Mongkok Dim Sum and Lounge is arguably one of the best places in the city to enjoy a casual dinner or a splendid cocktail. The restaurant is not only spacious, but comfortable, elegant and with just the right lighting to make the experience all the more relaxing. Located at the end of LiouHe Road (the street made famous by its night market) close to the Love River, it occupies a space of approximately 2000 square feet on the first floor of the Hotel Holiday Garden.

On plush low-cut lounge style chairs and wide solid wood tables, you will enjoy steam cooked dishes made famous in Hong Kong. The menu is organized into categories according to the cooking style, starting with the least expensive. Oil fried and steam-cooked entrees like the shrimp and yam roll are NT$50 - NT$78. There is the Japanese style sweet dishes of grilled yellow tort and the cold yam dessert from NT$50 - NT$170. Traditional plates such as Hot Pot and fried rice or noodles are also available at NT$180 - NT$200. Don't miss the Almond Shrimp Salad, a delicately fried shrimp cake smothered in almond chips for NT$78.

The drink menu is extensive, with a range of Japanese wines, cocktails, red and white wines and spirits from NT$160 - NT$500 per glass. Mongkok also serves the usual coffees, juices and teas from NT$60 - NT$120. Try their thirst-quenching grapefruit honey juice drink at NT$100. Happy Hour is everyday from 9 p.m. - 1a.m. The non-smoking policy is an interesting detail, where smoking is prohibited between the hours of 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. There is an English menu, and group bookings are made to accommodate ten people per package for up to 70 people.
