About Tea Room at Bun House
We speak Chinese. We serve Chinese. Drink fast or eat slow. Hong Kong Beer, China-only cocktails, Salted Lime Soda! Imported drinks, imported music, Westerners welcome!
A throwback to 1960's Hong Kong tea rooms serving up gourmet Cantonese forgotten favourites, no steamed food! Famous clay pot rice with fat pork, velvet, underground, coal grill barbecue, original jukebox with original hits, new spirits and old liquor, rattan and leather, house brewed rice wine! All day every day, come soon!
our dinner was a disaster. The waitress forgot to post it in the system our main courses.... so we ate some starters with white rice and one dessert. After insisted our waitress than food was missing. 45 minutes later our 2 main courses. First ant last time. Good luck¡¡
lovely place with authentic HK style food
Great ambiance and food. Could use more serving staff
Amazing place and fabulous food, go if you can!
Although we made a reservation and the restaurant was half empty, we were given a terrible table under the aircon at the back side of the restaurant. When we asked to move the waiter said that the larger tables were reserved for groups of 8. (No way that tables could fit 8 people). Throughout our dinner the tables remained empty. Out of five, two of us ended up with a cold. The waiter (a tall guy) was rude and unresponsive throughout. This place started quite well but it is the second time I have a bad experience so I am not going to recommend it any more.
enjoyed our meal
great atomosphere, the music wasnt too old fashioned but old enough to tell it totally felt like the 60s and the furniture was just so equisite. The food was great
Great atmosphere, tasty and interesting drinks
We all had a fantastic time, the food and drinks were amazing and the atmosphere was brilliant. The staff were super helpful and very good. We will certainly be coming back!
The spicy rice cake is too spicy, perhaps it will be better to transform the dish to sweet-sour flavour.
Staff were fantastic - highly recommend the chicken wings, delicious!
Everything was great but the HK French toast would have been better without cheese.
Great bar to go for a drink and some authentic Hong Kong style food. Service was great
The customer services was really bad, the guys with a ponytail take our plate when we not finished our food, we ask three different staffs to bring us water for five time but it never gets to us. We waited 20 minutes to pay after we asked for a card machine. The service was totally rubbish!
Amazing food and excellent service!
New favourite bar - fantastic place
We chose this place specifically because there was no set menu for Chinese new year. Unluckily they decided to only offer a set menu without notifying guests who has booked in advanced either via email or even just FYI people on their website. The waiter muttered something about it being a "speakeasy" doing Chinese new year as an excuse for this lack of communication. Yes, we chose a speakeasy to have a few drinks and bites and not be burdened with a £40 head meal! Waiter looked blankly at us when we asked to fix a super wobbly table and eventually moved and sat under the heater which they refused to turn off, so it was like eating in a sauna. We were 5 and managed to finish within 1h15- not impressed with the pace of the meal. Then waited for an age to pay! The savoury food itself was OK but having had the delicious buns upstairs, it was disappointing. The desserts were both terrible. The rice balls were fried in advance/ terrible coating if not, and tasted of old reused, slightly rancid oil and the ginger milk pudding was by far the worst iteration I've ever tasted in my life. Overly firey with a hint of chemical taste (did you use fake ginger instead of real ginger juice? Shocking) and no taste of milk. Drinks were expensive but expected. Décor of the place was nice and the only thing I could compliment about the night. I'm sure in the "normal" service where you had cocktails and nibbles the venue would have worked marginally better. I would have never chosen a bar to eat a set menu and based on this experience would never recommend anyone this place or return.
Booked for Chinese New Year however there was no indication on their website at the time of booking that it would have been a CNY menu only which was quite limiting unfortunately

Great place, will be back for sure.
Unbeatable atmosphere, intriguing jrinks, friendly service, tip-top jukebox soundtrack. I’d live there if I could.
The tea room is very cool, great atmosphere, food was delicious as were the cocktails. However the service was chaotic - menus were not given till we asked, food took a long time and came in random order (even for Chinese standard). The place seems under staffed, yet lots of waiters or mangers looking people walking around doing nothing. Kitchen staff brings out food and they were left on a very small ledge at the end of the bar for longer than 10min before a waiter came to pick them up to put them on people’s table. It seems like the establishment hasn’t worked out how to communicate between the kitchen and in the restaurant. It would also be nice to be able to order buns as well, since it’s a bun house. In the end we skipped dessert and went upstairs.
There’s some kinks to be worked out after their first day but the food was great and the staff was friendly and accommodating.
We visited for the brunch soft launch. We were told our table was double booked althoigh there were some empty tables. We were ushered upstairs for some free buns while we waited. After about 25 mins I received a call asking if I was coming which was confusing since we had already 'checked in'. When we came back downstairs, some of the tables which were empty originally still were which was annoying. We ordered a few dishes. The congee was very tasty but tepid and the doughnut pieces not crunchy. Cheung fun was good but the char siu bacon was very expensive for one small mostly fatty piece. If they can get over some of these hurdles I'd probably go again.
