Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 July 2018

This was my 4th or 5th meal at Ding How. We got take out this time and it was a big let down. Ordered Ebi Yaki (appetizer which promised jumbo shrimp but delivered 4 medium-sized shrimp for $7.25), Chicken Lo Mein (average for $9.25), Ma Po Tofu ($9.75, tasted like they used black pepper to make it extra spicy, as requested), Lemon Chicken ($11.75), and Sesame Shrimp ($14.25 - deep fried battered shrimp). The flavors were all pretty average. The Ma Po Tofu sauce was forgettable and used frozen peas and frozen carrots, which is very disappointing given the Lo Mein had fresh carrot strips. The Sesame Shrimp (Chef Special) was the biggest disappointment because the shrimp were deep fried and the sesame flavor did not come through. Lemon sauce for the chicken was canned and gloppy. Can't say I'd recommend any of the above, which is a shame given my prior review.

Literally used the GPS in our car to find a Chinese Restaurant in the area. It led us to Lu's Ding How. We enjoyed it, a lot! We've been back 4 times now. There has never been a crowd but it is obvious they do a booming carry-out business. The portions are large, we always leave with leftovers. Their szechuan green beans are to die for! Between the 3 of us we've tried a variety of dishes over the last few visits and we've never been disappointed. It's all been delicious! It is our go to in this area. So very happy we found this place! We'll definitely be going back.

My husband & I flew out from California to visit our daughter for Thanksgiving. We happened upon Ding How and ate there twice! The food was fresh tasting, well prepared, and delicious!

Ding How boasts a diverse and extensive menu and is the best option in the Lutherville-area when ordering take-out or delivery. The restaurant itself is small and nondescript, but the food is a win. I especially like the chicken and string beans (or broccoli) and their fried rice is always good. Their wonton soup is flavorful, and better than their hot and sour soup.
