What a sad thing it is for me to have to write a revised review of Gim Bow. Our family has gone there for years and years. Now, however, the combination fried rice is no longer full of bits of shrimp, beef, chicken, ham, and vegetables as it used to be. Now, instead, it is a lot of fried rice with very little else in it. What a disappointment! The beef with garlic sauce now has black beans in it, and the flavor is not what we enjoyed before. Even the egg fu yung, my husband's former favorite, has changed for the worse.

We like to support local businesses (Justice has so few!) and over the years we had always relied on the good food we ordered from Gim Bow. Sadly, the new owners are not, in our opinion, providing the tasty meals we were used to.

The Chicken Almond Ding was DELISH! Chicken egg foo yung also very good. Liked the chicken fried rice also.

Updated interior / new booths / new floor tile.

Worth another visit if you haven't been there in the last couple months.

My family has been going here for 30+ years. We have our favorites - mainly chicken subgum. We order the dinner combo which comes w/egg foo yung & fried rice. There's always a pot of tea on the table. It's the farthest thing from fancy you can get but the food is good & there's plenty of it.

If you are looking for good quality meat and veggies cooked fresh and prepared daily, this place is not for you. If you are looking for the traditional american chinese hole-in-the wall restaurant with ok food, then it's not a bad option. Be prepared to have everything you order covered in gravy. So much that it is hard to tell the difference between menu items. On the other hand, my in-laws love the food and order here pretty often. Nobody has ever gotten sick and the service is always good. So, try it if you wish.
