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 back, you can only imagine the work trying to get down 9 stairs in heels to what appears to be a basement.
Nice surprise it was beautifully decorated, however the floor was so dirty the bathroom needed to be clean. I would not have made that an issue if the floor was a mess in one area. What I dont understand is it appears to be fully staff as workers congregated at one table talking.
The 100% soup I did not like but the scallops and spinach was amazing. The service could have been better and the fried rice with shrimp was great. Not a expensive place but restaurant 101 cleanliness denotes safe to eat at least in my opinion.

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! So we ended up with 2 tapas style appetizers: shrimp and scallops. Prepared perfectly. The main course was chicken with crispy noodles. DELICIOUS! The only directions we gave are that we would like shrimp, scallops, chicken and noodles. This was one of the most unique and best dining experiences we've had in a long time! The service staff was friendly and professional checking on us frequently without being annoying. When we got the bill we were amazed that, for a customized dinner, it was very reasonable.
So...order off the yummy sounding menu or "go off the grid"...we'll definitely go back to China Gourmet! No wonder the restaurant has been there since 1977!

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!
