Forget stale and cold dim sum buffets, slowly wilting away underneath a subpar heating lamp! There is nothing better than having piping hot, made-to-order dim sum coming straight out of the kitchen to your table, elegantly served in steaming bamboo baskets. Oh, and they’re on an all-you-can-eat basis too, meaning you can chow down on as many fluffy char siu bao and meaty siu mai as you desire. If the mere description has triggered your appetite, read on to see our picks of the best all-you-can-eat dim sum restaurants in Hong Kong, where you can savour more than 30 varieties of Cantonese delicacies at darn good prices.

Star of Canton

As a highly-regarded Cantonese restaurant, Star of Canton’s All-You-Can-Eat Luncheon Dim Sum ($148) is an unbelievable bargain. Luxuriate in more than 70 types of made-to-order dim sum for two hours. Some must-eat options include the Siu Mai with Quail Egg, Mango Pomelo Sago, and Crispy Pastry with Honey Roasted Pork and Apple. They also adopt a thoughtful ordering method, wherein instead of ordering per basket, you can put in the exact number of dim sum you would like. For example, if you like siu mai and you enjoy some “me alone dim sum time”, simply ordering two siu mai is perfectly acceptable (given that’s enough for your craving). Star of Canton, 2/F, Infinitus Plaza, 199 Des Voeux Road Central, Sheung Wan | (+852) 2799 9383 When: Monday–Sunday, 11am–4pm (2-hour dining limit) How much: $148 per person with additional tea charges; free for children up to 1m in height Promotion: Each guest will receive complimentary Crispy Pastry with Abalone and Simmer-Boiled Fish Maw with Dumpling dishes

Dim Sum Bar

Situated in Harbour City at Tsim Sha Tsui is the stylish and elegant Dim Sum Bar, and it’s not like the typical dim sum diners you’ll find in town. With a touch of modernism, it boasts an exquisite crimson interior, and much like its decor, they offer elegant dishes made with top-tier ingredients. Highlights include the Xiao Long Bao with Black Crab in almost paper-thin wrapping and flooded with delightful broth. The precision-made Braised Beef Brisket with Radish, replete with vigorous meaty flavours, is also stunning. For a 2-hour dining limit, the All-You-Can-Eat Teatime Dim Sum ($188) is an incredible steal; dishes that normally cost $50 and upwards can now be served endlessly to your table. Dim Sum Bar, Shop G103, G/F, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, 3–27 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui | (+852) 2175 3100 When: Monday–Sunday (including Public Holidays), 2.30pm–9.30 pm (2-hour dining limit) How much: $188 per person Promotion: Each guest will receive a complimentary Baked Bird’s Nest Tart; each table will receive a complimentary Snacks Platter, featuring Deep-Fried Sole Fish Fillet with Fermented Bean Curd, Deep-Fried Eggplant with Fried Garlic, and Pan-Fried Salt and Pepper Bean Curd

Sheung Moon Chinese Cuisine

Here’s something for those with a formidable appetite. Located in Tsuen Wan, Sheung Moon Chinese Cuisine offers All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum every day (including public holidays!) where you can indulge in all kinds of buns, bite-sized delicacies, and Cantonese dishes for over five hours at bargain prices. The dining period is divided into a luncheon session (from 11am) and teatime session (from 2pm), but you’re welcome to eat out for the whole five and half hours, should you be able to stomach it. Now, food-wise, it serves understated but palatable cuisines, including Sata Andagi, Goubuli Steamed Buns, and Cool Chicken with Shaoxing Wine. Considering it to be keenly priced, the diner is going to be a bit cramped, so be prepared to sit back-to-back with other patrons. Sheung Moon Chinese Cuisine, 12/F, Emperor Plaza, 55 Chung On Street, Tsuen Wan | (+852) 3188 9978 When: Monday–Sunday (including Public Holidays) from 11am–4.30pm How much: $75–$88 (Monday–Friday); $83–$96 (Saturday–Sunday, Public Holidays)

Dining House

Dining House is located in the four-star hotel Dorsett Wanchai with elegant decor and plush seating. With a recommendation by the Michelin Guide under its belt, it’s also a popular haunt amongst local celebrities. Though each type of dim sum is rather costly to consume outside of the all-you-can-eat session—around $60 per basket—you can now delight in more than 30 types of exquisite dim sum with only under $200. Order the exceptional Scallops and Prawn Dumpling, Steam-Fry Buns with Beef, and Deep Fried Black Truffle Dumplings when you’re there. The dining limit is capped at a brief 90 minutes—which, compared to our usual three-hour yum cha sessions, is no time at all—so be sure to grasp the time to relish all your favourite dim sum dishes. Dining House, 1/F, Dorsett Hotel, 387–397 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai | (+852) 2881 5569 When: Friday to Sunday and Public Holidays from 11.30am–2.30pm How much: $168 per person
