Michelin Star Dim Sum

Before heading to Hong Kong I had read a lot of reviews about the world's cheapest Michelin restaurant, owned by Tim Ho Wan and my main concern was wasting a day in Hong Kong just waiting around as I had read you would need to get there early for a ticket and be prepared to wait for over an hour.

Well today must have been my lucky day as my wait was just five minutes, yes that's right, 5 minutes. My boyfriend and I headed to the restaurant around 4.30pm and already there was a queue outside the door, we stood around not sure what to do, as inside was packed with people. I spoke to a lady who left the restaurant and she said she had waited for two hours, but the food was worth it. After a few minutes of arriving the manager came out and allocated numbers to people and provided them a menu to fill in and within minutes my boyfriend and I were seated inside the restaurant. We were both shocked after hearing the obscene reviews of people having to queue for hours. Anyway we weren't in a position to complain.

We handed the waitress our checked menu list and it wasn't long before our food was dished up and it was great! We chose a mixed array of dim sum and it was so soft and flavoursome. I loved it. the restaurant itself is very small and you are practically sitting on top of the person next to you, but its a great experience. The food prices range from $16-$24HKD.
