    Overrated. Roasted goose was all right but nothing special. Everything was extremely overpriced.

    Great decoration, taste so so, a bit expensive. Suitable for large group and full course meal than simple one.

    The roast goose is questionably, but the char siu is delicious.

    The most famous roasted goose in Hong Kong, which probably means it isn't disgusting.

    Roasted goose & chicken - overrated, standard has dropped. Century egg - those who like it will enjoy the gooey yolk that has strong alkaline taste. Seafood fried rice - very ordinary but pricey.

    Can find good roast meats and one of the easier roast meat places to find. Try to get a table in the first or second floor because the menu gets more expensive in the higher floors!

    Order what everyone recommends! I particularly loved the century egg! Not the jelly fish!

    Most wait staff were very attentive and spoke English well. Goose great, but so was the soy-soaked chicken, shrimp fried rice, and seasonal veggies.

    Used to come here often as a kid. Now it's much more touristy. Goose is still good but price is much inflated.

    Roast goose is still good but the vege dishes too salty. Maybe will go try the 'split' relative store next time.

    Overrated. The decorum is awesome but service not very friendly and food just average. Overpriced: paid 849 HKD for two.

    This 福建炒飯 ($170 for dine-in, $130 for takeaway) doesn't tastes really good

    Very bad customer service. I just told off one of the rude receptionists. And only then I am respected as a customer.

    The additional sauce is what makes the roast goose very good but the meat ain't that tender :(

    The goose here is simply the best. Haven't had better in HK. The spicy frog legs are also good. They could work on customer service though, slow as hell

    Love the food, but must be tough with some of the captains. Must tell them what you want or they put you at a table that spoilt your meal!

    Not as good as it was. Last visited a couple of times in 05 & 06. Since then their prices have rocketed & service tonight seriously amateurish. Then I read the place now has a Michelin star?! Avoid.

    Roasted goose is so good!would have been better if it was piping hot. Couldn't finish and ask them to pack the remaining, it was very sweet of them to cut up into smaller pieces and add more sauce!

    This Cantonese eatery won an honorable mention for the 2013 Foodie Forks Legendary Local Food award! It's hard to resist their roast goose!

    Staff is very friendly, helpful & patient. And very honest! When the total bill looked strange, she redid it three times to make sure it was correct and apologized. A pleasant surprise for HK.

    If you want cool factor order winter melon soup. It's also very good

    This place does serve good roasted goose but it has lost its shine that it once had. It's just overrated and touristy.

    Must go restaurant every time you visit HK. If you come alone, still there's an option of take away... Roasted Goose w/rice for HKD38
  • Wenyi H.

    Good goose. And fried rice. But horrible Char Siu. One of the worst in HK. And oh well overpriced.

    Meat lovers must come here early. By 9:06pm, white chicken and suckling pig were sold out. (Roast goose still in stock though.)
  • Akkaranant T.
    Roasted Goose is a must! But you have to come early, otherwise they will be sold out. I always order combination of Roasted Goose, Crispy Pork & BBQ Pork. They are all tasty.

    A legendary Hong Kong brand, a successful biz story. But ended with a typical chinese family affairs drama...kind of sad. Roasted goose r not as good as before, lacking the passion in the making.

    Whole abalone soup means just that; 1 whole (e.g. not diced up) abalone in a cup of soup. Yummy but different.

    Thanks to its history, Yung Kee is just as popular with the locals as it is with those tourists lucky enough to hear about it so make this an absolute must when visiting Hong Kong... Read more

    For those dining alone or with a lower budget, get the BBQ rice bowl instead of ordering ala-carte. Comes with a layer of your choice of BBQ items and some veggies over a bowl of rice.

    Whilst everyone talks about their roast meats, their preserved duck egg is unbelievably good.

    the roast goose is what made Yung Kee famous, but they have so much more to offer here. Take the time to review the menu, many of the seafood dishes are excellent as well! Come with a large group!

    Michelin star rest? great food, but service horrible as hell. The male manager is especially grumpy. Left a bad taste in our mouths. Foreigners should takeaway the century eggs back home!

    A pale, overpriced image of its former self. Better char siu is down the road at Joy & Joy in Melbourne Plaza.

    One of the best Chinese cuisine restaurants in Hong Kong. Be ready to seriously overeat here!

    The BEST Roast Goose in the world! Must have with the slippery white noodle in master stock that just cannot be eaten properly with the provided chopsticks:)

    I die for this roast goose. Something about the combination of sauces. Just make sure it's hot. Deep fried spare ribs have nice flavor (good contrast to the sweetness of the goose) but are very fatty.
