Overpriced for very little food. $41 for Honey Walnut shrimp? Come on now. The food is considered "family style" and there were four of us. We got to try a little bit of the dishes we ordered but it truly wasn't that much food for 4. It's likely more for 3 or less. The food was ok, nothing special. You can get pretty much the same food at Panda Express for much, much less. The waiter was slow to respond. We had to ask for soy sauce several times before it was brought to the table.

Overall it wasn't terrible, but it's certainly not worth the over $130 we paid. Save your money and eat elsewhere.

We ordered the pepper beef and the meat was very tender and delicious. The orange chicken was surprisingly tasty with just the right amount of sweetness and tangy from the orange zest. The garlic young sweet pea sprouts was outstanding...a must order next time. Service was excellent. We will be back for more!!

I got called before my reservation time. My order as taken very quickly. The food was served very quickly and served very nicely on the plate . The food looked very advertising and delicious and it was. The waiter was very nice and polite. He also asked if there was anything else that we would like several times.

My experience on making a reservation on line to dine at the best Chinese restaurant was the best decision I made, restaurant is very reservation oriented and very on time. I arrived at my reservation time an they walked me in happy and ready to host my time there. Food was a 10+ Outstanding costumers Service, manager Jeff and waiter Jason help me pick best dishes to dine and I can’t thank them enough because meals w absolutely delicious.

Restaurant was less than a quarter full for our 12:30 lunch reservation. When seated, I inquired about the email I received that said your "SURPRISE" at Hong Bao and showed it on my phone. Waiter took my card etc. and looked it up. He said I have $25 credit towards food. I then showed him another regular email that said $25 that I always get. He just kept saying "just $25" and gave me paper with a bunch of figures he had printed. I didn't want to argue and said fine as he walked away. Saw waiters walking and standing, but no one came to take our order. After waiting patiently, my husband flagged the nearest waiter where he told us he wasn't our waiters, but graciously took our order. Our food never came, but we saw other orders being taken and their food brought quickly. Two different times, 2 different waiters saw we had no food and said "they would check" or say "coming soon". Then 45 minutes later our order of green beans and chow mein came, but they forgot 1 of the 2 individual bowls of white rice and the serving spoon, etc. The one that was most gracious was the one who kept serving us water. When the bill came I again gave my players card and credit card. He asked for ID, which was fine, but I said I already showed you before. He gracious told me that wasn't him. He came back and said I didn't need to use my credit card and showed me printed paper where I had over $340.00 credit l could use, if I liked.
We're we discriminated against because we are not Diamond players? On the positive note, all the staff was very pleasant.

Food came out immediately which is usually a good thing but immediately noticed it was half warm, mushy, flavorless and the meat was inedible. So, it seems like it was all microwaved. I have never paid so much for food that I couldn’t even eat. The tea was great. Picked out the peanuts in the Kung pao and the service was nice. Food was worst I’ve ever had and I’m a nice person who never complains. Until now.

Adam waiter is very accommodating. Your hostesses usually focus to their computer not welcoming their clients. They bring their client to a table but they are 5 feet or more ahead of the client as they are walking. They are nit welcoming, maybe they do nit speak English

Food was okay. We ordered Chow Mein and Honey Walnut Shrimp. Chow Mein was dry, needs more meat. Both dishes were not hot, just warm. Honey Walnut was pretty delicious.
Ambiance is was okay. I guess we were expecting more than what we got.

Our server was most helpful and knowledgeable. She was able to explain any questions we had about the food we ordered. I love that she served my hot tea and continued to refill my cup as necessary. I do think they could have maybe one more dessert on the menu.

That was thee most disappointing food experience I’ve had at that casino. Our expectations were high considering the great experience I had at The Pine. My lady had the Orange Chicken. It was Luke warm and hard as Little Rock’s. I had combo fried rice. It was cold, dry and basic. No flavor at all. Shrimp egg rolls also basic. The atmosphere was noisy. You could hear all the casino noise. I was expecting a more romantic quiet setting.soft music, low lighting. If that’s how it’s going to be in there fine. The food was awful. As a Diamond player and one who frequently comes to YAAMAVA.I can assure you I won’t be going to that restaurant again. Ive been to the Cafe, the former buffet, The Pine, JBQ, Rock and Brew, and Chingon. All good to excellent. That place was awful. I’d like to cheerfully request my $50 credit back, but if not, No worries. Just know I won’t be recommending that place. If anyone asks me, I’m going to be honest with them as I am with you.
