Affordable (under $200)

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 at bargain prices, including Fridays, weekends, public holiday eves, and public holidays for an additional fee of $10.

You can indulge in all kinds of buns and bite-sized delicacies. The dining period is divided into lunch from 11 am, teatime from 2 pm, and dinner from 6 pm, but you’re welcome to eat for the whole five-and-a-half hours, should you be able to stomach it.

Food-wise, it serves understated but palatable cuisine, including Tainan-style Ta-a noodles, Mongolian lava egg custard buns, and the signature pork-stuffed Goubuli steamed buns. Considering that it’s very competitively priced, the dining experience is bound to be a bit cramped, so be prepared to sit back-to-back with other patrons.
