Been going there since I was a teenager. Excellent dim sum for lunch which is what I usually go there for. For dinner, I usually have noodle or rice dishes which are good but it is the dim sum which rules. However, if you can't snatch one of the booths since this is a small place, you may have to share a table with other folks which Chinese don't mind but Americans don't like. I never have problems with the waitresses, they are attentive but then maybe it's because I'm Chinese :)

I've been going to Hop Kee since I was a child and there's no better place to eat authentic chinese food. The atmosphere isn't exactly "chinese" in a generic sense, but it's all part of the Hop Kee experience. Try the wor wonton soup, peking style pork chops, and the snails cantonese style (if you're bold enough--it's worth it!) My family enjoys the flounder/sea bass in black bean sauce (I'm not too fond of fish) too. The waiters are pretty attentive and friendly, and we've never had a problem with them. Overall, a great place to eat if you're ever in Chinatown.

Have been a regular for over 20 years. This is the place if you want generous, tasty, well-prepared Chinese food in Chinatown. If you want to truly enjoy the experience, go with a large group and share, family style, different dishes...you are bound to find several 'favorites' immediately. If you engage the waiters, they will truly respond with extra care. The Wor-Wonton soup is a wonderful way to start a tasty meal at Hop Kee. Enjoy!

I and my cousin went to this restaurant, after we finished we paid and the waitress said to us don't forget to left the tips (absolutely we were not going to forget it). While my cousin preparing the tips , the waitress came again to us and banging the cup to the table many time while saying " Ya ya ya don't to much talking where is the tips." I and my cousin very upset about it and left the restaurant. On the way out, we saw an old man (seems like the owner), he knew the waitress problem and didn't do anything about it. Is this hop kee waitres's America dream????

The portions are big enough to share....but you won't want to! The Peking Pork is crunchy, fresh, not too sweet and goes great with garlic sauteed spinach. The salted squid melts in your mouth!
