BarFly's Review of Hung Far Low

Moved recently from historic Old Town Portland to trashy 82nd Ave. A bizarre choice. Mediocre Chinese food meets strong drinks meets that preprogrammed radio music that was in during the late 90s. What's that called again?

Worst service I've had

Only one waitress, who asked for payment before food was even delivered, some folks waited over an hour for their food

Hung Far Low

I used to like what was on 82nd before it became Hung Far Low. It was cheap and so on, but always a pleasant experience. In our family in the late '30s and early '40s, our idea of going out to dinner was like that of the Honeymooners: We'd go out for Chinese, and that meand upstairs in a roomlike booth at Hung Far Low. Being a kid, I was certainly no gourmet and ate anything I could get my hands on, but those are memories of dining in style upstairs with the family in a real restaurant that I'll never lose. That was Dining Out!

Hung Far Low

I worked there as a busboy in the early 70's. It was my introduction to Chinese food. Awesome fried shrimp, they had an awesome fried chicken as well. I loved the travel up the stairs. I need to go check out the 82nd location.......after they get it fixed!

History takes a hit

Wow - an institution almost 100 years old forced out by gentrification. The Emperor of China eat there somewhere around 1923.

Best Chinese food I've tasted. That not just in Portland, but anywhere. Been eating the food since I can remember and will continue. If I get food from anywhere else, I always say "not as good as Hung Far Low."

hung far low moves to 82nd st

This place moved from old town/chinatown in downtown Portland to out on 82nd. The reason the owner said they moved was because of their building rent being raised too high - considering the pearl district just up the street had become high income area of town, I guess that not a surprise. Anywho, as a southeastie, I appreciate reputable establishments moving to my neighborhood. They now are on the corner of 82nd and Division. 82nd street is informally becoming the new china town.

The Best

I have been eating at Hung Far Low for 27 years. The food has consistantly been great. I moved to Atlanata and as soon as I get off the plan, they are my first stop! The drinks are nice!!!

great food

The drinks are stiff and lovely, the food is great, I can recommend the fried shrimp, the general tsao's chicken, the ginger beef, and the fresh pork fried rice with peas and bean sprouts. I've been going here for 27 years, my dad and grandmother knew the original owners. Everyone there is really nice, too bad the customers aren't as polite as they are.
