chinese. It used to be good. Not anymore.
Used to be a wonderful place.
I've been to Hong Kong Harbour dozens of times over the years - both for dine-in and take-out. So, it saddens me to write this negative review.
Ever since there was a change in management, the restaurant has declined in quality, and my past two visits (Jan & Apr) have been the worst yet. I've tried & enjoyed so many dishes here over the last 12 years - Hong Kong Seafood Bean Curd Pot, tofu dishes, salt and pepper squid, mu shu duck, orange beef. You name it, I've probably tried it.
But the quality has gone downhill. An order of curry chicken and eggplant came with a long hair in it, which is bad, but even worse - there was no attempt to fix the situation when it was brought to the server's attention. An order of mu shu duck came with bones in it - I've had that dish at least 20 times. Never came with bones wrapped up in the pancakes. The corn in the crab and corn soup is now shriveled and old tasting. Silverware/chopsticks never came to the table until asked for. ... The spring rolls are still pretty decent, but do yourself a favor - head up to Buford Highway until Hong Kong Harbour gets its act back together.
OK food if you are hungry. I had a high hope about this place since I love dim sums. I tried in D.C., Las Vegas and NYC. I was hoping that I could eat something else that pancake places for the weekend brunch. It was absolute disappoints starting from steamed shrimp, pork and fried ones. I would not go back there unless I am so hungry or dying for dim sum but I can't get from anywhere else. It would be better shot if you can find frozen dumpling in the asian market and steam them at your own home.
Best In Atlanta!. Where do I start! Iv'e been eating at Hong Kong Harbour for a number of years and I must say the food is great.Some of my favorites are tofu with curry and vegetables, shrimp with vegetables and salt and pepper squid of course. The dim sum is great on the weekends and the staff is friendly as well. One should not get turned off by the decor,the food makes up for it. I say take your friends,take your family or just go it alone! You won't be disappointed.
A Chinese Treat. Excellent service, interesting atmosphere, but the food epitomizes quality Chinese-American cuisine. I've yet to eat at a Chinese restaurant in Georgia whose food tasted better than Hong Kong Harbour.
Best pepper steak in town, Excellent customer service. Excellent customer service, I only waited 10 minutes tops for my order. I had Pepper Steak and the steak was tender and fresh. There were a lot of onions and green peppers that were also very fresh. The quality of the food was much better than your average chinese joint. The decor wasn't that up to date, but I will definitely go back especially with the late hours.
Finally a place where the food is served HOT not cold. Great place for dim sum! If you are not Chinese like me, you may find a lot of Atlanta dim sum joints don't have many english speaking staff so finding out about the dishes may be next to impossible, BUT there is always someone at HKH who speaks well enough to describe it for you. Don't mind the decor, the food makes up for it. Also, unlike a lot of other places, there are good vegetarian dishes and most of the dishes are served HOT which is a big welcome. The clientele are widely diverse which is a great thing. And you can order off the menu during dim sum and the a la carte dishes do not deteriorate in quality. Great seafood!
The best dim sum!.
Really great dim sum, good , quick and friendly service -
the place itself isnt too attractive, looks kinda old.. but, the food makes up for it.
This jewel of the Orient shines with seafood specialties..
Don't let the seedy strip of Cheshire Bridge Road or the cheesy blue neon waterfall deter you from eating at Hong Kong Harbour. This place is a jewel. Asian families request Chinese menus and spin huge Lazy Susans at their circular tables to share communal plates of steaming seafood and vegetables. A tank in the back holds blissfully ignorant Maine lobsters.
Vegetables are consistently crisp and sauces distinctive, but seafood is the real draw. Gobs of tender shrimp, scallops, mussels and squid come in a seafood bean curd pot that will have you digging with anticipation. Dungeness crab and whole salt-and-pepper grilled sole, both house specials, also stand out. Rich garlic sauce, available with a variety of vegetables including eggplant, comes with whole roasted cloves. Try the soothing wintermelon soup or the ginger-infused pot stickers as an appetizer.
DIM SUM IS VERY GOOD. If you like Dim Sum, put this restaurant on the list. Go around 11:15 a.m. for the best selection, but it will be fairly busy. This is, by far, one of the best dim sum restaurants in Atlanta. Don't let the looks of the place fool you. It is good. A family-run business (as evidenced by the teenagers that are obviously expected to work on the weekends, but definitely don't want to be there) that is pleasant, clean, and enjoyable.
