The overall meal was good; the food was unique and exciting compared to a regular dim sum restaurant.

The one thing that let us down is when there was a nice table in the main dining area the manager (dressed in a blue suit). Tried to seat us next to the washing up area at the back on a far table even though we booked in advance. When we complained he refused to move us first then after further attitude he finally did.

He then proceeded with this attitude every time he served us for the entire meal and when he served our rice rolls (cheung fun) he slapped them down so hard on the table that the soy sauce went on the table and we had to ask another waiter to clean up.

Food, Ambience! Perfect
Manager dressed in blue: fire this guy

Food was great as usual, but was shocked at the attitude of the manager. Will go to the Pacific Place branch instead next time.

Nice and unique dim sum, I especially enjoyed the sea urchin spring rolls and the spicy noodles. Tea is pretty good too. Nice spacious setting for catch up meals

staff training is definitely required for both manager level and waiter level
it would be a waste that Dim Sum library serves good food with below standard service
will visit again for the food and love to see an improvement in the service

Was a little surprised at the distance between tables , they were less than a meter apart inspite of more than 50% of the restaurant being cordoned off .
Other than this excellent as always

A bit pricy for the food they offer, although the service is good and the ambience is nice.

Unfortunately my husband and felt sick the next day. Both of us had cramps and bloated stomach. That was the only meal we ate outside.

Great menu, great service, food was excellent. It’s a bit overpriced so that’s why I gave them only 4 stars.

Special Dim Sun dinner with our kids who moved to Hong Kong six months ago. We have eaten our way thru various parts of the island during our two week visit, and the food and service at Dim Sum Library were tops!

We booked a table for 2 on the day of dining via OpenTable. When we arrived the restaurant on time, it was not busy at all. The waitress just causally led us to a table which is close to the front door. I think they should have planned the seatings ahead of our arrivals instead of just picking whatever table left for us to sit. We asked the waitress if we could sit inside which is supposed to be quieter and close to the windows, she did that but just halted half way through and said the more inside area was closed tonight. We thought it is a bit weird as people were sitting around that area but anyway we followed the instruction. However, the inside area was soon opened for seatings though the outside area wasn't full at all and our seats were very close to the table next to us and I could hear every single word the ladies next to me were chatting. The experiences wasn't up to my expectations given such a high-end dim sum place in such an elegant shopping mall. I think I won't be visiting DSL soon given that there are many other better options around.

I went to Dim Sum Library at Admiralty. I made the booking at Kowloong branch by mistake.

Although I have never been to the Kowloon one, the service, food and experience I had a Pacific Place Dim Sum Library was superb. I definitely will recommend Dim Sum Library, both HK and KLN branches, to anyone who would enjoy a culinary adventure.
