Hollywood Steak House in Richmond

Polly recommended this place to us. The Hollywood Steak House located on Leslie Road (just behind Wendy’s on No 3 Rd) is basically a HK Style Cafe despite the name. We would not have found this place on our own perhaps because the signs in the restaurant front is almost all in Chinese and it’s located out of the way from the busy No 3 Rd.


So, what defines a HK Style Cafe? Why … it’s the Milk Tea! They came with every dish we ordered.


Suanne ordered a Personalised Combo which allows a selection of two dishes from a menu of perhaps 15. The Combo also comes with a soup, garlic toast and spaghetti. All these for only $9.95. Here is what she had:

The Corn Cream Soup is very creamy and very rich of corn flavour. It has chunks of artificial crab meat in it. It looked nice and tastes great.


Oh, the Garlic Toast were the prettiest we had ever seen. A ring of burnt outside crust which was crispy but the insides were soft … not sure if this is freshly baked bread but it sure tastes like it. We could just have this toast for lunch! Too bad they gave only one piece.


Remember the choice of two from the menu? Suanne chose the Garlic Mussels and Albertan Beef Cube. The Albertan Beef Cube is crisp on the outside and tender and moist inside.


There were four large mussels too. We felt that this dish is worth more than $9.95 else where.


Nanzaro ordered Malaysian Style Rice Noodle for $6.95 . Its Fried Kway Teow with sliced onions, sweet peppers, prawns, BBQ pork and eggs. Nothing special about it. Sigh, my son had not acquired their parent’s fine taste for good food. 🙂


Arkensen is no different. He ordered Yeong Chow Fried Rice ($5.95). There was a generous helping of prawns, peas and BBQ pork. Both the boys are the same … they will always order either fried rice, fried noodles or a bowl of noodle soup. Tell me, is this a good thing or a bad thing?


Total bill came up to $27 (inclusive of taxes and tips). Not bad, right?

    Mmm, that Yeong Chow Fried Rice looks great and for only $6 ?? Gotta remember it next time I’m in Richmond.

    Sigh, there are SO many restaurants in Richmond. One can probably eat at a different one every day for a whole year (or more) and not make a repeat !

    Many of these HK style cafes offer good value and quality, especially the combo meals. My local fave of this type is the Cafe Gloucester on Cambie.

    Oh, that’s not too expensive for so many dishes.

    It all looks very good.
    It looks like a very good deal for something that nice.

    definitely a kid thing! i remember being like that *exactly* when i was younger. but my tastes definitely expanded as i got older. i actually think simply being around such a variety of food when i was younger made it easier for me to embrace new kinds of food as i got older. so there’s hope for your kids!

    Hi Col, MamaBok … Whew! Glad to have affirmation that my boys will grow up alright! 😉

    While you’re still paying for their food, it’s a good thing. =D

    Thanks for the recommendation, Ben. We visited this restaurant over the weekend and ordered Salty Fish with Chicken Fried Rice, Beef Chow Fun, and Deep Fried Wings/Fries. Food was quite good but service was lacking. It is truly a great deal for all the food/drink we got. Fed the four of us quite well.

    My friends and I frequent this place because of the cheap food and good portions. The service is not too bad, although the waitresses are not always on alert (the restaurant isn’t that busy in the first place) they are courteous and offer decent service.

    Food tastes pretty good too. Recommended to grab a bite to eat without breaking your wallet.
