Lung king Heen lunch- WD/WE

Hi everyone

Ill be heading over to hong kong sometime in July for lunch, but I'm currently undecided over whether I should do the weekday or weekend lunch menu. If I go for the weekday lunch, I'll be having the executive set menu with a few side orders of their more famous dim sum dishes, so I'll still get to try their dim sum regardless

I guess my question is: is the exec lunch menu worth having? Or does it pale
In comparison to the their dim sum?

    Their dim sum is the only thing worth going out of your way for, generally. Unfortunately, all of Hong Kong knows this, so good luck trying to land a reservation for weekend lunch.

      We just returned from HK and had Sunday lunch at Lung King Heen. It is a not to be missed Dim Sum expierence. We made a reservation 2 months in advance and were told they were booked up, and we were staying at the Four Seasons. On the day we ate there they were half empty, so keep on trying until you get in. Don't miss the BBQ pork buns with pine nuts....the best we have ever had, and only available on the weekends.

        They tend to save some tables or give preference to those staying there, which is not unexpected or unreasonable. You can also luck out on a walk-in, but don't recommend it unless you don't mind being disappointed.

          Thanks for all the input. I managed to secure a lunch reservation on a Sunday. What are the must order dim sum dishes?
