I'm having my dinner with my family at this restaurant last week when i visited to HK and this restaurant is really impress me... My inital thought was HK people should be friendly and polite since it is a famous tourism place, but it is not... The staffs is so rude when taking order from the customers and once you finished your dish, they will just kept all the plates without asking your permission and said: Pls.. pay.. even though we are yet to finish our drinks.. We trying to order a warm water from one of the staff but the staff told me: Order later.. so at the end we need to order from another person and they way they serve the dish is not on a proper way. Why should i pay and return is those bad services?
Very good and inexpensive food. The menu at Tsui Wah Restaurant is very diverse. The only problems I encountered were that the waitstaff doesn't necessarily speak English and the service was a little slow.
Favorite Dish: Prawn and fried noodles
This is one of my favorite restaurants for fast food and an affordable price.
They have the most amazing selection of breads and desserts so if you're in the mood for some light breakfast/ afternoon tea or in need of a hearty meal, Tsui Wah is the place to be!
Please make a special note: this is not the place for good service or a relaxing ambience.
I personally prefer the Tsui Wah located on Jaffe road in Causeway Bay. I just think it tastes much better.
Favorite Dish: I'm often craving their curry chicken or curry lamb (this comes with the naan bread which is heavenly!)/ pork chops/ etc is the best curry dish ever!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm considering working there for a month just to learn how they make their curry!
They have everything from noodles to sandwiches Hong Kong style.
Bread with condensed butter, pineapple bread, baguette with butter are must trys!!!!
I like the breakfast here, and have taken some pictures of some of Hong Kong popular local cuisines at my blog www.eonenet.com/internet_marketing_blog
For visitors to this resturant, do try out the Fishball soup (which is made with shark bone soup).

Tsui Wah is a large and popular restaurant in the SoHo area of Central that proclaims itself as “The Best Cafe Restaurant.” I'm not sure about the truth of this statement. But it is a good spot for a fast, tasty, and inexpensive meal.
Favorite Dish: When you're in HK, you just got to try the wanton noodles there. I stayed in Singapore and the wanton noodles here are waaaaaaay below the standard of HK's. The wantons are made of fresh whole shrimps & the servings are generous. 8 wantons in a bowl! What I find here back in my country are 3,4 small pathetic looking wantons.
Tsui Wah Restaurant is located on Wellington Street in a busy part of Central Hong Kong near the popular dining area of Lan Kwai Fong. I passed by it a few times during my visit to the city in January 2006, each time noting that all the tables were full, before eventually popping in for lunch one day.
As ever, it was bustling with lunchtime diners - especially workers on their lunch break - but I managed to find an unoccupied table. It is a pretty large restaurant, with seating for maybe 100 or more diners at a time, but it still seems to be full on most occasions - so that must say something for the quality of the food!
Even by Hong Kong standards this place has a very extensive menu. As well as the usual choice of chicken, beef, pork and seafood stir frys and soups, noodles and rice dishes, Tsui Wah Restaurant also offers Malaysian curries and a wide selection of "Western" dishes. Amongst the Western dishes on the menu are steaks, sandwiches, fish and chips, beef stroganoff, egg and corned beef sandwiches and chicken wings.
There is also a large dessert menu and a huge choice of drinks and, unlike many restaurants in Hong Kong, there is no 10% service charge automatically added to the bill (but the friendly staff certainly deserve a tip for their great work in such a hurried setting!).
Favorite Dish: Wading through the pages and pages of impressive sounding dishes, I eventually opted for:
Beef Satay with Fried Noodles - Cost: 49 HKD
A large dish of beef satay (good quality meat with tomatoes, onions, peppers and pineapple in a tasty sauce), served with copious amounts of long thin noodles.
Can of Coca Cola - Cost: 12 HKD
I also received a complimentary glass of Chinese tea which was continually refilled by a helpful member of the service team each time I finished it. This seems to be standard practice in Hong Kong restaurants.
Good value food and an unbeatable choice of dishes. Definitely recommended - if you are lucky enough to get a table!!
This is one of my favourite local eat house (Char Chan Tang). This 24-hour restaurant is ALWAYS packed with people, good indication. Food served faster then you can imagine. The menu is SO doverse that ou can find almost anything... from Indian curry, to Singaporean Hainan chicken rice, Japanese noodles, Chinese Char-Siew (roasted pork) Rice, fried rice, Western pasta, HK fish ball noodles, porriges, sanwiches, Western roasted spring chicken, etc.
Be prepared to share table with strangers.
Definately not a romantic hideaway but, it's the place to go when you truly need to grub! Less than HK$50 per person.
A constantly packed, 24 hour, local Hong Kong diner. A favorite to the locals and anyone who is fortunate to discover this hot spot!
The food is faster than fast, you may be seated with strangers, and it's filled with pure second hand smoke but, who cares when the curry comes out?
It's definately not a romantic hideaway but, it's the place to go when you truly need to grub!
The menu is so diverse you'll find anything from sweet pastry desserts thickened with condensed milk, wonton soup, stir fries, hot dogs, and indian bread!
It's a good place to go if you're staying in Hong Kong for
awhile! In fact I'm there too often!It's a franchise restaurant but, this is the best location. The one in Central is not nearly as delicious!
Favorite Dish: curry chicken! There's also the choice of lamb that comes with naan bread (this is the most amazing bread you'll find)
pork chops curry, ox tongue (this one is so tendour it will melt in your mouth), chicken cutlet curry, vegetable curry, beef brisket curry etc...
There's so many amazing dishes and 90% of the time you wont go wrong! I can't list them all!
Oh they also have a meal of the day that comes with a drink, soup, and the main dish for a cheaper price!
The desserts: Every kind of bread with enough condensed milk to make your thighs scream!
for less sweet tooths try: Pineapple bread with butter!
A famous and unbelievable bread with butter sandwich. It's a slab of butter in a bun~ you wont believe the thickness untill you've tried it!
Drink: original iced milk tea! A locals favorite!
Tsui Wah is one of HK's local hangouts where people come for a hot bowl of wonton noodles (shrimp/pork dumplings w/ eggs noodles in a clear broth) or a tasty Malayan curry. It's a menu of a hundred different tastes that won't dent your wallet. Come in shorts and sandles or a three piece suit. This is a "no frills" restaurant. Patronage is eclectic and service fast, friendly. There is a non-smoking area. It does get crowded at lunch hour so go before 1:00 PM if your planning on lunch.
Favorite Dish: When you're there be daring and try the fishballs in broth. They're homemade and a favorite with the locals. One of my favorite dishes would have to be the curries.
Another 'tea restaurant' in Hong Kong though this one is more famous. More items on the menu include its famous fish ball w/ noodle in soup, chicken curry, 'hoi nam' chicken w/ rice etc etc. I think this is one of the largest 'rea restaurant' in Hong Kong, with 3 storeys of space. A casual place just get your tummy filled. Under HKD$50/ person.
Favorite Dish: noodle w/ fish ball in soup
