Even the harshest of food critics are impressed by Man Mo's fusion attempts at dim sum, and while it can be expensive and not every dish is a winner, there are enough hits to make this a spot worth visiting.

CONS: reportedly, the chefs come from Robuchon and Din Tai Fung, so we expected more from the food.

 But if you’re out to impress a dim sum connoisseur – or, in fact, anyone who loves truly innovative fusion experiences – this should definitely be on your hit list

A meal for two including cocktails and wine comes to around HK$800. If you’re looking for something a little more unusual and off the beaten path, then Man Mo Café proves to be an excellent choice.

The desserts saved the day: the HK egg lemon tart had a frothy meringue top and was the perfect bite-sized portion, while the Nutella Ball had us drooling for more. We left satisfied but not totally sold on this contemporary take on dim sum.

The verdict: It’s fair to say we loved the cuisine, the place and the ethos. Man Mo Café is a very cool new eatery to add to Sheung Wan’s modish dining scene.

Once you’ve tried a fair selection of dishes, your meal at Man Mo Café is likely to cost a tad more than the average dim sum joint – but come on, does this seem like an average dim sum joint to you?!

We defy anyone from a dim sum connoisseur to a dim sum newbie not to love Man Mo Café but in sad news, not a chicken’s foot in sight… (phew!)

We recommend the tomato & mozzarella, the burgerbuns as well as the foie gras. For dessert, don't miss the Nutella Balls - they're terribly good for you!

As a result the presentation of the dumplings here are beautiful, though some of the flavours of the dishes need a bit more tweaking, but overall interesting.

The pastry on the HK egg lemon tart was less flaky and oily than a traditional dan tat, giving way to a thin but delicious layer of lemon curd and a thick, gooey layer of soft meringue.

 It is a very cute spot, and I am pleasantly surprised by how competently Man Mo Cafe has managed to resurrect fusion cuisine from culinary no-man’s-land.

I enjoyed the imaginative menu, and the relaxed yet hipster-fied atmosphere.  However, I would only ever venture here with parties of 2 or 3, as the portions are only designed for small groups.

The food is quite pricey….there were some hit and misses. But overall it was un-bearingly fun with these two girlies! :D

I actually like the dim sum Man Mo Cafe offers, but unlike the traditional Chinese dim sum, I am not sure if I would want this every weekend, The dim sum at Man Mo cafe is rather pricey, so we were a bit shocked when the bill came.

Man Mo Cafe is a perfect example of the amazing results that can come from fusing eastern and western cuisines. We love their take on dim sum, adding French cooking elements to the traditional HK dishes.

Over all, a good experience, something very different and they deliver when it comes to quality and taste. Nice big check mark on the service too, the waiters know what is on the menu and what to recommend, depending on your preference.

Having spent $250 per person on tiny portions of food, I'd have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the food at MAN MO Cafe overall. Initially I was very excited to try the fusion dim sum here as some of the creations sounded rather bold like pairing Nutella with fried sesame ball and tomato Mozzarella with dumplings

In a tucked away alley one street below well-known Man Mo temple, lies this gem of a cafe with fusion dim sum and select dishes.
