Went without a booking on a Saturday night. Was empty at 7.00pm but full by 8.00pm. Food was tasty and bigger than average portions

I think this cafe may be related to the one in Newport with the same name that we have used and is reasonable. But this one in Ryde is best missed. Food is a bit mediocre and were disappointed..

It all started off quite well - we fancied a Chinese after a nice day out. This place looked nice, the Waitress was friendly took our orders, brought our drinks out etc. Starters were simple enough - spring rolls (which were impressively nuclear hot), some chicken satay style skewers & I chose Hong Kong style spare ribs which were Ok...

My family had a takeaway meal from here and it was just OK. My chicken with cashew dish was very slightly undercooked, and the sauce on it sweeter than I've ever had with that dish. The portion size was quite good. The egg fried rice was a bit oily, and wasn't as large a portion as I'd have expected. Overall... More

The noodles were certainly prepared quickly and were really tasty but they were quite dry and oily....hence the average rating. Menu looked quite impressive though and I wish we had had time to try some of the other dishes

Just sitting in Hong Kong express eating from their enticing menu. We are eating the buffet menu, which you can eat as much as you like and order as many times as you like for around £15 pound. The service is great and food lovely too. I can personally recommend Won Ton soup, it's the best I've had in a... More

We came here for an evening meal but were a little disappointed. The soups were ok, the service was rather iffy though. The duck was ok but the Hong Kong crispy chicken overfacing and disappointing. My dog appreciated it more.

Popped in here for something to eat before getting the ferry back to the mainland.I ordered the Pork Fried Rice and found it to be very disappointing.Just flavourless and bland.There are some good reviews on here of this place so maybe I just ordered the wrong thing,or perhaps the owners exploit the excellent location of this place opposite the pier...

Whenever we visit the island we pay a visit here. The food is always piping hot and great value for money. Once you get used to the 'bistro style' (everything served on your plate) it's great! Definatly worth a visit.
