I have been to the Hong Kong Tea Bar about 3 times and always had a good experience. The food is reasonably priced and always tasty. If they are not very busy the food is prompt and only takes about 5 minutes to be served. The portions are filling and there is a large and good choice from the Menu. Not too keen on the tea they serve but thats my only complaint. Would Recommend.

I've been living in Portsmouth for nearly 10 years and since discovering the HKTB on my first year I've been coming back ever since!

Its main menu price has only changed once from memory from £4.00 to £4.30 and they felt they had to justify it at the time saying it was due to oil and rice prices increases.

I've had most of the menu by now and it's consistently good. Atmosphere is hit and miss but it's a Chinese cafe in the town centre at the end of the day. Service is simply prompt, but it's mainly selling point is value for money. Food is great, great portions and great value for money, time and time again.

Long may it continue.

Tried this little place on recommendation on a shopping trip to Portsmouth. I'm afraid I was not impressed - waited quite a long time to be served even though it was not busy and when the food arrived it was a measly portion made with dried noodles. I kid you not - the chow mein had dried noodles, about 10 strips of chicken and some bamboo shoots and that was it. Kept watching Chinese customers getting massive portions and having take-aways prepared while we waited ages, even though they came in after us. Methinks there could be a little preferential treatment for Chinese customers and there are a lot of Chinese students in Portsmouth. Would definitely not recommend to anyone.

We eat at the Tea Bar at least once a week.The food is great value, service is quick and friendly. Tables are quickly cleared and cleaned. Always busy with a mix of customers, many of whom are Chinese students. Always a good sign for an ethnic eatery. Highly recommen<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC

For under fiver you could get a decent meal with a drink. Better value than those fast food chains down town. I come here before doing my shopping. It's busy during lunch time from 11.30 to 2pm. Be aware! I usually order the roast duck noodle soup which cost around £6.70. Last week ordered a whole roast duck to take home for dinner which cost £20.
