Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was great....but they left the bones in the peking duck which was just weird."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The food was well done and service was great, but at 7:30pm on a Friday it was packed. One mid-sized room with high ceilings, no dividers, 3 or 4 round tables with 8-12 people at each one. So it was a night of shouting. We 4 got seated at a very small table that didn't quite hold all of our plates and dishes. Also, we made reservations for 7:15 and didn't get seated until 7:45. Also a $15 corkage fee, which I guess is standard. Partner said it's incredible for dim sum. Also cheap. Go for lunch."

  • "Great food. Room is to noisy!!!!!! They don't allow you to split checks and don't take American Express"

  • "Our dining group loved everything hear except Lemon Chicken which we found too sweet. Peking duck was fabulous and no need to order ahead. Pumpkin soup was special. All Dim Sum items great. Wok lamb was fabulous. Almond balls, Durian pastries, sesame balls, and the very large water chestnut pastries were all very good. Our fussiest diner found nothing to complain about, a unique event"

  • "Some good dishes, such as Mongolian beef and Vietnamese prawns. But a few were uninspired like salt and pepper sole. Little fresh chili and light on flavor, no five spice in the breading and the sole looked like fish sticks, though portion was generous and fresh. The pea shoots with abalone and mushrooms were the leafy type, not my favorites, because they don't have as much flavor as the stringy variety that has a very clean, fresh taste. Dishes are modestly sized and a bit pricy. Also a big miss-- they have a policy where they refuse to split a check on credit cards. So, we had to scramble for cash to reimburse the couple we were dining with who put the bill on their Visa. VERY customer unfriendly. Otherwise, service was excellent."

  • "Great authentic place. We had 40 people in the private room for my granddaughter's birthday party and it was fabulous. Ken is wonderful."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Very good Chinese food in a mix of unfamiliar and familiar choices. Great vegetarian dumplings, bacon with fish cakes, pea sprouts, fish maw soup. Friendly effective staff. Two areas for improvement; dishes arrived in random order (entree before soup?) and early kitchen closing (8:30 on a Sunday) meant no dessert. Good price."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food is excellent in this neighborhood gem. Wide selection of Chinese dishes, some not all that often seen on menus. Service was prompt and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Reservations are a must. They honored our open table reservation exactly on time. We will go back often."

  • "Unfortunately Hong Kong Lounge II appears to be having some growing pains adapting to its newfound popularity, after being named the best Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. Despite making a reservation this evening for 7 p.m., our party of three was not seated until after 7:30. When checking in, the host assured us that our table was "almost ready", and he repeated that same phrase at least three times in the intervening 30 minutes. However, it was only when we inquired a third time about the status of our table that he admitted our table was not only ready, but that it had been sitting empty for some time. He apologized for not alerting us sooner, as we had spent the majority of time waiting in a cramped and crowded vestibule."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The only problem we had was our table was not ready for at least 20 minutes, maybe a bit longer...there is no waiting area..just standing in a drafty entry way. However, the meal was worth waiting for. My husband' s mother was an exceptional Chinese chef and she would have enjoyed this meal. we look forward to returning and trying their steamed fish."

  • "Never having used Open Table before, I decided to give it a try per my daughter's input. I scheduled a reservation for a specific time and we were seated a little before the scheduled time. The place is always packed. So it was great being seated right away. Having worked in the food business before, I can appreciate HK Lounge having our table ready to go. The food is always consistently delicious. Though the place is always busy, wait staff is consistently patient, accommodating and attentive. Believe me. No small feat. No hesitation here in recommending HKL to anyone looking for a great place to eat with friendly service."

  • "Should I say more? The SF Chronicle review raved about the place and finally we took friends there promising them an authentic meal. Very disappointed. The dishes are "dumbed" down and sweetened for that local ( ?) taste and it was quite pricey. There are hundreds of Southern Chinese restaurantes in SF to choose from, I do not think we we give them another try. The other restaurant of same name is by far more authentic and better. Don't understand the food critique's review."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The ingredients of the dishes were of good quality but the flavors were flat and bland. I'm not sure how this restaurant got high marks by the local critic. Pricing did not match the results. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Absolutely amazing food -- great Dim Sum selections, beautifully served. Menu items outstanding. Beautiful preparation and presentation. Decor charming, and wait service wonderful. Also very obliging, I called to change time of reservation and was quickly accommocated. We sat in the back room and loved the intimacy there. Can't wait to return and sample more menu items. I can hear the Peking Duck calling me."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The food was not good at all -- everything was very oversalted, and one of our items never even arrived at the table. All I could taste was salt when I left. I'll never go back."

  • "Hong Kong Lounge II offers great quality Chinese food at a slightly above average price (compare to other Chinese restaurant). The place was packed when we (8 people) dined, but the wait staff tried their best to serve us in a timely manner. Food was up to par in authenticity of taste, in good quality, and generally a place worth going back again, just to try out a vast variety of dishes. Soft shell crab, walnut honey glazed prawns, Chilean Sea Bass, Coffee ribs were among the 8 dishes we enjoyed tremendously. We requested no MSG yet everything tasted just as good. portion size was smaller than other restaurants, but good taste and quality really made up for it. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We went because of the recent glowing review in the SF Chronicle. Some dishes were good to very good, but by the end of the meal things started to taste somewhat similar. Service was very attentive, and table setting was nice. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "A wonderful restaurant! We had Peking Duck, Pan-fried Chilean Sea Bass, Macadamia Nuts/Snow Peas/Mushrooms. Freshest ingredients, marvelous flavorings. Prompt attentive service. Even with a full restaurant, one can have a quiet conversation."

  • "The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Reasonable prices!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We enjoyed the dinner and the food was great. Improvements would be to bring the appetizers before the main dishes and gradually bring main dishes since it's hard to eat everything while it's warm when it comes at once (or fit if on the table. I'd also increase the spiciness and lower the sugar on the eggplant -- far too sweet. But generally very good."

  • "Will only take one credit card per table. Will not return."

  • "Excellent everything. Wonderful dim sum. Best in SF"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We love Chinese food and heard good things about this place. The service was very good and the pricing very reasonable (wine list was surprising in variety!). The Shanghai dumplings (soup dumplings) were a little doughy although the insides were tasty. We have never found a Peking duck to match what you get in China but this one was better than most in SF as it didn't have too much fat and the skin was fairly crispy. It was served with plenty of hoisin sauce, onions and cucumber. We also had surf clams in a black bean sauce with peppers and onions, which gave the clams a pleasant taste. The only annoying thing was the restaurant's phone rang loudly and was continually ringing interrupting the otherwise pleasant atmosphere"

  • "Was looking for a classic dim sum restaurant, spotted Hong Kong Lounge on UrbanSpoon, but could not make a reservation, so decided on "II" which was closer anyway and had same dim sum menu, just not served from rolling carts in a large, bustling restaurant, like the original. Best Chinese meal of the three notable restaurants we visited for dinner in SF."

  • "Exceptional quality. Great service and it's clean! "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Whoa!! Hold onto your horseys! This is the real deal! Really great, delicious, carefully prepared Chinese food. Everything was intensely flavored with really fresh ingredients. We absolutely loved everything we had: Delicious crab and corn soup, out-of this-world garlic soy sauce sauteed whole crab (mmmmmm), the best creamy tofu puffs with bok choy and black mushrooms (dreamy), divine salt and pepper pork ribs. We can't wait to return to try other dishes! Yum yum!"

  • "Too crowded on weekend. I'd never go again then. Noisy, very business-ish. But the food is great. Go not on weekends. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I've been here for dinner, which appears to be a totally different experience from afternoon dim sum, where people complain about lines and service. Just make a reservation and lines are not a problem in my experience. Service is welcoming and usually efficient. I've enjoyed the soup dumplings, surf clams, baby bok choi with stewed pork, roasted quail, and many other dishes. The one full on miss I've experienced was crispy salt and pepper pork ribs...heavy, greasy, yucky coating and bland rubbery meat."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Excellent service and very fresh and delicious food. The owner and her staff are wonderfully attentive, and make great recommendations. We're lucky to have them in our neighborhood"

  • "Try the dumplings they were all delicious and perfect! As was the crispy chicken! Wait staff friendly and helpful. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "We ate there the 1st or 2nd day they opened and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. Today was a totally different story. The food was excellent!! Honey walnut shrimp and Bird's nest: The best food we have had at a restaurant in years. We got there at 5:30pm and there were about 12 people in line. Ten minutes later, the place was full. Seemed like everyone there enjoyed it as much as we did."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Some items we had were very good and others were only okay. If you haven't had good dim sum before, then you'll think this is very good. We went in the evening, and perhaps it's because there are few dim sum places open at night, but the place was packed, people waiting to be seated and the dinner service was awful. We are just accustomed to a faster more efficient pace at Asian restaurants."

  • "Went there after the Bauer review. Not a good move. I had to make a 5:30 reservation and was second in line to get in that evening. We were seated across from the door, under 2 vents. Asked to be moved and were told we couldn't, though the table I was eying was empty the whole time we were there - not good. $15 corkage-not bad. Their ONE credit card policy not good. Our bill came to $109 before tip. We were 4 and our guests did not have the cash. Make it a 2 card policy. Yes, you'd pay an additional bank charge, but your high prices can absorb it. The food was upscale Hong Kong- good quality,clean tasting. Get the sweet rice, you can't go wrong. Good amount of dried scallops, shrimp and sausage. Smooth sweet smokey flavor."

  • "The waiters rushed us out because another party was waiting, small portions and pricy. Hk lounge on 16/ Geary was much better. Dim sum was tastier than the dinner menu"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Upon timely arrival for a reservation, there was no host to be found. After much time, a man said our table was almost ready and then forced my group & others outside of the inner door into a very crowded space , including my 92 year old grandma, tho there was space inside. Once seated, service was friendly & prompt. Many dishes arrived quickly & were delish (shanghai dumplings, salt & pepper calamari, braised squab, peking duck, crab & corn soup.) Then they started to clear and we asked about the other 3 dishes that we ordered. The waitress/hostess was flustered and said she could try to have the closing kitchen make them quickly, if we still want the dishes. Um, we did. The country fried rice and trio of vegetables were also delish."

  • "Open table reservations made at 4 p.m., and we were seated immediately at the last table available. Lots of surprises here. The "whole" abalone was a preparation never seen before, small, very tender medallions accompanied by spinach and mushrooms. Wonderful vegetable trio with eggplant, mushrooms and lightly deep-fried "tamago tofu". BBQ pork and shrimp won ton soup was +++; don't fail to order this as a starter. Perfect Peking duck -- a half order for three of us + they refilled the accompanying plum sauce/scallions. Very attentive service. We will return."

  • "My family and I had read about HK Lounge II in the SF Gate article. It held up to its hype. We had the dragon banquet which was delicious. The service was excellent and very prompt on bringing our food and drinks. We will be back again :)"

  • "It is always surprising to me how hard it is to find really standout Chinese food in the Bay Area. I had read a couple of reviews of HK Lounge 2 and took the risk of taking some friends and colleagues on Thursday night. Truly an great night. The service was excellent. We were late on our reservation. We called and the host held the table for us. Especially nice, since there were easily three or four parties waiting when we arrived. The menu has a few special items, but mostly familiar dishes. But the preparation was excellent. Chinese chefs are hard to keep in SF. I hope HKL2 can keep their current kitchen in tact. I am adding HKL2 to a very short list of great Chinese eateries in the Bay Area."
