Ginger and Fork aims to bring authentic Cantonese-style Chinese food to Houston’s already diverse culinary scene. Here, old-school dishes meet modern, serene surroundings and many consider this restaurant the best Chinese food in Houston. The staff go out of their way to make guests welcome and it’s not uncommon to see owner Mary Li and general manager Donnie Roy visiting tables around the room during the dinner hour. Try one of the classic dishes like the Clay Pot Beef, Cantonese Curry Chicken or Buddha’s Delight.

Ocean Palace

Dim Sum
10 reviews
Ocean Palace sits in the heart of Chinatown at the Hong Kong City Mall. It’s a huge, bustling restaurant that serves Chinese seafood and dim sum and makes a great spot for a boisterous celebration or meetup with a group of friends. They feature the biggest variety of dim sum in Houston and trays float through the room on carts for diners to choose from. Part of why the food is so delicious is because they keep the seafood fresh in live seafood holding tanks right up until the moment they cook it!
