Mayflower Seafood Restaurant
The glazed green tiles on the roof are to ward off evil spirits. The red color that dominates the dining room of Hong Kong Flower Lounge is for good luck. It must work. This warm and friendly place serves great food to locals who flock in from opening to closing every day. The Cantonese cuisine features flavorful pan-fried noodles with a variety of toppings, hearty beef and chicken dishes and, at lunch, a wonderful selection of dim sum. You know the fish is fresh because you choose it yourself from a tank. There is a full service bar, too, that makes a memorable Singapore Sling. Please see the website for further information.
Great dim sum, with better than your standard choices. We've only been to Hong Kong Flower Lounge on Sundays for dim sum, but it's good enough to bring us back.
That being said, it's very crowded and if you're going to go, get there before 11:30 or be prepared to wait for 45 minutes shoulder to shoulder. Once you get seated, the food is plentiful and quick, though the staff is a bit overstressed and rather slow to bring items you request (silverware, extra drinks, etc.).
Just get in for a three months engagement. On my first day at work, my ABC co-worker took me to this temple like restaurant. We had shrimp dumpling, pork siu mai, turnip cake, fried taro gor, cheung fun, poach chinese vegetable and Combo pan-fried noodles. Not so crazy about any of them. The dumplings and cheung fun skin are too thick, the food taste in general are too bland. Unlike them, I do not put soy or chili sauce in any of my food because they supposed to be tasty by themselves. I was turn off when most of the food are only luke warm. I like my dim sum piping hot (from the steamer and fryer). No wonder they no longer have any branch in Hong Kong. Got to find some place good fast!
I come here every couple of years. Every time I go there, I get disappointed. Even my friends and boyfriend I take there are disappointed. I only took my friends there just so they can judge themselves. None of them would want to go back there and prefer the other places I usually take them to. The food is just average if even and the price is high. There used to be several branches but through the years have pretty much all closed down. I can absolutely see why. I would not recommend going here, but I would say at least try it once to make the judgement call yourself.
