Today, the restaurant is run by their children Evelyn and Paul while Mary oversees the operations. The Restaurant began with a single dining room on the first floor. Major changes began in 1970, when the restaurant expanded to include the three floors that it occupies today. The Hong Kong Restaurant is a full-service establishment with a full dining room on the first floor, a lounge on the second floor and a dance floor on the third floor. In addition, The Hong Kong hosts The Comedy Studio six nights a week.
