Hong Kong Lounge II Ratings and Reviews
This was special occasion getting family together for New Year. The staff were courteous and friendly. We ordered the prix fixe for four. Each dish was tasty: Shanghai dumplings, Peking duck, wagyu beef with bok choi, crab claws, steamed fish, and noodles with shiitake mushroom.
We felt that the dishes were not served as hot as they could have been. And they were being served so quickly that the dishes were getting cold before we could enjoy them.
Also we had to ask for the tea to be refreshed with hot water. We wish they checked rather than us having to ask.
Food was pretty bad-the lemon chicken was so sweet it could have been dessert chicken. Felt sick after eating the “house noodles” that were drenched in some brown sludge sauce. The menu has NO DESCRIPTIONS. Little did we know the “house noodles” had every type of protein included and the noodles were crispy with the consistency of uncooked pasta. However, the dumplings were good, but nothing spectacular for what you are paying. Service was pretty bad, no one comes to check on you basically they bring you your food and leave you. After leaving a tip on the lower side since the service and food were so bad, a waiter chased us out of the restaurant and made us so uncomfortable we had to add more on top of what we left. Do not come here, it’s not worth it. Paid $100 to feel sick and awkward. After scouring yelp, all bad reviews are hidden. Same on Opentable. Really misleading.
Service was excellent - prompt, attentive, and kind. Food was delicious and came out of the kitchen at lightning speed, despite the restaurant being full. The vibe inside is similar in many ways to dim sum restaurants I've frequented in Hong Kong - large round tables with tablecloths, everyone talking and the kind of louder atmosphere, tea ever-present at all the tables. I was really looking forward to trying HK Lounge II because of all the hype, and it exceeded my expectations. Meanwhile, 3 friends from out of town (who had no idea about this restaurant always being on the Eater SF list) divulged after our meal that they were secretly a little intimidated by the thought of going to an authentic dim sum place, but that they were so thrilled we did and thanked me for taking them there many times. I know I'll be back.
Never fails to astound for ultra-fresh ingredients, prompt and friendly service, and creative Chinese cuisine. Easy parking on Parker Street on the south side of Geary makes this place an easy winner especially at affordable prices. 2018 Michelin Bib Gourmand.
The experience was simple and easy for reservations. Confirmation phone call is a plus. Great food with unique dishes and the services was excellent. Friendly wait person and willing to make suggestions on the unique dishes. Food is great. Will definitely return for future events.
Go to favorite that is popular with the locals and the out oft owners in the know. Authentic Dim Sum and some dishes, I would say rate amongst the best I've tasted in the US and Asia. Family favorite is the Baked Char Siu Pau. Service is fast, friendly and competent. Usually a wait at popular times but bookings available on Open table which is a help for larger parties
The food and service was excellent. We chose HK Lounge II for a family dinner celebrating a birthday. Ordered the prix fixe waygu beef special for 4 and added selections from the menu for the 8 of us. They have a Lambrusco on the wine list was was a nice complement for the food.
What Hong Kong Lounge lacks in updated decor it makes up for in authentic flavors, preparation, service and taste. This was our first visit and our server was most helpful in pointing our dishes based on our questions. He suggested the perfect amount to order as well. The dumplings were light, piping hot and each bite offered a delicious combination of meat, fish or vegetable. The pork buns were packed with well seasoned pork which remained moist and in tact. The sea bass was extremely fresh and flaky. Go for any dish served in a pineapple; first it’s so pretty. And the flavor just makes you want more. We had several servers who were gracious and stayed nearby to offer assistance and explanations. Don’t miss the Sake list. But if winebis your preference they offer a lovely selection.
I chose this restaurant as it was heralded as the "best Chinese food in San Francisco". I made reservations for 7:15 pm, arrived at 7:10, and wasn't seated until 7:25. Then, I was seated immediately next to the door. Yes, literally, I could open the door for guests.
The waiter didn't understand basic English. The order took 50 mins, yes, almost an hour. Then the server forgot to put in the order for rice. This is a Chinese restaurant, who forgets the rice? He also forgot the order for the drinks. He brought the rice 8 mins (I timed it) after the entrees were on the table and the sodas after that.
Now, dear reader, if you remember back when Pres Bush sent a Secret Service agent for Chinese food in Denver during a stop? That's where I normally eat. I'm used to good Chinese. Hong Kong Lounge II is no where near as good as what I get two blocks from my house.
The food is exceptionally overpriced for what it is. The service was poor. The seating is very limited and bad. Overall rating? "Skip it".
Food was very well prepared and tasty - several unique dishes not found in other restaurants, e.g. reasonably priced abalone and mushroom melange, macadamia vegetable dish. Only disappointing dish was the crab and noodle (where was the crab?) All in all, with careful study of the menu, one can come away feeling well taken care of. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I would suggest that the restaurant update its web site as we found out it was a "lotta" years old and didn't reflect the current menu.
