Introduction
Earning its Michelin star, Tim Ho Wan guarantees a packed dining experience. However, this very reasonably priced restaurant offers only the freshest of meat and makes their BBQ pork buns from scratch- which explains its popularity. Despite the 1-2 hour long queues, customers keep their taste buds satisfied by revisiting Tim Ho Wan.

Tim Ho Wan had been reported as the eatery offering the cheapest Michelin 1* cuisine in the world and this was but one of the reasons why people were willing to queue just to get a ticket. We had visited the flagship store at Tsim Sha Tsui on numerous occasions only to be turned away by hour-long queues. Entering the eatery was like squeezing into a narrow alleyway since it could house barely 30 people. I would strongly advise against having any bulky items on you when visiting ...

Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialists A cheap Michelin 1-star restaurant, flaunting that their Dim Sum are freshly steamed only when you ordered them. Kwong Wa Street, Mong Kok — a hot spot belonging to our RC racing car fanatic. Each time when I was here, I will think of the secret behind this little restaurant’s successful, why many local people and tourists like it. But the queue is always crazy… so I would not try to get inside~.~ Today was...

smile - With only one full day in Hong Kong, I thought I should look for Dim Sum on a Sunday Morning, as a way to connect with my childhood memories of eating Dim Sum in NYC in Chinatown. Since I was staying in Yau Ma Tei, a quick internet scan popped up Tim Ho Wan, and I set off quickly. Once I got near the restaurant (it was 9:50 am), which opened at 10AM, the line was about 75 folks...(WOW). I got in line and was very fortunate that when she asked me...

To be honest, the food in 添好運 is above average But the waiting time is really too long (1 hour for week day lunch time 11:45 am) The 點心 are really better than those in 酒樓 and the price is reasonable But there are not too many choices The environment is really poor First of all, the shop is very crowded I got a table which is just opposite to kitchen With such long wiating time, 試一試 would be enough

The food's so-so and service sucks. Wonder why so many people bothered queuing for it. The lady who gives out the numbers is rude. When we entered, they gave us another chit and disappeared leaving us to wonder whether we need to order again, which we did. Only to be scolded and complained about in our presence. Felt super uncomfortable the whole meal. The food's not extremely great. In fact, it's so average that I must say I've tasted much better dim sum. Think twice about h...

When I had the chance to visit Hong Kong back in January, I knew I had to try Tim Ho Wan despite all the warnings of a 1-2 hour table wait. I took some advice from most sources and decided to be there by 9.30am. A well 30minutes before their door opens. I have to say I was extremely lucky to get in during the 1st round! Was the last 4 that was ushered in tongueWe ordered the usuals like crispy BBQ pork bun, siew mai, har gao, cheung fun and to end it - kwai far gou.I love the...

Tim Ho Wan presents very cheap, very well-made dim sum in a dingy environment with poor service, but people continue to flock here. Perhaps the Michelin-star success has gone to their heads or maybe my expectations were too high, but I definitely wouldn't wait for more than 30 min to eat here. If you don't mind the wait, give this place a try. Otherwise, for tourists, there are more accessible dim sum places. My story: I'm not a big believer of "if there are lots of people ...

Best way to describe my experience: A Tale of Two Stories 1) 2 hour wait (even though the waitress said "30-45 minutes") was filled with anger and resentment for making me wait in the frigid cold and 2nd hand smoke even though I arrive 15 minutes before the store opened (opens at 10 am). Fortunately the restaurant is near the busy parts of Mong Kok w/ wet markets nearby and restaurants to window shop. Just make sure you are back in time (which is a stupid guess ...
