Not a bad place to dine afterall...

I went there the 2nd time on Sunday for lunch. It wasnt crowded, only a few tables were occupied, the food was good and hot unlike the other time we were there. Our tea drinks were constantly topped up by the waitress. A big change from the earlier visit. Hopefully, they can maintain this good service even the restaurant is croweded. They cant manage if the place is packed, the boss should engage more staff.

Big change

when Old Hong Kong Esence commernce business, I also bought voucher from Goupon and went to for dinner, that was frist time I went to Old Hong Kong Essence . There were too many customers in the restaurant at the same time , the air condition was not working I think ,because very hot inside . my friends and I wait so long time for our dinner , 5 minutes to 10 minutes came only one dish , but it was not just for our dish , every customers dish also came too slow. we aksed the waiters to hastened our dishes again and again . but still too slow . we spended 2 hours in this restaurant but we have not eaten yet, so we thought we wouldn't came again. 2 month later , my friend buy the Old Hong Kong Essence buffet vouche from Goupon . when my frined told me she wanted to go to the Old Hong Kong Essence, i tried to persuade her don't go , becasue i have been cheated , i didn't want she would  be cheated . but she did'nt listen to me . so we went to Old Hong Kong Essence again . but at this time , Old Hong Kong Essence has a big change , although all the seats were full of people, but all the dished came very fast and very cold inside becasue the air condition was working !

DON'T waste your $ and calories !!!

All the bad reviews on OHKE are true, fair and accurate! Bought groupon voucher for this cafe and redeemed it recently, with utter regret and disgust; regret because I have never tasted such bad food and disgust that OHK group serves such substandard food to their customers.

The dim sum spread was pathetic with several items not available. Many of the items were served cold which I sent them back to the kitchen to be warmed, repeatedly. Some of the dim sum were dry and hard which made one suspect if they were leftovers from previous day. The other dishes were such ordinary fare and very obviously cooked at start of day in a big pot which when served at dinner, were mushy and oily.

The offerings in the menu was a hodge podge of local, Asian and Western, which might be an attempt at satisfying different tastes but with dismal results.

At groupon voucher price of $19.80 for the buffet, the meal was not justified. Paying the full price of $39 for the pathetic spread of substandard food would have been an outright ripoff.
