My family was visiting from out of town and they'd never had dim sum before, so I took them to House of Hong. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it! Picking out your food from the passing carts is fun, although it can get a little chaotic, especially if you're not very familiar with the different varieties of dim sum and can't immediately tell if the stuff on the cart that's passing by your table is something you've just had, or something different. All the food was good, and my parents, who haven't had pork in years for health reasons, happily made an exception for the pork dumplings - and then got seconds. Communicating with the servers was sometimes difficult because of their accents and our accents, but in a way, this only contributed to the multi-cultural experience. The selection of vegetarian items is not very extensive and they are rarely placed on carts, so I had to special-order them from the server, but the stir-fried noodles and the vegetable-mushroom pancakes I opted for were great. For meat and seafood lovers, though, this is dim sum paradise!
Pros: delicious dim sum, fun atmosphere, good value
Cons: communication with servers somewhat hindered by language barrier; would have liked a couple more vegetarian dim sum options
