I frequent this restaurant many times in the past. Helen,the owner wasn't there on my last visit. Anyways, the kung pao chicken lacked the usual flavor. The Mongolian beef lunch special shrunk in size. The surprise I got after leaving the establishment was that they had a food inspection sticker with 2 violations. It had been posted since Nov. 2,...

The food was noticeable less favorable and the service was MUCH to leave desired. Definitely NOT focused on quality and customer opinion. Also double billed me for a dinner on my card after calling me up yelling about my phone order. Then, had the nerve to call me and accuse me of not paying because they mixed up their order!!...

The six of us walked into this spot without reservations at 12:15 pm. We are a bunch of retired coaches with big appetites and smaller wallets. This mom and pop type mall food spot was a great choice for our dining pleasure. Our host ordered for us, selecting the Cantonese Dinner for six. We started with extras: two orders of... More

Stopped in and grabbed quick take out. Very good, fresh food with generous portions. We now grab food here about once a week.

The new owners have done a great job in persuading me to return. I've dined in the restaurant and took orders to pick up. All meals were piping hot and delicious. The house special chow fun and and the hot & spicy beef are my favorites. The new owners seem to maintain the friendly service of the past owners.

This resturant has a new owner. The staff were good attentive to our needs. Food was brought out promptly. It just tasted the same. Chow mien noodles very thick and brown sauce that was not appealing to the eye. The pricing was good. Just didn't do it for me or other at the table.

I have frequent this establishment in the past for lunch and decided it was time for a review. The lunch specials are always hot and tasty, and the service is fast. The prices are reasonable, similar to what you would spend going thru a fast food chain and ordering a meal deal but much more nutritious!

I had dinner at the China Gourmet Restaurant and found their food to be pretty good, much better than the average Chinese restaurant. They have a lunch special, and several dinner specials. I had the Uncle Charlie's Special, Salt & Pepper Pork Chops. It was very good. The hot & sour soup was okay, the pork fried rice and chow... More

The staff call you by name and knows what you like to order or will make super recommendations. The portions are large and the price small, so be careful or you'll go home with several people bags.
