We live 60 miles away now, but whenever I'm in the area, The lunch values are tremendous! There are about 2 dozen choices ranging from about $7 to $9. Entrees are served family style so you can taste different things. With the lunch, you also get soup, salad, paper-wrapped chicken, an egg roll, fried or steamed rice, an almond cookie... More

Food is always good, but, for some reason, always forget they exist. Service is fast, and a little formal, with white shirts and black tie. Traditional Chinese menu. Never had a bad meal.

I enjoy going here because the food is fresh and cook to order. The dish I like is the Pan Fried Noodles which is prepared table side. Sonny is a real honest and nice. Like the fish tank that's at the entrance.

Very good service in the restaurant. Fast to the table. Met the owner who was a nice guy. He mentioned that it is very rare to see Australians in Upland, and we enjoyed the atmosphere, food and banter.

China Gate was one of my standard, sit-down, Chinese restaurants I would frequent before so many more opened up in our area. The restaurant, I believe, is family owned. I have always enjoyed the food each time I have eaten there. When I frequent one of the local establishments in the same strip mall, I can smell the yumminess coming... More

By getting to China Gate at 5:00 p.m. on a Friday night it is pretty quiet which is nice since having six people in a booth it is hard to always hear the farthest person. The food is always very good and I especially like their Lemon Chicken and the fried wantons they serve when you first come in.

Wow! It reminded me of places from my past. Sort of a 1970's "that Chinese place" feel. This isn't a trendy regional Chinese place. It's an old fashioned place where you order food by the number listed on the menu, which includes descriptions in English and Chinese. And that menu is extensive. The food comes out fast, hot and good.... More

This restaurant is approximately ten years beyond needing a complete interior remodel and a lot of the staff could also use a remodel. Food is average, portions somewhat small for price, service and staff attitudes are poor and the place is a mess. Bathrooms and hall to bathrooms are a disaster. I hate paying for anything like this and I... More

My husband is a strict vegan and doesn't eat any oil or butter, We were hesitant to eat here, but decided to go. They were so accommodating and it was a great experience.

Whenever I go to this restaurant, which is nearly every time I'm in the area (I live 70 minutes away), it feels like old home week. I've been coming here about 20 years. The service is warm and gracious. My allergy doctor told me I probably wasn't allergic to shell food anymore, and I couldn't wait to try the shrimp... More
