I absolutely love China Bear. It is an inexpensive buffet that really is your money's worth. The exterior of the place is fascinating. There's beautiful koi fish everywhere. Who ever bred them did an absolute wonderful job because there are over hundreds and they're all beautiful. Now onto the gift shop... They sell little knick knacks from jewelry to beautiful wooden structures. Granted it's not the best quality gift shop, but what do you expect. They're always interested finds like little crystals, chinese robs, and nice paintings. And lastly they're bamboo plants and bonsai plants are one of the best quality ones I can find in all of Houston. They're inexpensive and yet nicely grown and groomed. Every time I go I'm urged to buy another one lol. This restaurant is huge and so if their buffet options. They have lots of foods, from sushi, stir fry, crawfish, and now oysters. I went the other day and they're oysters were literally the biggest oysters I have ever seen. The food I personally think is delicious. It's not fancy, creative, and gourmet, but it's good, homey food. They have delicious mac n' cheese, green beans, fish, and more. People just need to understand that this isn't meant to be a five star restaurant. it's meant to be a family styled buffet that offers a bang for your buck. For less than twenty dollars per person, everyone is full and happy. There's even ice cream and desserts. China Bear is worth it and delicious, and I will stand by it forever because not only are my children and husband happy, my wallet is. Now the only cons I would say is the service. Most are Asian and cannot speak English very well, but all they do is give you your drink and occasionally fill it up. The food is all self- served, so I personally don't think their service is anything to cry about.

Although the restaurant could use some innovation, and they might need more waiters, but the food there I think is great. My friend and I hang out over there every weekend, and i brought my girlfriend there too, and she thought it was great. The thing is stick with the known dishes. I try new th…
Definitely a solid place to get some good take-out. The place looks really sketchy/hole-in-the-wall like (and I probably wouldn't go there to dine in normally), but definitely great take-out if you're looking for cheap, decent-quality, tasty chinese.
This restaurant is locate very close to the Med Center And is very friendly .The good thing is they have Lunch Help yourself with a difference flavor cooking and I mean the real home style cooking ,IN a hurry that is the play to eat and go ...................love it
7. Jimmy Wok
They have good food BUT make sure you know what you want. Lady who took order was very short with me because I wasn't familiar with the menu and she was very hard to understand. I asked for a sample and she snapped at me. I have gone twice in one week. First time surving size was much larger tha…
9. China Stix
I'm really excited since I discovered there is a 2nd China Stix location out in Friendswood, much closer to where we live. Especially since none of the other Chinese restaurants out in the Clear Lake, Seabrook area even hold a candle to China Stix' great food.\r PS: Try the House Special Pa…
12. Dynasty Cafe

13. Fu's Garden
We went there for our first time last week. It was about 4 o'clock on a Saturday afternoon, and there were maybe two other ppl sitting at tables. The food was hot and fresh. General Tso Chicken was still crisp and not soggy from sitting in the sauce. Wonton soup was outstanding.The service w…
Hunan's has a wide variety of chinese food. I love Sesame Chicken and it is great there. The lunch specials are priced fairly and they even throw in an egg roll. The Crab Rangoons are delicious. The atmosphere seems pleasant for dine in. It could be used for casual or romantic. I have only used …
AMAZING!! 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 satis…
17. Mings Cafe
I'm trying to find where I can purchase the mint green tea that they had at the cafe on Montrose at Westheimer? If you know where I can get in touch with the previous owners or someone please contact me. I live in Las Vegas now and still miss that mint green tea. Thanks!
Had a wonderful experience every time we went. The food was always excellent and the service was always attentive and friendly. No where can we find "Road Kill Pork" that has such a wonderful flavor. All his dishes were unique. Never was the same sauce used on all dishes. A different and compl…
I LOVE this place. I am very picky when it comes to chinese food. This is my favorite place to eat chinese food. We always order their lo mein and mongolian beef, chicken, and shrimp. Their vegetable rolls are good too. I only wish I lived closer. Would recommend this to everyone. You will not …
I've been there several times. The food has been fresh tasty and quick. Its cheap but not super cheap. The dinning area is clean. Oh and its open late. All three times I had the dish with honey wallnuts and tofu. I recomend!
I normally LOATHE attempts at Chinese food within the loop, BUT there is something about this family owned and operated establishment that one simply can't hate. From their lunch specials to their beautiful dinner selections it's hard to make a bad choice at 3 6 9. Three, six and nine are lucky…

I enjoy going to this restaurant. The food is delicious and served promptly. The decor is stupendous. The staff remembers my name, even after months at a time. I bring new patrons to show off this hidden gem. Eat here!
The food is very good, especially for the price! You may find something better, but this is convenient and has a big selection for a good price! For around $10, you get an entree like chicken or beef, a soup, a spring roll or crab puff, and rice. What a deal! Also they deliver very fast! They ma…
Great service from beginning to end. Very attentive staff!\r \r Food is always yummy.\r \r I can't say anything bad about this restuarant.\r \r They have the best Fried Rice, any flavor!\r \r \r
I have been going there for at least 10 years, and it has always impressed me. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. The food is top notch. My favorite dish there is the lemon chicken. I have been to several Chinese restaurants and never had lemon chicken as good as this!
You did it, didn't you? What are you(to myself) talking about? I am thankful about those who raised and protected me. "It's my time." I am at parentplus status. I know I nEEd to !!!!!plan!!!!! my "locked time" and then, no it's just and, my "eating variety time" and my "parental rights, not parental duties". Review this restaurant, right?! Yeah, other people do plan about others' plan. Copying might be faster, but some might be "thinking about the younger", to "ensure many productive, not many not always productive, quality thinking with long term productivity". "less use words of alot? abundant!" I am two tildeS, one above the other, 4 fEEt and 6.5 inches tall. "SwEEt sabotage on Sundays lunchtimes", thanks. " "Better than nothing" hot tea" to "create parentplus chickens parts bones soup!!!!!s!!!!!". "Some chinese onion spice,"Pinch" of salt,"Not Sundays sabotage" " are the times to at least try your best(and to myself) to finish "my better than nothing, better than good AHplus AHplus, parentplus cows internals parts credits to kEEp my parentplus head", "get your own." My past and present for now residences are Hong Kong, Houston, Meadows Place, Sugarland(Townwest) and visited other places. 12/15/2009 11:57AM
Great food poor service. Have been going here for a few years. There is a young man who has worked for them for some time. When they allowed him to work the floor as waiting staff is when the problem begin. He can be rude and rough and he smirks when it is pointed out to him. The owners haven't really noticed due to the fact it is a small business and everyone stays busy. He also was what I call really pushy when it came to two different tables ordering, instead of letting the people order what they wanted he insisted they order his way, changing what they had wanted to order and I not saying in a good way, he made them feel they didn't know how to order right, he couldn't do that to my family or me, and his attitude really got down right huffy. So sad good food clean, and reasonable. if I decide to order there again it will always be carry out. At least as long as he is still working there. I do miss the woman who often use to wait on us, now she had people skills.
The food i get is usually pretty good. I love the cheese puffs. The meats are always good too but I pretty much stick to the same things. 1)sessami chicken/ or beef + peapods. 2)Orange chicken or beef 3)beef and veggies (forgot the name) 4)sweet and sour shrimp (a favorite) my thing is that after the first time I ordered peapods with the one dish and they were good and fresh every other time they tasted pickled :(p and I can't eat them I also don't care for the onions but that's not just there but every Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at. Overall I like this place and will keep ordering their food. Oh and I am not giving up on the peapods I will keep ordering them and ask for them fresh if I ever get them like that I will update review to 5 stars.
Dinner before a show. Waiter seemed distracted & annoyed. Ordered drinks and app's. Before we placed all our app orders he started to leave. Called him back to finish our order. Asked for spring rolls, all out. This was at 5:30 in the evening. I ordered a bourbon w/ice from the bar. Served in glass a little bigger than a shot glass not worth the price. Ordered lemon chicken as this what everyone raves on. No hint of lemon flavor at all. More sweet than anything. Would not be surprised if waiter got order wrong. Ate it anyway. Didn't have time to reorder. Waiter did not ask steamed or fried rice, brought fried. Egg roll good, not anything special. Might go again and order the lemon chicken and see what I get.
I love this place. I work nearby and have eaten there once a week (or more) for almost 5 years. They don't even take my order anymore check first if I want "my regular" and know right what it is. Very friendly staff and the best Tso's and Orange Chicken. Cashew Chicken is good too and the Special Lo Mein is delicious as well as the Crab Puffs. Try the Garlic Chicken or Tangy Spicey Beef too. Even Ken Hoffman agrees their H&S Soup is the best in Houston!! Food is always hot, fresh and fast. I prefer to Dine-in, as Take-out anywhere is just never quite the same and here is no exception. But the take out is pretty good too. Very good prices as well, especially for lunch.
...an all-around great restaurant...sometimes I get a rude waiter but nothing's perfect. There's great food and drinks (virgin and otherwise) and the setting is good for a range of occassions. For example, I've dined at P.F. Chang's on a date with someone special, hung out with my homeboy, my daughter, and his daughter, taken my daughter there for their spare rib appetizer and fried rice, and it's also great for informal business meetings. I've also tried the Mongolian beef, Spicy Chicken (Gen. Tso-ish), Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Lettuce Wraps...a must have for the less formal occasions (or just for fun). An average meal for two is about $25-$30. Enjoy!!!
I've living at these apartment since they open in 2011, no problem plus I've moved into a bigger space ( 4-bedrooms for guest room and computer room for $739 and month ). They never had a break-in and the complex is small with an onsite officer. They are selective on who they let to keep out of those bad renter (renters credit check). Don’t get me wrong the apartment as always full or goes quickly; meaning you may have to call every week( if you want to stay there). But that’s how it goes for a safe, quiet, and great location and reasonable rent. No complaints from my end and I will continue to live at Golden Bamboo Village 2 until I purchase a house.
So I decided to give the scallion wings a try since a couple of people Yelp recommend it. And honestly the wings taste so basic like the ones from Lee's Sandwiches. But on the other hand the house special noodles w/ the agg on top was so flavorful & tasty. European fried rice was good but it was lacking in a way. The beef chow fun was super but don't get it in the sauce, my sauce was under cooked it looked like jelly, I suggest you order it dry instead. Service is horrible on weekends. I rather come on a weekday where it's empty and everyone is ready to serve you and the food won't be so cold. I rate this place 3-4 stars decent price for decent food.
Now grant it, this is not P.F. Chang's, but if you are tired and want a quick chinese meal, this is a great place to order take out or simply dine if for a quiet meal. Like the first review stated, there are only a few tables and it is actually a more "to go" type establishment; but it does have pleasant staff and fast service. Most importantly, they deliver to any residence within 3 miles of the restuarant!!! So, yes, it may not be a five star gourmet dining experience, but it sure beats having to stare in the refrigerator or thaw out something from the freezer! The pepper steak is my favorite, but beware of the soups......Not the best!!!
