Lin Heung Lau is now making a triumphant return!

Having faced challenges in the past, including a brush with closure due to lease issues in early 2019 and changes during the pandemic in August 2022 the restaurant is set to continue its legacy of serving tea and dim sum in its iconic setting thanks to a joint venture by its employees.

Spanning two floors at the junction of Soho’s Wellington Street and the sloping Aberdeen Street, the restaurant has a history of over a century of operations, first opening in 1926 with a sister branch in Mong Kok. The iconic location has also been featured in international publications as well as playing the backdrop to iconic Hong Kong films like Wong Kar Wai’s “In the Mood for Love.”

In addition to its classic dim sum offerings, Lin Heung Lau is rumoured to be introducing a new selection of hand-shaken drinks available for takeaway from its ground floor space. While details on the menu served after it’s reopening remain to be revealed, patrons can anticipate a blend of tradition and innovation at this historic establishment's grand comeback.
