I remember the first time I went sometime last year, I ordered four toppings and was immediately astounded by the huge portions of food they gave out ... all for just $6.99! At first I thought the huge portions must compensate for poor taste, BUT the food was simply delicious. You MUST try their BBQ Pork (very limited, sold out almost always), lemon chicken, chop suey, and sweet&sour pork. There are so many choices as well, with a balanced proportion of meats, veggies. The service isn't bad either, the waitresses are very nice and generous, and the place is clean. The washroom could be better, but hey, life isn't perfect. I had a talk with the manager there once, and they told me they don't own the Ho Ho's on Robson/Commercial, which might explain how the taste isn't as good there. Summing up - highly recommended.

The original Ho Ho's was the one on 1224 Davie Street, and I simply LOVE it there. So, when this one opened I was really excited to try it out as it's a bit closer to where I live, however, I found that the quality of food was much worse. Unlike the original, this restaurant (and the one on Robson) uses (lots of) MSG. And well ... it just doesn't taste as good. Prices/portions are relatively the same though. Waiters and ambiance aren't bad as well. But before you try this one, go to the one on Davie first. Personally, I always travel a bit farther to go to the other one.
