I have a love/hate relationship with this place. I've taken out food that was absolutely terrible that I had to toss. I ate there recently -- wanted to give it another try -- and had chow fun and a minced shrimp/lettuce dish and they were both excellent. There aren't a lot of Chinese choices near the AMC movie theater, so... More

I have dined here so much in past several months - I was staying in hotel down the road - I would phone in my order - get a discount - and walk up road about 10-15 minutes and the food would be ready - you can get plates/cutlery etc if you want them; the food would still be piping... More

We like going to this place for some of their specialties like their delicious wonton soup and sizzling rice soup (house special). They also make excellent shrimp with walnuts dish and their house special noodles is great. Would love to keep on coming to this place but it is a little pricey for Chinese food. Guess because of its location.... More

On business in Burbank and wanted Chinese food. Yelp travel reviews rated this restaurant as good. However I was disappointed. I ordered the Assorted Won Ton soup for $8, with 6 won tons, in a broth with vegetables and meat. It was average. Thought that the # of won ton was low for the price and the flavor of the... More

My family has been coming to this restaurant for years. They have great $6.99 and $8.99 lunch specials that includes soup, egg roll, 2 fried wontons, and rice. They have online ordering and take out, and they serve good portions, serving lunch and dinner.

My favorite Burbank Chinese restaurant is Gourmet 88. Been going there for years and the quality ingredients and top notch attentive service keeps me coming back. The spicy eggplant is one of my favorites. You can't go wrong with any of their dishes. They have a section in the back of the restaurant where you can have a private meal... More

With a very friendly staff, this staple of downtown Burbank is by far the best Chinese restaurant. Their dumplings are the best short of the dim sum in Monterey Park or Arcadia. Most Chinese food in LA, use 3 sauces at most in their preparation. Gourmet 88 offers a much better variety and aims to please on whatever you're craving.... More
