HONG KONG serves lip-smacking Chinese delicaciesMarch 12, 2013
Hong Kong is one of the few decent food outlets where you can gorge on lip-smacking Chinese delicacies without burning a hole in your pocket. 188/9, Prince Anwar Shah Road should be your ultimate destination if you are famished and have limited money in your pocket. It will not be wrong to call Hong Kong one of the oldest restaurants in Kolkata. I remember eating here as a child with my parents. Unfortunately, their standard has deteriorated, and what is retained is simply their delicious food. Their ambience is fin,e but what irks me now is their poor hygiene. Their plates, cutlery and bowls are not properly cleaned and some of the water glasses have developed cracks.
The waiters become confused if a lot of customers drop in. They often confuse your order with someone else’s order. But if you ignore these factors, then Hong Kong is a nice and affordable eatery. Just a few months back, I dined here with my friends. We ordered Prawn wafers, Hong Kong Special hakka noodles, Chicken and Prawn Fried Rice, Fried chilli Chicken, Fried Spring Chicken and Szechuan Fish. Having stuffed ourselves with these delicacies, we ordered some delectable Pistachio ice cream, which melted in our mouths.
I think Hong Kong’s standard has deteriorated due to the lackadaisical attitude of the staff. It seems they no longer bother to augment the decor and refurbish the interior by adding some more tables and chairs for their guests. They don’t realize when plates and cutleries are not washed people will think twice before eating in that restaurant again. I used to be a regular customer. But, now their shabby ambience puts me off. Till date, they have maintained their food quality, but God knows how long they’ll be able to do so. Let’s wait and hope things turn out in the favour of all Kolkata foodies!
