Our Story


Welcome to our House

Our Mission

The Ho Yuen mission is to share local Hong Kong family style delicacies from our family to yours. Being family-owned and family-operated for more than 50 years, we cook with the freshest ingredients and homemade recipes, and serve our customers with warmth and dedication.

The Ho Yuen logo resembles Hong Kong’s Lion Rock, an iconic silhouette that embodies the Hong Kong spirit of hard work, resilience, and the drive to excel. Our restaurant aims to share this spirit with you through our food and service.

From its humble beginning as a food stall at the foot of Lion Rock in Kowloon, Ho Yuen has grown to become a well-established family style restaurant with operations in Hong Kong and Canada.

Our flagship restaurant is currently located at Lions Rise Mall, Wong Tai Sin, at the foot of Lion Rock. We remain family-owned and family-operated, dedicated to serving our customers the highest-quality local dishes with warm hospitality.
