We went here for a late dim sum lunch one day, right before heading to the airport - and despite recently being in Hong Kong we were really impressed.
The atmosphere was a little posh in my taste. I mean, the interior was beautiful (high ceiling, one tea salon, one dining room, and one grand piano) which I love, but the staff could have been a little bit more warm and relaxed.
My first mid-week lunch experience was good. Service was attentive and the food of good quality. There were some interesting and creative items in the Dim Sum menu (but no Lo Mai Gai, which I missed). However, Sunday Dim Sum experience was bad. Service was very slow (45 mins for food to arrive - which is odd for Dim Sum!) and the hostess who seated us wins the grumpiest woman on earth award.more

I've been there for dim sum and for regular meals and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and the service. Their dim sum menu could be a little bit more comprehensive but what they do, they do well.
