Friendly Neighborhood Asian Restaurant. My family has lived in Highlands Ranch for 10 years, and Little Holly's is a mainstay for us on nights when we can't or don't want to cook. We love eating in, too. The service is always cordial and prompt, both in the restaurant and for take-out. The staff is always warm and friendly. The food is always above-average to excellent for standard Chinese American cooking. The salt and pepper shrimp is delicious. We've ordered many dishes off the menu, and have never had problems. We LOVE that the restaurant serves a lot of veggies. We've never received paltry seafood or meat portions. Really, I have no complaints. If you want predictably good Chinese food from a friendly neighborhood restaurant, this is the place to go!!
Terrible food -. I really want to like this place. it's right around the corner from my house. I've been 3 times and it's just terrible. I've even tried different things hoping to happen on something that is wonderful. The Crab Rangoons are sweet, the Holly's shrimp is dreadful. The sesame chicken is just strange. It smells like buffalo sauce when you open it. The fried rice is dry and boring, no matter what is in it. The lo mein is just limp. You need a lot of soy sauce just to get it down. Just don't torture yourself thinking you are going to get a good meal here.
It's my "Cheers," Asian style.
I have been a very happy regular customer of LIttle Hollys since the day this restaurant opened. Whether I call on the phone or drop in the restaurant, I am greeted by name. Anne who usually manages the take-out order even knows my voice, what I like, and how I like it (usually extra spicy).
I can't cook food as delicious as this. Every entree and appetizer is fresh and prepared to order. Best of all, takeout is ready in five minutes, unlike PF Changs, PeeWee, and other asian restaurants that make you wait 20-30 minutes. John Holly and CiCi run great restaurants with fabulous food. They earn a five star rating every time I go there. They also run John Holly's Asian Cafe in Park Meadows and Little Ollies Asian Cafe in Cherry Creek North.
ok for some items on menu. I order take out here because it's my only oriental food option. They have great house Lo Mein, however, they add way too many vegetables to other dishes. For instance, the Sweet & Sour Chicken had large broccoli and cauliflower pieces. Some may love this, but I am not a fan of those vegies in oriental food. I have never had a problem with a delivery person...they are usually quick and take my $2 tip.
Rotten Service - Decent Food. I used to eat frequently at this restaurant. i've since moved further away. Recently, I made a special trip there. I arrived at 3:30. I asked for the Lunch Menu. They said I couldn't order from it, as it stopped at 3:00. There wre ZERO other customers in the place. The staff was sitting around reading newspapers. I asked politely for an exception, as it was only 30 min. past and they were not busy. After all, same menu... no big change for them. He flatly, NOT politely said no. So, my friend and I left. As we walked out, one guy didn't even look up... "have a nice day. Thank you." Whatever!! The prices are in the median range.... I expected better from "John's" restaurant. I think he would have been disappointed in his lazy staff....... such a disappointment from when they first opened. And no, I will never go back.
STAY AWAY!!!!. STAY AWAY!!! We have given this restaurant a couple of tries because the first time we had dinner here it was wonderful! It must have been an off night, We ordered take-out and received 2 shrimp in the Yushan shrimp dish we ordered and paid $13 for. When I called to inform the restaurant what had happened I was yelled at and hung up on!!! Approximately 6 months later we decided that the problem was with “take out” so we went in for lunch on 9/2/10 @ 12:30 pm. Again we ordered the Yushan shrimp and this time we got 5 small shrimp. We ordered wonton soup and we were told “NO not for lunch” then the server came back and said we could order but it would be an additional fee. So we ordered the soup, it tasted like dirt! I don’t know if they didn’t wash the mushrooms, carrots and other veggies they put in the soup but it was truly horrible!!!! We told the server and she told us nothing was wrong with the soup and we should eat it ~ they would not take it off our bill even thought it was NOT edible! We ate family style (a very mediocre meal) paid our bill and left. Late that evening we both got horribly ill went into the emergency room and we were told that we had food poisoning. When I called the restaurant to inform them of what the hospital said they hollered expletives at me and hung up on me. Do yourself a favor and just STAY AWAY!!!!
DO NOT ORDER!!!.
DO NOT ORDER FROM LITTLE HOLLY'S!!!! The delivery guy tried forcing his way into my house because I only gave him $2 for a tip. Said I owed him $2 more!!! When I stopped him from entering, he jumped back into a karate stance and wanted me to come outside to fight!! I had to call the police!!! When I called the store, they said it is customary to give more than $2! Said the guy is family, and his car does not run on Chinese food! I can't imagine what he does to females that give less money! Intimidates then into giveing more?
Surprisingly Good Food. I thought this place in Highlands Ranch would be expensive, but quite the opposite. It's the sister restaurant to John Hollys and have basically the same type of food, minus the sushi bar. You can ask for dishes and more than half the time they can and will make it for you. Service can be a little slow and the dining room cramped, but overall, if you can get on the patio, it's a nice change of pace. Though when on the patio, you tend to get a little ignored by your waiter/waitress.
FKJOHN. Bad flavor, bad service, ugly alien looking boss. Please close down your restuarant and go back to your home town waiting for shi. ChaonilpdeB.
Disappointed. I ordered dinner for my family from Little holly last night, very salty and small portion food. Worst hot and sour sour i ever had. The delivery order took them more than 1.50 hour to deliver to my door, delivery man asked for more tip for gas. DISAPPOINTED
