Ding How Chinese Restaurant
4531 NW Loop 410, San Antonio, TX 78229
My girlfriend and I had read good things on Citysearch, but Ding How turned out to be the worst dining experience we've ever had in San Antonio. Here was the evening in a nutshell:
1. Nobody was at the hostess counter, so a busboy tried to seat the two of us at a table for eight. When we turned it down he tried to seat us directly next to the kitchen (the restaurant was only half full). We chose our own table.
2. I'm a vegetarian, and Chinese restaurants are usually vegetarian friendly. The dish I ordered under the ""vegetarian"" section was obviously made with chicken, and when I informed management that they couldn't lie to their customers they offered little, if any, help.
3. Their hot and sour soup is the worst my girlfriend had ever had. She described it as ""just wrong"".
4. When I placed a drink order, the waitress had never heard of the drink...even though it was on their menu. Throughout the evening, we had trouble finding waiters/waitresses to help us.
Altogether, don't be fooled by the high rating. This is an abysmal restaurant that obviously doesn't care about its customers. I don't want to assume that San Antonio doesn't have any good Chinese food, but Ding How should not be highly rated. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
