Consistently good Pork Buns. Service is topnotch from when you enter, taking your order, water refills, to getting the bill. Precise, systematic.

Food is also delicious, nothing has changed since they opened here in Megamall a couple of years ago. You've probably have tried it so their is nothing more to say. If your hackering for good pork buns... there is a Tim Ho Wan branch near you. Senior cards honored. Recommended.

I went back after xx months, the baked bun is still the best at PhP145/3 pieces. I couldn't say the same thing on the stir fry noodles. Plus service was slow.

Had a hankering for some Tim Ho Wan since last night and I don't know why. Chose between their Megamall and SM North Edsa branches, and I chose the latter because there's a weekend sale there and those are fun. Got early before the after-office crowd and got seated immediately. I got the steamed rice with chicken, sausage and mushroom, some pork shrimp dumplings and some vermicelli rice rolls with pig's liver. The chicken, sausage rice has a special sauce poured on it while it's piping hot, and when you mix the rice thoroughly with this sauce you get a really good flavor. I don't normally finish my rice serving but I finished this one with gusto. P.S. no photos of dumplings and rolls. Forgot.

My 3rd visit

Congee was okey, serving portion is just for one person. I find the pork bun a little bit sweet compared to DTF. Still has very limited choices on the menu. Would waif for some changes before i would come back.

Tim Ho Wan's first branch here in the Philippines. During its opening week/month, I remember throngs of people trying to line up for the Michelin star Dumpling restaurant of HongKong. That queue is not evident anymore (well maybe during my visit) must be because of the other branches which has opened in other malls. The restaurant has a big seating capacity (both inside and outside). I haven't managed to sit inside still since the place was packed even during merienda time.

The menu was a condensed version of the HK menu. I think they only included their best sellers in their Philippine menu and selected what would sell to the Filipino market. Among the famous Tim Ho Wan specialties are the Baked Pork Buns, Pork and Shrimp Siomai and the Prawn Dumplings.

Yesterday, I ordered the Prawn Dumplings or the Hakaw, 4 dumplings filled with balls of shrimp served in a bamboo steamer. My food took some time to arrive but gladly it was still hot. The dumpling wrapper was a bit thick though and the prawns were just ok. A bit big but not that tasty compared to how their HK branch served it. As for the price (Php 160), for me it was cheaper compared to other food that can be ordered inside a mall. However, if you compare it to a Binondo dumpling restaurant or a food court stall serving the same dish it was a little bit overpriced. But since this is Michelin star quality, I think it was just okay.

Overall, I still like this restaurant and would come back again given the chance. I just hope that they maintain the quality in terms of food and service of the Tim Ho Wan restaurant same with the HK branch.

I really like their Spareribs Rice, Congee with Century Egg & Salted Egg, Vermicelli Roll with Shrimps!

Only comment on the spareribs rice is that it has so many bone fragments and the ratio of meat vs bone & cartilage is 1:2, meaning not enough meat 🤔.

Food is consistent even with their other branches.128077🏻

We never get tired of Tim Ho Wan, one of the most consistent restaurants in the Metro. It never fails to disappoint, and their food and service are always on point. For lunch today we ordered their signature baked buns, vermicelli roll with pork, fried noodles, beef ball with bean curd skin and their current special, this mushroom and chicken soup. A satisfying meal on a rainy afternoon.

Tim Ho Wan has been around for some time now, and I think this was my fourth time to dine here. For some people that’s not familiar with this restaurant, Tim Ho wan is Hong Kong’s most celebrated dim sum restaurant. It’s very affordable and fast dim sum place. The most popular on their menu that most of the world raved about is their Baked Bun with BBQ pork.

I will review some of their Chef’s special and some from their original menu.

- Tofu with pork floss (P130), this was my new favorite. The tofu was fried perfectly, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The pork floss over the tofu gives an additional taste but doesn’t overpower the tofu. Delightful!

- Dumpling with chili sauce (P150), I thought this will be spicy but it turns out not that fiery at all. But it’s still a good dumpling, something different but doesn’t wow-ed me.

- Chow Mien Stir Fried Noodle (P130), tried this stir fried noodle for the first time and find it as an okay dish, replacement for rice variations. The ingredients tossed with the noodle was cooked well and appetizing.

- Pork Dumpling with Shrimp (P150), my all-time favorite pork dumpling, as always it doesn’t stay on our table for more than 10 minutes, whole shrimp is generously added to the dumpling. Mouthwatering!

- Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (P120) hail to this buns! The buns itself give an oomph to this masterpiece. It was heavenly treat!

I liked Tim ho wan so much because it was reasonably priced and delivers good quality foods that will definitely fill your tummy.

I went here with my girl squad a few weeks ago. Glad that gone are the days when the line was so looooong. I’ve tried Tim Ho Wan for quite a few times, because they have a branch near my place which is in SM North.

After attending the Sunday Mass at the mall with my boyfie, I met up with one of my friends and her boyfriend. We waited for others to arrive as we also waited on the line. We were the first on the waiting list so it was fine. Though there are no more long lines as compared when they were new, you could see that the place could still get jam-packed, especially when it’s weekend.

Finally, we were seated in one of the couches. We were 8, but I guess the spot given to us was only meant for 6 persons, that we are almost sharing tables to the one behind us. We don’t have much choice since some of my friends were starving.

To be honest, I was never a fan of Tim Ho Wan. I do not see the fuss over their Pork Bun. I’ve tried it numerous times and I could only finish one piece of it. I also never liked their Spare Ribs. I love Chinese food that there are times I really crave for it. But with THW, I just don’t know. L During our discussion over Viber, I suggested that we try Din Tai Fung, since it is the newest restaurant in SM Mega Mall. Of course, with all the hype, I was intrigued to try. Majority won, but in favor of THW.  

Going back, while we were still waiting for two of our friends, one of my friends already started ordering:

1.    Baked Bun with BBQ Pork (3 pcs – Php145) – simply put Pork Bun, the star for all season, as the saying goes. The crowd’s favorite will always be in our bill. I’m not a sucker for it, but my brothers and my friends loved it. My brother even asked me to take home some for him when he knew I was in THW. I would say this is one is best eaten hot. The baked bun has a firm fluffy texture one would love, and it is filled with saucy, mild sweet barbecue pork slices. They used to allow limited orders per table of the Pork Bun to give way to other customers. I think you can order as much as you like now.

2.    Chow Mien Stir Fried Noodle (Php130) – this one was one of my favorite dishes, together with their Deep Fried Fish Fillet. The noodle was somewhat crispy, and has a sweet taste too. I took a spoonful out of curiosity and never thought I’d like it.

3.    Deep Fried Fish Fillet (N/A) – I forgot the price as this wasn’t on their menu, not sure if this was only a limited offer. It was one of the dishes that has a photo framed on the table, together with the Tofu with Pork Floss. This is my favorite! It was crunchy, and has a drizzled sweet sauce on top. One order wasn’t enough for me. Hehe.

4.    Tofu with Pork Floss (NA) – It was okay, the Tofu was soft inside. I always prefer everything crunchy and crispy. The pork floss was not as many as I thought it would be but it tasted good.

5.    Prawn Dumpling (Php160) – I love Hakaw! This one is something I always make sure to order in any Chinese Restaurant. Their dumplings are served in the Bamboo Steamer, so it’s served hot. I think I finished 2 orders alone. Haha.

6.    Pork Dumpling with Shrimp (Php150) – I’m not into pork meat, but I still tried it since it has a shrimp. It was as equally good as the Prawn Dumpling. It was generously filled with meat inside. Oh so yummy specially when dipped in a toyo-mansi sauce.

7.    Steamed Egg Cake (FREE) – this was served to us for free. I believe they have an on-going promo that you get one free when your bill reaches Php800 and above. This one is good for sharing. For me, the steamed egg cake could get pungent if eaten alone.

8.    Pork Bean with Black Bean Sauce (Php120) – I don’t like black bean. I shared a spoon with my boyfriend and I honestly couldn’t remember how it tasted. All I remember was my tongue got burnt. Haha! Yes, one thing I know about this dish is it takes too long to cool down because it’s placed in a stainless cup. So you gotta have some patience when eating this.

9.    Braised Chicken Feet with Abalone Sauce (Php120) – Didn’t try this. I think none of us ate it all. One of my friends took it home instead.

10. Spring Roll with Egg White (Php120) – One of my favorites too because it tastes super delish with their Special Sauce. You can always ask for more Special Sauce for free and they will give a bowl full of it. Haha. I literally dipped everything there! Haha.

11. Rice with Beef and Fried Egg (Php180) – One of my friends said it was ‘Ok, sakto lang.’

To be honest, I was never a fan of THW, BUT NOT until this latest one!!!  I suddenly got reminded that TIM HO WAN is a world-renowned Chinese Restautrant.

Surprisingly, I loved everything we ordered except the Chicken Feet which I did not try. I never learnt how to eat ‘Adidas’ as what we, Filipinos call it. Everything else tasted so good to me that day. I actually did not have my own order. I just literally tasted everything, which still got me so full. One of my friends said I’m the food taster of the group. Which I later on corrected, saying I’m only a foodie, who basically loves to eat and taste everything! Haha.

I guess one good thing that made me love Tim How Wan now was the fact that the crew was extra attentive to us that day. And I can tell that it was because of my beautiful friends. Sorry guys! We are all taken! Haha.

Additionally, I realized one thing after this eat-out - sometimes, it would take you a perfect timing, perfect mood, and perfect people to eat with, before finding out the greatness in things. Char! Haha.

This photo that my boyfriend took was just stunning. I only realized how much we ordered after I saw our bill. haha!  When it comes to price, I think it’s fair enough. It’s actually cheaper compared to other Chinese Restaurants I have tried. The price would lure you to order more until the bill was given to you, and you realize you over-ordered. Haha! We paid more or less Php4,000. Hey, it’s not just me, we have boys with us! Haha.

I will definitely be back because my boyfriend loves Chiness Food, and of course, I would love to have more of their fish fillet and that stir noodle!!! 128540128540128540

Before anything else, I would like to greet ya'll a happy happy valentine's day..

My boyfriend and I decided to go back to Tim Ho Wan to try their famous Pork Bun. It was our second time there unfortunately we werent able to taste it during our first so the moment we sat there, it was first on our list. Gosh, their pork bun is soooo delicious. I would like to eat some more if it werent for our bloated tummy we will still order again. Hahaha

For those who haven't tried it yet, Tim Ho Wan's Pork Bun is highly recommended 🤗128077128077 two thumbs up

Finally, we were able to try this with my family. I thought they wouldn't love it but so far, everything that we have ordered was finished up to last bite.

We have ordered one set of pork bun, pork dumpling with shrimp, congee, pork rib with black bean sauce and the other one with rice, their pancit which I think not really special just like a pancit canton that mom used to cooked for us. They are all good but could say that the pork bun is the best. It's like a fried siopao asado but the bun has this sweetness on top which compliments the bbq filling.
We received a free steamed egg cake maybe because of the Chinese New Year.

I wasn't able to explore much of the chinese cuisine when i was in hongkong and macau. Glad there's Tim Ho Wan-Hong Kong's most famous michelin star dim sum restaurant, is now in the Philippines. The pork buns was heaven. I also tried the vermicelli rolls and rice meals but if there is something that will make me go back it'll definitely be the pork buns. Yum!
