Dim Sum Library, is a refreshing evolution of the time-honoured Cantonese tradition - offering a selection of delicious dim sum prepared with new ingredients, textures, flavours and presentation, served all day in an elegant Hong Kong tea room.

These tasty new creations include "Black Truffle Har Gau", "Dan Dan Xiaolong Bao", "Black Pepper Wagyu Beef in Millefeuille pastry", "Cheung Fan with Squid Mousse and Crispy Tofu"and" Hokkaido King Crab and Sea Urchin Spring Roll" are among the delectable dim sum dishes on offer.

Unlike traditional dim sum restaurant, Dim Sum Library is fronted by a stunning Chinoiserie cocktail bar, guests can enjoy a full selection of classic cocktails, wines and spirits as well as bespoke Chinese tea cocktails. For those who enjoy a game of Mahjong in the afternoon, the tables at Dim Sum Library’s Mahjong Parlour, discretely concealed at the rear of the restaurant, are a perfect place to play.

Great food, but much of the wine on the menu was sold out. Also quite noisy, but the quality of the food is outstanding and makes up for the shortcomings. Highly recommend.

Superb food, great ambiance. We are a family of four, each made their own choices then we shared. Some we ordered more of. The dessert was also delicious - I thought I might not like them but the mango and the chocolate was delicious.

I wanted to change my order after I ordered in 3mins. They said i cannot change. Just adding is ok.
And I dropped off one of the dimsum on the floor. They didnt care it at all. It was only 2pics dimsum menu. No asking to order it again.

I’ve been coming to Dim Sum Library for a few years now and when it first opened it was spectacular - absolutely delicious twists on classics. However as the years have passed the quality of the food seems to have gone down. It’s still very good but the attention to detail is gone. Will definitely come back but not if it continues to trend toward mediocrity (it’s too pricey for that!)

Food tastes good. Creative. Priced high for what it is but it is in Pacific Place Mall, hence it puts it’s price points based on the high rents!

Overpriced, mediocre food. With the exception of the pork bun dim sum, which was OK, the others we had were bad to tasteless. To add insult to injury, the food was incredibly overpriced given the quality.

Service was pleasant but prefunctory. I see no reason to ever return

First time to try Dim Sum Library and it was a very pleasant surprise. Loved everything we got! It is a bit on the pricey side compared to other lunch Dim Sum but their offerings are on a whole new level. Will definitely go back!

Dim sum Library has become our favorite weekend brunch place ever since I discovered it purely be accident while walking through PP. Last saturday was quite good, I only gave 4 stars because some of the dishes were a bit salty to my taste. I'd like to think it's just a one off incident. Love their truffle crispy chicken.

This place is incredible. We almost canceled the reservation because we wanted traditional dim sum, but so glad we didn’t. Not only was the food unique, creative and adventurous while maintaining a connection to traditional Chinese dim sum, but the service was impeccable. When we informed the waitress that we had someone in our group with food allergies, he came over and said that he would personally inform us which dish had shellfish as they came out. The service was prompt without being overbearing. This is truly one of my favorite places of all time!!
