Yung Kee Review

Close to Hong Kong's famous nightlife and dining district of Lan Kwai Fong, Yung Kee has become a local institution since it first opened shop as a street-food stall in 1942. The food is authentic Cantonese, served amid riotous decor and writhing gold dragons. Locals come here for roast goose with beautifully crisp skin and tender meat, as well as dim sum. Other excellent dishes include the "cloudy tea" smoked pork, which needs to be reserved a day in advance, and deep-fried prawns with mini crab roe. More adventurous palates may wish to check out the thousand-year-old preserved eggs.

    My last few visits to Yung Kee have not been so rewarding and my last visit was disappointing to say the least. The food including the Roast Goose was average and I would rate only the Century Egg as good. The prices are ridiculous for the quality and poor service. I may venture to try the 4th floor or the Club but for now Yung Kee is off my list.

    Goose was great!

    The Goose was wonderful. The eggs were very, very odd. Waiter was less that wonderful.
