Square Meal Review of Joy King Lau ?

‘People queue up here for a reason’, according to one of Joy King Lau’s regular customers, & that is for the cavalcade of trusty dim sum – inexpensive, tasty & served up without any fiddle-faddle in a vintage Chinatown setting. Steamed delights include prawn har gau, Shanghai dumplings, prawn cheung fun, roast pork bun & pork ribs; then there are fried chicken’s feet, grilled chive cakes, squares of turnip paste & crispy won tons. By night, the four floors resound with groups munching their way through plates of crispy ‘seaweed’, sesame prawn toasts, hot & sour soup, chicken with cashew nuts & other mainstream fare. Better to come at the weekend for brunch with a few friends, order dumplings galore, then ‘sit back & watch as the bamboo baskets stack up’.
