The food was amazing especially the goose but what put me off was they didn’t accept reservations and the waiting is quite long and the restaurant was quite packed

I have never not had a great night at Ho Lee Fook. Apart from the food, which is consistently good, the other thing that deserves a mention is the service. The staff are warm and welcoming. Someone is there to greet you at the door...as soon as you arrive and they seem more like wonderful hosts, than waiters. SETTING: There are a lot of fun elements to the décor, starting with the name. The wall of mah-jong tiles caught my eye and you can’t miss the feature wall of waving lucky cats (which made me look up what a group of cats is called – it’s a clowder). Head downstairs, beneath the giant peacock, to the dining area. The lighting is dim, almost dark, which gives it an underground/basement nightclub feel. 
 FOOD:
The menu is modern Chinese. Last night, we had a few favourites and tried a few new dishes. The “Mom’s” pork dumplings and prawn toast are always favourites. As always, the highlight is the Wagyu ribs, a large platter with a big rib bone with wonderfully charred chunks of meat on one side and tender slices of meat laid out on the other side and a green shallot kimchi. Last night we also tried the clams, XO cheung fun noodles and the steamed barramundi. Of these new dishes, the barramundi was the best. It was tender and soft, with a light soy, ginger, shallot flavour. We finished by sharing a couple of desserts. One was a quirky, unusual blend of Horlicks ice cream, honey cornflakes and fresh raspberries which was sort of interesting but odd. The other one was a very fresh and lovely apple granita/sorbet mix which was a very nice palate-cleansing finish to the meal. Complimentary sake was an unexpected treat. Overall, another fabulous night at Ho Lee Fook. NOTES: They used to have a no-bookings policy for groups of less than 5 which was always a bit tricky but they now take bookings (at least during this covid-19 period).More

Boisterous, energetic and tasty. What a fun night, I've been meaning to try Ho Lee Fook for years, I finally did it and I am extremely happy I did, how do Black Sheep Restaurants run their restaurants so differently? There is so much more, always....It's an experience, you don't just go to a Black Sheep Restaurant to sit and eat, well you could, but you'd experience so much more than that, always. I woke up in the morning after dining at Ho Lee Fook, still thinking about the dinner we had, I just want to go back and have that experience again, the food is outstanding, the service is outstanding, Ho Lee Fook is OUTSTANDING! Absolutely delightful.More

Had to reserve and wait a little. Very dark which is unusual for a Chinese. Love everything we ordered. A little noisy and dark to talk but food was superb. Highly recommended by a Chinese

Heard about this place from many friends and was very excited to come. I knew what I was going to order months ahead of time, and it lived up to my expectations. The Short Rib was perfectly cooked, and eternally memorable.More

Char Siu, you haven't tried it until you eat the Char Siu prepared at Ho Lee Fook! Absolutely delicious and tender, great fat to meat ratio! The food was OUTSTANDING, elevated chinese food to die for! The wing bean with garlic puree was honestly one...of the best things I have ever eaten! This Chef knows what he is doing and the service backs it up very well. Great vibe, with flavorful food and attentive service, I have nothing negative to say, only a WOW, keep up the good work. The hygiene protocols were also very appreciated.More

Went here ages ago for the dessert. Ho Lee Fook is a fun place for Chinese food with a Western twist.

The decor is super nice and very different than usual restaurants. The menu is tight and quite interesting, but food is generally bad: there was so much salt and msg in everything we had. Spicy chicken wings and crispy chicken were better... steamed asparagus, bamboo...salad, stir fried cheong fun were almost inedible. Barramundi fillet was frozen hence quite tasteless and flaky when steamed. Service tends to be over friendly but not knowledgeable... they tried to explain to us that Asian food was to be shared and what a wok is, but then cannot cook simple and straightforward Chinese food. Not worth going back.More

I prefer being at the restaurant, because I just love the team there so much! But I am very thankful I can now order the best Chinese food straight to my house through Black Sheep Restaurants GO application! I'll be back again and again and...again, I'm just so appreciative that I can eat Ho Lee Fook food on my couch! See you guys soon, for the next little while you will see my name through your delivery platform every day! Love you guys!More
