I have eaten excellent Chinese food in Hong Kong and Thailand, but not in Boulder. I admit when I'm looking for fast Chinese, I am willing to eat Panda, which I would rate as Average/3. This place, even though the owners are Chinese , is less than that, but not terrible. Poor/2. Fried rice oh no, noodles looked like spaghetti,... More

I have only every eaten the lunch combination meals here. Very affordable. I don't think it tastes particularly good, and you don't get a ton of food. The meat can be chewy, the vegetables are overcooked, the noodles are awful. Service is very fast. For a $4.50 lunch that you will be eating 30 seconds from the moment you walk... More

Menu pricing provided online are 15-20% less than those charged. Various webpages contain their menu however none I could find are anywhere near up to date with the prices charged. When asked they claim I must have been looking at the lunch prices and that the menu prices I was looking at online were 10 years old. Thus, they are... More

"If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything." OK Mom..., but...., in this day and age, people depend on others to be honest about their experiences and honestly, these people have some things to learn about service. I believe it was because we looked like we were common workers, a couple of regular dudes, one Indian, one... More

We like having lunch here because they always prepare our favorite dishes the way we like them! We really enjoy their Hot and sour soup, cheese wontons, tofu in sesame sauce, shrimp lo main and orange chicken, we like to add vegetables to any dish! Food is never underdone, Very tasty every single time! We keep going back.

This place got a couple good reviews here and on Yelp as a local hole-in-the-wall, so I thought it would be worth a try. It wasn't. Undistinguished Americanized Chinese carry-out, not even well-prepared. The shrimp lo mein had a heavy brown sauce, but was passable. The firecracker chicken had a heavy, syrupy brown sauce, with gristly chicken, thick with dough.... More

I have been eating @ Haoway for about 14 years. The owners Quinn and Van are amazing. The food is always fresh because they go through so much of it. I see delivery trucks there all the time. I recommend anything on the menu but if you don't see something you like just ask and they'll do their best to... More

I had the moo shu tofu and it was well-prepared but kind of boring. It was supposed to include four pancakes, but these were tortillas! My friend's son had the fried dumplings - those looked very good and had a really interesting dipping sauce. My freind had the Szechuan chicken - chicken was cooked well and the vegetables were crisp-tender.... More
