Fortune Cookie: "The House Lo Mein will make your tummy smile "

Food was not really good like I have tried much better, ended up taking it home. Won't be able to recommend this time because at least my plate was not acceptable , maybe I ordered the wrong...

Mrs. Ho runs the front and her husband cooks a great variety of Asian food, mild to wild, to your preference. The servings are generous and it arrives quickly, freshly cooked, and in the usual Chinese atmosphere.

Group of 10 received prompt and attentive service. Broccoli chicken was great; not-so-much for cashew chicken.

This place is horrible. There are no nice words to describe it. Even the owner is rude and mean. Head South for better Chinese food!

We always have a great meal here at China House. Kathy Ho is a no nonsense owner and the food is fantastic each time. Love the hot tea. Rice is perfectly done, egg rolls great, and meals Re always fresh and just as ordered. Love that they have Thai on their menu and for the price, the experience is a... More

So the owner lacks in social skills, kind of cookoo, seems a bit rude unintentionally, but it is actually funny! They have really fresh cuisine and our family gets take out at least 1-2x a month. You get a lot for not much, really important with a house of growing boys. Yummy Lo Mein hands down!

My husband and I have really grown to love this place. Honestly, we don't know much about Chinese food and usually go to buffets so we can try a variety of things. We've been here three times now and have found things we really enjoy. The House Lo Mein is so good -- especially the "spicy" version. Large portions, quick... More

I went after recommendations but students, but it was the absolute worst Chinese food I have ever tasted - worse than any buffet even. I ordered a simple dish that I get most everywhere that is a good barometer, and it was completely tasteless and way overpriced.

China house offers tasty Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine, ample portions, and quick service at affordable prices. Husband and wife owned and operated. This is a hometowner's dream restaurant in "small-town East Texas". For one with a moderate mindset, it's Excellent!
