Chao Inn: Hong Kong Dim Sum with Harbour View
Good food (Chiense dim sum), good service, and with fantastic harbour view!
average spending HK$100 per person. Mon- Fri before 12noon got special discount, all dim sum 50% off, average HK$50 per person. There's a new branch in airport departure hall, heard they also have good food.
Favorite Dish: Fried Raddish Cake with spicy XO sauce.
Steamed Chicken feets with blackbean sauce.
Steamed Shrimp dumplings.
Deep Fried Fish Balls with clam
Chao Inn: Dim Sum + Awesome View!
Stunning view of the Victoria Harbour along with authentic chiu chow dim sum! It is a bit expensive compared to other dim sum places, but if you go after 2pm (afternoon tea time), its a lot cheaper and there are specials!
Favorite Dish: Goose meat is excellent - very tender, superb flavor! Also the dim sum is very good! Definitely should try the mango + sago dessert.
Chao Inn: Inexpensive, yet great food, fantastic view
I went there MANY times in July/August 2004 mostly for yum cha (tea and dim sum) and once for dinner.
What struck me first was the decor; they used Chinese bird cages and dark wood to give an antique feel to the place. The view (ask for a table by the window!!!!) was amazing, you could gaze upon Victoria Harbour, even better at night!
The service was quite good, never too slow.
Warning: the restaurant is very popular (mostly Chinese, never saw many other foreign people) and one day the queue was two hours for yum cha (but they recognised my mum as she'd been the so many times and allowed us to have a table first, so eat there often!!!
After 2pm dim sum is MUCH cheaper than usual and well worth it. Plus unlike most other places in HK, there was no extra charge for tea or sauces!
Favorite Dish: I liked the fried thick rice noodles with beef! (My favourite Chinese noodles)
The mon-gwar-boe-dean (mango pudding) was very tasty.
The mantou (white Chinese bread buns you dip into sweet condensed milk) was good.
The har-gow (prawn dumplings) were also good. As was the cheung-fun (slimy looking white soft pastry with prawns and veggies - looks gross but tastes good!)
ONLY PROBLEM! - The did not do dan-tarts (egg tarts) my absolute favourite Chinese food! I was distraught! Lol....
A restaurant with a great view of Hong Kong Island. It specializes in Chaozhou style dishes. Get there early as the line up begins to increase after 7:00pm. It is part of the Tao Heung Group Holdings.
Favorite Dish: Try the Fried Pepper "Nine Stomachs" Fish for HK$50.
