Authentic cuisine with no match in Sacramento. Hoicin is by far the best Chinese food in Sacramento, on the same level as the authentic Chinese restaurants in San Francisco's Chinatown. I had the good luck to live in Rosemont (near where Hoicin is located) for three years and was a weekly customer. Now that I live downtown I still drive the twenty minutes to Hoicin when I can; there is just no other Chinese food in Sacramento on par with Hoicin. If you want authentic Chinese food you won't be satisfied anywhere else. Personally I would recommend the Mongolian beef as their best dish. Additionally, the food is served fast (dine-in and to-go orders are often ready within five minutes of putting in the order) and the staff understands the meaning of true customer service. If I could give them more than five stars I would.
Far From the Other Restaurants Who Claim to Serve "Chinese Cuisine".
You can walk into any restaurant in the world and can tell if the cuisine is true to the culture. You'll find more than half of the patrons are of that particular culture! That's what you'll find at HoiCin.
I love the low key ambiance!
It's great for family dining or just a night out for 2.
If you want a less "Americanized" version of Chinese cuisine - Check out HoiCin! If you want the dialed down version, Panda Express doesn't take reservations and they conveniently place your meal in a "To Go" box to save you sometime!
This place is definitely GOOD EATS!
best Chinese food around. My husband and I both agree , Hoicin is the best Chinese food around. Everything is cooked fresh and the food is wonderful. We have been looking for good Chinese food for a long time and Hoicin is wonderful.
deliciouuuuuuuuuuuuusssssssss!!!. been there a few times in the past month, their black peppercorn steak filet is a must try. juicy, sweet & tender, couldnt get any better than that. their live lobster in sampan deep fried style also a killing too. they aint that busy, during dinner time, but i think it is because they aint in a good neighborhood, otherwise, i bet they will rival some of the big boy if they are in DT or area like folsom.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Serving over 150 Chinese dishes, the restaurant offers seafood in a family-friendly, romantic atmosphere.
Nice people, average food. I got really excited when I read the reviews about this place. Moving to California from the East Coast ... I have found only one place that is comparable to what I have had in New York and Boston.....HoiCIn is a nice little place and Ok if you want something quick, and the people are nice, but this is not it. I recommend House of Chang (Natomas and Elk Grove Locations)
Best in Rancho BY FAR and they DELIVER.
I had been to Hoicin once or twice in the past and loved the place and then one night I was out doing something and saw a car with the "Hoicin" on top of his car with the phone number, stating they delivered! When I saw that I quickly wrote down the number.
A few days later I decided to look up their website http://hoicin.com/ and saw their menu. I ordered for a delivery and also asked for a menu to be brought to my home with the food.
They were very courteous both on the phone and in person and sincerly seemed to enjoy serving me. The menu they brought to me was a REAL menu, not some paper thin menu. It has photos and all that.
One thing I do want really make clear.. TIP THE DRIVER. I tip a minimum of $5 even if I just order $15 worth of food.
Give them a call. You will not regret it. :)
Great chinese food. Wonderful Valentine's Day.. I took my wonderful girlfriend to HoiCin for Valentine's Day. I based my decision to go there on the reviews on CitySearch and I was pleasantly surprised that all the positive reviews were true. Tons of people do take out and I think we will too. We ordered the beef w/ cilantro soup. I've always loved that soup and HoiCin's was one of the best I've ever tasted. Then we got their Double Dragon (which is crab/lobster in their signature batter). Gf and I devoured the whole plate. We also added on the Seafood Happy Family which was a good mixture of meat, vegetables, and seafood. Was not very Americanized Chinese, as some Chinese restaurants have resorted to. The marinade for the food is just right, not salty, but not bland either. Almost perfect. We are already planning to come back again this coming weekend, if not the next weekend.
Very Yummy..... Been there on Labor day, great food! Their smoked sea bass was just awesome, sweet & juicy! I also tried their crab rangoon, very crispy and taste well too! Service was prompted too! Great dining experience.
Best Delivery Service in Rancho Cordova. There are few neighborhood restaurants that deserve my regular business. Hoi Chin is one of them. They have a very large menu and I've never ordered a dish that I didn't like. I usually rate a Chinese place based on the quality of their appetizers, Hoi Chin has excellent prawns, butterfly-style with light crispy batter. Not greasy. The fried rice is a good bargain and it stays fresh even for leftovers the next day (doesn't dry up like other greasy spoon China cafes). Delivery is prompt and no fee is charged, so tip well.
