Founder Kam Shui Fai’s reputation for roasted goose began at his humble street-side food stall before the onset of World War II. From that beginning grew the business that would one day earn the chef a Michelin star three years in a row. Service is quick and may seem harsh to the diner not used to the place's streamlined, Cantonese mannerisms. Nevertheless, tourists and locals alike fill this Central neighborhood spot on a regular basis to sample the famous roasted goose in plum sauce and other traditional dishes, like char siew (barbequed pork), stir-fried pigeon, or sliced beef with oyster sauce. Four set menus are available, along with a la carte and take-out.

Insider Tip:

Long-time customers jokingly refer to Kam Shui Fai’s specialty as the "Flying Roast Goose" because, over the years, many patrons have been so smitten with the dish, they've actually tried take it on the plane ride home as a carry-on package.
