We decided to endulge in a little...ok a lot...of chinese food one Saturday hung over evening and came away very disheartened. The food taste like the first juice on a new born calf. I would strongly urge you to stay away from the brocoli and beef. This eater is not real up to date on health code, but the contents in our to go order seemed to be five days old.

All in all, this is not a place we will return. I would stay away.

I started eating at Hi Hat almost 20 years ago. Back then the prices were cheap, the portions were huge and the food was great! Now the portions are still big and the prices are still reasonable but the food isn't nearly so good. In fact, the last time we went there my mom and dad got food poisoning.

I was born in Tigard and have been eating at this resturant since I can remember eating! My kids love it, my out of town family love it so much, that we drive there from Vancouver during all there visits. And while your there say hi to Greta! The food is excellent, fast & large portions for a very good price!

Have been coming to this restaurant for years and is good choice for the price but it is standard faire for chinese food. No great specialties to offer but good enough portions and the service is always nice.

They have a good banquet facility, which I know since my grandfather attended many bowling and Eagles functions here.

Located easily off 99W to your right as you are heading to Portland right before the Newport Bay restaurant.

I have been here many times, since the 1960's. It's not a classical Chinese restaurant, but it's OK. Never order the fried shrimp. I don't know how they can get so much old grease into such a small shrimp, and cook it to death. I feel they were yesterdays cooked shrimp, re-warmed up in two week old oil, and I dare you to find the actual shrimp, in all that greasy cornstarch. The shrimp here has always been this way. Other items on their menu are from good to very good, such as Chow Mein, and Chow Don. My wife is Chinese, and she will never set foot in this place, but I like it. I don't like the food you get in China. It's disgusting, what the food is like in China. Some people can take it, but I can't. I'm glad for places like the Hi Hat.

Pros: Lots of parking. I have never been here when the restaurant was full, or too busy.

Cons: Exiting to the street is very very dangerous.

The service was slow and the food wasn't that great. I've been here a few times (take-out and eating at the restaurant) and the quality was very inconsistent.

The Hi Hat has come along way since 1954. The food is very true to the way MR. Louie wanted it to be. They family still runs the resturant. It was the Sister to the HOUSE OF LOUIE in china town. I love the HI HAT's HOUSE CHOW MEIN its the best. You will find Calvin seating you, Melvin cooking your dinner, Mary getting you the hot plates, Gretta(best waitress you will ever find) Telling the stories of the past, & Beverly helping at the front desk that the family is still making sure that nothing goes overlooked. The Louie family has been a part of the city for over 50 years. Now can you find any other place with that much to offer. Go check it out I am very sure you will find that Tigards HI HAT is the Best tigard has to offer and so much more...

Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Clean and Bright

I guess after a certain point you realize that you're in a Chinese restaurant. I cannot comment about the bar area, but many have made good comments about this section. I think I will try this area with my girlfriend sometime. The food is ok in the main restaurant and the service varies. Prices are very affordable, but the quality of the dishes could be a little better. The family style spinning tables are a plus for those family dinners out.

This is the classic "Chinese American" place. It looks like it was built by Americans, who like the Chinese look, and for the American palate, who think they are eating Chinese food. The food tastes good, but not great.
As usual, the cooking oil is not hot enough, and is kept too long. It has a good take-out business.

I have to say that we felt right at home. We moved from Idaho and had a family hang out called Pearls we thought they were the best Chinese food on the Planet. We have been proven wrong Hi Hat has the best food and great BBQ Pork. The service was very good we even sang Karaoke after dinner That was well lets say funny we had a very enjoyable evening..

This place has been around for 35 years and STILL has great food and service! They haven't let anything slip in their long history. In fact, they're remodeling Jan '03 to keep the place up. The weekend karaoke is absolutely fantastic (I don't get to see the mid-week shows), and they WELCOME non-pro singers like me! It's all for fun, and they let you know it. First Rate!

Ever walk into a karaoke bar with an amazing sound system, a huge selection of songs, and hordes of skilled performers? This is not one of those (thankfully). If you're like me and new to karaoke, nothing is more intimidating then a large, packed karaoke bar. The Hi Hat's lounge, on the other hand, is small and not exactly on the cutting edge. The performances vary enough in quality that I feel comfortable inflicting myself on the small audience (at least after a few of their relatively inexpensive drinks). The audience, like at most karaoke bars, is very supportive no matter what your skill level. I can't honestly say it's one of the best karaoke bars I know, but it's my first choice of the ones I've been to -- at least until I get a little more experience!
