As a Chinese, I am shamed for this place. Reasons:\r
1. Liers. Tell you something that they will not do.\r
2. Cheater. Check your bill before you pay, they charge you more than the menu price.\r
3. Nasty people. Especially a short thin

The fried rice is brown because it has MSG in it! Just ask them. If you prefer to eat your food without chemical enhancements, ask them to use the white rice instead. In regards to the rest of the menu, the food is average. Not disappointing nor unforgettable. Just average. The prices are decent and the people are nice.

I have been eating dim sum since I was a little kid. My family used own a restaurant and I make dim sum myself. When it comes to Chinese food I am picky. Therefore this is coming from an Chinese food expert. Here goes. I was disappointed in the restaurant. The food lack taste, the noodles were burnt and the meat was too dry. The food was not very authentic either.

I have frequented this restaurant since I was a child. The food is fresh and not greasy. The restaurant is clean and provides prompt and friendly service. The best item on the menu is their egg rolls. The egg rolls here do not leave the greasy aftertaste that so many others do. And like the other reviewer said, their fried rice is actually brown.

ho ho choy simply cant compete when you have china buffet, the new big guy in town. ho ho choy, although fun and genuine, has recently had a wave of dirty plates, higher prices, unfriendly service and poor tasting food. in addition, they need a buffet if they want to sttay in business.

PROS: genuine chinese food
CONS: high prices, dirt plates, poor service, no buffet style

We have been visiting Ho Ho Choy for years. Thier lunch specials always seemed to draw a crowd. The food was always good and wait staff, friendly. I have noticed however that my dining experiences haven't been as enjoyable lately. I'm not sure if the cooking staff has changed, but the food hasn't been nearly as good as it used to be. It seems like every dish has a fishy taste (maybe too much fish sauce added) - even when it's a chicken dish. I would like to see this restaurant succeed, but with the arrival of the "big dogs" like Paul Lee's and P.F. Changs, they will have to work a bit harder to stay in the game.

This is the best chinese food in Tampa Bay. They've been at the same location for 20 years and with the same head chef (I was lucky enough to chat it up with one of the managers). For the food and value this is hands down the best in the Bay. Loved their General Tso Chicken, Pu Pu Platter for the appetizer, and their fried rice is actually brown!
