Traditional chinese and more served to your taste. The steamed or pan-fried trout or crab legs are sine qua non or as we say darned good. Don't bypass bakery fresh desert (opera creame cake) which you will find is an elegant finish to an oriental meal. Half-portions of vegetables (spinach, lotus root, etc) or main course choices may be ordered... More

We are visiting the area and tried the China Gourmet in Hyde Park based on some good reviews. Our experience did not live up to our expectations. We both ordered the Hot and Sour soup. Our taste buds said that it wasn't very hot (spicy) but very sour, way too much vinegar. My wife's Moo Shu duck was very good... More

Always a good "go to" restaurant. Food, particularly fish, is always good. The owner, Tenley Moy, is hands on, and this, undoubtedly, is why the restaurant has been so good for so long.

My husband and I saw the review and 4-5 star rating of this restaurant and was so happy to get there, however it was a great let down. We had a late dinner and from the outside this place appears dark and unsafe the problem is There is no sign at least none that we saw to park in the... More

We go quite often. The food is exceptional. Lots of friends, particularly on weekend evenings. It is, without a doubt, the best of its kind!

The gentleman who recommended this restaurant said it was the "best Chinese in Cincinnati". He was right! The owner, Tenley, came to our table, introduced himself and began to explain the items on the menu. They all sounded so good that I jokingly said: "I have one of each". Tenley offered to customize our dinner to what we would enjoy!... More

Have eaten in Chinese restaurants across Cincinnati and the US, Mr. Moy and team have elevated fine Chinese dining to new levels-from cuisine to service to ambience, it would be hard to find a better example of Chinese fare anywhere!

My husband I had a wonderful dinner. The bartender was great and educated me on new martini combinations. The seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. The lobster and walleye were fabulous. The owner also educated us on exotic Chinese vegetables which were delicious. All together we had a wonderful relaxing evening.

My wife & I try to get to the China Gourmet about once/month - especially on a (Tuesday) night if they are having their lobster special (I like it Cantonese style). Their specials change, so it helps to check their website menu for the current special-of-the-day. But anyway, on our last trip my wife decided to try their Stir-fried Oysters... More

I've been dining at China Gourmet for almost 30 years. It is outstanding. The "gourmet" in the name is what you get. Great food, expertly prepared, served professionally, tables with tablecloths, in a comfortable atmosphere that's not too formal but not too casual -- just right. Many of the staff have been there for years. This restaurant is very well... More
