Not our usual Chinese but due to time constraints decided to grab some take away here. Most disappointing. Just very very ordinary. There are better places to eat in Engadine. I wish it had been different.

We revisited Ho Ho Cantonese to give it antother try as it is convenient to Club Engadine(RSL). We tried the Combination Hor Fun (like Combination Chow Mein with thick noodles). Also had mixed entree and a small fried rice. The food was good and the waiter Gordon is very friendly and helpful.

When new owners first took over this restaurant we were very impressed. The fried rice was deliciously jewelled with lapchong and other authentic ingredients, a lot of the gimmicky Aussie-nese items were removed from the menu and the service was so much warmer than before. Many months later and the quality of the food (lacklustre fried rice included) and service... More

I have been a very loyal customer of Ho Ho since it opened many years ago. The original owner Geoff ran an amazing restauraunts and we dined here weekly, take away or eat in. Geoff sold his business to Ricky and the food and service was still wonderful. It's been sold again and I'm very sorry to say they have... More

Used to be my favourite Chinese restaurant, streets ahead of the other restaurants in Engadine. But not any more. Since it changed hands the food is average at best. My wife used to like their Chicken Chow Mein, so did I but what they served up was the most bland food I had tasted and the fried rice was also... More

Ho Ho Restaurant now under new management. Ordered Combination Chow Mein and Fried Rice. Food didn't taste as good as before and serves were small. New menus and tiny crockery (hard to fit food on small plates). Waiter was friendly. No more complimentary fortune cookies. Very disappointed to have to write this review. Will have to find a new chinese... More

Restaurant is under new management since my last review. The decor has been upated and Ho Ho still serves the best Chinese food in town. The mixed entree, short soup with won tons and steamed dim sims are delicious. I still can't go past the Combination Chow Mein, Rusty Nails and Fried Rice for value and flavour.

Ho Ho has the best Chinese food I have tasted in Australia. They have an extensive menu of dishes with large servings at reasonable prices. The service is fast and friendly. The décor is basic but warm, clean and comfortable. The best Combination Chow Mein I have ever tasted and another popular specialty is the Rusty Nails. My friends and... More
