Nice condiment selection for hot pot! Dec 08, 2012
A variety of raw food trays were ordered (in order to cook in the hotpot at our table).
The mushrooms were quite nice, and the tofu curd wraps also went quite well. Most of the meat was a bit fatty for my taste. So, that really limited what I was keen to try. But, everything went well with the base. By the end of the meal, I was getting a bit of a buzz -- and suspect that the meat balls (fish, chicken, etc). were MSG impregnated. (I did not have any; but when cooking them, an exchange with the soup is inevitable).
The almond 'cloud' was not as thick as it could have been, and was a bit starchy. But still of reasonable quality (given the price of <$10)
The environment was a typically LOUD hotpot eatery. Very local ambiance.
Supplementary Information:Some confusion over the beer noted on our slip. An extra $8 is nothing to make a big fuss over, though.
Hygene was reduced as some black blob arrived with our satay soup part. It was quickly removed by the waitress --but was suspiciously NOT like a spice!!!
Although not part of the dining experience, when going to use the washroom, there was a crew working on cleaning the ventilation grills (or something of the sort). Even though cleaning above prepared (set) tables, there was nothing to protect the dishes from any 'additional flavouring' from the cleaning. Bit of a disappointment.

沒有指天椒的火鍋店!! Jun 12, 2011
I have been hotpot in 稻香 many times, but this one in MK, really the first time and did not expact it was that bad...
1- Unacceptable, how can a hotpot place has no 指天椒?? (cannot be ordered too)
XO sauce is the only spicy stuff they have.. come on...
2- soya sauce is too sweet ...
3- 炸腐皮 is super bad, if you think it is good, i can tell you, many other places are a lot better!! it tasted like a plastic!!
4- hand-cut beef ($58) was worse than those $30/kg in 佳寶
5- tomato and potato soup base was so bad, (1 tomato and cut into 4 then put into hot water), are you playing me?
seriously, do not waste money, i rather eat 辛辣麵 at home!!
have to try other 稻香 one more time, if it is the same, definitly black list for good!!

MSG King Oct 19, 2010
I only came here for yum cha twice and have never ate their family dinner or hot pot. The yum cha was quite cheap if you go before 11am. They have 'Twins' deal where you choose two items from a designated menu for a very low price of ~$11 (i think) If you have two people you can get 2 'Twins'. Anyways, that is besides the point. I am here writing this review is because twice coming here I've been sick by all the MSG they use in the dim sum, especially the steam radish cake. My stomach does not take MSG very well. However, if you can tolerate MSG I won't stop you from coming here because there are some tasty dishes. The steam grain bun with sesame paste filling is really good. Shrimp dumpling is good. 流沙包 is good and big. I find a lot of their 'baos' skin to be very sweet with the exception of the sesame one. The roast pork bao and the bao wrapped in sticky rice is soooo sweet.

very busy dim sum chain Dec 14, 2009
i've noticed that the best tao heung is the one next to eaton hotel in yau ma tei
anyway this one is the one inside theshopping centre on nathan road, mongkok
went here for dim sum and it is very busy, expect to queue, however the queueing system is very quick.
you ell the girls on the front how many there is of you and wait for your no. to be called
when seated you look at the dim sum sheet and also see whats on offer and order
although its very busy, the staff could be a little more helpful, sometimes when you try to hand in your order they can miss you becvause they're so busy getting food out/ seeing to other tables
once ordered the food came out very promt
the roast geese soup *lai fun* came out seperate
the noodles was very *a la dente* and the geese was very tasteful and the skin was crisp
the fat beef vermicilli soup, wasn't so good, very bland and wouldn't recommend it at all
the dim sums are very nice, and the standard never drops
the XO har gau's are a good chjoice for a little spicyness to yuor food
in general def recoomend coming here for yam cha

It's Worth Going... Feb 25, 2009
We went to Tao Heung abt a wk ago. Luckily, we didnt have to wait for long (9pm session). The waiters and waitresses were very attentive. The hotpot was nice. I just wanted to try everything, so we ended up ordered 11 dishes for the hotpot, American beef, lamb, scallop, and different kinds of "clams" (蚌) In the end, we finished almost everything except for the Enoki.
象拔蚌 is very fresh and abit crunchy. You can either eat in raw with wasabi or cooked in the hotpot.
it's worth going again........
Would like to try the dimsum next time.
Recommended Dish(es): 象拔蚌, 炸鱼皮，竹笙
