Simply love this place! Family Favorite 7/28/2008

I have been going here for over 10 years. This is the go-to chinese restaurant for my family for all occasions. Great food at great prices. Crispy friend chicken is awesome. Seafood in Bird's Nest is great. Wonderful fish. Most items are great. House special steak leaves a little to be desired, but other than that, this is the place to go in C-town. Pros: Great food, good prices. Cons: Ambiance is not the best. more

Chinatown Locals and Insider's Favorite 6/11/2008

Hop Lee is the Chinese equivalent of a neighborhood French bistro. A comfortable, family friendly place that has been serving its loyal clientele with consistent, high quality food for decades. Classic Cantonese dishes prepared with integrity where freshness, simplicity and straightforward presentation is the order of the day. At Hop Lee its all about the food. Pros: Wonderful Cantonese Cuisine Served with Authenticity and Soul more

simply the worst!!! 12/25/2007

went to hop lee yesterday with two other families and the guy who tried to seat us tried to put 12 people at a table for 8...we decided to split up and sit at 2 tables - not near each other - and deal with it...we get our menus and some tea - which had a lot of things besides tea leaves floating in it - and decide to have wonton soup, cold sesame noodles, roast pork w/broccoli & peking duck....i gave the server the order and he tells me that they're out of cold sesame noodles....hold the phone! it's spaghetti with tahini can they be out??? ok, we're going to deal with it and we decide to change that to steamed dumplings....the waiter comes back and tells us they're out of wonton soup!!! are you kidding me? is this a chinese restaurant??? out of wonton soup??? that's like mcdonald's running out of french fries. all twelve of us leave and go across the street to hop kee and enjoy a magnificant meal of cold sesame noodles, wonton soup (plus wonton/egg drop), spare ribs, roast pork, chinese beef with broccoli, wo shu op duck, shrimp with lobster sauce and much more...too bad hop lee - you missed out on a great check for twelve hungry people Pros: none - never got to eat Cons: poor seating, silverware was very dirty, ran out of wonton soup and cold sesame noodles more

simply the best 8/22/2007

We've seen the owner (a short wrinkly chinese grandpa) sit with the cooks plucking away at the chinese broccoli laughing and talking. He is simply the best, warm, friendly and he remembers faces. Pros: food and service, that's all that really matters at the end. Cons: none. more

Delicious Home-Cooked Cantonese Food 6/28/2007

As an ethnic Chinese person born and bred in the Far East, I can testify that this place serves excellent home-cooked (rather than banquet-style) Cantonese food. My personal favorites are the Sauted Flounder Filets with Squash, Lobster Cantonese-style (with egg and pork), Pea Shoots sauteed in Garlic and Onions, Boiled Chicken with Scallion Sauce and Fried Chicken with Garlic Chips and Soy Sauce (I could just reel off the menu--I haven't had a bad dish yet in over a decade and a half of eating here at least once a month and sometimes more). It can get a bit noisy and crowded at times but the food is worth waiting for. I have brought out-of-town Chinese friends here and had them reminiscing about the Far East after having sampled the cuisine. Moreover, since the prices are relatively inexpensive (even if you go wild, it will cost at most $25 a head; most of the time less) and quantity is relatively hefty. Pros: Consistently excellent home-cooked Cantonese food Cons: Lacks ambiance, booths not for tall people more

Everyone is Family at Hop Lee 3/23/2006

I grew up eating at this restaurant. It's home away from home. The owner, waiters, and chef has remained the same and the food is away served hot, fast, and delicious. The owner is fluent in English, Chinese, and Spanish, so nothing will get by him. Friendly and no BS place. Food is authentic Chinese, no msg and price is inexpensive. You can't get a better deal in Chinatown! Pros: Great Food, Inexpensive more

Excellent Hong Kong/Southern China style dishes 9/15/2005

The food is excellent and authentic Hong Kong/Southern China style dishes. Service is very quick and friendly, although the decoration is so-so. Price is low. The lunch special is $4.95, with one dish, one bowl of rice, and one bowl of soup. The soup does not have much MSG. I highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: Value, Fast, service Cons: decoration more
