Been Looking For A Great Chinese Restaurant?


My family has been looking for a great chinese restaurant in the central Houston area for a long long time. I came across these reviews and said hey why not. We have become so tired of the same old PF Chang and Pei Wei. So I take my family out to Cafe Chino and we were totally satisfied with the selection and the quality of food that was served. Our favorites were the General Chows Chicken and the Fillet Mignon. O and dont forget to get yourself some Hot and Sour soup. I w

Eddie and May are always extremely accommodating! They take Asian cuisine to a whole new level! We always try something new, whether it is the red snapper special or the amazing lamb lollipops... Hands down, best dumplings in town! Great wine list as well... Enjoyed my best birthday dinner with theses two talented chefs! Try it once and you'll be recommending this place to everyone you know!!

Has one of the best happy hours being it lasts from 11AM to 7PM when most other restaurants only last 4 to 6. I especially like their cosmos. Given the fact that it is family owned and operated you get the home cooked feel and atmosphere.

A pitch perfect Chinese restaurant

What has always been great about the restaurant culture here in Houston is the access we have to authentic international restaurants owned and ran by real families, and Cafe Chino would certainly qualify as that - a REAL Chinese restaurant. I capitalize REAL, because I'm not talking about syrupy goop on some overly battered and charred piece of pseduo chicken. I'm talking about the real stuff, where you can find the usual Hunan standards, though there is nothing common about the grub o...view morence you actually taste it. Compare their General's Chicken to any other restaurant, for example. I like to compare their version of General Tso's chicken with what you would normally encounter at other Chinese restaurants. On such a basic dish, you can already see how Cafe Chino sets itself apart. It would be unfair to compare their Sea Bass to another Chinese restaurant's, obviously, as I cannot even think of another Chinese restaurant that would offer Sea Bass, let alone at such a high quality. It is one of only a tiny handful of real Chinese restaurants in town, and certainly the only one within a 15 mile radius. Aside from that, the entire dining experience is casual yet easily elegant enough for a night of fine dining, and always stylish without being polarizing. And to me, the food at Cafe Chino is akin to their decor - it can be perfect as an impromptu destination for lunch on some random afternoon, or you can order the signature chef inspired dishes and make it a night of exploratory Chinese haute cuisine . Like I said, it's just pitch perfect, depending on what kind of night (or day) you want it to be.view less

Excellent food!

I used to go to this place in Rice Village all the time but the past few years I've avoided Rice Village due to all the bars that have opened. Lack of parking. Drove by there new location and decided to give it a try. What a transformation? This place is sleek and modern. Very nice looking bar and dining room. Service was fantastic. They have the same great food as I remember and wonderful desserts that you wouldn't normally have at a Chinese place. This is definitely a unique ...view moreHouston restaurant.view less

Not your ordinary Chinese Restaurant!

This place is fantastic. Great new location with plenty of parking now. Very easy to get to than the location in Rice Village. This restaurant offers something for everyone. It has great service to go along with the great food and that's very rare for a Chinese restaurant. Definitely worth a try!!!

The food (coming from a Chinese guy) just isn't that great...I've had much better at some other restaurants. But that's just my opinion.

Best Chinese Food in town

I felt compelled to write this review because I feel I have found a diamond in the rough. In a city that is not necessarily known for having a great Chinese food scene, Cafe Chino proves that Houstonians may yet have at least one Chinese restaurant to brag on. The decor is sleek and modern with a bar perfect for unwinding after a work day. But it is the food that really blows me away. Cafe Chino offers a wide variety of Chinese dishes for every type of eater. Their traditional Chinese ...view moreplates are a full head and shoulders above any other Chinese restaurant in town. There really is no Chinese restaurant in Houston that can compare. If you have a more adventurous palate and choose from one of their daily specials you are sure to be in for a unique treat. Most of their specialty dishes stray from the limitations of the traditional Americana Chinese meal (i.e. General Tso’s Chicken, egg rolls ect…) and resemble more of a type of Chinese fusion. I can say with absolute certainty that their Chilean Sea Bass is one of the best I have every had. If you are looking for a great upscale Chinese restaurant in town be sure to check this place out. You will not be disappointed.view less

Great Chinese Food w/ great service

This place was delicious. So unlike anything I've had. Its kills the competition in the area. Pei Wei, Qin Dynasty got nothing on this place. The fish dishes are to die for. The server recommended them to me and said they were Cafe Chino specialties. Wine selection was pretty decent for an Asian restaurant. Most asian restaurants have your typical crappy house wines. This place seems to really differentiate itself from everywhere else. Its a very modern design but still inviting. The b...view morear is amazing looking. They have a lot of good variety on the menu. They also have great Happy Hour that I will certainly take advantage of. Anyways, I will certainly make this place a usual stop. Great stuff!‎view less

Nice atmosphere

The atmosphere looks modern and artsy. It is peaceful place without any stressful waiting period. The dumplings and edamame are awesome.
