you overpaid. It is a very interesting experience, you can mostly identify good products. There are 5 stories with most shops being 10-12sqm (90-100sqf).
Don't accept the first price. The target price should be 30-35% of what they will ask for. Everything sold there is a knock-off fake, sometimes in good quality. There are hundreds of shops there, and most hold similar products. They will show you catalouges of things you'd like and when you ask, they'll bring it from a warehouse nearby.
Be careful buying watches, leather products and electronics. Some are low quality.
If you cannot stomach the overpacked crowded space and pushy sellers you almost have to beat off your back, you'll suffer. But if you have the right mindset, and a thick skin - you'll enjoy.

This is one of the two sizable Chinese restaurants within the Lowu Shopping Mall. We need to book a table for 11 of us for dinner as both restaurants can be quite busy at peak dinner time.
The food on offer are Cantonese and the server tried to sell what food they offered at best price. We listened to most of her advice but the food served are ok but not excellent.
