If you have about 4 hours to eat a simple meal, then Sai Wan Hong Kong Bistro is for you! We arrived on a Sunday afternoon at 2:30 pm. The restaurant was not crowded. After walking through the door, we stood by the host desk for over 5 minutes and were completely ignored by a staff member who was 5 feet away, saw us, and did not even greet us with hello.

The server brought the tea but did not bring spoons or sugar with it. We had to ask for the sugar and we used our forks to stir the tea. Again, we did not receive our bill and waited forever to even see our server. It seemed that the staff was hiding in the kitchen. We got the bill and were not charged for the tea (probably because we waited so long for it). The service here is very poor, the staff is not friendly, and the food is just average. The atmosphere is pretty, and it seems clean. I would not waste my money here. Try Pei Wei or Tasty Joe's instead.
