“Food court quality at restaurant prices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

A resort area restaurant that is 90% empty at 7 p.m. on a summer Friday was our first clue that Huo might not be a great choice, but we threw caution to the winds and decided to give this place a try. True, other restaurants seemed to be busy, but after all, TripAdvisor reviews were decent and some were even glowing in praise of this Chinese place. Perhaps their dinner crowd typically arrives a bit later in the evening.

Maybe it was a bad night. Maybe the regular chef was not working. Whatever the explanation, my son and I chose a single order of egg rolls, one order of lo mein and one order of beef with sesame and orange (all standard stuff from Huo's not very innovative menu). Service was fine and the presentation was as well. Unfortunately, nothing rose above "just OK" and both of us agreed that we would not order the same dishes again.

The above food, plus 2 beers came to $51, NOT including tip. Many shopping mall food courts have a Chinese place that can match the quality of food we had. . . .at less than half the price. Sorry, Huo's. Empty tables at 7 on a beautiful summer Friday evening? There just might be a message there.

In the hope that our experience was not typical, I will try Huo's again in the future.

“Over priced and very bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Let me start by saying the service and ambiance were great. Let me finish by saying, it is the worst food I have eaten in a long time and I will never go back.

“A corrective review required”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. It's just not that great. The room itself is very nice -- dark browns and reds -- with a huge terrace. There were only a few tables other than us, but the kitchen was painfully slow. Everything was homemade, but not by great cooks. Our lo mein noodle dish had been soaked in soy sauce to the point of being inedible. The lemon shrimp was quite nice, as was the chicken in black bean sauce, but the crispy beef had no trace of the promised orange flavour and there was far more 'crisp' than beef. Overall, disappointing.

“Finally, a Chinese food resto in Tremblant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We were eager to try Huo, as we both love Chinese food, and our summer place is walking distance to the restaurant.

We were given a very friendly welcome, and Caroline took good care of us at our table.

The wonton soup seems to be homemade and very good. The Hunan dumplings were great, with a very tasty sauce.

We shared the beef and broccoli, and chicken lo mein. The lo mein was great, but the beef/brocolli lacked something.

It's also a bit pricey, but we will be returning for another dinner.
