“Fantastic food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We went here for dinner on a Saturday evening for my first visit to Ho Wong. The service was attentive and efficient without being intrusive.

In terms of the food, the chicken wings I had for starter were incredible. They had a great taste as well as a texture that was just right. For main course I had crispy shredded chilli chicken which again could not be faulted and egg fried rice which was done perfectly in my opinion. The portions are not as large as some chinese restaurants but they are definitely not small. The atmosphere and decor is good and not too over the top.

The restaurant is relatively expensive compared to other chinese restaurants but you do feel like the extra money really does justify the quality of the food and the service and it isn't ridiculously expensive, just more than your average chinese restaurant.

If I had one criticism it would be that the service was all pretty fast but not excessively so.

I can't wait to go back.

“Chicken Yuk Sung oh Yeah ,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Went with a crowd of mates before a WBO championship boxing match ,Booked the private room.

Starters and sizzling platters to share absolutly amazing .There was half a dozen staff on hand for about 22 Guests they were there but non intrusive and very professional.

Our glasses were never empty and extra portions and any request was not too much trouble .

The reason its not a 5 is its a wee bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion .

“Great Food, Service needs to be slower........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have eaten in a variety of chinese restaurants around the UK. The food here is fantastic. The service though is too fast..... Ask them to give you at least 15mins between starters and main course and you will be fine. Freshly made, lots of flavour. Can't fault the food. Decor too needs updating.....

“Best chinese meal I have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have eaten here on several occasions now and it is without a doubt the best chinese food I have ever had in my life. It is truly amazing!!

The restuarant is beautiful - a really relaxing and sophistocated atmosphere!

The meals come served on hot plates to keep the food hot which I absolutely love and you have the choice of eating with chopsticks or cutlery. Personally I use the cutlery as I am hopeless with chopsticks!!

Every time I visit Glasgow I try to make a point of eating here as it's first class.
