Gen Hoe is always consistent with both excellent food and larger portions. There is always enough to take some home so you really have two great meals. The service is always very fast and friendly. There are no better egg rolls to be eaten anywhere on the planet!

By far, the best egg rolls I have ever tasted! Crispy wrappers engulf a tasty filling of shrimp (not chopped pieces), pork, celery, Chinese cabbage and a delightful flavor. All of the food prepared here is fresh. Vegetables are colorful and crispy. Meat and seafood is tender and succulent. The portions are enormous! All of the servers are Asian, which... More

Grew up eating at Gen Hoe. NEVER have had anything from them that I didn't like. A couple of my favorites are the Sa-Dae Scallops (which often includes scallop roe that you aren't likely to find elsewhere), Shrimp Subgum, and their incredible Sweet & Sour Chicken. Each and every one of those dishes is prepared in a unique (and, I... More

Everything I have ordered from Gen Hoe has been wonderful. By far the best Chinese restaurant around.. The most phenominal egg rolls I have ever eaten! I don't know how they prepare them and I have eaten thousands of egg rolls and these are clearly the best! My favorite dishes here are the kung pao dishes (spicy brown sauce). Prices... More

Have been dining here for over 40 years. I have NEVER had a better egg roll or fried rice anywhere in my lifetime. Menu is extensive and something for everyone. Portions are very large and fairly priced for as much as you get.

I have been here a few times and the food is always excellent. The portions are very large, high quality and the service is also outstanding. It is the best Chinese food.

I've been going to Gen Hoe since I was a teenager (a long time ago) and I have yet to find a better Cantonese restaurant. The egg rolls are phenomenal, as is the Cashew Chicken. If you've never tried Gen Hoe, I would suggest going to lunch where many of the menu items are at a discounted price.

This plac has been around for years and there's a reason: great service, excellant food and friendly people. Our party used a 15 or 20 year old gift certificate our friends found while cleaning out some old files. Gen-Hoe was glad to take it and we had a great evening of eating and sharing.

This long time favorite in Geneva has lots of Asian customers so it mustbe good. I wasn't overly fond of the chef's special that eas our surley waiters recommendation but the crab puff appetizer was great. Try the Chinese beer as well it was very good.

My husband and I have lived in the area our whole lives but had never been to Gen Hoe. It's been in the area for years and years. We finally decided to try it out with another couple. We arrived and were seated immediately. My husband and I were the first to arrive. Somebody came by with water right away,... More
