favorite chinese take-out – This is my favorite Chinese food. I have never eaten in, so I can't comment on the service or atmosphere, but everytime I come in for to-go food everyone is very nice. My favorites are the salt & pepper shrimp, and the General Tso's chicken. Soooo tasty. The General Tso's is just the right amount of sweet, and nice and crispy. The pieces are a little too big, but no biggie. Highly recommend this place. And they're open pretty late which is a plus.
Ok to check out for your self. – I was talked into going to this restaurant. There is no parking; it is on the busy street of NE Sandy St. Casual attire is fine. The House Rice was okay, nothing to rave about. The Lemon Spicy Fried Shrimp was the best. The Sizzling Vegetables with Seafood was ok it lack freshness of the vegetables I felt. The decorum was not inviting but the host/waitress/cashier was very confident in talking to us which I like very much.
Best late night chinese food – I just recently found this place, and I'm glad I did! They're open til midnight every night, and have a huge menu with lots of veggie options. The general tsao's is to die for, and so is the salt and pepper shrimp or squid. Average prices, and I've only done take out, so I can't comment on the dining service, but they're always very friendly when I pick up my food. Parking can be scarce, as they are right on Sandy with no parking lot (that I'm aware of anyways).
Best Ever!! – Been going there for years and absolutely LOVE it! Everyone I take there stays a regular customer. Everything is always super fresh, especially the vegetables. I love spicy and they do it well, upon request. Favorites are definetly pepper-salted shrimp and crispy sesame shrimp. My favorite Portland restaurant.
I've tried desperately to find good Chinese in PDX. I've finally found it here. – My girlfiend and I moved up to PDX two years ago, and were shocked with the number of sub-par Chinese places in Portland, especially since my girlfriend's favorite food was Chinese. We were let down a lot at first with over a dozen attempts, and when all hope to find good Chinese seemed lost, we decided randomly to try this place. It was just what we were looking for. Delicious dishes, Verrrrry generious portions. Incredibly inexpensive for what you get. If, like us, you are having a hard time find 'your' kind of Chinese in PDX, give this place a shot.
True Comfort Food – We used to live around the corner from Zien Hong, and miss it sorely. The staff are so friendly, and the food is dependably delicious, unlike many other joints we could name! Our favorites are the curry noodles, chow mein noodles, kung pow combination, Mongolian beef, and General Tso's chicken. The decor leaves a lot to be desired, but it hardly matters when yummy food is in the offing.
Never Fails to please – My Dad introduced this place to my siblings and I about ten years ago. He talked it up so much I was sure I'd be dissapointed, not the case. We have been coming back monthly ever since. I feel spoiled for good chinese/asian cuisine, no where else compares now. They are friendly, fast and the food is ALWAYS very good. We used to jokingly say we couldn't go wrong and shout out random numbers for choices on the menu, and we were always pleasantly suprised. It's a HUGE menu, they are fast and it's always what you expect it to be. I would take anyone here. Sure it's dark and not very visually stimulating, but if you're just looking for GOOD food, you can't miss at Zien Hong. Don't leave without trying the pepper fried shrimp, or sizzling happy family.
Bad pho – Do not go here for pho!!! The pho soup I ordered came with only broth, a couple of slices of meat, a lot of noodles, and nothing else. It was an insult to the vietnamese national soup.
wHY IS ALL THE CHINESE FOOD IN pORTLAND SO SALTY – i HAVE TRIED ALOT OF CHINESE IN THE 2 YEARS I HAVE LIVED HERE AND ALL ARE SO SALTY. this place is the best so far but there is a lack of freshness in its taste. Veg is over cooked you can tell they use alot of can stuff from the tinny taste in beef items
Good food for a reasonable price – We went here after reading the reviews, not wanting to go to a large restaurant like Legin or Wong's Seafood or eat americanized chinese food. It was a small place, nothing to rave about on its ambience. But, the service was surprisingly good - friendly servers who smile! The portions were plentiful and there is a lot to choose from. I especially like it when we get our own teapot and they were very attentive at refilling our water glasses. And they're open pretty late. The only con is finding street parking. We will definitely come back!
