Review on Glamorous Chinese Restaurant
Hong Kong meets Las Vegas in this vast 400-seater restaurant attached to the technicolour Wing Yip Centre on the Oldham Road. Inside it's almost surreal, with huge historical scenes covering the walls, OTT displays of plastic flowers and a constantly-changing neon light show flashing away in the cornicings.
For sheer atmosphere and authenticity, Glamorous has few rivals in the city - witness the fact that Chinese families descend on the place every Sunday for long sessions of dim sum. Trolley girls wheel around their little vehicles piled up with steaming baskets, and you need to keep your eyes peeled as they tour the tables: good bets are steamed scallop dumplings, salt-and-pepper spare ribs, beef and ginger dumplings, deep-fried minced prawns and turnip croquettes.
The full menu is a bewildering assortment of familiar sesame prawn toasts, aromatic crispy duck, kung po king prawns and the like, plus more esoteric specialities including soft-shell crabs with garlic and chilli, brisket and yam hotpot, roast suckling pig with jellyfish and much more besides.
