Dim Sum Library, is a refreshing evolution of the time-honoured Cantonese tradition - offering a selection of delicious dim sum prepared with new ingredients, textures, flavours and presentation, served all day in an elegant Hong Kong tea room.

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.

    Table was too small and close to each other. The dim sum dishes were creative with some surprises in taste (e.g., spring rolls with seabass and pickled vegetables and beetroot dumplings with wild mushrooms). Rice rolls with shredded chicken and turnip cakes were so-so only.

    fanatstic food options and wonderful ambiance; not necessarily the place you'd go for 'value' moreover, a special occasion, making an impression or a little splurge.

    Though it seems there weren’t a lot of staff, the people who served us were friendly and genuine and worked very hard. I was a little disappointed some of the old favourites are no longer in the menu and that some items are only available at dinner service.

    When we first sat down, nobody attended to us, no tea offered. We had to keep calling the waiters for attention. We only got very good service after Pat showed up. The overall service level has dropped. Very sloppy!

    Good quality dishes, innovative and well prepared but small portions given the prices. Ran out of a few good dishes which is a good sign! Good cocktails and well worth trying.

    Gave me a hallway crap seat even though a bunch of table was available AND we actually made reservation. I don’t get it … Food is average , they try to throw a fusion flavor on the dim sum concept.

    One of my favorite restaurants for lunch. Their dim sum is outstanding. I love that they've taken the traditional Hongkongese cuisine and added a few twists here and there to make it super delicious.
