We were missing our usual Asian food on our long road trip, and this place really hit the spot. More American-Chinese than "true" Chinese cooking (we're from Toronto, after all), but great value and friendly service made it worthwhile.

Best Chinese in the Gorge. Things are made a little different than my fave places in Michigan, but pretty good.

Before we moved to the Columbia Gorge area we heard people talking about the China Gorge Restaurant as the best Chinese food ever. They were right! We now go to this restaurant several times a year and it is 25 miles from our home. Excellent quality and quantity on the food. We had lunch today and they have a buffet... More

The service was very good. The food was outstanding. The portions were large. Very good deal for the money. My brother and his wife were not impressed with China Gorge many years ago and have never been back. I cannot understand why. It was some of the best Chinese food I've had. Even my Mother a very picky eater was... More

We got meals for 6 to go. The food was excellent. The hostess was very gracious and gave us tea while we waited for our order. The restaurant is very pleasant and has nice views of the Columbia River, even though we didn't eat in. We would recommend this restaurant for Chinese food.

Don't be fooled by the "Recommended on TripAdvisor" stickers on the doors. Probably some of the worst Chinese food I've ever had. Thought it was cool that they had tempeh on the menu for a nice change from tofu. Well, let's just say I used to like tempeh, but don't think I'll be able to eat it for awhile. Veggies... More

We drove thru Hood river looking for a quick and easy meal. We had about given up when on the East side of town we found this restaurant. They have a lunch buffet that is superb. Most Chinese buffets feature dried out overlooked food but china gorge brings out small fresh portions frequently. The entrees were great. Even the fried... More

Just got back to the Vagabond Lodge from dinner at China Gorge and a nice stroll through downtown Hood River. I had a combination dinner with egg flower soup, sweet and sour chicken, three shrimp, chow mein, rice, and tea. It was $13.95 and huge. Seriously, half of what I got would have sufficed. As it is, I brought home... More

This has got to be the worst chinese restaurant ever. The service was horrible. We were seated and asked for a few minutes to decide between ordering from the menu or buffet and our server didn't come back. Someone else had to flag down a different person to take our orders. We got the mushroom chicken (Panda Express puts this... More
