“If you like Asian food do not miss.”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

The menu is varied with Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai selections.
The portions are generous and of very high quality. The Vietnamese Spring Rolls (six) are excellent and highly recommended. There are combination platters and Phos in large bowls, other selections are easily for more then one. Service was very good and prices reasonable. The restaurant is in a mall but well marked. The dining room is spacious and pleasantly decorated and well lit.

“Best Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant in the city”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I love going to Hop Tung. They have great lunch specials and their menu always has great options to choose from. It's a nice atmosphere-relaxed and calm. The staff are a bit rude at times, but they are on top at getting what you need. The prices are affordable so it's the perfect place for a brief business meeting or a date night.

“BEST CHINESE/VIETNAMESE IN MCALLEN / RUDE OWNER”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

Food is excellent! any dish you order must be good!
But the OWNERS (wife and husband)
the wife is nice
but this man is really rude!
My experience: I ordered to go and he ordered me to sit down, I said I was Ok, and he insisted, I said I worked all day and did not want to sit, then he told me to wait outside.
Can you believe it?
AGAIN EXCELLENT FOOD!
TRY ANY SOUP!

“good food,poor service, menacing owners”
Reviewed May 24, 2011

Eaten here many times. good food,but service very spotty. Any complaint or inquiry is greeted by owner with anger and hostility.Last time waited 45 minutes when no one else in restaurant while take out order prepared for someone else. Would eat at McDonalds before I set foot in there again.
Owner is the biggest a-hoIeI have seen in the world.
