HK Flower Lounge located in Millbrae, across SFO, is easy access if you're killing time before your flight and craving for chinese food. We were disappointed tho that dimsum was served only during lunch. Never-the-less, food was very tasty. It bothered me tho that they didn't have black vinegar for my soup. I've eaten here in the past and can... More

Came here with my parents for Father's Day weekend. We arrived early, about 10.:45am to beat the crowds as we thought the Father Day's weekend would be crazy. Dim sum, here, has always been consistently above average and this meal was no exception. the have the classic dishes like siu mai, hai gow, spareribs and other lunch dishes like porridge... More

Our extended family members in San Francisco treated us to this restaurant for dim sum for a few times when we visited last mid-May (2013). We mostly had dim sum. Of course, they cannot be compared to that of Hong Kong, though honestly, by their standard, it is not bad at all. Some dim sum could still be done better,... More

This restaurant has been around for sometime, recently took some friends and ordered a set menu for 6 persons. The set menu came with a the Peking duck which was kind of disappointed. The duck skin comes with some fat in it and it wasn't tasty at all. Obviously the chef may not know how to roast a Peking duck.... More

Heard about this place from locals (ate here while on a business trip). Very authentic Cantonese cuisine. The place is really busy and tough to get into during prime hours, but that is a positive (empty restaurants are a bad sign). Parking is not great (insufficient quantity), but, you can find nearby if needed.

Hadn't been here in over a decade (I don't live in CA) and got the chance to return on a business trip - the quality is still there for this Cantonese dining and dim sum restaurant (not sure the specific times they serve dim sum), and really a Millbrae institution. This time I had the beef with Chinese broccoli -... More

This is a very popular and traditional Hong Kong (HK) restaurant that I have been going to for decades. Food is very good traditional (portions are a bit small though). Service is better than most Chinese restaurants. Clean and fresh & live seafood make this place special

We were on our way back to SFO airport and stopover to have lunch. We had the weekday special - lobster porridge for $25. The food left us breathless and the cooking was top notch. The porridge and the whole lobster was huge. Mouth watering, tasty and finger licking good. You must eat to believe and to taste Cantonese porridge... More
