Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover!

I almost turned around and left when I saw the condition of the interior. The carpet is worn and dirty, the paint is chipped, the reception desk is cluttered, etc. I'm glad I decided to stay. The service was very warm and friendly. My food was outstanding. I was in the mood for soup, so I... read more

Favorite lunch place for my wife and me. Extensive menu but we are always drawn to the tbree flavor noodle soup. It is a huge serving and although I always get rid of mine, my wife always has enough left over for lunch the next day. Extensive menu and great service should please anybody.

I've been going to this restaurant for lunch for about 20 years, and I'm never disappointed. The lunch menu has approximately 35 items on it -- I think the most expensive is $8.95. All entrees are served family style so you can share. The following comes with your meal: soup (won ton or hot and sour), egg roles, paper-wrapped chicken,... More

The waiters are very attentive, service is quick and food is yummy. They have no problem seating a big group. I like that they have their lunch specials even on weekends.

We've been going to this restaurant for more than 25 years. A few years ago the original owners sold the restaurant and the new owners kept most of the menu items, adding a few others. We used to enjoy the House Panfried Noodles and the honey pecan shrimp. We noticed that the staff aren't as nice, so we haven't been... More

We've been eating here for over 20 years and the sizzling rice soup (with chicken, shrimp etc.) is the best I've had. They also have an endless list of food choices for both lunch and dinner. The kind of place that you will return to time-after-time.

Over twenty five years ago I went to this restaurant for lunch with co-workers and loved the food and the value. I moved away and recently was in the area and tried it again for lunch. Fantastic - the same as before and only went up in price a couple of dollars. Freshly made and several courses for less than... More

We love coming to China Gate at least once a month - and always for the same thing. Their house special dish is called "House Pan Fried Noodles". We start off with sizzling rice soup with shrimp, then have plain fried rice (no extra charge for this, but you can just have steamed rice if you prefer) and the House... More

Had enjoyed eating here on and off for almost 28 years. Our visit on Dec. 27th during lunch was disgusting. The place is now filthy with food splatter abounding; the gummy, cornstarch laden "chicken" chop suey had the total off a ONE inch square cut into the shape of small worms; the glassware was nastily bussed from tables via fingers...
