Best Chinese food!

We were in Marina and decided to stop in as we have been looking for a good Chinese food place around the Monterey area forever. We were greeted by a really nice lady and seated immediately. The food was fresh, hot and flavorful. The vegetables are so fresh it was as if they had taken them... read more

New owners and new cook with better tasting food. Had Beef and broccoli entree and vegetable was very fresh meat was tender. The waitress suggested their house special which was asparagus and beef which tasted wonderful. Prices are very good and I would frequent this restaurant again.

The first time we had Ho-Wah, we had it delivered, which was so great. Of the several times we have eaten there, we haven't had anything we didn't enjoy. Garlic chicken, General Tso fried rice and lo mein noodles. Always get pot stickers and egg rolls. We love our Chinese food! My only complaint (and this seems to be the... More

I have dined at Ho Wah several times now since the new Ownership took over. The Food is OK and the Atmosphere in the Restaurant has greatly improved. Cleaned up with new paint and Carpet. However the Owner's seem to inflate the Bills by adding on Gratuity for themselves. I caught onto to this after my last visit here with... More

I really enjoyed this place. I had never been before but our first choice was closed. It was very fortunate. Easy parking, easy navigation. GREAT Eggplant and Chicken. I plan to return. If everything else is as good this will become a regular stop when I go to Marina.

This restaurant had a wide variety of menu items. Each of our choices was delicious. I though it strange the entrees did not include the usual sides (ie: no combo with soup, egg roll, or even white rice to accompany the dish)...all the sides are ala carte. Worth the trip and the money.

I've been to Ho-Wah twice now and each time it was great. A great homemade authentic Chinese meal that is hard to find in my area. Prices are reasonable and the staff was great too. Very clean enviroment as well. Can't wait to go back!

As some have mentioned, this place has a large "under new management" sign on the front. The food was good, but not great. Too many vegetables; not enough meat. If they wouldn't be cheap with the meat, it would be a lot better, as the taste was good.
