With several decades of experience in making dim sum, both Chef Mak and Chef Leung joined efforts in building the Michelin-starred brand – Tim Ho Wan. The name is translated from ‘add good luck’ and the single consistent message across the expansion of this brand is to focus on producing affordable, high-quality dim sum. Within a year of opening in 2009, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star. Utilizing quality ingredients, our dim sum is freshly made-to-order.
Why did we choose to first launch in Australia before Europe of the U.S.A.? “Australians understand good food. Their tastebuds are attuned to Asian food and the ritual of enjoying dim sum is part of the culture here. The first foreign review of Tim Ho Wan even came from Australia!” – Director of Australian Operations, Vince Howe.
To date, the global expansion has amounted more than 20 outlets in 9 countries including Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
