I'm a big fan of Hakaw (shrimp dumplings) and I make sure that I hunt the best hakaw in my place. Unfortunately, i stumbled upon a quite famous dumpling restaurant in the city and of course I ordered Hakaw to see what it is like. Not to bash on the resto, but I really DID NOT like/enjoy my hakaw so... More

Dropped by here for a quick take out. It's been ages since my last take out. Been eating here for almost 2 decades now... and it's still good. We had the jumbo siopao - meaty and heavy siopao equivalent to one lunch! It's a bun with a big chunk of meat, a small piece of chinese sausage and a slice... More

If you want a change from all the fried Filipino food then this is the place to go. Food was good and so was the friendly service. Does not look very inviting from the outside but is ok inside. Would go again.

If ever I would have a craving for dimsum and I happen to pass by Kowloon West Avenue, I would always buy their Hong Kong style chicken pao and rolls. The chicken pao is smaller than the regular siopao. Kowloon also has a hot/spicy/sweet sauce to accompany the chicken pao and crispy rolls. I also like the siomai. I would... More

Always loved this part of qc because of the low key food places and relatively quiet and safe surroundings. When Im in the neighborhood, I always stop by kowloon house for some jumbo special. So filling, so good! It's got everything! My favorite part is when I take a big bite and chance upon the chinese sausage and salted egg... More

We like their siopao(steamed buns) they have great servings, are very tasty and they don't scrimp on the fillings. Their noodles are good too you should try it with their steamed buns and bring a friend with you because its hard to eat it all.
