Been here a few times, always great dim sum and friendly service, don't know why more places in York don't offer any dim sum as here seems to have the monopoly!

Located in the heart of the city, just minutes away from iconic landmarks including York Minster and The Shambles, Hong Kong Chop House serves arguably the most authentic Chinese cuisine in York.

The restaurant is widely recognised for a range of delicious and authentic Chinese cuisine at wonderfully reasonable prices. Specialising in several Chinese cuisines including Cantonese, Sichuan and Northeast, we aim to present the true authentic Chinese cooking to our customers. In 2014, 2015 & 2016 we have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

Our comprehensive A la carte menu are specifically designed to give you the widest experience of traditional Chinese cuisine. You will recognise not only the old favourites like Aromatic Crispy Duck, Satay, Black Bean and Sweet and Sour, but also some true authentic food which is very common in China.
