Hong Kong Express is, in my opinion, the best Chinese restaurant on the island! The staff are friendly and polite however when ordering online for delivery, it has often taken up to an hour to deliver. Worth it though!

So good even my 6 and 8 year olds finished their takeaway- and that's never happened before! Speedy delivery (after a PayPal mishap) and friendly service. Well Definitely order again

This restaurant serves good tasting and authentic Chinese food, quick and affordable. Also has good ambience and a nice wide window view of the pier if you feel like dining in. I must say that the service here was simply amazing, staff are friendly and always up for a good joke. Very welcoming bunch.

We used to live on the Island and Hong Kong Express was always a good place to eat. When we are this time it was a great disappointment, the food was very salt, the meat was tough and the staff seemed totally disinterested We will not return

Not very good at all. Food isn't that nice, mixed meat curry had more veg than meat. Staff are rude and unhelpful.... what more can I say. Don't waste your time. There are much nicer Chinese eateries in Ryde. Been several times and certainly won't return as each time worst than the last.

Went without a booking on a Saturday night. Was empty at 7.00pm but full by 8.00pm. Food was tasty and bigger than average portions

I think this cafe may be related to the one in Newport with the same name that we have used and is reasonable. But this one in Ryde is best missed. Food is a bit mediocre and were disappointed..

It all started off quite well - we fancied a Chinese after a nice day out. This place looked nice, the Waitress was friendly took our orders, brought our drinks out etc. Starters were simple enough - spring rolls (which were impressively nuclear hot), some chicken satay style skewers & I chose Hong Kong style spare ribs which were Ok...

My family had a takeaway meal from here and it was just OK. My chicken with cashew dish was very slightly undercooked, and the sauce on it sweeter than I've ever had with that dish. The portion size was quite good. The egg fried rice was a bit oily, and wasn't as large a portion as I'd have expected. Overall... More
