“Hong Kong Quality”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Working close by I have enjoyed Hakka every few weeks since it opened. The quality and service are consistently good. Good fresh stock for soup noodles with the noodles freshly made. Very difficult to beat.

“Family friendly”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We grabbed an early eve meal here with our toddler and the staff were excellent. It is nice to be in a restaurant where children are welcomed. Nice little children's menu though our child just shared our food. The waitress brought our son a free ice cream with our bill which was a lovely treat. Staff excellent. Only complaint is that a side should be included in price of most main courses.

“What has happened?”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

For many years this was a reasonably authentic Japanese style restaurant with a nice menu including a proper selection of dumplings and noodles.

I called in last night and found that the once diverse and interesting menu had been reduced to a 2 page generic 'Chinese' menu featuring the typical phoney western made dishes like honey chilli chicken and sweet and sour. Literally all of the colorful and interesting dishes have been removed from the menu.

I used to love this place. I am gutted. It is no longer a noodle bar at all. Almost the exact same food (at a much lower price) can be had at its sister restaurant Gaze on the Ormeau Road. At Gaze (which is owned by the same management) they at least include a side order within the price of a main: here last night they did not.

It's always sad to see the downfall of a once decent restaurant. This is now wildly overpriced and really just a dumbed down typical Chinese.

It's uniqueness is gone and with it its reason for existing.

Shame on the management!

“Poor quality take away food”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This place was recommended by a colleague.The food was poor quality and very gloopy and sickly. I ordered chilli squid which arrived within 2 minutes and I assumed it would be raw however, it was very over cooked which made me assume this was it's second cooking and that it had just been re-heated - dissappointing.

The duck with orange sauce was so sickly and sweet I could hardly eat it and the sauce was really thick and gloopy as though full of msg and over cooked.

I also order a watermelon juice from the 'freshly squuezed juice' section which was just a pre-made syurp that they diluted and unpleasant nothing fresh about it at all.

Nothing seemed fresh here and food seemed to have been re-heated I also asked the waitress for some chopsticks for my meal and she huffed off as though I had really put her out.
