Taste of Hong Kong
Don't let the address fool you, this little gem is located on International Drive at the corner of Carrier Drive and just three miles from Universal Studios. Specializing in delivery and take-out, Taste of Hong Kong is a no-nonsense eatery designed to provide the basics for tourists, business folks and locals alike: great Chinese food at great prices. Offering free delivery to a host of nearby hotels and quick walk-in and take-out, Taste of Hong Kong has just what you need when your taste buds scream: Chinese food!
1. Food is simply un-authentic. We ordered:
beef broccoli: the broccoli was soggy and so darkened. Too much oil
In authentic HK cuisine : the broccili must be
green and crunchy-ish
half a barbecued duck: the meat was so tough and blackened. The skin was oily soggy. The inside of bone and the cartilage were black from overcooking. Authentic HK cuisine: the meat must be white and soft, skin is dry and crunchy, bone inside is red. Cartilage must stay white and crunchy.
Rice: was too dry. Authentic HK : must have more moisture than what was served
In brief, food was just simply badly overcooked and over-used of soy sauce and oil
2. Service: Waitress had real problem with body odor. From the dining room, we could smell the kitchen . The restroom was filthy and stinky.
3. Decoration: looks like a cheap eatery, nothing exceptional.
4. Price: way, way overpriced for its food and service. Each entree cost $14-$15. Quantity of food was low. 4 bowls of rice cost $7. The restaurant
automatically added %15 tip to the bill, even though we were a party of 4, and our total ws around $40 before tax
We found that this restaurant was unworthy for our time, money and taste-buds. We will never come back or recommend anyone to visit it.
Most importantly, please do not take the restaurant name as truth.
Its food does not represent good, authentic Hongkong cuisine in no way, shape or form.
We've been to Orlando twice and this restaurant 3 times. Tried some of their dim-sum's, noddle and dinner dishes.
Overall speaking, the taste of food was all-right or acceptable (comparing to other North America cities where you would find much larger Chinese population).
Some people complained about their prices and services. We didn't - because we didn't expect much, mainly because we were hunger for Chinese food after staying in Orlando several days and had enough of American (fast) food.
Would we go back again if we are in Orlando again? Not if we have other and/or better choices (that we know of). Do we?
We are Chinese and have eaten in NYC, San Francisco and Hong Kong.
It was only average. There were NO CARTS. The Dim Sum was ordered off a menu.
I don't think there are any authentic Dim Sum places in the Orlando area.
The dishes were very overpriced for the size of the dish. We ordered a beef dish which cost $15.00 and there were 5 repeat 5 pieces of beef and the balance of the dish was onions and scallion. We also ordered scambled egg with shrimp and I don't think there was 5 pieces of shrimp. We also experienced the waiter standing by our table until we paid and tipped which is very rude.
Dim sum there were really good, very authentic. However, the SERVICE is HORRIBLE. We were served by this waitress who looks like in the age of 50. After she gave us the bill, she actually just STOOD RIGHT NEXT TO US TO SEE HOW MUCH WE ARE GONNA PUT FOR THE TIP, which is really RUDE and SHAMED TO THE RESTAURANT to have such unpolite waitress. Well, if her service was good or her attitudes were polite, she would definitely deserved more for tips. But she couldnt just stand by the costumers and stared at the bill. That is just so OUTRAGEOUS. Besides, the restaurant stinked when we first arrived in the noon. I guess it is because the AC wasn't turned on yet. We were very disappointed at it. We won't ever go back even though the dim sum is good. There are many restaurants with good food n good service outthere.
Best Dim Sum in Florida! Chef's are authentic culinary experts from Hong Kong. Alex the owner not only makes you feel at home, but makes you feel like the only patron in his place. A truly unique experience of authentic chinese cuisine fused with Western style of attention to customer service. Getting ready to have dim sum there now!
