We have three Chinese girls who live with us, and we wanted a nice meal for a celebration before they flew home for the holidays. Gen-Hoe was a poor choice. We ordered a full array of foods and most were the worst version of that dish I've ever had. Hot & Sour Soup tasted like shampoo (we threw it away... More

My husband, my mother, and I visit this place regularly. The last 2 visits we have had lukewarm, less than delicious food. Also the service is deplorable. Tonight our egg rolls were warm at best. The same was true for the sweet and sour shrimp. Also, I ordered crispy noodles and they were not served to us until we were... More

Enjoyed a large gathering with friends here. Food served quickly and very tasty. The lemon chicken is a must try! Great for families!

We haven't been here in a long time. The food was great. The service was on point. The restaurant has been redone. Looked good to us. We will go back more often. The Egg Rolls are the best ever.

There needs to be a zero. This place is gross. 20 year old stained carpet, spider webs. I camp, I can get past that. The service is absolutely terrible and the worst part of the experience. We were seated 25 minutes late. Once seated, NO ONE came to table. We were brought water, but no menus only after flagging someone... More

A friend recommended this place. We picked up our dinner (beef with vegetables and general's chicken with egg rolls) and took it home. The food was so bland and was not fresh. None of us liked it. We will not try this place again.

We had not been here in years, still a charming old school Asian sit down restaurant. I love the candles and white tablecloths- really nice atmosphere. I am gluten intolerant 😕due to digestive issues. This restaurant kindly accommodates and delivers fantastic GF options. I selected the noodle dish which comes many ways - I got the vegetarian and to my... More

Having seen this change from once a little tiny restaurant to a large upscale place, the quality and fresh ingredients make it a special place. No other place will you find large eggs rolls handmade and full of ingredients vs frozen and heated cabbage egg rolls other places use. Peking duck can be made with the open bun vs the... More

Gen-Hoe remains what a great Chinese Restaurant is supposed to be all about, great food. My daughter thinks Gen-Hoe is one of the fanciest places to eat. We have the place pegged as a great place to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion as Gen-Hoe delivers great food and fun. The Crab Rangoon is always a popular appetizer as... More
