The street food is much better. The ratings have been hyped. Waiters are treating you as if you have not enough funds to be eating here.

The leg of goose I had here was quite nice and the decor and atmosphere make it exactly the kind of place I would have been thrilled to try upon first moving to Hong Kong but now, having had lots of Cantonese BBQ elsewhere, it’s...clear that this place has a few problems. Firstly, no vegetables with the meat and rice? At all? $29 extra seemed a bit cheeky. Secondly, I was charged for a pack of tissues to wipe my hands, which I have never had happen to me anywhere else, ever. Thirdly, there are much MUCH better places (the pork here didn’t taste that great at all) doing similar food relatively nearby for close to half the price. Overall, this place was a bit of a let down I am sorry to say.More

Dry and tough goose meat, possibly kitchen leftovers. A complete and total waste of money. Michelin, please take note.

I was expecting really good roast goose at Yak Lok from all the reviews I read, but I thought it didn't live up to the hype. I liked the crispy skin, but it ends there. The flavor was only ok, and the breast meat was...dry. The dark meat was better. The roast pork was average. The roast pig was very good with a great crunchy skin and minimal fat. Prices were high for this kind of fare. I'll go elsewhere for roast goose.More

Depending on the time you may wait in line, and will probably share your cramped table with others. But this is kind of normal in HK Central, and people generally stay out of each other's way. We tried a few well-known places and the goose...here was the best. I recommend the goose breast for Western palates - it's as dark but juicier and more flavorful than turkey thigh. The goose hindquarter is for more adventurous eaters. Go early in the day as they often run out.More

This place is the best spot to find rather unique meal in Hong Kong. The Roast Goose. Fragrant, succulent and delicious. A meal to die for.

Good thing about this little resto , it opens early at 10am , food was delicious , we ordered roast goose , roast pork and char siu pork.. we dont mind the tiny space since the food is delicious. Menus are in english . Better...come early rather than lunchtime , cause the seating area is very limited .More

Excellent roast goose restaurant in SoHo. You come here for the food, not the ambience or the service. Compared to Kam´s in Causeway Bay the goose tasted slightly better at Yat Lok (less greasy, more crispy).

We were there early enough to catch the goose servings when they were freshly roasted. The skin was still crispy and meat flavourfully juicy. The other roast meats were good too. Price is also reasonable compared to some of the other restaurants and it’s easily...accessible in Central area.More

I went there at 6pm and only waited less than 3 mins. Dinner time probably has shorter queue than lunch time.

No reservations. For walk in only. Go there by 11am as the line can get very long.
