We ordered from this restaurant and had it delivered to our room after traveling for 9 hours. The hostess at our front desk suggested it and it was delicious. The delivery was quick and the food was hot. The chicken fried rice and sweet and sour chicken were great!

We enjoyed China Gourment when we lived in Milwaukee several years ago. Since then we moved to and lived in China for 4 years, and then Chicago, and now back part-time in Milwaukee. We revisited China Gourmet tonight for dinner. We struggle to find Chinese food in the US that is as good as what we loved when living in... More

I work across the street from this restaurant and have been there many times for their buffet. They have a great selection and the service is great.

Before I went to hear the Symphony at the Pabst, I checked China Gourmet's menu online. They had a very broad selection of dishes -- poultry, beef, vegetarian, pork, noodles, fried rice, etc. There was a special offer: if you showed your ticket (for theater or concert) to the restaurant staff you would get a free egg roll or cup...

I can't say the food is better than average for Chinese cuisine, but I always enjoy coming here. It's bright and colorful and the buffet is a pretty good deal with a pretty wide range of offerings.

Rainy night in Milwaukee and China Gourmet is right across from the theater. This place has been there forever so the food must be good. It is! The menu is so large you will never read it all. We normally order off the menu when there is a huge buffet that way the food is cooked just for us. Ordering... More

Not many Chinese restaurants within walking distance of the downtown hotels where I was staying, but I found this one and had some great beef & pork with broccoli and rice. I was surprised at how dead the place was and really felt bad for the owners because I do think the food was good, and the little old Chinese... More
