My family ate here. All of the food served was excellent. We ordered Crispy Rose Shrimp, Salt and Pepper Calamari, Moo Shi Pork, and Chicken Fried Rice. Everything was fresh and hot. The service was pretty bad, however. My son spilled his drink early on, and I couldn't even get anyone over to help clean it up. Ever. We had... More

We ate here several years ago, and our meal was just as good as I remembered! We had orange chicken and Szechuan chicken (Kung Pao) and both were great! I would have no problem visiting here again!

Do they realize that customers are what pays the bills? Try a warm greeting, smiles, polite conversation, thanks for coming, etc. The onions in my meal were not fresh...and it takes a long time for onions to go bad.

The taste is okay, but we ordered pea sprouts, a nice choice. Stir fried fresh veggie tastes wonderful

Fred refused to serve us food after informing him the drink he made was horribly mixed. I used to eat there once a week but never again. Thanks Fred!

I don't know what happened to Hong Kong it use to be really good. I was not impress by the customer service. I mean the hostess did offer me to seat when I was waiting for my take out...but still I feel like the atmosphere and hostess was lukewarm. But food was decent. But what alot of restaurants need to... More

Exactly what you need if you're in a rush. Good food. Nice people. Good service and the location couldn't be more convenient.

the bar is good, cheap beer compared to other places (4.5$) and some cool coktails. however, the club is poor (altough it is free which is cool) but the DJ isn't really good, poor music transition, saturated sound (either old instalation or 192 kbps music quality).

This is the closest I have found to St. Louis Shrimp Fried Rice. I kept going back to Hong Kong for the Shrimp Fried Rice each day while in Cambridge. It is open until 2 AM. They do not have ground red pepper so you need to bring your own. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Ask for... More
