We arrived to HK late in the evening and after checking into our hotel, our first order of business was to head to Wu Kong for dumplings. We also ordered Shanghai style fried noodles, sautéed vegetables, beancurd with preserved vegetables/edamame and fish in wine sauce. Thank goodness there are pictures on the menu is all I can say! We left... More

Wu Kong has been serving customers in Hong Kong for many years. Their Xiao Long Bao are very nice, Gung Pao chicken is excellent. Clean and efficient. Considering the location the prices are reasonable.

So we were after something a bit smarter than street food, and found Wu Kong Shanghai. It's on the corner, but downstairs.... where it's smart and there is a nice buzz. The waiter (Philip) was great, but suspect other members of staff were a little more serious. The food was good, of a high quality, the Dim Sum was particularly... More

Having spent our last three days in rather smart HK restaurants (all good), we needed to go local and Wu Kong delivered.. This below stairs and very bright Kowloon restaurant seats 140 and we were the only 4 westerners- good sign! Our waiter instantly recognised us as hopelessly lost and guided us through the menu. We ate very well (... More

Expensive by local standards, a bit more than I'd expect to pay in Sydney. Chicken with jellyfish had neither life nor flavour. Manager visibly invented a charge for steamed rice that did not appear in the menu. Given nature of dishes and cultural preferences hard to believe most of them aren't eaten with rice so if there is no charge... More

The entrance to Wu Kong is not on Nathan Road but is quite easy to find. The basement restaurant had mainly local customers when we went in for a late supper. That's normally a good sign, but our food was no better than average. Perhaps we would have fared better if we had arrived earlier, because the place was recommended... More

We decided to go to this restaurant last night as the prices looked reasonable compared to a lot of the restaurants in the area. We were lucky to get a table for two as the place was very busy with locals which we consider to be a good indicator of good food. The menu contained very different dishes to those... More

Located right in the heart of Kowloon, a 10 minute walk from Harbour city mall. I was staying at the Marco Polo so decided to venture out to this restaurant. It is not fancy at all. In the basement, I had to wait for 5 minutes, was alone so got a table fairly quickly. Had the hot and sour soup... More

We were staying near this restaurant and finding many of the restaurants in the area were aimed at tourists and so very expensive. We found this restaurant through tripadvisor. It does appear to be favoured by locals more than tourists and the prices were really reasonable for this area. There was a huge menu which made it hard to choose.... More
