This place has been around for like 15+ years and they are famous for their Chinese Chicken Salad. I would recommend you get that the first time for sure. Great location, great food.

The only thing I have EVER had is the Ho Sum Bistro Chicken Salad.....it is so good. Restaurant is small. Perfect for lunch. Very easy to take-out the salad also and serve at home.

Newport Beach is filled with casual food possibilities and this one isn't right on the water or in a particularly special location but it was packed for lunch on an April weekday when most other places were almost empty.

I love the Ho Sum salad. It's a Chinese chicken salad that's delicious. A half-order fills you up! The service is always friendly.

we were pleasantly surprised at the service and food at the Ho Sum Bistro. Though they advertise having dim sum on the menu, the choices for dim sum were few and pricey, considering we do dim sum often. We ended up having a few dim sum items just to check them out and the rest were more traditional stir fry... More

This is my first time here and I will definitely be back again. Was very satisfied with there famous combo salad, probably could have had that as my whole meal. But also ordered the pepper chicken, flavorful, not to hot or spicy. Finished off lunch with a chocolate dipped fortune cookie :)
