We went for dim sum and were surprised at the lack of variety. The food was cold, deep fried with a strange aftertaste. The waiters did not speak English and did not understand our requests. The worst dim sum in the tri state area.

Only place I could find that offered Dim Sum on a Saturday at lunch. Limited offerings and many dishes circulated many times before being sold and were COLD. Food was good but nothing I tried was excellent. An oasis for someone longing for Dim Sum however.

We have visited China Gourmet many times for Dim Sum but usually arrive around noon and the Dim Sum has generally been good. The restaurant advertises that they serve Dim Sum from 11-3. This past weekend we had a couple of errands to run and arrived at China Gourmet at 1:30PM. There were still quite a few tables filled and... More

2nd review for this establishment and this visit was better. Dim Sum is better when the restaurant is crowded so the food turns over and there is more variety. That was the case this visit and it made a difference is the experience. I recommend the calamari, chinese broccoli and thin noodles with veggies. All of these items were not... More

The food at China Gourmet is excellent! Every dish that I have had there has been delicious. Most recently ate a dish they call "Amazing Chicken" (it was) and WonTon Soup, also had Tangerine Beef not too long ago (also excellent). My family has dined there often, and everyone has always been very pleased with their meal. The service is... More

China Gourmet was not bad. We went for dim sum. What we had was mostly quite good. However, the problem was, you neeed to sit there for over an hour to get the variety. Well after we finished our meal; waitreses suddenly changed their old carts to add new, fresh, different dishes after an hour of bringing around the same... More

Friends raved about the restaurant's dim sum but I don't agree. The selection was limited and menu requests took forever to be served. We asked for noodles that seemed to be at every table and were refused.....that was indicative of the service which was perfunctory at best. We practically had to plead for explanations of what was on the cart.... More
