My friend took me here for lunch after having dinner there last week. Our server was rude and abrupt, and did not listen to our order. My friend sent the food back because it was the wrong dish, which seemed to upset the server. Meanwhile my food was cold, and although stamped ""spicy"" it was really not. My fried rice tasted old and salty, my shrimp were overcooked and rubbery. I was hesitant to complain because the server was very impatient with us for some reason. When i told him i did not like my dish he went and yelled about us to the manager. She came over and told me that in chinese cusine you cannot say you don't like the food because it is a waste of food, couldn't i understand that? She did not ask what i didn't like, or offer to remake it, or even get me something else. she did say she would take half off of our less than $10 lunch, instead of trying to give me a meal, which is what i was really trying to get.

I love their food. I go there all the time with my girlfriends. It is a great place to just have lunch with good Chinese food.
Of coarse their dumplings are amazing, but so is the rest of their food. They have great lunch specials that never break the bank.
We try to have something new every-time we go just challenge our taste buds, They never disappoint.

went with my family,order taker was very rude and ""know it all"" . after serving the soup for my wife and kids,i decided to order an extra bowl of soup(spend more money!!!) that's when he started mouthing out chinese words to ""himself""...this waiter ruined our whole dining experience and ruined it for the whole restaurant. food was not great.there are so many better chinese restaurants in houston.this was my first time there and i'm never going back..watch out for this waiter...wears glasses and probably the tallest amongst the short male waiters or just avoid this restaurant...go somewhere else!!!

I am a Chinese and I had one of the worst meals in my whole life last night at this restaurant.
I feel embarrassed being in a Chinese restaurant that serves such low quality food.
I had the hot and sour soup that tasted like dark soy sauce+hot spice+vinegar+water+few shredds of bamboo shoots. The dumplings were poorly made and shaped, not to mention how bad they taste. Go buy frozen dumplings at the Chinese supermarkets on Bellaire and they come out 100 times better. The water to drink tasted like rusty tap water with ice and the crispy tea duck that I ordered just tasted ""old"". It was fried totally dry in oid grease and tasteless. The tea duck should be a flavorful and complicated dish that suggests a mild tea flavor. Instead, I burped old grease all night last night. Definitely one of the worst meals that I've ever had.
In addition, this restaurant is dirty, the sauce jars are sticky, you can smell the floor sitting down. I was on my way to Mai's located in downtown Houston for a wonderful fish soup (Lau Ca) and saw this dumpling house and decided to give it a try. My first and last time to this restaurant.
I would rate it a minus 10 if that rating was available.

Auntie Chang was our favorite chinese place in Houston. The only unfortunate thing is their manager. Today we ate there after receiving a coupon at our front door. We went and ate and at the end, the manager decided that he would not honor the coupon, that it was some sort of mistake. a good place doesn't argue with the customer over a very small discount and risks losing repeat business over such dishonest demontstrations of poor integrity. I'm not sure why they give coupons out if they aren't going to honor them. Very bad marketing idea and why we will never go back.

The sauces that come with the dumplings are fantastic, espeically the ginger garlic one. The dumplings alone were very good and the entrees were all excellent. The servings are generous and the price is SO amazingly cheap. Great family meal, we particularly enjoyed the Gen. Tso's.

Lately I've been on a dumpling craze, so I've been hitting up places all around the city. A friend said I should try this place out. So I went on a Saturday for lunch. When I arrived, I had to stand a good 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged my presence. Of course, I ordered the dumpling combo, which came with a side of rice. Two spoons into it, I noticed a long black hair in my food. Utterly disgusted, I told the waiter. Typically, when this happens at other restaurants, your meal's on the house. Not at Auntie Chang's. They wanted to charge me for the rest of my food (which I didn't touch...for some reason, hair in my food kinda makes me lose my appetite). So I refused and offered to pay for my drink. The lady in charge seemed very irritated with me. She didn't even offer an apology. Since then, I have told all of my friends to avoid this place altogether.

I ate 2 dumplings and then my gf noticed a hair in her rice. We told the waiter we would pay for our drinks (we had 2 sodas each). He went to tell the manager and brought us a new ticket with the sodas AND ONE PLATE OF DUMPLINGS!!! We talked to the manager and her response to why we were charged: ""Well there wasn't hair on his plate."" REALLY!! After explaining to her that I wasn't going to eat after seeing that she took off my plate from the ticket as well. So in conclusion HAIR IN THE FOOD and the ATTITUDE was enough for me.

I can understand where some of these reviewers are coming from, Auntie Chang's isn't fancy - but it doesn't try to be. This is not the restaurant I would take a first date to, but it is clean and the staff is always very friendly. I mainly order delivery from here and the online ordering is fast and easy, and they always call to verify my order. They do a great job of meeting special requests and they have never once gotten an order wrong, forgotten something or been late (which is rare in delivery). I have always found the quality of the food to be good and the value for the price paid to be a great deal. Again, we're not talking gourmet Chinese here (which there are several here in Houston but at twice the price) but Auntie Chang's can't be beat on value!!!

My husband and I had only tried Auntie Chang's once before in our 7 years of marriage and I swore to never go back because the dumplings were so bad. Unfortunately I didn't stick to that because we decided to give it another try. We went on a Sunday about 30 minutes after they had opened and there were only two tables occupied. I should have turned and walked out when I noticed how filthy the floors were (I guess they didn't clean up on Saturday night). We sat down and ordered soup, dumplings and an entree. The hot & sour soup was great but it went downhill from there. The dumplings were tough and bland. When our entrees arrived my husband asked me to pass him one of the sauces sitting on the table. I looked at the containers and there was long human hair dried to the outside of the sauces with hair going down into the sauce. I quickly pushed the sauces to the other side of the table along with my plate, my husband did the same. I make it a point of never going to the restroom in restaurants where I eat but since I wasn't going straight home I decided to go. BIG MISTAKE!!! That was the filthiest restroom I have ever used. I guess you can't expect a restroom to be clean when the rest of the restaurant is disgusting. I don't know why people in Houston think Auntie chang's has the best dumplings when the food is so bad and the place needs to be cleaned up. There are better places in Houston for dumplings like Feng Lings on Westheimer, the location past Beltway 8. Once you try their dumplings you will never go back to Auntie Chang's again.

Don't be deceived and think that this house of dumplings actually offers good ones. I ordered the shrimp and the veggie (spinach) dumplings. The shrimp dumplings were totally bland, the dough way too thick, with a weird frozen shrimp fishy taste. The spinach dumplings are literally a wonton wrapper around low quality frozen spinach, the kind that is all stems and no leaves-- and no flavor. I couldn't even swallow that dumpling, it tasted so bad. This place serves very low quality cheap food. They don't even give you chopsticks! The manager was nice and fair, and when he saw that I would leave without eating any of my food, he offered not to charge me for it. He was nice, but the food is so bad, don't go here.

I've been there 3 or 4 times. I don't usually like egg drop soup but my boyfriend ordered it and it was the best I've ever had! The prices range from under two dollars for soup to 10+. There is a large variety of items on the menu and lots of different spices on the table to try. My favorite part is the diet section of the menu. I can get frash steemed veggies and tofu with sauce on the side and not feel like a pig for eating out! Atmosphere is great due to the large windows and little bubbling coy pond/fountain.

I have been to Auntie changs about ten time over the past 5 years or so. Its never anything that really wows you but you can always get a table and its never to crowded. The food is decent, this is not a place that tries to have a fancy presentation. When I go there I always get dumplings and maybe one dish to split with someone. They do not have a large variety of dumplings but they are good. If I remember correctly they have chicken, beef, pork, and maybe shrimp. The thing that I like about this place is that at your table you have a choice of many different sauces that you can use or blend together to make something special. They include, ginger, red chilies in oil, soy, a jalapeno blend, a sweet sauce, and one or two others that I can?t think of now. The place gets a good lunch crowd and is usally slower at night. The place is on the second floor of the shopping center but there is an elevator right in front of the location if you need it.

Auntie Chang's food is really cheap and thats all I can say about. The price you pay for the food is all, your going to get, seriously! If your into cheap food, that make you sick after you eat it this is your place. One good that I can say about this place, is that the delivery service is fast and very nice. But for my self I wont be going back to Auntie Chang's.

I went for a late lunch, and there were three customers in the restaurant yet my meal took almost an hour. The food was disappointing, greasy and very salty. The dumplings were good with a good filling, but again were so greasy even though I ordered them steamed. For a better bet, go to Hunan River down the road.
