Conflicting feedback

Too many locals have advised against this place. I would like some evidence to prove them wrong. Desperate to have a good Chinese restaurant in Blackheath....any help and hope out there?

Waitress was lovely. We loved the decor very genuine 'oldschool' decor that reminded me of my childhood... but the food was pretty gross to be honest. Salty covered in sauce. Felt sick after...😑

I am pretty surprised how Ho's stays open. It is regularly empty and the food is pretty ordinary. I have had combo fried rice on each occasion with the request for no prawns - and on 4 occasions i have found a heap of prawns. The lemon chicken and Beef Satay are as you would expect - gualo to the... More

The food is neither bad or great. I wasn't wowed or disappointed. Ho's was just a bit ho hum. Probably perfect for a takeaway special fried rice and the obligatory bag of prawn crackers.

Dined here with a few friends over the snowy weekend. The waitress seemed tried and stressed but she did a great job taking care of us. The food was average, probably wouldn't eat here again.

The food that my wife and I had here today was terrible. We both felt ill after our meal, although my stomach did settle down after a while. The food tasted awful. I should have stopped after the first mouthful. I'm not fussy, but this was one of the worst eating experiences of my life.

The first thing that needs to be hi-lighted is the decor - which is FANTASTIC (please don't ever change). The food is tasty, good quality "Australian" Chinese. I don't think the owners purport to be supplying anything else. The negative reviews are a little mystifying but I don't think all of the authors based their opinion on an actual visit... More

We have been coming to Blackheath for many years, and a beer in the pub and a meal at Ho's has always been part of the sojourn. I was a little concerned when reading the latest reviews, re Ho's as we have always enjoyed the food in the past. We were delighted to find it unchanged..yes some may find the... More

From my experience here, I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a reasonably economical Chinese meal. It's true that there's nothing about the food that sets it apart from scores of other Chinese restaurants, but it's certainly tasty and the standard is perfectly acceptable. . The waiting staff in this Chinese owned and operated eating house seemed to... More

Ho's clearly hasn't impressed many reviewers but I wonder how many actually ate there or ever went back... These places have a habit of changing hands and getting better or worse without appearing outwardly different, which perhaps explains our positive experience despite initial misgivings. It's obvious Ho's was put together in the 80's (as celebrated on their billboard) and ridden... More
