I dined at this Establishment with my Doctor for an afternoon Lunch. The Atmosphere was comfortable and the Place is clean. What was a turn off was the very unfriendly service from the Waiter. He was horrible! The Food was mediocre and nothing special but wasn't bad either. The Bill for 2 of Us at Lunch was excessive and very... More

If you like good Chinese take-out food, go elsewhere! Food is greasy. The hot and sour soup is hot and sweet, and I actually spit it out. Worst anywhere. Sorry to be so negative, but I even gave them another chance after an ownership change and... same ol', same ol'.

Our recent return to HO-wah was a little disappointing. We ordered the salt and pepper fish which we ordered in the past and just loved it. But this time it was smothered in jalapeño peppers and was just too spicy hot, so advise them when ordering of your preference and they will accommodate. We also had their won ton soup... More

The Restaurant is very clean and has a nice Atmosphere. Service was alright and Food arrived quickly. As far as taste it wasn't bad but also not extra ordinary. Just average. As far as the price it is a little inflated for Marina and the quality of Food.

Mandarin shrimp for 12.00 did not include rice or a soup which normally is included in a dinner. Tea was only quarter filled in pot...not good. For the price I would come and order the same for lunch that does include sou, rice and fried wonton (2) at $9.00. Sorry wont be back for dinner.

Food here is freshly prepared to order. Vegtables are crisp and crunchy and heat can be adjusted to customer preference. My wife and I have eaten here several times and not bern disappointed since the new owners took over.

Ho Wah is under a new Ownership. The Restaurant is very clean and has a nice atmosphere. Food was prepared nicely and the Ingredients all very fresh. Also tasted pretty good. But the reason for 2 Stars has mostly to do with the Bill. Bill was over inflated and I feel as if the Owner added Gratuity. My Doctor friend... More

Marina is a small city with many jewels - one on the top jewels on this list is Ho Wah, the owner De Sun is a hard worker, great believer of good service and delicious food. I eat here or order to go at least three times a month! The BEST Chinese food ever...fresh, no MSG and generous portions..
