Address: Level 3, Shanghai Tang Mansion, 1 Duddell Street, Central
Duddell’s has been awarded Michelin 2 stars. However, even without that rating, the dim sums are amazing to say the least. The food items are on the pricier side, but with dishes like Abalone Puff with Chicken and Mushroom Dumplings topped with Black Truffle, it is not difficult to see why it is so. Its grandiose ambience will give you a taste of luxury, and you can end the meal with a drink at the rooftop bar. It is a place worthy of the experience.
2. Luk Yu Tea House

Address: 24-26 Stanley Street, Hong Kong
As one of Hong Kong’s oldest dim sum restaurants, the ambience and design of the place will bring you back to the good ol’ 60s. Traditional dim sums are available and priced around HK$40 per basket, which isn’t really the cheapest around. But for the experience of dining in the older days, it is definitely worth the visit.
3. Maxim’s Palace
