Dim Sum Library - Admiralty HK
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.
We had an amazing dinner with delicious and innovative dimsum and other dishes. Despite the amount of fabulous restaurants in Hong Kong we tend to come here twice during our stays. Like this time too, we’ll dine there twice.
we’ll be back!
Good food with interesting options. However, not too many choices if you are vegetarian or allergic to shrimp. A bit overpriced. The service and ambiance were great.
One of our favourites dim sum options. It is so convenient and one place we can also take family and friends and be confident they will enjoy the experience
Excellent venue fabulous food you have to have the chicken really really reasonably priced even the red wine fantastic ambience I love this place
Really good authentic dim sum and an easy walk from our hotel.
This was recommended by friends and did not disappoint.
We actually visited the new one in Elements which I previously notified open table. Great food as it is new the didn’t have a liquor license . Food spicier than we are used to but delicious
Excellent place for any celebration or special occasion, even for an after work dinner. Nice place to visit during vacations and a must for Dim sums or special- HK dishes
The food was delicious and service was good. However, the price is a bit on the high side and the choice of dim sum was limited. I would like to see a bigger menu next time!
A favourite place to visit although turning up without a reservation especially at lunchtime can be hazardous. Always buzzy, food is good, but the waiting staff are sometimes rather pressed and do not look around to see who needs service.
The food quality is good and service is excellent. However the food portion is too small. Also if we can have lunch set or discount offered, it would be perfect !
Consistent quality of food and prompt service. Innovative dishes. Could do with more vegetable options.
Made a reservation at 9pm, we were still eating main dishes and was asked to pay the bill, hadn’t even finished eating, had to rush through dessert and they cut off the music and turned the lights on brighter. We were the last table in the restaurant and felt like we were being pushed out, DONT take reservations at 9pm if you are asking them to leave at 9:45. It’s not fair and ruined our evening.
The service was really fast and rude. They make us paid in the middle of our dinner. The food is good, the service not at all.
Dim sum Library was excellent. We went in our first night as close to our hotel.
Superb food all very tasty.
Service was also attentive.
One small criticism was as we were the last people in the restaurant we felt a little rushed as the staff were seemingly keen to finish their shift. I did not detract from our evening. Super food and worth a visit.
Delicious food as always. We especially loved the hargau with truffle. Service was attentive without being in your face. Definitely one of my favourite places for lunch
Fantastic food and service great ambiance just be aware that you will moved from your table after your allotted lunch time otherwise all good
Your nouvelle cuisine dim sum did not impress me. I rather stick to the traditional dim sum and the more authentic ambiance. Sorry, I'm an old-fashioned old man.
Service was poor, we had to set up our table ourselves and remove the extra chairs we had made a booking for six and the table was set up for eight
After finding an article citing the reataurant as having an exceptionally interesting twist on Hong Kong cuisine and judging from the photos and description of the place I traveled across town from Kowloon to have dinner. The article failed to mentionthat it was located in a shopping mall anf the photos made it seem as if it had windows overlooking a vista. I ordered the puff beef pastry appetizer, whish was good and the fois grois on eggs which was sadly disappointing. Still hungry I followed up with the crispy chicken, average.
No need to put dress code if it is not strictly enforced.
we booked at a table for 11:45am, but our guest arrived late. we were told repeatedly by your waiter and manager that we can only keep the table until 1:15pm. Closing to 1pm, your manager obviously made a point by clearing all our dishes and cutlery from our table and push us to settle the bill immediately. We were embarrassed by the situation. Obviously your people only try to make the most of money from the table but missed value of service and customer relationship. I was told by other people they had bad experience with your restaurant, now I know what they meant.
Head waiter was VERY helpful in ordering food. Service was exceptional. Food is always very good. My guests were very impressed.
Always a great place for lunch. Good and consistent quality food.
delicious and fancy restaurant :) awesome!! I would like to visit again
A modern western take of dim sum place. Some creative dim sum dishes like "dan dan xiao long bao" was quite good. It's bit pricey but great to have your overseas guests who may not feel so comfortable with real local dim sum places.
Very tasty food. Restaurant is a little dark but always busy and worth a try.
The food is great & the service is very good too.
I only ever have problems with my glass of champagne always being flat....Please ask that the champagne be sealed properly or not kept open for too long.
Blending Cantonese, Japanese its name ,Dim Sum Library, reflects its effort and passion👍
I loved the interior of the restaurant very beautiful, the menu is very interesting and you can try many things, food was awesome and presentation of dishes was also great but service was extremely poor. The only nice smiling person was the lady who poured tea for me the rest of the staff wearing suits so i was expecting they were managers and would at least introduce the dishes they could barely speak and almost” throw” dishes on our table, they delivered the food all at same time (5/6 dishes) and first of all the table wouldn’t fit all of them so i ended up organizing the space as the waiter wasn’t able to... secondly but most important all hot dishes got cold in couple of minutes so we ended up eating everything cold... was a bit disappointing and i really wish i could have enjoyed the food as it is supposed to be served but we ended up exactly like eating cold soups...
Not sure if i will go back considering the wide choice of great restaurants in hong kong..
My wife is vegetarian. The vegetarian menu, most of the items contained chicken powder and thus, in reality, it should not be on the Vegetarian menu.
Bit on the pricey side but great food quality. Would recommend to everyone.
This restaurant is allergy-friendly, with its waiting staff knowledgeable about the ingredients used in their food. That is a priceless quality to have to stand out in Hong Kong’s F&B scene
This was open. There were chairs and tables. See you
Everything was great! Highly recommend
We tried most dim sum in the menu, it was delicious! The staffs were very nice and friendly, a must try in hong kong for sure!
expensive and lunch menus arent good compared to dinner
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.
