Farmington Hills restaurant Hong Hua named 'top 100' in country
Published in the Oakland Press: Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Hong Hua Restaurant is celebrating 10 years in business and was named by Zagat as one of the top 100 Asian Restaurants in America for 2011, the only Asian restaurant in Michigan to be included in this list.

Hong Hua serves up Chinese/Asian specialties with a nuance of French and Japanese accents.

Owner Danny Yu started in the restaurant business in his native China 30 years ago, training as a chef, then moved to Montreal, Quebec, in 1990 to open his own 110-seat Chinese restaurant.

In 2000, Yu moved to the United States and opened Hong Hua, a 7,000-square-foot restaurant at 27925 Orchard Lake Road, north of 12 Mile Road in Farmington Hills. The restaurant seats 150, including a private banquet room, and employs 25 staff members, all from China.

Hong Hua grosses about $2 million per year in revenue and Yu expects that number to rise as the popularity of authentic Chinese/Asian restaurants increases. “People want and expect authentic dishes when they come to Hong Hua,” says Yu. “We don’t serve the typical fare served at Americanized Chinese restaurants.”

“Our master chef, Peter Chan, has 33 years in the restaurant industry and specializes in authentic meals that are light, flavorful and filled with lots of color,” he said. “Our recipes come from our chef, some are traditional family favorites, and some come from just experimenting with new ways of cooking and creating new sauces with lots of flavor. We pair up our selections with a fantastic wine list to make the perfect meal. We use white table linens and real napkins — it’s all part of the presentation.”

Hong Hua has several house specialties, including Chilean Sea Bass with ginger and XO sauce on a bed of snow pea pod leaves, Peking duck with vegetables, and rib eye with a special “magic sauce.” The price for lunch meals start at $9 and dinner meals at $20. Food is also available a la carte.

Hong Hua is open for lunch at 11 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and at noon on Sunday and holidays. The restaurant closes at 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and at midnight from Friday to Sunday. Cash and major credit cards are accepted. Reservations aren’t necessary except for the banquet facility and parties of eight or more. Catering is also available.
