Ho Ho Gourmet Horrible Service – What a horrible experience at Ho Ho Gourmet last night!
I will never go there again!
I placed an order to go and while parked in the parking lot waiting for the order to be filled, a crazy asian lady, who I presume works at the restaurant pounded on my window, while yelling and screaming at me. I opened the window and caught that she didn't want me to park in the parking lot. I tried to explain I was waiting for an order to go and she still continued to yell at me, in partially understandable language.
I walked in side to find someone reasonable and found a nasty staff that had no concern for the unprofessional behavior from this crazy lady!
I am absolutely appalled at this utterly unprofessional behavior and service.
I recommend Cafe Tran in Murray for the best food you will have!
WHAT HAPPENED? – What happened ? The food is still good the
I went in day after Thanksgiving, The hostess was on one that day!
I have been eating here almost 20 years but not as often as before I always tip 20% or more the servers and hostess were like in a trance or the twilight zone?
I waited over 20 min for my order after finally flagging someone to take my order 1 item!
Finally I put my coat back on walked up to hostess
and said "CANCEL MY ORDER"
No apology I doubt I will go back
What happened to customer service?
Best Chinese Food EVER!!! – I love this place! My husband introduced me to it about a year ago and ever since we have gone there multiple times! The dining room is nothing fancy but believe me the food will make up for it 10 fold! Peking Spare Ribs, Beef with Flat Noodle, Orange Chicken, and General Taos Chicken are some of our all time favorites here! Everything is served with a side of sticky rice. The people there are so nice! Be warned though, once you try it, you will be craving it at least once a week!!! Soo addicting! Just wish I didn't live so far away!
Swing and a hit! – The restaurant itself is a bit of a "hole in the wall" but the food is great! We have often found that the best food is found in restaurants such as these. We ordered the cream cheese wontons and potstickers for appetizers and were very pleased with both. The wontons were delicious and the potstickers also very tasty and were much bigger than any potstickers I've had at any restaurant. Then we ordered the ham fried rice, mushrooms & beef, and the sweet & sour chicken for dinner. Everything was great! The fried rice was spectacular, the beef was very tasty and the chicken was fabulous. The chicken was actual white chicken breasts, not what we like to call "mystery meat", and the breading was perfectly crispy, even after sitting in the sauce. We were very pleased with our experience there and will definitely return!
Best Authentic Chinese Restaurant in Salt Lake – One of the best most authentic chinese restaurants I have had in a long time outside of China. Restaurant has very good authentic dishes for the more adventurist diner, however, if you want good old amercanized standby's, this is the place for you, also. When you first walk in it seems to exude the label "whole in the wall", however, once you settle there is a relaxed atmosphere that the servers seem to encourage. I had read a previous review that persons of Asian background had priority over all others, however, did not experience that here at all. Wanted that to be VERY clear about this place. Unfair. I recommend the Salt Crusted Shrimp and the Shanghai chicken. Dim Sum dishes are authentic and some of the best I have had slumin in New York China Town. Found this place from recommendation of Chinese friends at work. Nuff said.
The crab and other fish is great – This is as good as it gets in Salt Lake. And some dishes are fantastic by any standard. The steamed or fried whole fish is great, along with the steamed bass with bean sauce. The staff is efficient and even friendly. Although they are rushed when the place is packed at certain times. Their special menu items are very good and all food is fresh and prepared to order. Go for the food not the decor.
Great Cantonese Food in Salt Lake City – I have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant that served Cantonese style dishes in SLC and I think I finally found it, I tried their Beef in Oyster Sauce, Chicken Chow Mein, Char Shui (Buns with BBQ pork)(sorry about my chinese), Wong Tong
Until now in my quest for a good Cantonese restaurant this is the place to go, may not look good from the outside, but the food and the service were amazing. It's been only 4 days and I am already craving for chinese food.
I rate Ho-Ho gourmet even higher than Mandarin at Bountiful, which is supposed to be the best Chinese at SLC.
Dim Sum – One of the few authentic dim sum servers in the Salt Lake valley. Good variety on Saturdays. Sit by the kitchen in order to be first in line as the carts come out or they are picked over by the time they go by the first few tables and they turn around and go back to the kitchen without reaching the end of the line tables. As a result you wait for a long time for each offering. If you don't see what you want on the carts, just ask the server and they can bring an individual serving out to you. Atmosphere is not the most pleasing with respect to sanitation or decor. More like a cheap restaurant. For good service and a more attractive dim sum experience, patronize the Hong Kong on 4th South west of the Gateway.
Good food, busy restaurant – I was a little intimidated when I first tried Ho-Ho Gourmet. I don't have much experience with dim sum and the restaurant was extremely crowded and very busy. I tried a few different dishes like shrimp dumplings and steamed buns with pork filling. All the dishes I tried were either really good or fantastic. I wasn't sure what each one was and the staff wasn't extremely friendly but they were helpful. I will definitely try the restaurant again based on the food experience alone.
