Hey all,
A trip to Hong Kong without Dim Sum is like going to Texas and not getting a steak, Japan and sushi, New York and a bagel/hot dog, and… well you get my point. We knew we needed to find and cover dim sum on our last Hong Kong trip, but which place would be best? After studying various options we settled on City Hall or Maxim’s Place on the 2nd floor of City Hall, Central. 

We decided on this one because it’s not as trendy as the others…. we’ll do that next time. According to most sources this is the last of the traditional dim sum locations and very worthy of a top in city ranking.


I don’t know what we expected in terms of ambiance, but I think it’s fair to say that we weren’t expecting a hotel conference room type vibe… which is pretty much what this place feels like. But that’s OK, we were there for the food and not to look at a pretty room. The place is massive and was already packed. After about a 20 minute wait we took our seats.
