Tel: 852 2523 5464's insider take:

The best—and certainly the most traditional—dim sum in town is served here. Its 1930s rosewood furniture, creaky ceiling fans, brass spittoons, and famously rude waiters have made it a favorite with tycoons such as David Tang (of Shanghai Tang fame) and Dickson Poon, chairman of Harvey Nichols in London. For the genuine experience, come for an early lunch—after 11 a.m. they park the trolleys and break out the picture menus for tourists (though at lunch hour, you may often find yourself virtually ignored by the waiters in favor of the locals, who don't need every dumpling described). If you do decide to show up during the calmer evening repast, come early; the dim sum ends at 5:30 p.m.
