The food was good. The food was served efficiently and the servers were not rude but they seem like they hate what they are doing. Its hard to tell whether they hate their job, their boss, their customers or maybe even their life. Some suggestions; Instead of grunting and pointing to a seat. It might be better if you said...

Dreadful service, poor quality food, rude staff! as my dad said Basil Fawlty has nothing on this place! Don't be fooled by the nice interior design and it being busy! The staff not once smiled at us and slammed down the menus and the food! the portion sizes where massive! we could of easily shared one main between the three... More

Customer service was ok. Bathrooms were not very clean. Place smelled slightly of chilled seafood, which didn't bother me. I ordered Szechuan beef. It was perfectly spicy for my taste and the beef was tender and tasty. Others with me ordered Kung pao chicken and it had nice flavor. No real complaints. This is a fine place to grab a... More

I got yelled at while trying to place a telephone order. I was asked repeatedly to announce my phone #. After 3-4 tries. I asked the lady to listen while i was giving out my #. Not to talk over me. She screamed and I hung up. This is about the third or fourth time that the person who answered... More

I have visited this restaurant twice in the last several months. I came the second time to verify my earlier finding s. New Ho has fallen in quality. Of the 4 dishes we ordered 2 were decent and 2 were horrible. The Cantonese chow mein us usually delicious, it was tasteless as was one other dish.

We went to new ho King late on a Thursday night. The dishes were very underwhelming: bland in flavour, covered in unappealing gelatinous liquid and for the price, very small servings. On top of that, we were automatically charged gratuity. We were only two people, the service was simply bad and there was no warning of added gratuity on the... More

Very poor service. With regard to food, it was not fresh (bad smell) and there appeared to be non food items in the dishes, including a piece of gravel in the soup!!!! . Walked out in disgust. Wandering why this place is still in business. Will never return!

Service was quick and food was delicious! The Water Cress soup was awesome! They made a special BBQ Pork pineapple Fried Rice for us which was excellent! There were many chef's specialties to choose from as well!

DO NOT count on your food arriving in a reasonable timeframe. Took 2 hrs for dinner to come and didn't offer a discount or honour late night menu prices as the time of delivery was considered well into late night. Never going to order or go there in person again.

Ok, this is an old school restaurant with above average decor - if that is important to you. If you're like me, just a clean restaurant with good food is all that I request. It all depends on who is your server, some are good and some are unfriendly, but we don't come here for the service, go the mandarin... More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
