This restaurant was recommended to us when we asked about local fare. They have many wonderful dishes, but favorite is the beef and green beans with homemade garlic sauce. I think I could eat if for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

I am very picky about my Chinese food and this place is perfection. Their food isn't drowned in sauce, so if you're eating pork you can actually taste the pork! They are always right on with their estimated delivery time. My favorites here are the sizzling rice soup, pecking pork, and crab puffs. They've become a taunt day tradition.

I like this place, the service is just average but the food is good. And they don't use MSG as I recall.

On a recent visit to Marina, we had lunch and dinner here. Food was good, flavors were right. Service was slow and lacking. There were hardly any customers at the time. It would be a shame if this place doesn't do better.

Ate here last year and loved the place. This time was not as good as last year. The sweet and sour pork was great. The pork fired rice fair and the mixed chow mein was bland. Food was OK. Not great as last year.

I dined at this Establishment with my Doctor for an afternoon Lunch. The Atmosphere was comfortable and the Place is clean. What was a turn off was the very unfriendly service from the Waiter. He was horrible! The Food was mediocre and nothing special but wasn't bad either. The Bill for 2 of Us at Lunch was excessive and very... More

If you like good Chinese take-out food, go elsewhere! Food is greasy. The hot and sour soup is hot and sweet, and I actually spit it out. Worst anywhere. Sorry to be so negative, but I even gave them another chance after an ownership change and... same ol', same ol'.

Our recent return to HO-wah was a little disappointing. We ordered the salt and pepper fish which we ordered in the past and just loved it. But this time it was smothered in jalapeño peppers and was just too spicy hot, so advise them when ordering of your preference and they will accommodate. We also had their won ton soup... More

The Restaurant is very clean and has a nice Atmosphere. Service was alright and Food arrived quickly. As far as taste it wasn't bad but also not extra ordinary. Just average. As far as the price it is a little inflated for Marina and the quality of Food.
