With the demise of Yenching, Harvard Square is now without a decent Chinese restaurant. Ducked into the Hong Kong for a quick lunch and ordered the General Gao's chicken luncheon. It was not very good, not very warm, and overall very disappointing. The chicken part was mostly breading with no vegetables and tepid fried rice. At least the service was... More

Enjoyed everything we ordered! Started with chicken soup with rice noodles, then seafood. Quick, friendly authentic service.

Went here with some friends who spoke the language - don't know if this makes a difference but our service was super fast and friendly. Recommend the lobster special and clams.

My family ate here. All of the food served was excellent. We ordered Crispy Rose Shrimp, Salt and Pepper Calamari, Moo Shi Pork, and Chicken Fried Rice. Everything was fresh and hot. The service was pretty bad, however. My son spilled his drink early on, and I couldn't even get anyone over to help clean it up. Ever. We had... More

We ate here several years ago, and our meal was just as good as I remembered! We had orange chicken and Szechuan chicken (Kung Pao) and both were great! I would have no problem visiting here again!

Do they realize that customers are what pays the bills? Try a warm greeting, smiles, polite conversation, thanks for coming, etc. The onions in my meal were not fresh...and it takes a long time for onions to go bad.

The taste is okay, but we ordered pea sprouts, a nice choice. Stir fried fresh veggie tastes wonderful

Fred refused to serve us food after informing him the drink he made was horribly mixed. I used to eat there once a week but never again. Thanks Fred!

I don't know what happened to Hong Kong it use to be really good. I was not impress by the customer service. I mean the hostess did offer me to seat when I was waiting for my take out...but still I feel like the atmosphere and hostess was lukewarm. But food was decent. But what alot of restaurants need to... More
