Detail for Ho Ho Gourmet : Restaurant,

The Ho Ho is one of THE best Chinese restaurants we have on the St. Paul side of the metro. The food is fresh and consistently good each time we go. We have used them for take out for groups small and large, and have had excellent experiences every time. - mds, 02/14/2010

We, a Chinese-American family from a suburb of St. Paul, had a most unforgettable (in a bad way!) dinner at Ho Ho on Father's Day (June 21, 2009). It was a family meal for 24 in three tables, reserved a week in advance. At the designated time, our entire party arrived and immediately we ordered from the menu at the waitresses' urging, because allegedly, the chef was leaving at 8, in half an hour sharp! (The restaurant closed at 9.) Within 10 minutes, the chef pushed all dishes out at once. They tasted as if they were reheated left-overs from a lunch-buffet table. Following are specific comments on the ordered dishes (all nos. from Ho Ho's menu): #310 Salt baked squid (heavily breaded, oily, reminds me of frozen TV dinners) #53 Black bean chicken (A dish prepared in typical Midwestern American style, while I expected it done in Chinese style, deboned and not much black beans, garlic or red peppers) #49 Hong Kong beef (dry, fatty beef strips, deep-fried days in advance) #317 Beef stew in hot pot (totally overwhelmed by salt) #50 Salt baked American spare ribs (dry, fatty pok strips, also deep-fried days in advance--I thought we ordered RIBS!) #308 Stir-fry seafood combo (tiny shrimps, lots of squids, no scallops) #319 Szechuan eggplant (floating in oil, but it's the only eatable dish because it sits well on a steam-table for hours!) #314 Stir-fry shrimp (tiny shrimps swimming in oil, no favors at all other than being salty) #23 Pork pan-fried noodles (extremely salty pork strips mixed with gluey corn-starch) For more than 12 years, we've had decent experience dining at Ho Ho. We'd considered them one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in town, serving nothing fancy but a home-cook meal. (Their Paypa tofu (#201) used to be their signature dish, but it had so disappointed us 2-3 times that I gave up on it this time.) Henceforth, I vow that I would never return, ever period! To add insult on injury, a service charge of 18% was added to the tab. The service at Ho Ho is certainly nothing to write home about! When I mentioned that overall, the food was too salty, the hostess's response or advice, rather, was: "Next time, you should ask for less salt!" There ain't no "next-time" for me, pal! And I say it with no malice. - StPaulEater, 07/06/2009

The best chinese food in st. paul. - annonymous, 06/21/2006

By far, my favorite chinese food in the twin cities. I'll drive across town for it. - anonymous, 01/17/2004

Even after moving out of the area, we still drive the distance to get take-out. The food is great, portions are large and staff is great. Their egg rolls are the best! - Mary KK, 12/18/2003
