We went to HKYK a couple of weeks ago and let's just say I got got a stomachache that night. The last time I was there was more than 5 years ago and it was decent, but this time with 3 other friends was very disturbing.
First of all, the table was sticky. Then we examined the tea cups and there were yellow and brown dried crusts from incomplete dishwashing on 2 cups, 1 spoon, and 2 bowls (which we asked to be exchanged). I should have taken this as the clue to leave, but being from Asia, where we are accustomed to rinsing out own dishes and cutlery before eating at any restaurant anyways, I shrugged to my friends and thought it was no big deal. I was wrong.
Where do I begin with the things that were wrong? I'll make it easier to read in list form:
-as the servers lifted and retrieved our finished plates, they let the wet drippings from the plates drip through the air onto our own plates
-i asked for a pencil to fill in my all-u-can-eat form and the server dropped a wooden pencil's sharpened lead end into my plate of uncooked beef balls, no apologies, did not even acknowledge anything out of the ordinary happened
-all-u-can-eat is NOT really all-u-can-eat as we ordered 10 plates of beef slices to share amongst the four of us and they only brought out four plates after much waiting and asking, when I kindly reminded the server that we had ordered 10 plates, his reply was "that's all that is available for now", but we ended up waiting so long that we left
-the men's bathroom had no handsoap, I had to go to women's bathroom to get soap and pass it outside to my guy friend waiting in the hallway
-the fish we ordered was slimy and tasted like it has been dead for a loooong time
-there was a curly short hair in my chili sauce for dipping
-there were massive spider webs decorating the tops of our window sills
Bottom line is this restaurant needs to clean up, did not serve fresh food, and they need to retrain all the staff on food safe.
