Have been there a number of times, with ever-improving results. We always go for the sushi platters, and this last time there was a marked improvement. The fish portions were generous, and very, very fresh. A new waitress as well, who was cheerful, attentive and who knew her job. The ambience is not exactly brilliant, but it's got that authentic...

Love this spot for tasty genuine Japanese, Thai and sushi takeout. Enjoyed the spicy Tom Yum soup, Thai chicken curry and prawn fashion sandwiches again last night.

You don't go to Hongs for the atmosphere or for a romantic night out. Its in a run down mall with the clunking from the downstairs bowling alley reverberating round the tables. However, the team are friendly, service efficient and the sushi great value for money. Not the finest sushi in Cape Town but consistent, well presented and fresh. I... More

Really good sushi that chef Lee whips up, Helen always makes one feel special and the food is as good. Try the Nasi Goreng.

I went here with friends for supper, and had the sushi. It was delicious but I think I have experienced better service and value elsewhere. Nevertheless, my experience was pleasant.

We often have this for a takeout and the sushi is always extremely fresh, crunch and generous. The cashew chicken/noodle dishes are variable in terms of veggies in the mix for the day. Can't think of a time when this has ever disappointed. Highly recommend.

My wife and I get sushi from Hongs quite regularly - about once every two weeks... As a result we have a bit of an inside joke going - we wonder if we'll be getting the good chef or the average chef? Last night's (Saturday, 23 May) average sushi is what has prompted this review. It was just average. Not... More

Good food made with fresh ingredients at a reasonable price. Our different orders arrived in good time and my friends commented on the impressive menu offered at this venue. A winning formula. We were all satisfied with our food and the attention given by their staff.
