We love the lunch specials with the wonderful fresh veggies that come with them. You can't beat Holly's for delicious Chinese food.
Solid Chinese food. Fast, reasonably priced, better quality ingredients than most Chinese places, and the people there are super nice.
Holly Mandarin's is our family go to for Asian comfort food. There wonton soup lifts our souls on cold gloomy days. Out other favorites include the shrimp and beef dishes.
So so so happy they've survived. They're so sweet and their food is consistently amazing. Brown rice fried rice for the win always!! Sometimes they sneak in some sesame balls if you order direct by calling them, but maybe they dropped that practice. Either way, it's just better to call them than use an app.
Our first time trying out this spot and we were so pleased! The portions were very generous, the food arrived hot and fresh, and we appreciated how carefully it was packaged. We ordered the orange chicken, honey walnut shrimp, red bean paste sesame balls, and veggie chow mein. The orange chicken comes with the sauce in a separate container, which kept the chicken crispy. Honey walnut shrimp was the best I've had in recent memory. Good flavor, nice large shrimp, and the walnuts themselves were nicely toasted and had a nice crunch. We super appreciated the additional sesame balls and crab wontons that were added to our order complimentary! Highly recommend this restaurant, we will certainly be back to try other menu items. Thank you!
Delicious!!! My "go to spot" for take-out particularly throughout the 'shut down'. Holly herself is a sweetheart. Looking forward to being able to dine in soon.
An update on Holly's- it's still a great place to get delicious food! The customer service, and the food have been great each and every time I have eaten here over the past 8+ years I have lived in this neighborhood! The owners are always working hard to keep customers happy and satisfied! They also package food up so nicely when you do take out. Fried/ crunchy foods stay that way till you are ready to eat! They put the sauces separately to help keep things crunchy.
too long does not give the necessary attention to customers takes more than 30 minutes at the scheduled time the delivery
Holly is the sweetest, most genuine person, who clearly cares so much about every customer and wants everyone to have a great experience. And the food is amazing, for a great price! Best Chinese food around!
Consistent, tasty, typical Chinese-American style food. Decent prices, Holly is very nice. They support the community (T-ball team pics and thank you cards on the walls)
Delicious Vegetarian food. MaPo Tofu with brown rice and veggies. Green beans with brown rice and veggies. Great customer service
The food is always seasoned perfectly, fresh and leftovers last. Fast service too!
Pretty delicious Chinese food, that is quick and prompt. Placed an order for delivery at this restaurant on a whim, and it did not disappoint. We ordered a ton of food and it arrived in the cutest box! Some of the dishes I hadn't eaten before and had to call the restaurant about how and what sauces go with which meal. The restaurant was patient with explaining their recommendations and telling me how to prepare the dishes (for instance, the crispy chicken came with a dark sauce, but was not recommended to pour over entire chicken, but rather to use as a dip to prevent chicken from gettint soggy). They are also known for sending a couple extras along the way. We got crab wontons, which was a crowdpleaser. Loved the crispy noodles with chicken and shrimp, the shrimp fried rice, and the lemon pepper fish (my fav!) But everything we got was great, and we definitely plan on ordering from here again. I also loved the fortune cookie. They included several for our food order, amd I may have eaten them all (with no regrets, either).
I've been going there almost weekly for years. The food is amazing and the whole family are super nice. I can't recommend this place highly enough - especially if you are vegetarian!
Had the black bean dish, yum. How they will soon allow diners inside, not just to go.
