simple, decent food, inexpensive, but service is lacking

I eat breakfast there quite often with friends. The food is decent and cheap but the service is non existent. Everyone complains about the service but they keep going. It at a point that they expect bad service.

This place has excellent Hong kong style food, the milk tea is the best in the city. But no service and this place is kind of dirty.

We were starving and it was quite early on a Friday morning, so we wanted breakfast. This place was open early so we ventured in, my daughter especially wanting something and coffee. (I figured we had a better bet to get tea but she did persist). They had some lovely offerings of pre packaged bakery items and what appeared to... More

We ordered Hong Kong milk tea, rice porridge, won ton noodles, Chinese broccoli, and pork cutlet with rice. The last dish we invented. My husband described to the waiter what we were looking for and they made it to his specifications. Our food was really good. My husband has eaten here many times over the past few years and makes...

The locals in Chinatown recommended this restaurant, twice. Beware, they said it was on Justin; however, it was on Jackson. All locals go there and authentic menu with lots of unusual choices. We had the seafood fried rice and roasted duck and brisket. Pretty good.

Food was as bad as their service. Would not recommend this place to nobody. There are lots of way better options around there!

Traditional Hong Kong Cafe. As expected, the service is not good (unless you eat there often and know the people). But, there is a huge variety to choose from. From soup noodles, rice, pasta, sandwiches and steaks there's bound to be something to your taste. They open early to quite late. The portions can be massive. I got the baked... More

Our family has been going to ABC on Noriega Street for a long time (sometimes we'd go to the one in Chinatown) even though both places are known to have very bad service, but we like the variety food selection so we always think it will be better next time (wishful thinking). On July 10th, my family went there for... More

I traveled with my mother and we were the only westerners in the restaurant. Some what bad service since you have to call the waitress to get service.. i guess we were not trained for their protocol in service. We are really laid back so this was not an issue at all. We liked the food so much we went... More

I ordered a hot lemon tea and chinese won ton/shui gao (different style of won tons) with noodles. I chased my lemon tea twice with different waiter/waitress and gave up. It never turned up. The won ton/shui gao with noodles were good and were just like Hong Kong style. Would have been better without the msg. Good value for what... More
