[香港] Dim Sum Review 點心系列 #2:Lei Gardens 利苑

Our second Dim Sum Review 點心系列  is Lei Gardens 利苑! Compared to Lung King Heen (review) at 4 Seasons, Lei Gardens which is also Michelin-starred (TST and IFC Branch), offers a more relaxed dining experience. Frequently visited by celebrity families, Lei Gardens is unpretentious but offers excellent service and high quality Chinese dim sum.

They have a few different branches in Hong Kong, I found the Tsim Sha Tsui branch has the best quality dim sum, while the one at Elements Mall is also quite good and is a convenient lunch location for people working in Central. Service is excellent and warm. Despite the fact that IFC branch is being rated as Michelin-starred, I have heard mixed reviews about it.

Prices: > HK$300/ person

Address: several locations – please refer to Lei Gardens’ website

Overall, I prefer Lei Gardens over Lung King Heen. I prefer traditional dim sums over Lung King Hee’s modern ones. There are a lot of food which I’d recommend at Lei Gardens – the Shrimp Dumplings are moist and stuffed with fat shrimp; the Roasted Pork has a nice crisp to the skin; the Xiao Long Bao is moist and not too dry; my favorite include their Chinese soup and Jellyfish head with cucumbers (拍青瓜海蜇頭) which stimulates your appetite!
