I thought all Ho Ho are same but my friend recommanded me to go this Ho Ho. They can make Dim Sum anything when you want to and they have real chinese foods intead of american chinese foods.
I would recommand anybody who are searching real Chinese foods. if you need somebody to serve on your table and be your company, maybe this is not the place you want to be but looking for good chinese foods, this is the place!!
Very busy I suggest you go before 11 am or after 1 pm weekdays for lunch specials till 3 pm
Saturdays and Sundays are packed till pm no lunch specials on weekends
you may just want to order takeout ahead on weekends
the only con is they use too much MSG I always say no MSG or avoid it if possible

What a horrible experience at Ho Ho Gourmet last night!
I will never go there again!
I placed an order to go and while parked in the parking lot waiting for the order to be filled, a crazy asian lady, who I presume works at the restaurant pounded on my window, while yelling and screaming at me. I opened the window and caught that she didn't want me to park in the parking lot. I tried to explain I was waiting for an order to go and she still continued to yell at me, in partially understandable language.
I walked in side to find someone reasonable and found a nasty staff that had no concern for the unprofessional behavior from this crazy lady!
I am absolutely appalled at this utterly unprofessional behavior and service.
I recommend Cafe Tran in Murray for the best food you will have!

What happened ? The food is still good the
I went in day after Thanksgiving, The hostess was on one that day!
I have been eating here almost 20 years but not as often as before I always tip 20% or more the servers and hostess were like in a trance or the twilight zone?
I waited over 20 min for my order after finally flagging someone to take my order 1 item!
Finally I put my coat back on walked up to hostess
and said ""CANCEL MY ORDER""
No apology I doubt I will go back
What happened to customer service?

I love this place! My husband introduced me to it about a year ago and ever since we have gone there multiple times! The dining room is nothing fancy but believe me the food will make up for it 10 fold! Peking Spare Ribs, Beef with Flat Noodle, Orange Chicken, and General Taos Chicken are some of our all time favorites here! Everything is served with a side of sticky rice. The people there are so nice! Be warned though, once you try it, you will be craving it at least once a week!!! Soo addicting! Just wish I didn't live so far away!
Always love this place for the food. Friendly, authentic, always plenty of food and reasonable prices. Plenty of vegetables and meat in the dishes you like. Everything tastes great and they are always busy. If you don't want MSG ask them not to put it in. The Ho Ho Gourmet on state street is the best. The other Ho Ho Gourmet in North Salt Lake is not affiliated with them nor is it as good.

The restaurant itself is a bit of a ""hole in the wall"" but the food is great! We have often found that the best food is found in restaurants such as these. We ordered the cream cheese wontons and potstickers for appetizers and were very pleased with both. The wontons were delicious and the potstickers also very tasty and were much bigger than any potstickers I've had at any restaurant. Then we ordered the ham fried rice, mushrooms & beef, and the sweet & sour chicken for dinner. Everything was great! The fried rice was spectacular, the beef was very tasty and the chicken was fabulous. The chicken was actual white chicken breasts, not what we like to call ""mystery meat"", and the breading was perfectly crispy, even after sitting in the sauce. We were very pleased with our experience there and will definitely return!

One of the best most authentic chinese restaurants I have had in a long time outside of China. Restaurant has very good authentic dishes for the more adventurist diner, however, if you want good old amercanized standby's, this is the place for you, also. When you first walk in it seems to exude the label ""whole in the wall"", however, once you settle there is a relaxed atmosphere that the servers seem to encourage. I had read a previous review that persons of Asian background had priority over all others, however, did not experience that here at all. Wanted that to be VERY clear about this place. Unfair. I recommend the Salt Crusted Shrimp and the Shanghai chicken. Dim Sum dishes are authentic and some of the best I have had slumin in New York China Town. Found this place from recommendation of Chinese friends at work. Nuff said.

This is as good as it gets in Salt Lake. And some dishes are fantastic by any standard. The steamed or fried whole fish is great, along with the steamed bass with bean sauce. The staff is efficient and even friendly. Although they are rushed when the place is packed at certain times. Their special menu items are very good and all food is fresh and prepared to order. Go for the food not the decor.

I have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant that served Cantonese style dishes in SLC and I think I finally found it, I tried their Beef in Oyster Sauce, Chicken Chow Mein, Char Shui (Buns with BBQ pork)(sorry about my chinese), Wong Tong
Until now in my quest for a good Cantonese restaurant this is the place to go, may not look good from the outside, but the food and the service were amazing. It's been only 4 days and I am already craving for chinese food.
I rate Ho-Ho gourmet even higher than Mandarin at Bountiful, which is supposed to be the best Chinese at SLC.

One of the few authentic dim sum servers in the Salt Lake valley. Good variety on Saturdays. Sit by the kitchen in order to be first in line as the carts come out or they are picked over by the time they go by the first few tables and they turn around and go back to the kitchen without reaching the end of the line tables. As a result you wait for a long time for each offering. If you don't see what you want on the carts, just ask the server and they can bring an individual serving out to you. Atmosphere is not the most pleasing with respect to sanitation or decor. More like a cheap restaurant. For good service and a more attractive dim sum experience, patronize the Hong Kong on 4th South west of the Gateway.

I was a little intimidated when I first tried Ho-Ho Gourmet. I don't have much experience with dim sum and the restaurant was extremely crowded and very busy. I tried a few different dishes like shrimp dumplings and steamed buns with pork filling. All the dishes I tried were either really good or fantastic. I wasn't sure what each one was and the staff wasn't extremely friendly but they were helpful. I will definitely try the restaurant again based on the food experience alone.

This is as real as it get's folks! With a 100% chinese staf on hand, how could you expect anything but authentic? This is the place for people who like ""real"" chinese food. Come on Saturday or Sunday during lunch and have the entire dim sum menu rolled right up to your table ---just like in any Dim Sum place in Hong Kong. If asthetics is really that important to you---plan ahead and make arrangements to use the dining room upstairs with the big screen TV. -Try the Egg Custard- my fav-

Well you may want to be warned, this is one of the more authentic Chinese resteraunts in Salt Lake City or anywhere outside of Newyork or California for that matter. If you are adventerous or would like to try the real thing come here. Most Americans are turned off by the exotic choices offered here. Those who give it a chance, however, are very satisfied. The food is delicous. Chicken feet taste much better than they sound. And if you go for the stuff you are used to finding in the US, you will find it is prepared with great skill. Excellent place. A little crowded and not the nicest facility but a great place to eat none the less.

What a great restaurant! I've heard about this Ho Ho Gourmet for a long time but I don't get into town very often. I think I'll make the trip every Saturday for a while! My first impression was that this place is full of bustle and movement. It was interesting watching the food go by and the dim sum being offered on trays. Another thing I noticed is that 90% of the people here are Asians.
I ordered the Hong Kong Beef which is brazed beef strips in a red ginger sauce. I've had the same thing at Sampan and Ho Ho has the better of the two. The sauce was great and the cuts of meat were very tasty and tender. The dim sum I tried, just the pork buns this time, was first rate. I'll definately be back as often as I can manage it.
