I'm so glad we had a menu for 888 Chinese in our hotel room near Hobby Airport. We called and placed a delivery order. Our order was delivered earlier than the quoted delivery time. Food was hot, delicious and plentiful. I made a point of saving the phone number in my smart phone for the next time I'm staying near... More

I love this place. I think one of the weird things that I love about it is the cleanliness of the glasses. The glasses always look like they are new and the iced tea looks and tastes so good. That is not to say the food is bad. It is my preferred place to eat Chinese food. A Chinese co-worker... More

Older building, but food is really good. Parking lot was full so I had to wait for a space to open up.

I have been coming here for many years. They work hard and pay attention to special requests. Best part is they have three different menus. Regular Chinese, traditional chinese, and Indian Chinese. Must try!!!!

I'm not an (American) Chinese food connoisseur, but this place is by far the best I've had in Houston (been here around 8 years). The parking lot is always full and the restaurant packed. I have only been to the Gulfgate location (Winkler Dr). Its slightly more expensive than other Chinese restaurants at around 10-13/meal, but I am always forced... More

We have been to this place twice. Each time as a group of over 20 people. Great food. Lots of options. Very good flavor. This is by far the best Chinese Food for all our friends and family in the Houston area.

By recommendation, we decided to try this restaurant for dinner. We ordered the Orange chicken, won-ton soup, beef broccoli, chicken and broccoli, red fish with jumbo shrimp, egg rolls, and fried spring rolls. All I can say is that we were very impressed by the taste and quality of the dishes. It is not your typical Chinese restaurant, it is... More

There is simply no better Sichuan (spicy) style Chinese restaurant in Houston than this one, although there are quite a few good ones around chinatown. 888 serves 2 kinds of menus, one of them is for Chinese customers by default. It has English translation and I guess the sole purpose of this is trying to make sure the customer wants... More
