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.
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
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.
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!!!
We literally went there on opening day after watching it being built. We like it a lot...have been many times and the food keeps getting better. I specifically like the sushi bar that started out with nothing and they have added more variety and volume every time we have gone. The last time my husband & I went, we also took my Mom and she was impressed by the various foods she tried. My husband has his favorites and is never disappointed. The service is friendly and sometimes a little TOO efficient! They keep it clean and the decor is attractive. I always feel like I have been well served and gotten my money''s worth when I eat here.
I have been going here ever since i have moved to houston texas.My brother in law first introduced me to this restaurant that is located on fm1960 near ella blvd.The owners are great people.When you go in there is always someone there to greet you.The food to go is very good priced and big portions.The fried rice at $5.25 is to die for and is portioned for about 4-5 people or more.The buffet is not to big but the food they do have there is great and always hot.If you have not tired tungs before i recommend you try it once and i guarantee you will go back for more.
