Review

Setting

Loong Toh Yuen immediately impresses with its charming oriental ambience and décor. Tables are spaced perfectly and adorned with simple Chinese tableware. The black lattice screens add a touch of Asian flair and gives the restaurant its unique character.   

Food

The dim sum selection is vast and the few we tried, including the deep fried beancurd sheets, steamed vegetable bun and the rice rolls with barbecue pork, were all served in traditional Cantonese style and were delicious quick eats – perfect to kickstart the appetite. The e-fu noodles, which may look a bit ordinary, were expertly cooked and mixed with flavourful mushrooms. We then settled for two mains: the braised aubergine and beancurd in clay pot, and the stir-fried shrimps with oatmeal. The braised aubergine was cooked and seasoned just right. However, the shrimp just missed the mark and may not suit all diners: those unfamiliar with the textural pairing of oatmeal and shrimp may be taken aback. However, the shrimp was fresh and succulent. We finished the meal with fried rice, which was comprised of ingredients that were of obvious high quality. 

Wine

We started with a premium jasmine tea, which arrived steeped to our liking, with the fragrance taking over our table. The wine selection proved to be a tad bit disappointing at Loong Toh Yuen, however, as choices are limited to a few regions in France, though there are some selections from China as well.

Service

Service was impeccable with servers working to create a lasting impression and ensuring that there were no errors. The manager also came over a few times to check on the table.   

Price   $$$$$

A meal for two will cost approximately HK$1,000, which we feel is good value for money for a traditional Cantonese meal in an historic setting in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui.
