Tourists visiting the tea house said they appreciated the restaurant’s traditional approach — a rarity now in Hong Kong.

“We usually sit with family or friends in China. But here, we share tables with people we don’t know,” said 20-year-old Chinese visitor Wu Yutung.

Marcelo Garcia, 47, a Brazilian traveler who said he had never before eaten dim sum, said Lin Heung is “an environment with a huge amount of energy.”

“People probably come here again because they feel a sense of belonging,” he said.
