Pretty Good!

Waitress was rude. Another party asked her to take a picture for them and although she was busy which is understood she didnt have to make them feel like they were asking for the impossible and yelling she was busy.

Stumbled onto Hop Louie attracted by Chinese architecture. We decided to go in for a meal. Restaurant is upstairs, a bar downstairs. Red carpet on stairs needs replacing but fine when you get to restaurant area. Done out in typical Chinese style looks good. We ordered the "family meal special for 2"......cost $18.55 all inclusive....soup, entree, 4 mains. Meal and... More

I stopped in late evening, ordered take out and waited for its preparation in the bar downstairs..The bartender was cool; one of those grouchy-cares about you more than shows-by the time you leave you want to spend all day with-types. I'd heard about Hop Louies from friends and finally went to find it a classic, (albiet very 'cool') Chinese restaurant... More

Most places serve a variation noticeably thickened with cornstarch or have... More

When we walked in the place it wreaked of cigarettes, that should have been our 1st clue not to stay. Went upstairs to the dining room &... More

There are a lot of good Chinese places in chinatown of course, but most people rank this one at or near the top of the list for quality and a true chinatown experience. Located in the tallest pagoda in chinatown, it's building itself is a landmark and cool to check out even if you don't eat there. The bar down... More

It's not "real" Chinese, but it's still fun.
