The Hong Kong Flower Lounge is an old reliable Chinese restaurant in Millbrae not far from the San Francisco International Airport, making it a convenient place to dine before outgoing and after incoming air flights. The cuisine served here is authentically prepared and served to a most discriminating clientèle--the Chinese themselves. This is a practical yardstick with which to measure... More

Very good dim sum in the San Francisco area. With the degradation of the dim sum in San Fran China Town, place out in Millbrae close to the SFO airport is a very nice place with good service and good food.

The food is pretty good in the middle of a town filled with Chinese restaurants. PROBLEM: They blatantly cater to the Chinese. If you are not Chinese or do not speak Mandarin/Cantonese, the treatment is distinctly different. Made reservations for 8:00pm, arrived at 7:45pm with an working associate from Dallas, TX. Upon arrival, we thought that we would check in... More

My husband and I thought the dim sum was very good when we arrived at 2:15 pm on a Saturday in May; we wanted to return for a more leisurely dim sum ever since. I even invited my sister and niece to join us because I wanted to try their desserts. We ordered the Mini Japanese Octopus with Seaweed, Deep... More

Come here for dim sum or dinner when i have a long transit time before my next flight. Food is authentic Hong Kong style in flavour. Service can be a hit or a miss and depends if you know anyone working there or not. Would recommend this place if you are in the area and craving for Chinese food.

We don't have good Chinese food where I live and this was recommended. It is a little pricey but very good. They did mess up one of the items we ordered but I would go there again. Very convenient to the hotels south of the airport.

I've been to this restaurant before and liked it. We came to the restaurant about 6:30 pm and valet parked the car. We walked in and asked for a table and were told there were none available because of a large wedding reception. It would have been nice if they had told the valet parking guys about this or put...

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
