    Hong Kong House is a real pleasure. I have ordered and dined in on numerous occasions and it is safe to say that the staff, who are always polite and competent, will provide you with a good meal. Favorite dishes on mine start our with the pot stickers. These jumbo dumplings of delight are more than a meal on their own if you ask for two orders. Their crab rangoons are some of the best I've had. The only downside is that they don't offer the super sweet orange syrup with them. The fried rice at HKH is especially tasty. You can believe it's good when their Plain fried rice is better than most Chinese kitchens meat loaded offerings. On the downside they have a couple dishes (Orange Beef, Fried Duck) that are a little too fatty or over-fried. Therefore I recommend finding what you do like and sticking with it. Oh, and it would be nice if they threw in some fortune cookies on deliveries.

    So my quick tip said "I'll let you know" and now I will. I went here because of all of the very good reviews and I have to say it was just okay. The food was relatively bland and uneventful. I guess for a quick bite it would be fine if you stuck to something like fried rice but other than that . . . The good news is that the portions were huge and the prices inexpensive and the woman who waited on us was very friendly. However, being a bit spoiled on places like Ben Pao puts me in a bad spot as that is/was the best Chinese food in the world.

    I live in Portage Park and am that restaurant about once every two weeks. It isn't fancy at all. The food is great. I order orange chicken (easy sauce), egg foo yung (easy sauce). The crab ragoon is excellent. They make their own hot mustard. The service is great and the food is always hot. You can't go wrong for the amount of food at the price. Do not judge a book by its cover.

    I've never been here so I can't speak to the hole-in-the-wall ambiance of the place, but I can say that the food is quite good, plentiful and well priced. We ordered from this place the week we moved in here, and were impressed, but over the last year we've tried a lot of the other Chinese restaurants which deliver to our neighborhood and so haven't had the chance to really explore the menu as much as we would have liked. But tonight I had a taste for Chinese and we went back to the original favorite, and were not disappointed. The crab rangoon is excellent, very crisp and tasty with a generous amount of fish mixed into the cream cheese. (Be sure to remind them to send hot mustard sauce if you like it because they don't always pack any.) Egg foo young from HKH doesn't disappoint either. But for me, the star of tonight's meal was the almond pressed duck. I haven't eaten pressed duck in ages and this was everything I'd hoped for. It was moist, tender and flavorful, served on a bed of chopped veggies. I'm more used to a bed of shredded lettuce and tend to prefer it that way, but this was just fine. Delivery was fast and everything was exactly as ordered. I have no complaints. It's not the best Chinese ever but it's darn good and they'll bring it to us. There's no bad there.

    Ordered the general tso's chicken lunch special for $6.50. It came with a soda, egg roll, and large portion of chicken fried rice- very good deal! I also ordered a small hot and sour soup - very big container actually, the soup itself was bland. Solid Chinese food (I'm Asian and have had my fair share of all kinds of Asian cuisine). The chicken was battered and didn't get soggy under the sauce. A few bits of broccoli. Very large portion! The flavor itself was ok, a bit better than average. The food was cooked fresh and packed in less than 10 minutes. Good service. I'd most likely order from here again if I'm in the mood for decent Chinese food, great that's it's walking distance! Not the most authentic Chinese food but for a neighborhood fix it'll do fine.

    This family joint is becoming a weekly pilgrimage for lunch. This small spot, is quiet, and the staff is super friendly. They are always on top of refilling your beverage. They have a great selection of lunch specials- that are fresh, hot, filling, and run about $8 all in. You get a big plate of food, egg roll, and a coke for that. I like my food as spicy as you can make it- they never get to where I like, but they always bring me some fresh chilli peppers to put on as much as I want. Stop by for lunch, and if you leave hungry- you did something wrong!

    Hole in the wall is the most correct descriptor. It was still winter in Chicago when I first checked them out and it was about 40 degrees (F) outside. The chill of the outdoors had permeated the double door system meant to keep the weather out. This all left a chilling feeling inside the dining room. It was just cozy enough (with my coat on) to allow for enjoyment of my food. If you aren't sure what to get, read reviews! I kind of went overboard. Lunch special of General Tso's chicken, which I requested spicy as well as the fried rice. Egg rolls were decent and I got an order of fried potstickers which were good as well. Service was great despite the run-down look of the place. Like a crappy tasting fortune cookie, sometimes an inspiring fortune is found within. When the restaurant boxes your dine-in food for you, I find this service fucking brilliant and tip accordingly. Cheers.

    I chose this place because of the reviews here on Yelp, but I was quite disappointed. The food was just okay, not great. I ordered the General Tso's chicken, and it came with chicken fried rice. I travel a lot and I eat Chinese food in every state that I go to. This place would have to be at the bottom of the list. The meat was not white meat from a chicken breast, as stated in an earlier review, but dark meat. The rice had way too much pepper, and just wasn't right. However, the service was impeccable. I ordered as delivery and received the food really fast, and the delivery driver was very nice. I wish I could write more nice things about this place, but I cannot.

    My favorite for fast, tasty, and convenience. There rice is always on point, I usually get a veggie fried rice which is always made fresh and is nice and soft. The eggrolls are the best. The Lo-mein is great, u get some free eggrolls or chicken wings with orders of over 25 dollars I believe and I usually get the chicken wings which I love but my wife ain't crazy about. The delivery is very fast, I never had a problem with my order. The dining area is not so inviting so I always carryout or get delivery. I ordered almost 50 dollars worth of food once and I asked for 2 little things of hot sauce he charged me 25 cents for one and gave me one free. REALLY! So not so costumer friendly but really enjoy the food.

    Though I finally figured under-cooked Chinese beef does not get along well with my stomach, I must say that 1. The place looks good 2. The service was blazing fast 3. No customer friendly bullshit, like constantly asking if I need anything else 4. Boxed my leftovers for me 5. The check arrived promptly I was the only customer when I came, nevertheless I think the service was great.

    Glad we went out of our way. The portions were wonderful and the price insanely reasonable. We dined in choose 2 lunch specials and a few extras and were very satisfied! Dine in or carry out. It's worth it.

    I think they changed owners, or distributors. The food has taken a nose dive. Pretty sad.

    Was kinda scared at first, but this place is surprisingly clean and the staff is friendly and easy to understand on the phone. They have a classic huge Chinese menu and the style is classic "american Chinese" food. Loved the fried chicken and egg foo young. Over all pretty standard. Might need to add a little salt, but I look forward to trying the peking duck!

    Crab ragoons are good. Their food is not bad actually, but if you decide to stay there, be prepared for the worst service ever. They prefer that you do not stay there and give you dirty looks till you leave.

    This is a lovely little Chinese restaurant. I dined in today with my boyfriend and we were both completely satisfied with our experience. We spent only $20 and have leftovers for days. The food took 10 minutes to arrive at our table after ordering and the portions were very large (see photo I uploaded). The only thing that wasn't a completely 5 star experience was the sesame chicken sauce. It was a little bland. Simple dining experience. 5 stars.

    I just loves this place! I am very picky about chinese food and the only place I liked so far in the city, is a restaurante by Belmont and Cicero! But this week, I went to the mechanic to change the oil in my car, and they were gonna take a while so I went to eat. I ordered shrimp with vegetables and fried rice and it came with a delicious roll! For just 6,50 i got a lot of food! I just loved the taste of everything! Highly recommend it!! I dont know about delivery service as everybody is complaining because I dont live in the area! And they treat me really good! People need to know that in this country we are from different countries and they are chinese, so they are not as friendly as some other country but that doesnt mean they are rude! Is the way they are!

  • Laura B.

    The delivery was fast, the prices weren't bad but the food wasn't that good. Actually, the crab rangoon was delicious! I'm so picky about it and was impressed with it. We also ordered the egg drop soup (it was okay), the orange chicken (mediocre), chicken fried rice (okay, very salty), egg roll (not very good) and mongolian beef (SWIMMING in wayyyyy too many onions. WHERE'S THE BEEF???).

  • Lauren H.

    Maybe they're having an off day.. But I just ordered pick up. And their beef and broccoli sucks doesn't even taste like beef and broccoli the sauce is water and the beef is gray. and so does their pork fried rice. My boyfriend liked his orange chicken

  • Laura B.

    This was actually some of the best Chinese we had in the area (still not great but better than we've had), but they screwed us on delivery enough times that we were fed up. We live less than 2 miles from them right off of CIcero, and the last time they said they had a new delivery driver who couldn't find us. We called after our food didn't come for an hour and 15 minutes, and they said the person was out driving and would be right there with it. When we called after another 20 minutes had gone by, they explained that the driver was lost and would be calling us for directions. Seriously....you head down Cicero and make a left onto our street - it's not rocket science. We finally told them we didn't want our food anymore - who wants Chinese food that's been sitting in someone's car for an hour? - they didn't even apologize, which was pretty disappointing since we had been ordering from them regularly since we moved into the neighborhood.

    This place was a total surprise for me. Its one of those "dont' judge a book by its cover" type of places. It looks old and dingy but their food is sooo good. My fav is their fried calamari...oh its so delicious, and their crab rangoon is the shiet! So far everything I've tried from this place is good, the portions are generous and the price is not bad either. Overall a great neighborhood spot to get some chinese food. Check it out for yourself!

    The food here is delicious and very quick to get served. The establishment is not the best, but not the worst in the world either. The fried rice and sweet and sour chicken are some of the best I've ever eaten.

  • Sean G.

    This is the only Chinese food I will order as long as I live anywhere around it. I'm sure everybody has their own Chinese food horror story but this place is great. I usually get the Beef and broccoli and egg roles and both are delicious. The egg roles are nice and hearty. They even have vegetable egg roles (NOT just spring rolls called vegetable egg rolls) for those that like them. They deliver super fast and are very friendly. I don't order from anywhere else.

    I'm not from the neighborhood at all. When a friend of mine told me she had to go to Six Corners to meet a coworker to pick up things for her job and asked me to tag along. I jumped at the chance to get out of the house and do something that day. We planned on walking around the Six Corners shopping district and we did. We also paid our sincere respects to the magnificent "Portage Theater" which we previously visited many times. Getting hungry and me wanting some Chinese, we decided to eat here. The place looks....like it has seen better days. However, I don't care about decor at all. I actually like places like this because it allows you to realize what really is important is the food and the service. Both were excellent. I ordered a General Tso's chicken combo with a strawberry smoothie and my friend got a banana smoothie. My plate was huge and I was given a good amount of food for what I paid. They even have options to take it easy on the sauce or not use MSG. The lady who served me was also incredibly friendly and nice. She took my order quickly and my food came in 5-7minutes. I found it funny because I could of sworn she was arguing with other workers in Mandarin or Cantonese, but I've heard that depending on how you say a word it has a different force. Maybe that was it. even then I was chuckling while eating my food. Anyway it was everything I expected and if I'm ever in the neighborhood again(Portage please come back!), I'll definitely eat here again.

    I'm only reviewing the take out service. We've been hunting for a local chinese joint since moving to Old Irving last year. We tried a few places and sometimes just went to the old hood. But the review for Hong Kong House were promising. We ordered the eggrolls, chicken fried rice and sweet and sour chicken. The service was fast (15 minutes!) and the food was really good. The chicken was from tender moist piece of chicken breast. Very good quality. I'm not a huge fried rice guy - but I would highly recommend you get at least one order of this from them.. Also - they respected our request for no MSG - always a plus. From the look of it, I wouldn't recommend eating there - it's very greasy spoon in there. I saw a sign for parking in back, but given the cross streets, I literally have no idea how I would get to it..

  • Stephen D.

    Friendly staff, fantastic food! I ordered the General Tso's Chicken, and it was the best General Tso's I've ever had. The chicken was cooked perfectly, and the sauce... I can't say enough about the sauce. Not too sweet, not too spicy, and you could actually taste and SEE the dried chiles they used. The crab rangoons were fantastic, too. My girlfriend ordered the seafood fried rice and thought it was amazing too. I had no idea such a great Chinese takeout place was right next to my house and I will be returning.

  • John C.

    Super fast and tasty food. The service is friendly and appreciative. Food is great, albeit salty, and the fried rice and singapore noodles a bit oily. However both are excellent! The combo fried rice has generous chunks of pork, chicken,beef, and shrimps or whatever, yum. Singapore noodles and seasame chicken are staples i always order at chinese food places, and Hong Kong's are great. I have had their smoothies also, only thing that would make them better is if they had the tapioca balls. Have dined in and picked up. Cant comment on the delivery yet. If you like this place, Jess Cafe a bit farther West is also worth checking out.

  • Suzy C.

    This restaurant is a little hidden gem in the old Irving area. Is it the BEST I've had? No, it's not, but for a local place that delivers, it really is surprisingly delicious! Their mushu pork is delicious every single time. Also, their take out menu has some coupons for free appetizers. If you order $20 or more, you can get free 6 pc. chicken wings. The chicken is AWESOME! It is one of the best chickens.. it's battered and deep fried, so it's not a buffalo wing style, it's a straight fried chicken style. It is tasty with the perfect crunch. It's amazing that one of the best fried chickens come from a chinese restaurant! If you live in the area or walk in the area, give this place a try. I order my food without the MSG or extra salt and they are very accommodating.

  • Ariana M.

    O.k. so I am very particular about where I eat and this is one of the best! I absolutely love their crab rangoon mmm mm mmm! They literally have the CRAB filling unlike some places that simply smear the filling like it's free LOL! I always buy the chicken fried rice with vegetables extra spicy yeah buddy! Oh and no kidding the delivery is sometimes freaky fast.

  • Megan B.

    I ate here a few times when I first moved to the area and have since found better places. The egg drop soup was good but the entrees we got were just typical and not very fresh. Nothing stood out except the soup and if I go to a chinese place it wouldn't be for egg drop soup. Unless maybe I was sick, make sure they put the green onions in there. If you want good crab rangoons go to Leung's on Irving, way better. And my mom said this place was "gross" when we ordered delivery.

    HKH is a great little dingy spot for carry out or delivery. There obviously are so many better Chinese food places to dine which provide the commotion and hustle one would expect at a Chinese restaurant. HKH is the antithesis of that experience. It is slow and empty and makes you wonder whether you should check out another place as soon as you walk in. The owners are often sitting in the dining room and talking or watching tv while prepping vegetables for their dishes. I still don't understand how they turn a profit, of the dozens of times I have carried out from HKH this place has never had customers. Getting the food is another story. After ordering (we have tried pretty much the entire menu), you can hear the wok getting going and food being prepared fresh (a good thing about a slow/quiet restaurant). The food is ready incredibly fast and the prices are dirt cheap. If you spend over a certain amount they toss in chicken wings as well. Quantities are plentiful but go for the extra dish so they you can get the free chicken wings. They are better than most fried chicken joints that specialize in it. My fav 3 are the mushoo pork with a side of plum sauce (solid dish, definitely has been a mainstay in our tifecta orders), mapo tofu (classic taste with a generous portion of tofu), and any chicken dish (we like the sesame or the general). Add on the 6 fried chickens and you have a feast. Great little discovery in my hood. Awesome speed in delivery service as well. If lethargic and wanting to veg by the tv. Order in from HKH and eat like a king in your underwear. No one will judge you.

    So, I'm a BIG fan of crab rangoons. My favorite place to get them is this little hole-in-the-wall called Darien Chop Suey in Darien, IL. Darien is quite far away from where I live, though, and I've found all of the chinese food restaurants in my immediate neighborhood (such as Wong's and Leung's) to be sorely lacking. That is, until I found Hong Kong House. I live literally two blocks away from it, and I drive past it ALL THE TIME. A friend of mine said it was a dump, so I never bothered to go in. I have a hard time experimenting with chinese food because it tends to be sort of pricey, and there's a big margin for error, so if I don't like it I'm kind of screwed. Nevertheless, I was feeling bold one day, and called up. Not only do they deliver, but they accept credit cards as well. +2 for HKH. Not 20 minutes later my food was delivered by a courteous older gentleman, and 5 minutes after that I was in the middle of a food-gasm. The beef chop suey and crab rangoons were BETTER than Darien Chop Suey! I have since been DELIGHTED that there's such a great food find so close to my house, and have been demanding that friends and family eat there as well. I want them to do well, so that they never leave, but I am sure most chinese food afficionados would like it, too! Especially those of you who like Wong's - you don't know what you're missing. Enjoy! An update, on 1-27-09: Darien Chop Suey changed owners and now their food tastes like cardboard, so forget everything I said about them. Hong Kong is now officially the best Chinese food in the city, in my humble opinion!

    I was really surprised that we liked this place. We've lived in PP for about a year and never really reconciled ourselves to chop suey instead of Thai food. However, we tried this hole in the wall and found it to be very good! The chicken broccoli was better than I have had from the local competitors, the crab rangoons were good, and the egg roll was fine. All in all, this place seems to be some of the better Chinese in PP. We still miss good Thai though . . .

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
