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...

This restaurant has been here what seems like forever. I remember going there with my kids who are now in their early 40s. Food is decent, prices are fair, and servings are sufficient, but not as large as other places. This time we tried the Special Dinner Combination and walked out satisfied, but not impressed. The place was crowded, so... More

Great american style chinese food, made fresh with quality ingredients. The staff is very friendly and attentive to customers. They have a large variety of items on the menu, both vegan and with meat. For sharing (or not) they have dinners priced per person, each person can choose one dish and share. They bring fried wontons, sauces and a pot... More

I began enjoying China Gate when I was 7 years old. 26 years later, it is still my favorite place to eat Chinese food. The food is by far some of the highest quality and not mass produced food like you might find at many of the other Chinese restaurants. The staff has always been extremely friendly and the Owner...

We were seated at a round table with a big turn table in the center. It was perfect for socializing and food sharing. Even more perfect was our... More
