We were in York on Christmas Eve and almost walked past this place as it is on a quiet side street that not that many people seem to visit, and the frontage of the restaurant is very narrow and unassuming. You need to go looking for this place! The restaurant had only a couple of people in when we arrived,... More

Been here a few times, always great dim sum and friendly service, don't know why more places in York don't offer any dim sum as here seems to have the monopoly!

Spent the day visiting York with my brother for my birthday. Originally looked for a Chinese buffet but couldn't find one so we came here. Love the quirkiness of the place. Menu was very authentic. I got special fried noodles and prawn toast. My brother got crispy prawns then chili prawns and rice. This was so tasty. Cooked to perfection.... More

Went here on a very busy Saturday night. We hadn’t booked a table but got seated easily enough around 9pm. The tables were a little crammed in and unfortunately a couple of drunk blokes sat near us – swearing and generally misbehaving. The staff in the restaurant did nothing except keep supplying them with more bottles of wine. Suffice to... More

Popped in this restaurant for the early bird menu, it was empty as we walked in but within half an hour it was packed out with people unable to find a table, Interestingly 80% of the customers appeared to be from the far East, something I noted as a compliment to the restaurant because it makes me believe they serve...

Lovely little gem in the centre of York. I used to order takeaways from here few years ago and were delicious but when moving they no longer delivered. Me and my partner fancied eating out for a Chinese and i suddenly remembered this gem in town instead of a takeaway at home. I am so glad I did the food... More

We sat in the restaurant. The food was good, I especially loved the Tom Yam Thai Soup (veg)-something which I had been struggling to find in York. However, I struggled to find a vegetarian main that sounded appealing and when I did, it felt like takeaway worthy food. The lone waitress was awkwardly standing around which felt odd and left...

Located in the heart of the city, just minutes away from iconic landmarks including York Minster and The Shambles, Hong Kong Chop House serves arguably the most authentic Chinese cuisine in York.

The restaurant is widely recognised for a range of delicious and authentic Chinese cuisine at wonderfully reasonable prices. Specialising in several Chinese cuisines including Cantonese, Sichuan and Northeast, we aim to present the true authentic Chinese cooking to our customers. In 2014, 2015 & 2016 we have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

Our comprehensive A la carte menu are specifically designed to give you the widest experience of traditional Chinese cuisine. You will recognise not only the old favourites like Aromatic Crispy Duck, Satay, Black Bean and Sweet and Sour, but also some true authentic food which is very common in China.
