We visited Hoshun Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue once for a couple of drinks and again to try some of their menu offerings. We passed the place quite a few times while heading to and from our hotel and into the French Quarters and while touring the neighborhood.

Hoshun is quite expansive in size and makes use of the space relatively well with its traditional décor and furniture arrangement. A bar is located towards the back for those who prefer a more informal seating. The property certainly has enough space to accommodate a large number of customers but the drawback is, if there is one, that the space can also be misleading as they were immensely empty during our visits. Hoshun doesn’t classify itself as merely a Chinese restaurant, rather, it considers as being an establishment that serves and draws its cuisine from a few South Asian countries. This is fairly evident from the menu offerings which range from sushi, pho soups, to pad thai noodles.

We tried one of their combination beef entrees and a noodle dish but did not dine in and, instead, took it with us to our hotel. First, the portions, from one dish alone, was certainly enough, actually perfect, for two people. This is, of course, something that has become an issue at quite a few similar establishments where we are from in NYC. Second, aside from not being overly greasy, both entrees were flavorful and cooked quite properly.

We intended on going back one last time prior to our departure but, and as always, did not get the chance. We definitely wouldn’t think twice of visiting Hoshun when we make our way back to that part of New Orleans again.

We returned from a long day and decided to stop in. Very nicely decorated and clean, many families and couples were there eating. We had shrimp and vegetables with rice and an egg roll or crab ragoon for about $14, and it was delicious! Lots of shrimp and one of the best egg rolls I've ever eaten! We recommend you enjoy it too!!

Great place to go when you've stayed out late but still want a nice relaxing meal. We ate there twice while we were visiting and enjoyed both meals! Food was just as good at 12:30 am as it was at 9:00 pm several nights earlier.

My second visit since 2010 and the food and service is still excellent.We had the whole red snapper fried with tomato and ginger sauce,it was a huge fish,well worth the $32.00.I would have prefer a Thai red curry coconut sauce,found out after i could have requested it,will do on next trip,also had some sushi rolls.Hoshun is my favorite restaurant in NOLA.

We enjoy Chinese food and decided to have a meal their. Since it is also a buffet type of arrangement we could make our own choice and therefore enjoyed the food. The restaurant was nearly empty but cosy, with pleasant people and good service.
