Food has been good and consistent, but especially terrific the last three times. And we go there three to four times a month since they opened! Wish they would bring back the butterfly dessert. Hint hint.
most disappointing dim sum we have ever experienced. The dim sum was huge and tastelessYou had to pick the bones out of the Peking Duck in order to eat the pancakes.
Wonderful food and excellent service. Dim sum dumplings were the best I've enjoyed in SF. Enjoyed both entrees, Salt & Pepper Prawns (normally in shell, they were great with taking them out of the shell) and Steamed Eggplant and Pork with Pickled Vegetables were divine. I live in Portland, OR and I wish there were Chinese restaurants of this caliber. Great meal!
This place is very accommodating, made a reservation for four and was able to add two more people without any problem. I like how they have a separate semi-private room for large parties, it’s quieter and service is much faster. The food was amazing, everything from soup dumplings to the duck, so fresh and so flavorful. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning for some more.
The Starter Honey Glazed BBQ Pork Belly with bao, ( $15 ) was terrible. It consisted of fat only. We had it before and was not like that!
Food was delicious, but rushed and service seemed chaotic and disorganized. Also one dish we ordered never arrived. When we asked to have it removed from the bill, since we didn’t get it, we were told by the owner that we ordered too much food, so it was never put on our bill. Lol. We will never go back.
Quality of food never disappoints. We ordered a set banquet menu this visit. The service was excellent with plenty of attention.
Food and service were excellent, as always. This is our favorite place to bring friends to for good Chinese good.
Great party of 8 enjoyed every bite! 😄👍
I can't wait to go back. The food was SO good! We ordered a variety of thongs for the 4 of us and we could think of not a single criticism of anything. Great food, great service!
A few highlights:
We had a delicious family dinner consisting of
Peking Duck that hardly had fat under the crispy skin! The crab was sautéed in ginger and was cooked to perfection, the salt and pepper jumbo prawns were sweet and crispy. The Coffee Spareribs were creative and tasty, although we did not use the whipped cream on the side. If you are a real Cantonese foodie, you will love the Country rice clay pot with taro and Chinese bacon ----a must have! Desserts were wonderfully executed... I'm not telling all the secrets!
Can't wait to go back!
Excellent all around!
Will CERTAINLY be back soon.
Best Chinese food for the Richmond District SF. Food is well prepared and delicious. Chinese New Year banquet menu was do it on and excellent service. We also love the dim sum much menu.
Great way to close the Chinese New Year. Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was also delicious and very fresh. Restaurant is small but nice and is Michelin Rated.
Probably the best Chinese (Cantonese) restaurant in San Francisco! Parking is easy in this neighborhood. This is my choice for Chinese food in a casual atmosphere.
Great Cantonese food with equally attentive service. Lighting could've been a little less dim for senior eyes. Wish we could've had our shot of whiskey for our occasion but we were politely informed it was not allowed. Appreciated the courtesy and apologies extended.
Great food and service!
Great way to celebrate a birthday.
All was terrific! I would suggest that they dim the lights a bit to enhance the ambiance.
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.
Best chinese Pekin Duck in San Francisco. The servers are are welcoming and helpful.
Thanks for a great dinnerxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The best Chinese food in the city besdes there other location. Great favors and freshness. A local gem on Geary in sf....
Excellent place for a family feast. Had the pleasure of taking my out-of-town relatives here for dinner on a Friday night. Did not disappoint.
So much tasty food!
Good dim sum with fresh ingredients and delicate flavors across the board. Tasty soup dumplings (really all dumplings), good pork belly, delicious beef and shrimp with soft noodles. Worth the trek from downtown and not touristy at all.
Service was excellent, our dishes came promptly and were delicious. This made our family Christmas feast a joy.
Mouth watering options, and child friendly to large groups!
Overall I felt the food was pretty good but not exceptional. Seemed overpriced for what you got and the service while attentive at times felt rushed.
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.
Great neighborhood spot with fresh and authentic dim sum. Some dishes especially the baked char siu pau are as good as you will find at the best dim sum restaurants around the world
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.
Wide range of Chinese specialties, superbly prepared. Service is excellent and smooth. Staff extremely helpful.
I've not found better Chinese food in San Francisco.
Food is excellent as usual. Great Chinese food in a very nice and comfortable restaurant. Service is alway attentive. Finally, close street parking is never a problem. When I come into San Francisco and want good authentic Chinese food, this is the place.
STANLEY AND KEN ALMOST NEVER DISAPPOINTS. DINED HERE OVER 30 TIMES FOR SMALL AND LARGE OCCASIONS; LUNCH OR DINNERS, SINCE THEY'VE FIRST OPENED.
I celebrated my birthday with a couple buddies there Saturday night and had a great time. It's a little expensive, but the food is delicious and the service is quite good. Definitely worth it! Thanks HKL II!
Overall great food and service, but definitely not vegetarian friendly. Most of their vegetable dishes had meat and substitutions were not allowed.
