This is one of the real treats if you are a fan of Chinese cuisine. We tend to go every few weeks. There is nothing particularly memorable with the decor, but the food certainly overrides any of that. We tend to try several items and share. The soups are a great way to start. We will munch on fried wontons with our soup. The special combinations are plenty for most appetites, but again part of the fun is sharing. This restaurant has been around for decades for a reason.

I've traveled to San Antonio many times and always go for Mexican. I was running out of gas and stumbled on the "oldest" Chinese restaurant in the city? Who cares, it was great. I had a seafood combo on a sizzler platter. It said lobster and it actually had lobster plus shrimp and scallops. Wonderful. With an ice cold mug for my Tsing Tao, excellent restaurant.

This historic restaurant used to be good but has gone down hill over the years. Crappy food, bad service. Go to the nice restaurant down the street instead. Can't remember the name but anything is better than Hung Fong.

Authentic, old school, Chinese American resturaunt circa 1939! The oldest one in San Antonio. Wow, what a find. Put aside that I fed five people for less than a single person at the overpriced 20nine I also reviewed today. The food is good! The menu is classic! Its is a time machine that probably looked the same when Humphrey Bogart at there. I had a great time. My friends who lived in China for a year recommended it as you can get pretty much anything there you can get in China, and you can order off menu if you want... we just had everything served family style and it was wonderful.

Some items over the years have improved with freshness (like some of the veggies) but the rice is still hard and dry.The tofu veggie delight was pretty good (a hit). The veggies were not overdone but the portion size was small. The plastic tea cups are original with broken chips on the surface and it seems to match the 1970's tables, nasty carpet and decor. My kids like the orange chicken (fried) with the greasy fried rice and french fries but there were no vegetables served on any of the children's plates (a total miss).
