The BEST 奶皇包! Jun 09, 2012
It is a huge restaurant and you decided to put me at the end of a hall way with no air condition, how wonderful. After the request of changing table, the staff offered a folding table, great start to the lunch. I can already tell the service is exceptional. This is the way you treat members, great!
Food rating: 4/10*
Price: HK$150 pax
* Food Rating: 6/10 is equivalent to 1 Michelin star, 8/10 to two Michelin stars, and 9/10 or 10/10 to three Michelin stars
Oh my god. The best奶皇包 so far in Hong Kong. It was runny, the sweetest did not over power the bun, more importantly, the salted egg York blended really well with the filling. It was just perfect!
The sauce was sweet and the pork was tender, a very standard char siu bun.
It was okay. Look at the presentation, you must be joking.
The prawn was crunchy, but the wrapper was a little sticky. It could be better.
Give me a thumb up if you like it!

Favourite Chinese Restaurant is back! May 07, 2011
My Central friend told me Tsui Hang Village restaurant is reopening again after months' renovation so we decided to make our lunch date there on their first opening day on 6 May! It's actually my top 3 favourite dim sum place in HK!
After all, glad to see it's reopening and I love their new decoration - neat and modern now in comparison to the traditional decor before. The little blue birds hanging in the ceiling are great touch. Gotta think about booking my parents' anniversary celebration banquet here as the private rooms look cozy.

will come back Aug 02, 2010
thanks to its location i come here pretty often for dim sum and dinner
i must say their dinner menu is much better than their dim sum menu, which needless to say is quite limited (this has been raised by a number of reviewers already)
always have char siu or char siu bao (barbequed pork / barbequed pork buns) whenever we eat there as its 1 of their must-have. v consistent (good) quality, rarely disappointed
Central price, very attentice service in general but can depends on how busy the restaurant is
will recommend (esp for family gatherings) but if you are here for a quick bite with colleagues or romantic eat-outs then this place may not suit

Dim sum not bad, but limited choices Jun 27, 2010
Went here for dim sum the other day with my family.
Actually a bit disappointed in the choice of dim sum offered. There wasn't a wide range of selection of dim sum that we liked, so we just went for the barbecue pork buns and the tofu pudding. These 2 dishes turned out to be pretty good. I liked the strong barbecue pork flavor in the buns and the tofu pudding was made well.
We also ordered the 荷葉 rice (lily rice) and it was not bad. Not too dry and not too soggy. But we just didn't like the fact that the variety of dim sum was far too limited.
Anyway, prices here are overall pretty high as the restaurant's in Central. Service is pretty ok.

Forgettable dim sum Mar 11, 2010
Since we were visiting HK, we obviously wanted to do yum cha / dim sum. I had a list of places I was thinking about trying. A friend's bf said that he knew the “best place for dim sum”, against my better instincts I let him choose (every place he had taken to us to was a dud, but I didn’t want to be rude). Hang Tsui Village is a reasonably nice typical dim sum restaurant in Central in a small shopping center. We got there pretty early on a weekday, so it was fairly empty when we got there.
On to the food:
- Siu yau gai (soy sauce chicken / jiang you ji): as you can see, I’m a big fan of this dish and I ordered this dish before my friend’s bf ordered. This was actually very good, tender chicken, great flavor, just generally good. This was one of two winner’s here (unfortunately, neither of them were dim sum dishes)
- Spring rolls (chun juan): I never order these as I don’t really like them, these were a good rendition. Not greasy, nice and crispy exterior and good flavorful insides. Not much more to say about them.
- Rice with chicken sauce (I have no idea what this was called in Chinese or English): someone else ordered this. This was the other dish and the one dish that was outstanding here. It comes in a wide glass bowl thing. It’s steamed rice with a brown sauce that consists of diced chicken, mushrooms, broccoli stems and maybe one or two other things. It’s sort of hard to explain, but it was really good.
- Shu mai w/ scallops (shao mai): these were just decent, I mean were cooked okay, but I wasn’t wow’d by the filling and I’ve had way better shu mai than this (my grandmother’s were about 100x better)
- Meat balls (always forget what these are called): these are those steamed meatballs that you put Worcester sauce on. Not my favorite dish and just okay.
- Cha siu bao (cha shao bao / steamed pork buns): one of my all times favorite foods. These were just okay, the bread was fine, reasonably soft although not as soft as it should be, filling was decent, but sweeter than I like. Fine but nothing mind blowing.
- Ha Gao (Xia Jiao / steamed shrimp dumplings): my relatives once told me that these are what you are supposed to judge a dim sum place on. Well, these were just decent. Skins weren’t as delicate as I like them, filling was fine, but just nothing to write home about. I know places in the US that do a better job than here.
- Pai guat (pai gu / spare ribs): another favorite dim sum dish, another just okay rendition
Now it wasn’t bad and if it was in the US it would be considered good / above average, but I’ve had way better dim sum in HK and this place just didn’t cut it for me. From now on I’m just going to take charge of the situation or listen to people I know have good taste.
