Ho Ho Restaurant (Delray Beach)

***** Ho Ho Restaurant, 6592 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33446, (561) 498-9266.

Ho Ho Restaurant is a neighborhood-no frills Chinese-Japanese joint located in Delray Beach. Its menu is divided into two-parts, Chinese and Japanese. You can check menu/prices at

Absolutely-positively nothing fancy here. Decent enough food at reasonable prices…plenty of combination dishes.

Of note, back in Brooklyn circa 1950s-1960s (if memory serves me correctly), there were no combo-restaurants…there were loads of Chinese joints, but to be perfectly honest with you, can’t recall-even one Japanese joint. Today, it’s a whole other story—sushi etc. are in vogue and Japanese joints are all over the place. In the Ho Ho case, I’d bet, that the owners are Chinese and that the Japanese menu is a-way to play both markets.

Now back to the food—applying the “Jewish-Brooklyn” Chinese taste-test– Ho Ho would not have been a major player in my Brooklyn neighborhood. Like I said before, decent enough food, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Just so you know, I did wonton soup, egg rolls, fried dumplings, bbq ribs, roast pork fried rice, General Tso’s chicken, lobster in black bean sauce, sweet & sour chicken. Everything was ok…but my neigborhood takeout joint does them-all better. On the Japanese side of the ledger, miso soup and shrimp tempura roll. Like its Chinese bretheren, ok—but nothing great.

To sum it up…Ho Ho is a neighborhood joint. The food is ok.

Ho Ho is open 7 days a week 11am-10pm.

    Hi Jeff,
    I hope I don’t stump you with this one… Doing the spanish theme for Mother’s Day with family, arroz con pollo etc. I’m in charge of dessert. Where in Boca can I find a good flan? You would think I would know considering I grew up in Puerto Rico.
    In NYC I wouldn’t have a problem but Florida… Thanks

    As I emailed you yesterday, give Phyliss G’s in Delray a call. They make a delicious flan.

    Thanks for reading…

    probably one of the worst chinese in florida, they never have any customers. just look at china gardens,this time of year they are standing out the door to get in.that should tell it all.I cannot fiqure out how they stay open ,maybe they have a takeout business.

    Since I reside in the Kings Point community I finally broke down and gave HoHo a try. I have to agree with Steven in that there is a reason you can get a table anytime at HoHo and wait upwards of an hour at dinnertime at China Garden. The food is the reason.

    We had hot and sour soup – mediocre at best – flat dishwater tasting with no tofu and very little else in the soup.
    egg rolls – small and no taste – hardly any stuffing, and if these were the meat egg rolls, where’s the meat?
    House Special LoMein – not terrible, but I’ve come to expect something special when I order house special anything – there were a few thin strips of chicken and pork and a handful of tiny shrimp. Few if any veggies in the mix. If this is what they put out as their “house special” then their house isn’t ver special, is it?
    The worst was the Dragon and Phoenix – BLAND, BLAND, BLAND!!! no spice at all. Actually no sauce at all, just some shrimp, a few chunks of chicken and veggies with no flavor.
    Needless to say, we won’t be back there again.
