Excellent Authentic Chinese Food

I was told about this little gem of a restaurant by a friend that is of Chinese descent. She said that Hop Li has the most authentic Chinese at great prices.
I went for lunch my first time, and ordered the Asparagus and Mango chicken. Delicious. And at under 8.00 it was a lot of food.
The next time I had Beef with black bean sauce. A little boring, as it just had beef and huge pieces of onions and green peppers. But it was really good.

My only disappointment was the sweet and sour chicken, which was my fault for ordering such a common, fast food type dish.

Nice decor, in a cheesy Chinese Restaurant kind of way.

Aside from the gaudy decor, the waiters are amongst the rudest of any restaurant in los angeles! The waiters have a knack for slamming used flatware and silverware in one of the many ""busboy-stops"" conveniently located behind ever other booth..?
If that wasn't enough, THE FOOD COMES WITH MSG! You can ask for ""no-msg"" (small print at the bottom of the menu), but keep in mind they use the same cookware.
Make sure to double check your bill; if I hadn't I would of overpayed by $5.00.

The vacuum restaurant

I have gone to this place a couple of times. The first time was a little after 9:00 in the evening and they started to vacuum the restaurant while my date and I were still in the middle of our dinner! The second time they brought us a plate that we did not order and they almost did not want to take it back and at around 10:00 pm this waither shows up with doggy bags that we didn't request and asked us to pay the bill because the cashier had to leave! We felt insulted and complained with the manager who pretended not to understand English well. If you want to have a very bad service, rude waiters and eat some dust while having dinner I strongly reccomment this place.

The worst dining experience of my life!

I've heard from many Chinese people that JR Seafood is the best place to get Chinese on the Westside, but that my friends is crap. I'm not sure what grade of meat they use at this place but chicken and pork aren't supposed to have a sponge-like texture. And the pork meat inside the dumplings was completely raw and mushy and when I told them that they just refried my half eaten dumpling and the rest of the plate, and guess what? They were still mushy. I ate 2 bites of my dinner and high-tailed it to the nearest In-N-Out. The lady screaming at the table next to us because she returned her inedible food to the kitchen and they still charged her for it sure didn't make for great ambience either.

Very good food, but I wouldn't recommend ordering for delivery.

Decent chinese food in west L.A.

If you live in West Los Angeles and don't feel like driving all the way out to Alhambra/Monterey Park area for chinese seafood, this is a pretty decent place to go. I like the usual and popular dishes like the Lettuce Bun, Live shrimp and lobster, Clam dishes. And the prices are very reasonable.
