Why Saam Hui Yaat Restaurant is special ?

Saam Hui Yaat is a small teahouse located at Pokfulam Road that has been around since the 1960s. Its interior design is simple, and the signs of its age are clearly visible, with its tiled floor, metal fans, altar and furniture all partly covered in grease. Nonetheless, despite all these, it continues to draw locals back again and again with its food, namely its dim sum baskets, featuring popular delights like har gau, cheong fun and steamed rice dishes.

Starting at HK$9 per dim sum basket, Saam Hui Yaat is definitely the place to go for those on a budget, as well as to experience local life. Apart from dim sum, Saam Hui Yaat offers the usual rice and noodle dishes. Those unable to speak and read Cantonese should reconsider making a visit here, given that it is not tourist-friendly.


How to get to Saam Hui Yaat Restaurant?

To get there, the easiest way is to take the tram going west from Central or Sheung Wan MTR (take the trams going to Whitty Street Depot or Kennedy Town). Then, walk up the slope on Western St., until you get to Pokfulam Road.

This is a must go dim sum in Hong Kong. A rare breed of totally old school Cantonese Dim Sum joint. On top of very respectable dim sum and VERY affordable price, the service truly epitomized what Asian believe to be 人情味。。human touch. They only have a few tables indoor with air conditioning...we sat outside amidst HK summer heat but the owner insist to find us a table indoor seeing my elderly parents. We were touched and humbled by the gesture I can attest that this is like the cheapest dimsum in HK...but one that left alot of memories in our palate
