I had the most wonderful and authentic HKG style meals in York when I was staying there for my girl's new school term.

Everything ordered is freshly made, fried rice, fried noodles, noodles with soup!!! They even have home made BBQ pork (Char Siu) and roasted pork belly (Siu Yuk).

I can go there for every meal without bothering cooking and never get bored on the dishes!

It is our first time here in York and this small shop amazed us with its authentic Hong Kong food. We ordered a Wonton rice noodle and rice with Char Siu and Siu Yuk. Very delicious! The milk tea is a MUST to order as it warms your heart with its flavored fragrance.

Really appreciate the owner's perseverance in making the authentic food from Hong Kong, which is an important aspect of its culture.

We 5 dropped by accidently as its not far from a house we are renovating and we could not resist sticking our heads in out of curiosity. What a fantastic find. If you want decor and fancy service go elswhere. If you want good family canton chinese food on formica tables, this is the place. They have recently opened and the food is great. Basic menu but good. Make sure you try their big soups.
We have eaten chinese all over the world and this one is good food.
Once they have established themselves they will be noted. kent and his mum Alice are lovely and the dad can sure cook. We will be regulars.

Thank organised

When we first ran into upper river, we were surprised by the authentic Cantonese flavours. We ordered beef satay noodles and Hong Kong style French toast. They are not just delicious, but recalled the best memories of Hong Kong cha chaan tien. We went back again twice to try out other dishes and upper river never fails your taste buds. The Singaporean fried noodles we tried was stunning. If you pay it a visit, definitely not to forget the hk style milk tea!
