This is not a typical place you go to get egg rolls and fried rice ( not that they're not good). If you come empty stomach, you want to fill it up with their specialty- dim sum. This is the best place for dim sum in RTP area. The restaurant has been around for decades and dim sum is authentic and flavorful. Spare ribs is steamed with black beans that you can still see and taste. Steamed Shrimp dumplings and turnip cakes are my point of reference for dim sum. They certainly know what they're doing.im definitely grateful to have a little piece of Hong Kong in Durham!

Went for dim sum over the weekend. Pretty much everything was good. I especially liked the sauteed bok choy and shrimp dumplings. Don't forget to try their iced soy milk that they make in house. It was mild and lightly sweet, and a good accompaniment to the rest of the table. Get the sesame balls as a dessert, that is if you have room left! There is ample parking too.

The best dim sum place in the triangle area. This place is packed on weekends. People lined up before 11 a.m. for a table. They have a great variety of dishes including congee. The chicken feet is my favorite. Try to go there on weekdays to avoid long lines.

Wonderful place for dim sum. Very friendly service and excellent, genuine dishes at moderate prices. We have been eating here for years... dim sum on week-ends and holidays and regular menu at other times and have always had an outstanding meal.

I've been here twice and the dim sum is very good. They have one of the best hot and sour soups in the area and their Hong Kong noodles with beef is the best! The service was very good and friendly as well. I'll be coming back when I need my fix of dim sum and noodles!

Best place in Durham for dim sum. Get there early because there can be a wait as it fills up quickly. I love being able to speak Cantonese with the servers.

Good food. Decent service. You’re not welcomed by anyone walking in the most times though.

I first ate at this restaurant in 1997. It is absolutely the best Chinese food that I have found in the state of North Carolina, and Virginia. Very consistent. They have dim sum and a wide selection in their menu. In my opinion you will not be disappointed.

This place is a favorite and we go every month or so. The Dim Sum is great and the price is reasonable. Been going for 4 years now and today's visit was the only time the service was slow and the selection less than normal. We still had plenty to eat but missed some of our faces. So, I would go with 4.5 🌟 but I can't do I gave a 5.

They have the BEST steamed pork dumplings! I eat at least 4 every time I go! They are so good! They have amazing dim sung and jasmine tea! As well as egg drop soup, well pretty much everything there is good!

We enjoyed our meal very much at Hong Kong Chinese.Quality food with a quiet setting ,seats far enough apart to carry on a conversation. Food was very good. Service was excellent.Everything was above average. We will be going back soon .

I am a good cook myself- also a Korean - so I tend to be very conservative when I give ratings.
That being said, I am fairly happy with the food I had here. Yesterday, I ordered pork buns, sesame chicken, shrimp dumpling, szechuan shrimp/fried rice. The sesame chicken was the crispiest chicken that I have ever had in chinese restaurant in the united stated for the last ten years, so color me impressed! The shrimp dumpling was just about right size for me - and i am a BIG eater - and the Szechuan shrimp was seasoned properly and tasty.
The downsides, however, were the pork buns and the fried rice. The stuffing had barely any flavor,and the fried rice was also too bland! However, with kind staff members, it was overall good experience.

The food is amazing, and the dim sum service means you get food quickly if you go at a time they do dim sum. The prices are also good. Only problem is the lines for dim sum.

The food is warm. Place is a little small and could definitely use a bigger parking lot.

Had a good time trying all the different foods. Great place to go with a few friends if you like or want to try dim sum

Great authentic dim sum. We love eating here. Whenever we're homesick for NYC dim sum, a visit to Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant cures that.
The ladies are so nice and the food is delicious. If you're looking for sweet and sour pork, they have it. But why bother? You can get that anywhere.
The atmosphere isn't much but we're here for the food.

One of the great things about the 21st century Triangle is that we can now find as in NYC and other large cities wonderful bargain priced off the beaten path places to eat with first class food. In a small house on Guess Rd in North Durham is the Hong Kong with great and authentic dim sum and delicious menu selections. It is a treasure that local foodies need to know labout. No full bar - but beer, wine and sake. Most of all friendly service and great food.

This is the best, most authentic dim sum in the Triangle area. It is a bit of a haul coming from Brier Creek but well worth it. While the outer and inner appearance definitely show the establishment’s age, the best food is often found at these hole-in-the-wall places. Whenever I know I am going here, I am more than willing to add an additional ‘cheat day’ to my diet.
