If you are only looking for food, then maybe go to hong kong noodles. There are way better places in the twin cities to go for authentic asian food. Check out the restaurants on university.

The service was horrible. I could have gotten

Tried it a few times and the food is good. The prices are also comparable. Not the best I've had, but not the worst either.

I love Hing Kong Noodles! I have always had food that was hot and delicious!

I recommend the pan fried noodles with beef, egg rolls (they're the best I've ever tasted!) and the fried dumplings. Absolutely fabulous.

I'm not quite sure why these people are all complaining about service?? They clearly have not been to Asia. The service is just fine. I don't go to an authentic asian restaurant and expect four star service. It just doesn't happpen. I'm caucasian and have always been treated very well. No doubt that they are VERY busy and people are standing in the doorway to get a table, sometimes even watching over you. This is very typical in Asia.

It's well worth the wait!

I get it, their focus is on the food -- not the restaurant. But is there a good reason why they consistently forget your orders, or bring them out when everyone around you has finished their meal, mumble under their breath when you ask for water or that forgotten drink or missing entree, yell at you when you don't tip them well because they had HARDLY deserved it in the first place, and charge you for things that never made it out to your table? I think not. I tell everyone to boycott this place and no one believes me until they try it...

Hong Kong Noodle definitely focuses on the food. They have a large menu of authentic-sounding dishes. I've been there a number of times and haven't had anything I disliked. Like Hong Kong itself, they serve dishes in a variety of styles from around Asia, from Korean to Chinese to Thai. I can recommend the Thai Style Seafood Soup and most of the lunch specials.

Their service lacks what their food has. They focus more on making the food and cycling customers through than making the customers happy, though I must admit it seems to work, as we keep going back and they seem to have no lack of customers during lunch hours.

Dedicated free parking around back is a luxury in Stadium Village. During the summer months, they have a makeshift patio outside where you can enjoy the Washington Ave. traffic while enjoying your food.

Pros: Lunch deals, fresh and tasty variety, parking

I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN!

I've been to Hong Kong Noodle several times before, and all those times I've always known that the service there was horrible, but this is the LAST STRAW!

-When being seated, menus are thrown on the table at you.
-Your water cups are brought and just put down in a cluster on one side of the table.
-When your order arrives, it's already been taken to several other tables before they realize who the order belongs to.
-Your meat dish arrives before the bowl of rice that is supposed to come with the dish at the same time
-When you ask for a take home box politely, they mumble something in their language and stammer "SURE"

This is what really threw me off on this visit....

I went with a group of friends (Table for 5). Every time I've been there, we've always been able to pay for our meals individually. I went to pay for my part of the meal first, I CIRCLED my total, pointed it out with the pen and said "I'd like to pay for this one here" handed her my card, and she charged me the whole bill! I asked her if she could cancel the charge and only charge me for my order and she told me she didn't want to do it.

I was so frustrated and angry that she wasn't willing to cancel the charge. A pre-tip charge was also added which came as a surprise to me b/c I had never had that before there.

All I have to say to her is She must be a freakin idiot with no common sense to not know why I circled a price & deaf for not being able to hear what I had asked of her.

Even ordering take out they give rude services. When I stood at the counter waiting to pay for my meal, someone had come in to pick up their order. She threw the take out on the counter knocked the toothpick holder which shot out at me. At least she said "sorry" I guess. But she just slammed his receipt at him.

I'm ASIAN and I get treated like sh!t there. It doesn't matter if you're White or Asian you're going to get treated like sh!t b/c in the end they know you're there for their food and they're going to continue providing horrible services until people decide to start boycotting. And trust me, from now on I am boycotting that place!
But overall, from what I observed every time I've been there, White people have always been served more kindly, probably because they think they can pry more money out of white people.

I am generally a very kind person. I always say thank you's and please and because I have been a waitress before I am always extra patient and kind when dining out at restaurants. But this place just makes your bl00d broil!

-We also never got our tea or our Sriracha Hot Sauce

Cons: Rude waitresses, meals arrive sporadically

i was there for lunch with my co workers and we ask for some water, the waitress came around said some in her language poured our cup and left our table angry. my recomdation to the manager or owner invest on your services and send your employees to Fogo dechao tol earn manner and services from them.

We go regularly and we are white and they are incredibly kind to us, they give my kids free drinks and when they have time they talk to me.
These are my suggestions;
1. If you have been there you may have noticed that they are incredibly busy and yes they screw up the smoothies but in other countries it is okay to screw up and it isn't a horrible crime, just part of the ambiance.
2> If your waitress isn't insanely busy ask them a question that isn't culturally insensitive, it usually leads to a nice on going conversation over the next few visits.
3. Understand the fact that most of the waitresses speak English as a second or third language and that it is easier for them to communicate with customers that speak their first language, so at times it may make you a little less popular.
4. Also be compassionate. In speaking with some of the waitresses I've found out they are raising families on their own, sending money home and working 12-16 hour days in order to do so.
5. They enjoy seeing familiar faces and being that the food is so darn good we have become familiar to them and find the visits very homey and pleasant.

Don't let the tacky pink awning at the entrance or the unassuming location in Stadium Village fool you. Or the disgustingly grimy, well-used laminated menus (just wash your hands after ordering). Hong Kong Noodles has marvelous, authentic, Cantonese-style Chinese dishes crafted from quality ingredients and dished out in generous portions. We're originally from Hong Kong, have been in the Chinese restaurant business for 30 years, and eaten all over from NYC, Frisco, DC, HK, mainland China. Three of us came, saw, and ate for $40 total. The sauteed spinach with garlic was fresh, juicy,and tender with the right amount of garlicky heat...and enough on the plate for probably 4 people. The seafood with chive stalks and bean sprouts was overflowing with yummy fish, large shrimp, creamy scallops and tender squid, balanced by the fresh crispness of the vegetables...enough for 3 people on one plate. The roast duck in our wonton soup was sinfully rich and meaty with the right amount of sweetness and salt. The beef brisket and tendons in our wonton soup were equally delicious and cooked to perfection with beefy goodness. The wonton soup THIN noodles were tasty with good bite. However, the thicker FUN noodles seemed a little dry and texture was off. Also, the pork/shrimp wontons in our soup seemed on the medium-rare side, so we considered asking to have them cooked a little longer...but were enjoying our main dishes so much we forgot about eating them.

The dishes we ate here were delicious and skillfully made with and fresh, quality ingredients (exception would be the thick fun noodles). We ate here because a relative of ours was graduating from the University of Minnesota, but we ended up pleasantly surprised and a few pounds heavier. We will eat again at this place before we fly back to the East Coast.

I agree with most of what people have already been saying. The food is great and decently priced. HOWEVER, the service is some of the worst I have ever experienced. The staff disappears after the food is dropped off. My boyfriend and I really like their mango smoothies but they never get them to us before we're asking for the check. Either dine in and don't expect any extras with your meal (aka: refill on water, any beverages, dessert, attention from waitress, etc.) or order to go like we've started doing and enjoy your meal the same without the hassel of trying to figure out if the waitress should even be tipped. The key with this place is to order TO GO! In, out, and enjoying the food without the miserable service.

PROS: great food, smoothies, Japanese fried rice
CONS: worst service ever

I am a student at the UofM and an afficionado of Asian food. I tried to eat there a few times and ended up leaving after waiting for over a half hour for a seat. They sat multiple Asians before me and my friend, and there was no sign of us ever being seated. Both times we ended up going to Village Wok. Finally we went on a Tuesday night around 11 and the place was empty. We were seated and served: however, after we got our meal we could not get any service. They would not get us water and I couldn't even track them down. The food was some of the best Asian food I have had on campus and the prices were decent with the dinner specials. I liked food enough to go back when it is slow. Oh well, even if the Asians don't like Americans or college students the food is still good.

It makes me feel sad to read the negative comments about this restaurant as I had been lucky enough to have great experiences with HK Noodles. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. Having lived in HK for 7 years, I find their food to be the best cure for my hankering for Cantonese dishes. Their chou fun and Singaporean rice noodles (vermicelli) are THE BEST! They accommodate to my vegetarian request by substituting beef with tofu upon request, which I truly appreciate.

My husband finds that dinner usually tastes better than lunch (could there be a difference in the cooks?)

A little overpriced, maybe, but the food is great.

This place is definitely one of the better Chinese restaurants in the twincities, if it is not the best yet. It offers authentic Cantonese dishes that you will not find in most other Chinese restaurants in the twin cities. For those who craving American style Chinese dishes, HKN might not be the place to go. However, I will not be surprised that you might discover some new dishes you like if you are open mind. It has become my favour Chinese restaurant in the twincities. Of course I am Chinese.

In terms of food, they fare OK. Prices of foods there are expensive (shrimp fried rice costs 14 bucks) and their service is terrible. Once I forgot to leave a few bucks on the table when an old chinese waitress came to me (who never smiles unless if you're born with "slanted eyes") shouting with her index finger pointing at me saying "Hey, no tips a?" I felt humiliated as everybody in the restaurant had their eyes on me. I have ever since never stepped back into the restaurant ever again. Now I heard they charge tips on customers' bills. So think twice before going there. Dont expect to get great service if your eyes are not slanted. You can try slanting your eyes to get great service from them but it doesnt help if youre brown/black (like me)

Pros: so-so food

Cons: terrible service

The food is the best Chinese food I've ever had at a restaurant in the Twin Cities. It is catered to asian tastes--you will not be tasting the sweet-n-sour you get from other reataturants (i.e. Pei Wei). Every dish has its own taste, you can share plates and everything will not end up tasting the same (i.e. The Village Wok). If you are used to and prefer the asian tastes (or simply every dish covered in grease) from big chain places, then you might think their food is bad. There are so many asian diners because HKN serves real asian food. The service is not terrific, but not at all bad--they take your order, bring you your order, give you the check, the end (it's not what many Americans are used to, but I think it unfair to say it is terrible). It's not a discrimination thing, I'd say a language barrier and partly cultural. I'm asian and I don't care for outstanding service (i.e. do you enjoy the food?/can I get you something? every 5 minutes), as long as it is not bad; good service is timely service with refills on drinks when you need it. The place is small (smaller than a regular fast-food dining area) and could probably get more service if it expanded, but it also creates an atmosphere regulars like.

The portions are HUGE!!! For groups of 6-8, you really only need 5 different dishes and a bowl of rice to fill everyone up and have a doggie bag or two. The plates average $10 and individual meals around $7. The Jumbo Shrimp w/ Pecans is the best shrimp dish (not stir-fried) I've ever had. Unless you really care about great service beyond the necessity, HKN is the place to dine for great Chinese/Cantonese food that will fill up your belly and your taste buds.

So I've been to this place a couple times now and the food is decent; however, every single time I go they try to make me upgrade my meal to a larger portion. Dear lord how much do they think a 150 pound man can eat? The first time this happened I did order the larger version and to be honest it had to be the same size. On top of that everything people say about the service is true, they serve family and friends first.

Kids were out of school, so my wife decided it would be nice for the family to have luch together. We were seated right away...got lucky I guess...and given a bowl of soup. It got worse after that. It took the waitress about 15 to get back to us to take our order. Waited... waited... waited.. waited.. waited... after an half and hour..STILL no food. Frustrated and hungry, I stood up and kissed my family goodbye and told them I had to get back to work and if they could drop off my food on their way home. When they finally did drop off my food, the kung pao chicken lunch special I ordered was very blah...Basically, it was just sweet and sour sauce which they added hot pepper to.

I will NEVER EVER go back there and have told family members and friends to avoid the place at all costs. If you want Chinese go to the Wok...only reason why they have lines at this place is because the restaurant is so small.

Pros: Near the U of MN

If you want a lot of decent food for cheap, you won't find a better deal than their lunch specials. You get tea (if you eat in), soup, a large eggroll, rice, and a main dish for around 5 dollars. I don't recommend going on a Tuesday, the soup they serve on Tuesdays is terrible. Thursdays usually have good soup though.
Yeah, the service isn't so hot, but it's decent for what you pay.

Food, one of the best in twin cities, B+. Customer Service, can I give G? Please do not visit this place for any service. After my couple of visit, I ONLY go there for FOOD. I don't know if it is different race or anything. I notice very similar services. Only time I found their Customer Service along C grade is if you know how to speak their language. Also, I found that they are very friendly with my friends from Laos and Thailand because my friends always FLIRT with them. So overall I will write these points.
* It is not sure that you always get the food what you order.
* It is not guarantee that you can order whatever is at the menu.
* There is NO LEMON or LIME
* Be careful when you pour tea otherwise you might flooded your table
* BE PATIENCE
* DON'T FORGET TO SMILE
* If you are not getting your food on time, make sure your food is getting ready
* Don't make mistake to ask them again and again
* Don't expect them to be friend
* Remember you are there not to make a friend but try to stop yourself from make a enemy
* I can go on and on

I don't know if it is different race or anything. I notice very similar services. Only time I found their Customer Service along C grade is if you know how to speak their language. Also, I found that they are very friendly with my friends from Laos and Thailand because my friends always FLIRT with them. So overall I will write these points.
* It is not sure that you always get the food what you order.
* It is not guarantee that you can order whatever is at the menu.
* There is NO LEMON or LIME
* Be careful when you pour tea otherwise you might flooded your table
* BE PATIENCE
* DON'T FORGET TO SMILE
* If you are not getting your food on time, make sure your food is getting ready
* Don't make mistake to ask them again and again
* Don't expect them to be friend
* Remember you are there not to make a friend but try to stop yourself from make a enemy
* I can go on and on

Pros: Food and Parking

Cons: ZERO Customer Service

...this last comment was one of the most asinine things I've ever heard. Do two wrongs make a right? I think not. Can't wait to try the restaurant though, I've heard nothing but good things about the food here. Hopefully we won't experience the great food a side of racism.

It's about time that there is a place that is just for Asians by Asians. I mean, my god, stop complaining about being treated unfairly and of feeling unwelcomed. Get used to it. Non-whites have had to put up with it so one Asian restaurant isn't going to k ill you. Then again, it might. hahah

Pros: ASIAN ATMOSPHERE

.

I've heard a few stories from close(white) friends about going in and being refused a seat, even though many were available and other asian people behind my friends were seated no problem. Also I've witnessed some people being seated but not served for quite some time, until eventually they got up and left. However, when I go to this restaurant with my Korean-American girlfriend, the service and food are incredible. The Kimchee rocks, and the dinner special with the eggroll are great deals (I recommend the Kung Pow Seafood). They somehow have our food done in ten minutes, and it is delicious. We go quite frequently even though they are obviously very racsist. Bring an asian friend and enjoy!

Pros: Quick food, Large portions, Best Chinese on Campus

Cons: Rascist Practices, Good luck getting served if you're white.

It was last week, my friend and I went to HK noodles and the place was packed with people so we ordered a takeout and went home. The food was horrible, it was uncooked especially the onion, the beef feels like a chewing gum, it was really bad. Even if we don?t have money we ordered pizza.

Alright, so my friends and I were hungry last friday night, so we decided to eat at Hong Kong Noodles. I had never been there before, but when I walked in, it looked pretty nice and the food cooking smelled good. Anyways, we get a table quickly (for about 6-7 of us), however once the waitress took our orders, the food took forever to come to us. This was somewhat annoying, especially because it wasn't busy at all. In fact, there were other people that had gotten there after us and already had their food brought to them promptly. Our waitress seemed cranky and NEVER asked how we were or if there was anything she could get us. The good thing I will say about the place is that the food tasted pretty good. So the time was about 1:00AM and it was clear that they were preparing to close, so we finished our food and got ready to leave in a decent manner. One woman in my group got up to use the restroom, but the cranky waitress shook her head at her and said, "NO!" I couldn't believe they wouldn't let a customer use the restroom. Even though they were preparing to close up, that is no excuse and just plain wrong! Then, when we went to pay, they over charged us. For example, my meal (according to the menu) should have cost about $8.00 after tax, but I was charged $14.00 and given no recept. We were all taken advantage of; I felt robbed. Bottom line, if you are White or are a college student, don't go to Hong Kong Noodles because you will probably be treated poorly.
I should be fair to note that there could have been multiple reasons for my poor experience, such as the fact that it was around closing time, or maybe they have a grudge against college students, or maybe our waitress was having a bad day, BUT all of this is no excuse and it was wrong and unprofessional for them to treat us the way they did.

Hong Kong Noodles versus The Village Wok.
Hong Kond Noodles wins easily, leaving The Vilalge Wok bruised and battered in the corner. The place is always packed, so I usually always get takeout. I like going to Chinese restaurants where a majority of the customers are of Asian heritage. You know you will be getting some quality, authentic dishes.

The only reason why I went to this restaurant was because my friends told me about the horrible customer service it has, and I just wanted to really check it out to see whether it is true or not. The result was yes, it was the first restaurant I have ever been to that has such a bad customer service, not intentionally but just naturally bad. My server completely ignored us and would not come back and check on us. Also, the food was not that good compared to other Asian restaurants. I really don't know why people still go there, is it because of the bad treatment experience they want to get or is it because of the food? Because if it is for the food, trust me, there are more Asian restaurants in this city that are way better. I genuinely would not recommend this restaurant to any one. Check out other Asian restaurants in this city, you will find it much satisfying than Hong Kong noodle.

Always a bit packed in this little joint so I suggest ordering take out. The food is wonderful and the prices are good. Seriously, the U of M campus has three of the best asian restaurants in Mpls. Parking can be tough here and that's my only negative. Actually, I wish there were more rice noodle dishes!

With its small seating area don't bring too many friends but do bring an empty stomach because the lunch portions are a great value including egg roll and soup. The menu is so extensive it will take you a while to get through... pick on and pick the next on your second visit because you should be coming back. Our pickup order was ready in 5 minutes!!! Food seemed good quality and great quantity.

Hong Kong noodle has always been one of my husband and my favorite places to eat. My husband is half Chinese and so he loves it when we can get some "authentic" Chinese cuisine. Its a little eatery in the middle of a college community so what can you expect for ambience? Its busy and fast paced at times, but filled with an ecletic mix of students, instructors and couples. They have plenty of "exotic" dishes but also many that are familiary to the mainstream. The seafood hotpot is to die for and the Beef Chow Fun w/black bean sauce is excellent! The service is not as cordial as some may be accustomed to, but the people are all friendly, and try their best to accomodate any requests. The hours are good too!

This place is my favorite chinese restaurant. Almost everything on their menu is good. Love the soups, the platters, and more! Don't be afraid to try something new at Hong Kong Noodle, most likely it will be tasty and good experience for you! Try something authentic chinese, and they are not the popular 'sweet and sour chicken, sesame chicken, etc'. Have fun!
The service is ok, and the place is average, it's always packed there, they need a bigger place.

Pros: food

Cons: crowed

Authentic food at reasonable prices, if you know what to look for. Easily the best place on campus.

Best deal: look for the plate special with roast duck, chicken, and pork with chinese vegetables-- it's a lot of food for $7.

Recommended: fish with Chinese vegetables, roast duck or chicken, Chinese broccoli, any kind of jook (porridge). And of course, the pearl milk tea.

Like most places in MN, they unfortunately list some Chinese-American fare, but if you stay away from that you should be fine. If that's the kind of you're looking for, then you don't need to be at a place as good as this.

Over the past few years I have been going to Hong Kong Noodles off and on. Recently I went, and it's changed big time. The food is more greaser than ever and service is getting slower each year. The servers are nice though. The noodle soups are good, but have gone to less quality taste. If you go during lunch time it's often crowded and the place is small.

After 4 years of trying out the various chinese restaurants in the Twin Cities, I've come to the conclusion that HK Noodles serves consistently the most authentic Cantonese cuisine! It's just a pity they occupy such a small location.
