Opted for a lighter lunch at Yung Kee and focused mainly on their dim sum selection alongside the must-try Signature Charcoal Roasted Goose. The goose, as expected, was a treat—perfectly roasted with that unique flavor that keeps people coming back. For dim sum, the Steamed...Shrimp and Pork Dumplings were a highlight—delicate and flavorful. I also tried the Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce, which were wonderfully seasoned and tender, a great example of this traditional favorite done right. It was a refreshing change to enjoy lighter fare that didn't compromise on taste or quality. The ambiance at Yung Kee, as always, was welcoming and ideal for a relaxed midday meal. It’s definitely a spot that manages to balance the simplicity of dim sum with the decadence of their signature dishes well.More

Grabbed takeout from Yung Kee to sample their famous Rice with Signature Charcoal Roasted Goose and the Preserved Egg and Pickled Ginger. Both were fantastic, even in a to-go box! The goose was tender and flavorful, and the preserved egg and ginger had such a...distinct taste – I can see why it's a favorite. This takeout was just a taste of what Yung Kee offers, and I'm excited to go back and try more dishes in the restaurant next time!More

We planned ahead and ordered the Stewed Goose in Casserole from Yung Kee. It was fantastic—full of flavor and so much of it that even five of us couldn’t finish it. We ended up with leftovers, which were just as good the next day. The...other dishes were decent too, but the goose was really something special. Yung Kee offered us a laid-back evening with tasty food and friendly service. It’s a great place if you’re in the mood for some traditional Cantonese cuisine in a relaxed setting.More

We picked Yung Kee for a final get-together before our friend heads overseas, and it was the perfect spot for a farewell meal. We went for some classics: the Roasted Goose was fantastic—juicy and flavorful with that crispy skin you hope for. We couldn't resist...the Barbecued Crispy Pork Belly either, which was just as good. We also tried the Deep-fried Prawn with Mini Crab Roe, a real treat with its crunchy exterior and juicy inside. The Scrambled Egg with Crab Meat and Vermicelli was a nice lighter dish that balanced out our meal. The place had a comfy vibe that made our evening relaxed and special. It was a great way to say goodbye, filled with laughs and good food. Definitely made our last dinner together memorable!More

We haven't been back in years and we are not a fan of goose but took our oversea relatives since I think this restaurant is an icon in HK. The Suckling pork is good but so are some other restaurants. BBQ Pork and the dim...sum are alright but not impressive for the price they charged. However the simple basic sweet & sour pork was actually pretty bad not to mention how much it is. Service was alright and love the decor / ambience of an old school elegant snobbish feel.... But sadly to say there are too many top notch places with better foods, services and environment for the same money, so it will be a long while before we will return again.More

Good location and the place to eat when you have visitors however you have to know what you want to order. Some of the dishes are a hit or miss. The venue itself is very big so they are able to accommodate a big party.

Just popped into Yung Kee after its facelift and it’s still the cozy spot I remember, especially with the old staircase still there – really brings back memories. Had the Roasted Goose, and it was spot on as always: crispy skin, tender meat. Didn’t try...everything, but the place was buzzing, and the Beef Brisket in Soup from the next table had me planning my next visit already. The mix of the new decor with those classic touches makes for a great vibe – it’s like stepping back in time but with a fresh twist. Yung Kee’s still got it, blending comfort, tradition, and some seriously good food.More

Found myself at Yung Kee recently, craving something authentic. The Barbecued Pork was a hit – tender, flavorful, with just the right amount of char. The combo of Preserved Egg and Pickled Ginger was an unexpected delight, offering a sharp, tangy contrast that was quite...refreshing. The Stir-fried Garoupa Fillet with Vegetables was another winner – light, with the garoupa cooked to perfection. The place has a chill vibe, making it an easy pick for anyone wanting a straightforward, tasty meal without the fuss. Yung Kee keeps things simple and tasty, perfect for a casual lunch or dinner.More

Last time I was in Hong Kong for the Lunar New Year was before the pandemic hit, and Yung Kee was a highlight. Coming back after everything, I noticed they've spruced the place up during the downtime. It’s got this new, classy yet comfy vibe...now, which is pretty cool. Had to get the Signature Charcoal Roasted Goose again – it’s just as good as I remember. Crispy on the outside, tender inside. Also tried the Barbecued Crispy Pork Belly this time, and it was spot on. Didn’t dive into everything on the menu, but what I had didn’t disappoint. It’s nice to see Yung Kee keeping the tradition alive, especially around Lunar New Year. It feels like a piece of normalcy returning. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town and looking to get a taste of those festive vibesMore

On a recent business trip to Hong Kong, time was of the essence, and I found myself in need of a quick meal. Opting for takeout, I tried the Rice with Signature Charcoal Roasted Goose Leg, not expecting much more than convenience. To my surprise,...the dish was both satisfying and flavorful. The goose leg was well-prepared with a nice balance of crispy skin and tender meat, accompanied by a portion of rice that made for a fulfilling meal without any fuss. For business travelers looking for a quick, decent meal in the hustle of Hong Kong, this option proved to be a practical choice. It's a straightforward, tasty solution when dining in isn't possible.More

Yung Kee is as classic as it gets for Cantonese cuisine in Hong Kong. Stepping into the newly renovated space feels like going back in time. The decor artfully balances old-school charm with modern accents. You can't miss the vintage fixtures watching over the dining...room, while artsy chandeliers and stained glass add warmth. We came hungry and went straight for their legendary roast goose. The skin cracked crisply to reveal succulent, fatty meat underneath. Each smoky, savory bite of goose was sublime, especially with the tangy plum sauce. Beyond the goose, we sampled some of Yung Kee's other specialty dishes. The Braised Chicken and Taro Casserole highlighted expert Cantonese braising technique, with fork-tender chicken and taro melting together. The Sauteed Prawns with Asparagus and Black Fungus was a vibrant mixture of plump shrimp and fresh vegetables. The polished new digs, stellar goose and innovative classics reinforce why Yung Kee has stayed an icon for over eight decades. They creatively update traditions while staying faithful to Cantonese essence in an inviting setting.More

Had a meal at Yung Kee and it was a real treat. The Barbecued Crispy Pork Belly was fantastic – crispy on the outside and just the right amount of tender on the inside. The Stir-fried Fresh Milk and Egg White in Shunde Style was...something different for me; light and delicate, it was a nice contrast to the pork. Also enjoyed the Sweet and Sour Pork with Fresh Pineapple – the pineapple really made it pop. Tried the Sauteed Eggplant with Crab Meat too, a great combo of flavors and textures.

Recently revisited Yung Kee, a place I used to go to with my family as a kid. It felt like stepping back in time, but with a fresh twist. The Signature Roasted Goose was just as amazing as I remembered – crispy, juicy, and packed...with flavor. Tried a few other dishes too, like the Roasted Suckling Pig and Crispy Spare Ribs, which were all solid. The Pea Sprout with Shredded Chicken was a nice, lighter touch to the meal. The vibe's still warm and welcoming. Service was friendly and brought back memories of old-school hospitality. Great to see Yung Kee maintaining its charm and quality over the years. Definitely a spot worth revisiting for anyone looking to relive some good old days or just enjoy some classic Cantonese cuisine.More
