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 ? The food is still good the ""SERVICE SUCKS"" 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?

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!
Always love this place for the food. Friendly, authentic, always plenty of food and reasonable prices. Plenty of vegetables and meat in the dishes you like. Everything tastes great and they are always busy. If you don't want MSG ask them not to put it in. The Ho Ho Gourmet on state street is the best. The other Ho Ho Gourmet in North Salt Lake is not affiliated with them nor is it as good.

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!
Very busy I suggest you go before 11 am or after 1 pm weekdays for lunch specials till 3 pm
Saturdays and Sundays are packed till pm no lunch specials on weekends
you may just want to order takeout ahead on weekends
the only con is they use too much MSG I always say no MSG or avoid it if possible

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.

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.
