Cafe Kowloon is not my favourite place for yum cha, but sometimes you feel like the same stuff but at a different place. Before coming here, we booked about half an hour earlier and it was quite easy to get a table. Upon entering, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the table we were at was clean.
I decided to order all my yum cha favourites. The vegetarian spring rolls were disappointing as they were cooked earlier and the skin was no longer crunchy. The BBQ pork buns and BBQ pork pastry both had fatty bits of pork in them. The rest of the dishes were of an acceptable standard so no complaints there.
While it’s not a bad place to get yum cha, there were a few dishes that fell below expectations. The crowd and atmosphere were just not the same of their better competitors. Come here if you must and judge for yourself.
