Dynasty Restaurant is a light and airy space with tall palm trees adding to the breezy atmosphere. Order the succulent char siu dish before it gets sold out. The usual suspects will also be available, naturally.
3/F, Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong, 1 Harbour Rd., Wan Chai, 2584-6971.

Tin Lung Heen

Soaring high above the city on the 102nd floor, Tin Lung Heen serves refined Cantonese dim sum that’s fit for a king. Even the floor-to-ceiling windows showing Hong Kong’s breathtaking views won’t distract you from tasty dishes like gold-dusted har gow and caviar-topped siu mai.
102/F, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, International Commerce Centre, 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 2263-2270.

Cuisine Cuisine

Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira serves both traditional and contemporary dim sum with a twist. Delectable shrimp and pork dumplings and taro balls with foie gras are just some of the innovative dishes you’ll find here.
3/F, The Mira, 118 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2315-5222.

Regal Court

While both Cantonese and Sichuan cuisines are specialties at Regal Court, you can also get a number of traditional dim sum dishes here. Pork buns, har gow and the signature deep-fried beef brisket are highly recommended. If you want to do it up like in the good ol’ days, remember to try the chicken liver and char siu served between Chinese steamed flatbread.
2/F, Regal Kowloon Hotel, 71 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2313-8681.

Tim Ho Wan

If you’re looking for Tim Ho Wan dim sum restaurant, just head over to Kwong Wah Street and look for the place with the giant line of people waiting outside. Opened by three-Michelin-starred Lung King Heen’s former dim sum chef, Pui Gor, it’s not hard to see why this relatively new restaurant has been generating so much buzz in the dining circuit (Tim Ho Wan has also a one Michelin-starred restaurant). Must-try items include the baked barbecue pork buns and steamed shrimp rice rolls, both of which will leave your stomach and your wallet happy.
Mong Kok Location: 2-8 Kwong Wah St., Mong Kok, 2332-2896.
IFC location: Podium Level One, Shop 12A, IFC Mall, 8 Finance St., Central, 2332-3078.

Loyal Dining

A restaurant drawing inspiration from the colonial era, Loyal Dining’s menu consists of an infusion of eastern and western favorites—but there’s also a selection of daily dim sum, like steamed glutinous rice with dried scallops, and chicken feet in black bean sauce.
66 Wellington St., Central, 3125-3000.

Dim Sum Bar

DSB is a proper restaurant that serves its namesake in scrumptious, creative varieties, including baked abalone and chicken pastries and steamed pork dumpling with truffles, as well as all-time favorites like char siu buns.
Shop G103, G/F, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, 3-27 Canton Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2175-3100.

Jade Garden

Part of Maxim’s group, Jade Garden gives diners an authentic dim sum experience with dishes served from trolleys that are pushed from table to table. Must-tries include the excellent har gow and the delightfully crunchy deep-fried scallops.
3/F, Causeway Bay Plaza II, 463-483 Lockhart Rd., Causeway Bay, 2573-9339.

Above and Beyond

Above and Beyond offers seasonal Cantonese cuisine and dim sum aplenty. Be sure to order the succulent har gow, spring rolls and sliced beef congee mixed with raw egg. If you’re hoping for more customized dim sum, there’s an option of bringing your own chef, and private dining rooms are also available.
28/F, Hotel Icon, 17 Science Museum Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 3400-1318.

Sing Yin

With a stylish interior featuring snippets of the classic Hong Kong skyline combined with ancient Chinese artifacts, dim sum fans will be glad to know that Sing Yin’s offerings don’t disappoint either. Its all-you-can-eat weekend deal presents dim sum favorites by Chef Bryan, alongside Cantonese culinary delights.
1/F, The W Hong Kong, 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 3717-2222.
