W ehave had Dim Sum everywhere, and this is just the best around. The place is clean and the staff very helpful. G=Food is really great and worth a stop.

Haven't been there in a few years and they apparently just redecorated and had a " grand re-opening". Still best dim sum around and quick polite service. If you arrive before noon you can get into their small parking lot, but if not, there is a big lot across the street. The food is still fabulous with all my favorite... More

There are new owners now. There was a "Grand Opening" sign up the other day we went. We've been coming here for quite some time. Nothing special, all the same, the food before was just meh, and its still just meh now. Some of their "warm" dishes are room temperature at best.

I really can't speak for their menu, because after thirty plus years of coming here I can't remember a time when we ever ordered off of the menu. We come here for family early lunch/Dim sum time. I have eaten Dim Sum most of my life, starting back when I was 4 or 5 years old, and we used to... More

The food is good. Selection good. Portions are good. The service can be slow as someone else pointed out. Parking can be difficult. Once the order has been taken, your food comes fairly quickly.

My sister-in-law requested Dim Sum and suggested House of Hong. While the food was served hot and tasty, I thought it was extremely pricey compared to other restaurants in China Town that offer Dim Sum for lunch. My bill for the 2 of us was $37. Way too much for a lunch! Won't be visiting there anytime soon.

Been going here for years, the best dim sum anywhere, big place, fast service, not the most friendly staff like most Chinese eateries. The Dim Sum is very tasty and they have a great selection on the carts that circle around.

My wife, my brother and I went here on Valentine's Day for Dim Sum before heading to a symphony concert at Benaroya Hall. The very happy and cordial gentleman who directs you to a parking space in their lot was there to greet us...hugs around for the Chinese New Year (of the monkey). We arrived around 11 a.m. and elected... More

We've waited like half an hour to be served with our orders. There was a lot of people especially we were here during the holiday season. We've wanted dimsum but found out they only serve them at a certain time of the day. But we still enjoyed our chinese food. Too bad, they forgot we ordered soup and it came... More

First, get there before 2pm to have the widest selection of dim sum options. Although they are open late in the afternoon, you don't get dim sum late in the day. The best part of that meal was the congee! The dim sum we had was fresh and tasty. We ducked in to get out of the rain. Glad we... More
