Super fast service and the food was pretty good. We went for dinner so did not experience the yum cha carts. The Hong Kong noodles were the best dish we got. Half of the restaurant was closed off, which was a bit odd. If I lived closer I think this would be a great takeout spot.

Decent variety, but what you get and when depends on where you are. Things were tasty, but the warmth of the dish varied from piping hot to lukewarm. Portions were quite good other than the veggies(especially for the price). Much prefer other places in the triangle.

The servers were so nice! Food was pretty mediocre - also there are things on the menu that have shrimp that don’t say it on the menu, so watch out if you have a seafood allergy. It was completely dead at 7:30 on a Saturday - maybe this place used to be better / busier in the past? Don’t think I’ll be back.

Went for Dim Sum which is only served on Sundays. Busy as usual Abt 10 min wait today. Always worth it. Went with nephew & his kids who love eating here on Sundays.

A lovely lunch on Lunar New years Day. A very nice selection of fresh and hot Dim Sum. A seafood pan-fried noodle order topped everything off. Service was excellent in that carts were constant on a day that you can imagine was very busy. Hats off to them.

Legit dim sum place in the area that's good and affordable. Got here 15 min before they opened on a Sunday and there was a line forming already. People kept snatching things off the carts as they came out so you know it's hot and delicious! Fried shrimp balls were a favorite. Would definitely come back again.

I have had dim sum in Hong Kong and mainland China before. This is probably the best place to eat authentic dim sum in the triangle. I went on a Saturday and their service was quick. It took about 10 minutes to get a table but once we sat down, we got our tea pretty fast and the dim sum carts were on a roll. The place was packed and you can tell people were enjoying their meal. I have been trying to find a restaurant with good chow fun in Cary but no luck. This IS the place to get authentic chow fun that has the wok hei taste. The rice noodles don’t stick together which is a must in chow fun. I will be coming back for dim sum!

The take out service really need to be improved. I came here to pickup my order two weeks in a roll and I had to stand in the 88 degrees outside to wait on the line to pickup my order for +40 mins after I called to place the order 1.5 hrs ago. After 40 mins wait at pickup line, I finally paid with credit card and then I was asked to for the food in the car for another +hour?! In the end, we just want to cancel the order to get the money back. To call order/pickup suppose to be quick and efficient. Apparently the phone call to order and pickup will take +2 hours. Twice in two weeks same experience is too much. [Updated] I went back for take out two weeks later. Everything seems to improved. I was able to pickup take out order in 30 mins after ordering on the phone.

Dim sum is very nice and reasonable. Chow Ho Fun is a bit pricy ($14.95), as it is mostly rice noodle without much beef or veggie

Great dim sum place in Durham. Lots of choices and it’s always packed on weekends. Make sure to go early:)

Favorite gem for dim sum. Our Hong Kong friend told us only go for sundays, so we only went for dim sum on Sundays and it's been amazing.

Great food! You probably have to wait awhile to order because the line is out the door or they’re to busy cooking to-go orders.

You want to eat real authentic Chinese cuisine, this is the place to go...you're going to pay a little bit more money but is all worth every single penny...my favorite is the House Special fry rice and Orange Chicken large and that will take me for 4 days and that's not for $26....highly recommend....

Went at around 1:30. Service was slow to none and food wasn't fresh. Got our dim sum fix, but probably wouldn't return.

This is a real find! Well-prepared and social distancing is observed. The service is friendly and very efficient. The menu is extensive but extremely well-prepared--from dimsum to more complicated dishes.

Definitely recommend. I had a very serious GI thing going on for months and by the time it was starting to get better I’d just lost my appetite entirely, even for my favorite foods. We tried this place one night and I had an appetite suddenly for the first time. I eat their hot and sour soup with most of my meals now. We’ve only tried a few of their entrees, but the garlic shrimp is definitely our favorite. Really nice flavor and texture.

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. Update: My partner and I brought my mother to Hong Kong Restaurant when she visited. The owner took special care to make sure we got the best experience from the authentic Hong Kong cuisine to the lively Cantonese banter and more authentic Hong Kong cuisine. One thing of note, the restaurant is allowing dine-in during the pandemic by reservations only and social distancing within the restaurant. Every precaution was taken and our safety was never in question. Thank you so so much for everything.

I haven't liked everything I've gotten there....but it's all been well made, good quality, and full of flavors lol (bitter melon is a jarring experience if you haven't had it before)

I love this restaurant. Been going there for Sunday dim sum for years and years. Never had a bad experience. Excellent food, and excellent service. Their regular Hong Kong noddle menu is also fine and I frequently order some to take home. And they are so inexpensive. I would be happy to eat there every day.

Love this place. It's the best Chinese I have in Durham. The hot & sour soup is a favorite. My son loves their dumplings. I have tried nothing that I don't like at this place.

The crab Rangoon as an appetizer was delicious and Sesame Seed Chicken dinner was delicious. Wish they delivered! Will go again for sure.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

The pork fried rice was delicious. However I was not a fan of their fried duck. Normally a delicacy, the flavor here was pretty decent but I don't know what was up with the breading they used. Was a bit strange and ruined the flavors of the duck for me. Will return to the soon and try something else

I have had dim sum in Hong Kong, Vancouver, San Francisco, NY and many other cities. Have to say that I was very impressed with the exceptional food quality, ingredients use and the service. Stir fried dishes were presented with just the right amount of "wok hei". It's a family run restaurant so you can really taste and feel the love and care put into the food. Very impressed, this is one of the best kept secret in town. We will be back next time we are in the area again.

Ordered with Uber Eats. Had to wait 1hour 20mins for the food to arrive. The dumplings were okay. Don’t recommend the buns. I’d rather buy frozen buns from Liming.
