We searched and searched for a good Chinese restaurant but we found a GREAT Chinese restaurant. The food is awesome and the staff is the best. We go everytime we need a Chinese food fix. I would recommend this place to everyone.

I lived in China for five years and have a Chinese wife. On moving to Houston we tried to find decent Chinese food but had no luck even in Chinatown until we stumbled on Lucky Dragon. The portions are huge, the prices low, and the food is authentic but not inspired. The place lacks ambience b…

About as good as the rest.Problem is to many items on the menu are bought from restaurant suppliers and not made ON SITE They should vary the items on the menu and make these itemsat there location.Pick items that are actually eaten in China and break the monotany of the same - o same - o typ…

How do you know a chinese restaurant is good, not greasy and gross? When you see Chinese families actually eat there. I went to this restaurant for the first time last year around Christmas and New Years Day. I went again this year when Hurricane Ike struck. Can you believe it, they were act…

The food and charming dining room are top notch. I had their lunch special of perfectly spiced red curry sauce with the largest, tenderest shrimp I've ever had. The rice came out in the shape of Texas which was a very nice touch. The red curry sauce is an addictive blend of spices and... just…

This is definitely the best chinese food in the area. The lomein is fantastic and the Gen. Tso's actually has red peppers rather than jalapenos, which seems to be annoyingly popular in Houston. I haven't gotten delivery from them yet, but our experience in the restaurant was very pleasant. Servi…

I have been coming here for over 20 years. The food is delicious. Everything is prepared fresh and you can tell. The eggrolls are huge they look like burritos not the fake ones you see at other places. The shrimps in the fried rice are big you can actually see them and taste them. I have tried e…

This place is excellent! The price is reasonable for all that you can get. It's always very busy and hectic so if you are looking for something peaceful good luck! The staff is very friendly and happy to help. The place is always very clean and well stocked. I can't imagine what you would find w…

Selection of the food was a nice range. The ribs were tender with good flavor. The veggies were cooked all the way. Now the service-- depends on what u call service. Our waitress was nice and after a bit came and took our used plates. Another waitress had to get us our drinks. The place was star…

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 …

We get takeout from them on a weekly basis. Their food is solid and continues to impress us. Some of the best dishes are: Happy Family, General T-so's Chicken, Hunan Delight and my most favorite the ""House"" Wonton Soup.

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
11-11-09 was our first experience at La Cantina on I-10. The building looks appealing. The inside (including ladies room) was very clean!!!! The atmosphere was pleasant. The employees were kind and timely. Our food came out in a timely manner and was HOT. : ) I got the La Tapatia with a side of guacamole and my husband got the Cowboy. The chips were warm and crisp. The salsa was not too hot (with pepper) - I was sooooo pleased that I could eat it. The flavor of both salsas was AWESOME! I make my own salsa and their red sauce was very close to mine. Two thumbs up on the salsas!!!! The meals were DELICIOUS! Everything was seasoned to perfection. Even the lettuce and tomato tasted like lettuce and tomato and not unripe tasteless veggies. AND the guacamole was not overtaken by the taste of lime. I hate when all you taste is lime and no avocado. It is reasonably priced and we both were busting at the seams. We even brought some home. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE!!! If they have gift cards I hope to get one in my Christmas stocking from Santa!
Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites. Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
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.
This is my favorite Mexican restaurant ever. We have frequented a lot of Mexican food restaurants, and who hasn't when you live in Texas. But Tierra Luna Grill is by far the best I have ever been to. The flavor of the salsa is awesome. Evidently they grill the tomatoes for the salsa and who knows how they spice it up. The chips are warm and thin and crispy. They give you a small bowl of queso with the chips. I could dine on the chips and stuff alone. They were soooo good. And the waitstaff is terrific at keeping the bowls full and making their customers happy. The owner even came by and visited with us. She was wonderful. And then there are the entrees. All I can say is 'WOW!' They were marvelous. The Carnitas, Fajitas, and the Barbacoa are to die for. Perfectly cooked and spiced to enhance the flavor, not overpower it. The charro beans and spanish rice where super as well. Fantastic homecooked Mexican food and the waitstaff is great. We very highly recommend the Tierra Luna Grill.
We decided on the Villagio & couldn't be happier! The venue is clean, spacious, and simply elegant. We had our ceremony and reception here. Trish, owner & overall planner, is prompt, thorough, charismatic and easy to work with. The venue is tucked away at the end of a street, with private parking & far from the street. There are inside/outside room options, but the trademark is a beautiful spiral staircase for a grand bridal entrance! The package we chose was the Ultimate II. This package comes with everything except the DJ and videographer so we didn’t have to worry about hiring various vendors for each part of our wedding. Trish already has a strong vendor selection. Our package came with food, cake, linens, floral arrangements, photo booth, lighting, photography, 2 HPD officers, and a wedding coordinator. We paid extra for drapery and it was beautiful. The caterers allowed us to test the food in a prior meeting so we can give them very specific details. Mr. & Mrs. King 08/12/2016
First off, this place is beautiful inside. ( N Gessner @ Kempwood) For a strip center Thai restaurant, you walk into another world once inside. The staff is friendly and helpful, and our dining companions appreciated the explanations before ordering. Starting with the soups, we've had the Tom Kha and Tom Yum; both are excellent, with the former the best we've ever had. Hot and sour is on deck for our next visit. The lettuce wrap is a delicious appetizer, with the incredible sauce used with the minced chicken and veggies a special treat. The menu is helpful, offering 6 different heat (spicy) levels, as well as little icons next to each dish naming its country of origin. It's another great dining experience in Spring Branch, and we can't wait ti return. Pad Thai and Green Curry are the meals we can't quite get past as they are so well prepared. Portions are generous, making perfect lunches the next day.
Wow!! What a great find! Haven't found a quality restaurant like this for a long time. The food is very fresh with a crispness in flavors. The menu offered variety but nothing is everyday about this food. I loved the shrimp bisque soup with subtle flavors that were not overpowering. No taste of frozen shrimp here. The house salad was fresh with homemade dressings of choice(nice flavors). The delicous crab and shrimp stuffed trout fillet was perfectly cooked being moist and flaky. My husband ordered prime rib and has yet to stop bragging about the flavor and tenderness. The owner(chef) visits each table and chats with the customers. He is so personable and you feel as if you are a guest in his home. Service by the staff was excellent. Still can't believe the incredible service and food for such reasonable prices. Wish we lived closer to the restaurant.
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.
