I went here with my 2 daughters for my friend's birthday dinner just before Christmas. I can say that they have pretty good food, the service was ok, The server was attentive, checking on whether we needed more drinks or anything else. They have a few parking spots in front of the building then there's street parking across the street... More

They served good food with excellent presentation. It is a clean Resto and waiters are polite. They always served sweet California fresh orange slices as desserts for everyone. Go and see for yourselves.

There is an old adage about life which is “never look in the kitchen of your favorite Chinese restaurant”. Sort of like the old adage “never look a gift horse in the mouth”, but much more graphic and I think much more truthful. Rarely has anyone actually looked at a horse’s mouth to see its health or actually was gifted... More

Had been here once before (a year ago) and it was just ok at best , but this time the food and service were both excellent! Look forward to returning again.

I have eaten at the sister restaurant in West Los Angeles on Pico Boulevard as well as this one. The food is fresh and the service is nice. They have been around for some time, so that speaks for itself.

DO NOT EAT IN THIS RESTAURANT!!! A recent dinner I had there was not only horribly cooked and disgustingly presented, but gave me diarrhea the next morning.I ate here with a friend about a year ago and the food was very good, but that was before they got their "B" rating from the L.A. County of Public Health, which, while... More

If you want just average Chinese food on a budget then this is the place to go. I can't recommend any particular dish because it is just okay. Lots of locals and workers in the area go here for lunch. They do have a large variety of menu items to try.

The family had a celebration luncheon at Hop Li, and the food was terrific! We had 3 tables of 10 people each. Food wasn't ordered until everyone got there, we only waited for a few minutes, then the 8 dishes came pouring out! The salt & spicy squid was fresh, light, and delicious. Green beans were crispy, eggplant was tasty... More

We stopped by for lunch because boyfriend wanted Lobster. Found out it comes in hefty 3 or 4 lb. size. Too big for lunch so he got the ribs, instead. And they were succulent! I ordered the Beef Tangerine for $11.00. What a mistake!! They brought out a plate piled high with the deep fried beef. Each piece was fried... More

My family loves to eat chinese food and so far this was our favorite place to eat. Other eateries we tried in china town were not that appealing in terms of its "cleanliness". We always go here for lunch and my son loves the pan fried noodles he calls "chinese spaghetti". Price are so cheap on a weekday, $7-$8 per... More
