This restaurant use to be a little pricey, now they have lower their prices, and amazing the food is still pretty good. They have lowered some of their Dim Sum dishes to 99 cents....


I cannot stand the waiters at this place! We waited 45 minutes for our Peking Duck, and go so annoyed w/ the indifferent and incompetent servers that we just canceled it and left....

I love this restaurant and have been eating here since I was a kid, but lately I have had one or two really dreadful experiences that have made me start looking for a new dim sum staple. For the price, the food can be excellent. However, some days the food is mediocre to inedible, while the service... well the second to last time I want there with three friends (none of us Chinese), we got seated on their dingey back-alley patio, and while what I assume was the manager was seating us, he grumbled something about "gwai loh" to one of the waiters, gwai loh of course being a, if not perjorative, impolite term for white folk. That was followed by nonexistant service, still bleeding beef, cold, clammy fried things that had obviously been left sitting for quite some time, and all that topped off by being overcharged. It took me a good while to be able to go back to Parc Hong Kong, but I'm still trying to find a new favorite. Pros: Cheap for big groups, food CAN be excellent Cons: Inconsistency in quality, sometimes rude or indifferent waitstaff. more

Best Dim Sum and the best valve, starting at 99 cents only 4/9/2007

This restaurant use to be a little pricey, now they have lower their prices, and amazing the food is still pretty good. They have lowered some of their Dim Sum dishes to 99 cents. Even there at dinner, they have now, a great valve set dinner menu. Starting for four at $48.00 with 8 different dishes. This is truly a real bargain. Now days with the tight economy, all of us are looking to keep budget low. I am glad that when everything is going higher, this restaurant?s price is going lower, without scarifying the food standard.. Great Job. Pros: Value, free parking, Good food Cons: Noicy, OK service more

Look for a Liar, an Unreliable service, this is the place! Risk your luck 12/22/2006

Yes, I agree what others said how terrible it is in this restaurant. I don't comment the service, but their integrity. The Manager, Alan Wong, is such a Liar. He is not reliable, reckless, immature. He found excuse to blame you back when you talked to him. He even played the Bad words back to insult you, and the Boss was not going to do anything even. I knew some of you don't like to stay a line for a Chinese resturant, but next time, I would not even think of this restaurant, or just pick something else instead. Don't even try this. If you Do want to get INSULTED, this is a place you go. Pros: Free parking, but you can easily fnd parking before 6:00pm Cons: Liar, Unreliable more

HOrrible Service! average food 10/22/2006

I went there last Saturday for dinner with a group of friends; The waitstaff is terrible with service...Here's what happened: While the waitor was taking orders, one girl asked him if there is any dish he would recommend; He then say in Chinese "hey 'folk', there are 2 pages of full of dishes at the special menu, why don't you just read it yourself? How am I expected to remember all of them?" What the? We're just trying to ask for some casual suggestions!? Moreover, the word 'folk' is not quite the right word, as he was using a Chinese term that is rude/slang in describing females. Then one of our order is Peking Duck. Usually this dish can be ordered as "1-eat" or "2-eat". So I asked if the Peking duck dish we ordered is "1-eat" or "2-eat", and what are the options for "2-eat". Well, he replied very rudely that our order is "1-eat" with the implication that we are too stingy to pay more money for the "2-eat" option...while I continued to ask what are the "2-eat" options, he said that anything could be made, but failed to tell us exactly what is available. At some point he suddenly said, in a derogatory way, "oh, we never have half orders for Peking Duck" as if he thinks we are too poor to order one Peking Duck to share for a table of 9. While my friend and I was looking at the bill trying to figure out how to split the cost, the waiter walked by and threw in a rude comment saying "Do you guys need a calculator?", not in a helpful sense of course, but as if we can't figure out how much to give for tips. It's definitely not language barrier or miscommunications as we are a group of local Cantonese ppl; I think it's just inherent in the waitstaff mindset to be arrogant since this restaurant tries to be upscale (well its name a famous restaurant in Hong Kong), but without quality food but despicable service, the name just won't last. more

Bad food, okay service 10/19/2006

Went there with my bf for dim sum on a Sunday afternoon. If it matters, we are Chinese and we love dim sum. But the food here was so bad, I sat there making a list of what we ate and what was wrong with it. We had leftovers of everything and we didn't even consider bringing anything home for later consumption. So let's see. We ordered a Soy Sauce Tofu, it was cold and soggy. This tofu is supposed to be steaming hot with a crisp skin. The (supposedly) steamed turnip cake was cold; my bf ate one bite and left the rest of it on the plate, uneaten. The pork ribs, normally my favorite dish at most restaurants, had NO flavor, unless you count oil as a flavor. The pan fried rice rolls? What a joke, they were not pan fried, they tasted like they were microwaved:soggy, with some hot areas and some cold areas. The Shanghai dumplings were not up to par either. We had to ask for the accompanying sauce, which was not well balanced at all. It was too vinegary and salty at the same time. I would advise anyone to stay away from this dim sum restaurant. It was bad. It was the worst dim sum I've ever had in my life. Okay, second worst. Pros: Convenient location. Cons: BAD FOOD!!!! more

Amazing Experience 4/24/2006

asianfoodluver Provided by Partner
A group of 4 friends and I had an amazing experience. The food was great. Service was wonderful. This place is authentic chinese so if someone is looking for $5 orange chicken..wrong place. Service was also amazing. I read the other reviews and I must say I was shocked. Our table had amazing service. Everything came really fast and prompt. We had the store's special Peking Duck and it was delicous. This place is also known for its seafood. Theres a huge seafood tank in the store. We had the crab..yummy! We ordered a fish and as usual, fish is expensive in chinese places. It is not unusual to pay 20-28 per lb for a fish so we got what we expected. Our fish was amazing though, definitely worth it. Parking=hard in SF, so it was really great of the restaurant to provide us with 2 hrs of free parking. Pros: free parking, great food, lots of seafood Cons: can be busy , recommend reservation more

Good food but crowded and run-down restaurant 12/22/2005

eyhung47 Provided by Partner
My family is Chinese person and we've eaten here for many years, both for dim sum and dinner. The special discounted dim sum items are great deals and the food quality/variety is good. For dinner, I like the smoked honey bass and there are often posted specials not written in English, so ask the server for recommendations. On the downside, the tables are close together and the restaurant is not as clean as some of the other Chinese restaurants (such as Koi Palace). Especially the bathroom! Pros: Reasonable price, Variety of dishes, Authentic food Cons: Noisy/Crowded, Hard to find parking, Messy bathroom more

What were they thinking 10/31/2005

2good4food Provided by Partner
We had dinner for 3 adults and 3 kids. We were seated quickly but they took forever to give us tea and take our order. We had dim sum there before and it was good but the dinner was over priced and the quality of the food was not that great. We order Walnut prawns which looks like it's been sitting in the kitchen all day. did not look or taste fresh. The seafood claypot we order did not look fresh either. We did on the other hand get a Rock Cod fresh which was ridiculesly expensive $25 a lb. What a rip off... it was for a fish... I could have had two lobsters or even more for $63.00 I would not eat there again. The food was terrible. My mother still makes the best Steam Rock Cod. more

Food was of bad quality 9/27/2005

First off, you go to a restaurant for food, and then astmosphere. It was at lunch time, they had dim sum. The ingredients were just of bad quality. We had shrimp/snowpea, shrimp nooddles, shrimp on its own (dim sum style for all that...) and some mushroom/eggplant/tofu thing. The sauce tasted bad, very blend. Sort of the sauces that you get out of the can. The dim sum skin (flour...) was very thick and oily... And the service is there, meaning they serve right away, but quite rude, one woman almost ran into me with her tray... Bad service and usually i am not difficult to please. Quite expensive for the bad quality of food and service. Pros: none Cons: cheap ingredients, rude service more

Great Service, Good Food 8/2/2005

boltnut55 Provided by Partner
We arrived at 5:30 Saturday; there were only three tables filled, although the place was packed by the time we left. Our hostess greeted us warmly and showed us to our table. We ordered Peking Duck, served in two separated dishes, one w/just skin on top of shrimp chips, and the other with just the meat. The duck was a little overcooked (dry). The steamed black bass ($18/lb.) came also slightly overcooked but still very good. They voluntarily put the soy sauce on the side, extremely accommodating to my requests for no salt/MSG. The bass was deboned for us. The Buddha's delight had many assorted veggies; the colorful platter was plentiful. Our last dish was with large sized shrimp and scallops and unsalted cashews. Although two dishes were slightly overcooked, I would still return because the food is fresh, the service was very accommodating, and the kitchen followed our requests. more

If you know how to order 7/20/2004

This is an excellent restaurant, much better than Koi Palace in terms of Dim Sum values and variety, not to mention those Chinese fast food take outs. Because this is a Hong Kong style restaurant, not a Chinese American style restaurant, you really have to know how to order before you can enjoy the most authentic Cantonese cuisine. For example, if you order Peking Duck in this restaurant, it is like ordering Hot Dog in a famous French restaurant. No wonder you don't get good service! Their dim sum is one of the best in town, especially those $1.8 per plate goodies. Pros: Dim Sum variety, Authentic cuisine, Food value Cons: , Service, Seating more

Horrible Horrible Service 11/9/2003

I cannot stand the waiters at this place! We waited 45 minutes for our Peking Duck, and go so annoyed w/ the indifferent and incompetent servers that we just canceled it and left. The stupid waiter was extremely rude. Each time we tried to flag him down, he would just walk right by and say "duck is coming." I would suggest going to Koi Palace or any other chinese restaurant listed on CitySearch Cons: Service, Ambience, Service more

Huge Disappointment 10/28/2003

We had the worst service ever for a dinner for 4. The service was slow while the waiters helped the so-called "larger groups." And, to top it off, it took a very long time to get our food. more

Best Chinese Food in Town 5/3/2003

honey_bunny Provided by Partner
If you are looking for a quality high-end Chinese food (i.e. the real stuff), this is the place. The Peking duck is great; lobster in garlic sauce is great, the spring rolls are great, the steamed fish is great... better yet, compared to other "high quality" Chinese restaurants like Harbor Village, the prices are quite low (but the restaurant is not as attractive or clean). If you like Orange Chicken, and used to paying $5 per dish, this is NOT your place. more
