Old Hong Kong Kitchen is usually crowded during the weekends though the prices are not cheap, so do call up to make a reservation first. Service was quite good for my few visits except the waiting time for the food was a bit long so have to be more patient especially during peak hours.
Overall the food quality was quite good, between average to slightly above average. This place is more suitable for family dining, not suitable for couples as it's quite noisy when the crowd starts. Prices for their food and dim sum are quite steep, I prefer to pay such prices for hotel ambience. As the food was quite good here, i will still come back once a while.
I went to this restaurant with my wife, mother-in-law and sister. We were seating at a table of 4. initially i didn't notice anything wrong but after a while, my wife started to inform me 1 termite crawling right across her table. I saw it and kill it with my finger but i began to notice more and more terminte everywhere and i even took a photo of the table with termites eggs. There's spider web on the wooden wall as well.
So we told the waiter about it and requested to change the table. The waiter says that we can change table but after changing the table, the waiter didn't even bother to clean the "infected" table.
As for the food, overall was good but the Peking Duck that we ordered, it indicated half a duck and I also got reassurance from the floor manager that it's half the duck. But after we got serve, the amount of meat is at most the amount of a drumstick. I felt cheated and the floor manager admitted tat they only serve portion of it.
OVerall, I won't recommend and I won't go to any of the Lao Hong Kong branches. It's really disgusting.
Used one of the Groupons for "Triple Delight 1/2 Peking Roast Duck". All I got was the skin, served with the small "pancakes" that you wrap a piece of skin with some small veggie sticks and dip in hoisin sauce. Want meat? Extra $10!!! And the $10 meat extra (crispy fried) was tasty but greasy and overpriced. Also ordered carrot cake to accompany, but never came. Asked about it... "sorry" but charged me anyway. What food you get is wonderful - that's way 4/5 stars for food. Service is awful and attitude towards Groupon is simply terrible. What a ripoff.
I will remember now not to buy Groupon for this place. Weekend dim sum is excellent, so I may still go there for that, although Crystal Jade at Zhongshan Mall is giving them a run for their money. Also good and nicer atmosphere.
I would rate the food 4 out of 10 & for that price I would expect the taste to be on par with Crystal Jade or Taste Paradise. The name Old Hong Kong is really misleading as it is too far from the food we tasted in Hong Kong. We spent $58 (2 pax) for 7 dim sum dishes & not a single dish is passable, but the service is very good. Still, VERY VERY disappointed with the food : (

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
