Chef Ho's exceeded my expectations. We tried several dishes and I could not decide which was my favorite. I did not know how delicious Peking duck could be !! The crispy shrimp, Ho's beef and Sesame chicken were all fabulous. The fried pork dumplings -...More

I occasionally order Chinese food, on these particular night I mostly will choose chef ho's because of the fried pork dumplings. Simply the Best.

We were a group of 5. Peking duck was perfect for our table. Fried rice was also ok. The waitress did recommend some dishes.

Had lunch at Chef Ho's today. My first time at the restaurant and I was certainly not disappointed. 4 of us shared 4 dishes and they all were very good.

This once reliable old-time Chinese is showing its age. On a slow night, service was grumpy and food, except for the still excellent Peking duck, was ho-hum.

They don't serve Peking Duck. They serve used, refried duck. I am so sick of Chinese restaurants pretending to serve real Peking Duck and instead passing off old fried duck as genuine. This place is a rip-off. The rest of the food is banal boring...More
