HKYK Seafood Hot Pot Restaurant4260 No. 3 Road, Richmond
Dimsum any1?
Submitted Saturday, January 10, 2009 - 9:08pm [Dine in]

This is convieniently located between Parker Place and Aberdeen Centre. I like going to eat dim sum here after two pm. because it tends to be much more quiter, and you can enjoy your social meal with ease, and not have to feel the occasional rush of adreniline, that you get off the noisy buzz from conversations of other parties. I personally love the duck toungues in oyster sauce, as it tastes very good and as is tenderness. However, I have not been here for their hot pot in a very long time, so I do not know if it has improved. The service is great during the quiet times, or else don't bother, because it is much harder to get a waiter/waitresses attention during the afternoon tea-time hours; usually around 12. To conclude I will be returning soon.

One of better hot pot places in Richmond!
Submitted Saturday, January 10, 2009 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

This is for sure one of the better hot pot resturants in Richmond. The food is outstanding as it tends to be fresher then other rival hot pot resturants, such as Tung Kee, just a stone throw away. Pop is cheap $1 for two cans as mentioned in other reviews. My favourite side-dish is the fried fish skin, which could use a bit more seasoning, if they even put any in. There are many soup bases to choose from satay, spicy, plain broth etc. Usuaally it is very easy to flag down a waiter, because of the size of the place. So I would have to say that service is better than other AYCE places. Although, on some nights, you can and will get some attitude from some of the waitresses as it can be very stressful to deal with so many demanding customeres at once!. This resturant is good value for the freshness of the food and how quickly it arrives at your table. The ambiance is usually very noisy, so this place would be great for hosting parties at. I favour the tables because, if I remember right, they're made of granite, which adds a beautiful touch to your dining expirience.

Deathly Quiet Resturant
Submitted Friday, January 9, 2009 - 10:27pm [Dine in]

It was a cold snowy night, and me and a friend of mine decided to try this place out, because we were tired of eating in the food court. We were greeted right away, and were served a pot of tea in a tray. There were only 3 groups including our table that visited that night. Both of us were looking for something on the cheaper side, so both of us ended up ordering the Taiwanese Beef Noodles. The dish itself was very good. My friend slurped it all up within ten minutes! However, our orders took over half an hour to be brought to the table. When we finished, we were surprisingly charged for the tea. ($2.25 per person!) A few days later, I had cravings for their beef noodles again and returned. This time we told the waiter that we did not want the tea. The owner came scrambling over complaining at us about not wanting the tea. She also said that the tea was free. So apparently we payed the 2.25 per person for nothing last time. Overall this could be a great place for a date. The place is brightly lit, and is deathly quiet, other dishes are over-priced for the small portion you get, service is only decent. Bad value. I might return if I get another craving for noodles.
P.S. the beef noodles were $6.85 the first visit. The second visit they raised the priced to $7.95!!!

New manager, old staff all fired?
Submitted Friday, January 9, 2009 - 10:11pm [Dine in]

They must have changed managers because before the winter holidays of 2008, I was a regular at this resturant. I came here every week, and recieved two dollars off everything, because the manager recognized me and my party.
I returned recently, and nocticed that all but two of the old staff remain. My favourite waiters were also missing. I nocticed that the new manager used to own a bakery, I remember her because of her tendency to never smile at guests. The food is down-hill. I ordered the Beef tounge hot plate, one of my favourites. with lobster bisque and H.K. style milk tea on the side. First of all, as soon as my hot plate arrived, I nocticed that I couldn't smell the usual flavour the particular dish gave off. Second, the beef toungue looked and tasted like it had been boiled instead of seared. Also, the beef toungues were not seasoned properly, as it would have been, so i had to order extra sauce. The ambience was poor because alot of people ended up screaming over each other. Many of the new waiters and waitresses, were very in expirienced and arrogant, they took forever to respond. Some even brought the wrong orders to our table. At the end of my dinner. The food was heavily over-priced. I will not return again.
