West Seattle restaurants: Final night for Ho-Win

Almost two months ago, we reported on Ho-Win Chinese Restaurant‘s decision not to renew their lease after 12 years at 5905 California SW. They hadn’t set a closing date at the time – but last night, we got a tip via Twitter, and today its proprietors (who had to be coaxed to pause ever so briefly for a photo!) confirmed to WSB contributor Bill “Hutch” Hutchison that TONIGHT is their final night. Unless business is very slow (call first if you’re considering going in mid- to late evening), they expect to be serving until 10:30 pm. First on the agenda post-shutdown – a well-deserved vacation, including a visit to China. Then maybe – a new restaurant, back here in West Seattle! But not in this space; it reportedly has been rented (we’re checking on that). Their message to you: Thanks for your years of support.

    NOOO! We live a block from here and love the food, proprietors and convenience. I am so sad to learn of their closing. We wish y’all the best and hope for a new location (after your much deserved vacation.) Going to cry now over missed mu shu pork.

    I feel bad whenever a business has to close. I hope they can find a new location here in West Seattle. A choice of asian restaurants is good for our neighborhood! I hope you return soon.

    Good luck to you and happy travels. We hope to see you soon in a new location. Where will we find our sweet & sour chicken? *sob*

    Just happened to call them tonight to see if they were still open to find out this was their last night. Whew!!! Just about missed our last chance to enjoy our favorite letter “A” before the final closing. Mmmmm… as usual it was so tasty. I hope after they enjoy some well deserved time off that they come back and open a new restaurant here again. In the mean time, they will be missed. :cry:

    Ugh, West Seattle needs more Chinese restaurant options! I will miss them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
