The Dining Room, Causeway Bay

There’s really not a shortage of restaurant in Hysan Place. It has taken me a while to try this restaurant, Dragon and I were shopping one Friday night and we decided to give this place a go, ‘The Mother’ joined us afterwards as he too wanted to try this restaurant. Thankfully we were there early and was seated immediately, the queues at this place is ridiculously long! It’s good but not sure if I would wait 30 40 mins to be seated – but then again that’s me, I just don’t like to queue.

The menu is very similar to Din Tai Fung I thought, Shanghainese food – xiao long bao, pan fried dumplings and noodles – and that is exactly what we ordered. We started with a very refreshing drink – for the life of me I can’t remember what it’s called, apple soda with apple vinegar jelly. The most unsettling thing is the ice cube that flashes when in glass!

We had to order 2 servings of the xiao long bao. Dragon absolutely loved them! Not so much the pork but the skin, she ate 4 of them on her own. The skin I thought was a little thick, I still prefer Din Tai Fung’s which is much thinner.

The noodles Dragon loved, she pretty much ate half of it. It was cooked just the way she liked it and with it was the fried chicken fillet. Unfortunately the chicken fillet was a little dry and tough.


The pan fried dumplings we all loved! The outside of the bun was crispy and inside was bursting with juice. Definitely one of my favourites

We didn’t have any dessert at The Dining Room, I have been craving the Uji Matcha Smoothie from via tokyo and believe me it did not disappoint! Perfect for a hot day, the slushy matcha was just perfect, not too sweet and not too creamy. It certainly went down nicely.

Service and food at The Dining Room was pretty decent, I quite like the layout and the communal dining table. Food was very similar to Din Tai Fung but ‘The Mother’ and I agreed that we both still prefer Din Tai Fung.

    I love how so many kids have an insatiable appetite for noodles! That matcha smoothie looks awesome too – so refreshing in the humidity of HK!
