Dim Sum Library
These tasty new creations include "Black Truffle Har Gau", "Dan Dan Xiaolong Bao", "Black Pepper Wagyu Beef in Millefeuille pastry", "Cheung Fan with Squid Mousse and Crispy Tofu"and" Hokkaido King Crab and Sea Urchin Spring Roll" are among the delectable dim sum dishes on offer.
Unlike traditional dim sum restaurant, Dim Sum Library is fronted by a stunning Chinoiserie cocktail bar, guests can enjoy a full selection of classic cocktails, wines and spirits as well as bespoke Chinese tea cocktails. For those who enjoy a game of Mahjong in the afternoon, the tables at Dim Sum Library’s Mahjong Parlour, discretely concealed at the rear of the restaurant, are a perfect place to play.
It has some unique takes on traditional dim sum but maybe a little overpriced.
It's the fourth time that I had lunch at Dim Sum Library. But this time we were informed to return the table at 1:30. But before the time, the waitress kept pushing us and collected the plates without asking us, and made us settle the bill before we finish. It's not 1：30 yet! The waitress is kind a rude and made us very uncomfortable.
I don't think we will come back to this restaurant again.
We always enjoy the food at the Dim Sum Library. A twist on local cuisine which works.
The quality of the food is good, but the service is extremely bad. When we request the toothpick, the waitress threw the box to us rudely, I was so surprise with her attitude.
Service was not good. Always looking for me. So I'm very uncomfortable until eating food. I felt they want we leave there. And to much pushing order drink. But ambiance is really good. Also test is good.
Stylish place with pleasant atmosphere and great food. Only criticism I have is in regards to the service - very efficient and professional, but lacking some warmth - just a smile, to make the difference, and for the whole experience to be even better.
The food was amazing but the staff need a lot of training. The staff were not attentive, and the services we received were below average. They ordered wrong stuff, which we put up with it. The bowl was leaking when we have the soup, the staff cleaned it up and took the bowl away, didn’t give us a replacement. Then the staff tried to take our plates away and clear the table while we are still waiting for more food to come. I think the concept of the restaurant is upmarket chinese food, but the staff runs it as fast in and out Dim Sun place.
Good modern dim sum but the place is too dark and prices are quite expensive.
Worth trying out once.
The quality of food is good and it is too expensive. 干炒牛河 Fried noodle with beef costs HKD280, which is an reasonably high price.
Good service and setting with a nice range of dim sum. They make an effort to have both the classic dishes along with a few modern interpretations. A little on the pricey side, and they don’t seem to be consistent in portion sizing. Some dishes come with 2 pieces, others with 3 and then others with 4. In an ideal world they would be flexible on number of pieces depending on the number of guests.
Once is enough kind of dimsum place. But it was nice to try.
We have ordered about hkd 945 and 45 mins into our meal with many empty tables , there is a big tall more chubby captain came and tell us that we have to return table in 15 mins as it is companies policy , I told him that I have not even ordered main dishes of rice and noodles and dessert , that they should fill up the other tables with 5 people first and then if we hang around without eating , then they have the right to kick us out but since the inside and the area we are eating have at least 2 other 5 people tables , while we are eating , and want to order more , they can fill up the other tables first and let us order more and finish with our meal, he said it is company’s policy, he can’t do anything , I got so upset I cancelled my dinner booking for 5 immediately . This is not the first time this big chubby captain did that !! I am not eating at your restaurant anymore as there is Mott 32, china tang , china club, Hong Kong club , lei garden , john Anthony’s , Kokomi , thai Basil , not to mention my marriot and grand Hyatt and Conrad memberships !! many choices !! So we paid bill and went to Lumi for dessert & coffee ,,
Food is not hot enough. The overall experience is getting worse.
Don't go during lunch time. It's loud, very busy and the staff rush you to order, eat and quickly leave. They came over several times to ask are we done and remind that we need to give back the table. They should ask instead, how everything is and if we need anything else? I had to remind them to help refill my tea pot and to pls bring us the dessert menu. In the end, decided to leave and have dessert somewhere else.
Great restaurant in Pacific Place amongst all the shopping, food is delicious and service excellent
I expected too much :( Atmosphere was good. Black truffle shrimp dumplings were good but others nothing special.
Delicious food, but service was not that good due to the busy lunch hours.
It was first time to have the truffle dim-sum. I was worried before having the dishes, but it was quite moreish. So I ate 2 more dishes.
Premium dim sum with traditional favourites and dim sum with a modern twist. Make sure you order the crispy truffle chicken. Wonderful.
Great modern take on Dim Sum. The portions were also good sized, especially the noodles.
Great food! high quality and special tastes. We love to come there!
Below my expectation. The food was ok. But service was not so good.
Good environment and food.
Dim sum and desserts are good!
Dim Sum done with class, precision and modernity. Very good food.
Excellent food that is served quickly. Reasonable prices.
The food exceeded expectations! I highly recommend the chicken with black truffle and crispy skin, as well as the wagyu with black pepper puffs - phenomenal!
Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice little spot, snugly situated inside a shopping mall ! Great Dim Sum as well .
Excellent as always! Love this place and would really recommend it to anyone who wants to try Dim Sum with a twist
Nice food great service.
Price can be 20% lowered
Great food, but much of the wine on the menu was sold out. Also quite noisy, but the quality of the food is outstanding and makes up for the shortcomings. Highly recommend.
Good but seats were limited
Delicious! Lovely dim sum with an interesting twist. Only downside was one of our choices was sold out
I felt rushed to finish the meal when there weren’t people waiting
Worst service I’ve ever experienced. Outrageously expensive for below average food. Will never go back
Very good fusion dimsum. When you get sick of ‘real dimsum’ at some point, go to here. Definitely recommend.
Superb food, great ambiance. We are a family of four, each made their own choices then we shared. Some we ordered more of. The dessert was also delicious - I thought I might not like them but the mango and the chocolate was delicious.
I wanted to change my order after I ordered in 3mins. They said i cannot change. Just adding is ok.
And I dropped off one of the dimsum on the floor. They didnt care it at all. It was only 2pics dimsum menu. No asking to order it again.
I’ve been coming to Dim Sum Library for a few years now and when it first opened it was spectacular - absolutely delicious twists on classics. However as the years have passed the quality of the food seems to have gone down. It’s still very good but the attention to detail is gone. Will definitely come back but not if it continues to trend toward mediocrity (it’s too pricey for that!)
Food tastes good. Creative. Priced high for what it is but it is in Pacific Place Mall, hence it puts it’s price points based on the high rents!
Fantastic and attentive service, great food and really fabulous atmosphere.
