We all started out having Sizzling Rice Soup then we shared Almond chicken and sesame chicken. It was lunch hour and they were busy but we had excellent service.

What can I say? I know this is mediocre food, the place is old, and the wait staff looks harried, but I enjoy lunch here. So, why? Though harried, the staff is polite and very prompt. Moreover, though the place is old, it's generally clean and tables are quickly cleared. And, though the food is not of the greatest caliber,... More

I was recently in Corpus Christi for a funeral. There was a large, hungry crowd gathered at home afterwards. My cousin, a long time customer of the restaurant decided to place a large "To Go" order. It was delicious! Hot, freshly cooked, seasoned perfectly - the entrees labeled as "spicy" were well seasoned - just enough heat so it wasn't... More

Due to the weather, we came to a place we have been going to for years. We were not starving but decided to get appetizers and soup to wait out the storm. The waiter was not helpful or attentive. We had to ask for him twice and once got up to ask him for napkins. I do not think that... More

Fresh food consistently consistently cooked to excellence. When one is in the mood for freshly cooked Chinese food, the Hau T’Ai is highly recommended. This is a place to go for food. It isn’t a dining experience. I’m giving this a 4 star based on the food not on the ambiance or wine list, which consist of house wine only.... More

My family and I went to eat there Tuesday evening. We received an emergency family call. We took our food to go. It was the WORST FOOD WE HAVE EVER EATEN! None of the food tasted right. Even the dumplings were burnt!

This is one of my favorite Chinese food restaurants in Corpus Christi. The lunch specials are a great value. You get entree, soup, and egg roll for $8.00. Service is fast, the food is hot and good, and the price can't be beat. The hot and sour soup is one of my favorites. Best to arrive before noon as they... More

This restaurant always has consistant food. The lunch menu is very reasonable, under $8.00 & includes an egg roll & soup. If you come for lunch get there before 12:15. The restaurant fills up quickly. I always enjoy their General Tso extra spicy or Beef & Broccoli. Always good. They make their own chili oil. It is wonderful! Forget the... More

Hua T'ai is very good Chinese food. The Chinese couple who owns it are ALWAYS there and keep their food quality and service at high levels at all times. My husband has a wheat and corn allergy, so many of the traditional sauces are not allowed in his diet. The cook will "dry wok" his Hunan Chicken for him, and... More
