5 Star HK Dim Sum has opened its second outlet, at Food Junction in Rivervale Mall.

The sell here? "Hotel-grade dim sum at wallet-friendly prices," according to Food Junction, which has recently revamped its Rivervale Mall and Century Square branches.

The new space is modelled after HDB void decks, incorporating iconic elements such as a lift lobby landing, tiled dining tables and stools and even a dragon-head playground, into its design.
