“Hong Kong Chef is better down the street.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I've been a loyal customer of Gilberts for years and they have either changed cooks, changed food vendors or a combination of both. The sesame chicken is soggy and has no crunch at all anymore and it seems like you're getting more dark meat than anything else. I'm sorry but I had to move on.

They still have the biggest and best egg rolls though!

“Best Chinese take out in the area...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

People in the area seem to know good Chinese and it is Gilberts. Not much from the outside, but once inside there is a long line for pick-up and the phone keeps ringing off the wall. Gilberts is on the expensive side for carry out, but the portions are very large and quality is very good. Mongolian beef is one of our favorite dishes. My husband has been going there for many years and claims the quality is consistant. I guess this is why Gilberts does well even in an obscure strip mall location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice little take out place. Not really enough room to dine in.
