“too many times”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

MY teenage kids like Ho-Lee-Chow so I order it from time to time when I don't feel up to cooking. They like it...I tolerate it. Their delivery is always good & quick. It's quite expensive & I always find myself thinking this will be the last time......

“Expensive, bad food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

The food didn't taste good, at all. The rice had a weird burnt taste, two of the dishes tasted identical even though they were very different. Spare ribs very very fatty, just over all a bad meal and not worth the price.

I should add that my husband really enjoyed it, but he will eat anything.

“Noodles like earthworms and tastless chicken”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

This place is not called Great Chow. It is the worst Chinese takeaway in Kingston. The noodles were thick and soggy like earth worms and the sauces were pretty tasteless.

“Gross”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

We got food that we couldn't eat. The taste of the entire meal was peculiar and unnatural. They don't put MSG in their food so that must be what is missing.
