I had a wonderful experience from
the service to the food. I can't wait to go back!"

Our group of 7 enjoyed a array of
tasty dishes. We asked for a quiet table and our request was honored. Wait staff was excellent. China Gourmet lived up to its fine reputation."

Owner/manager goes out of his way
to make his guests feel welcome, and to provide a personalized touch. The food was excellent. My spouse ordered a beef dish, and said the meat was the most tender he could remember eating in a restaurant. I had a mix of Thai chicken and shrimp, thanks to the owner's off-the-menu personalization. It was excellent."

China Gourmet is our favorite
restaurant in Cincinnati! My husband and I have been going there for the last 15+ years and it is always a great dining experience. I love to go for birthdays, anniversaries, important business dinners, or just a last minute dinner because "It's Tuesday". We have always gotten 5 star food, service, and ambiance. The owner and his staff should be commended for their attention to detail, and excellent service. You can order "off-menu" and they will happily create dishes for you. Their egg rolls and fried rice are the best in town, and really, the best I've ever eaten anywhere. Family-owned and operated. A hidden gem in Hyde Park on Erie with free and convenient parking. LOVE CHINA GOURMET!"

Didn't know what to expected when
I showed up. Nice environment, Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We asked for recommendation and we went with their picks, and very happy we did. We will be back."

Always consistent high quality.
Great food and wide selection. Friendly, happy staff which is reflected in fine service and really nice meals. If you have eaten at China Gourmet you are aware of this; and if you have not eaten there I can recommend reservations without any reservations :)"

We have gone to China Gourmet
several times and this time the food had very little taste. We overheard the couple behind us complain about the lack of taste also."
Dined on 2/8/2014
We have heard good things from
friends that go often to China Gourmet and decided to try it. I don't know if it was a bad night or what, but the whole experience was not very good. The service was very slow. We arrived before 7pm and were finally served our entree after 8:30pm. It took about a half an hour from the time we ordered our appetizer before it came as well. We had to finally let someone know when we were ready to order our entree because the waitress had not checked with us for so long. When the food arrived, it was mediocre at best. My steamed trout was bland and my husband said the same of the scallops."

I always feel that I am very
special when I dine at this wonderful restaurant. I was dining here before the remodel, and it just got better over the years. Wonderful and thoughtful owners."

Love this place. We always get
Cashew Chick and Moo shoo Pork."

Book your reservation at China
Gourmet without further delay. You'll be glad you did! It's perfect for every occasion."

This is one of my favorite
restaurants for anything from a first date to a birthday. A great menu with more traditional chinese meals and some of the Americanized meals too. Everything I have eaten here is great. I always look forward to coming back!"

Best service in town. Consistently
great. Never a bad experience in past 25 years..."

If you don't know what you want
they will ask you a couple questions then bring you wonderful food you will love. We are never disappointed at China Gourmet. Always a winner"

nestled on the street side with a
steep stair case it does not make much of a street statement. If you park in the back there is a much more accessible entry. The general service was very good, even excellent on the part of the young man clearing the table and helping serve. The food was well prepared and tasty. Our table of 5 shared 4 entrees and were pleased with the dishes. The high light of the evening was the server and upped the overall rating from good or very good to excellent."
Dined on 12/7/2013
We have been eating here for over
30 years and they consistently deliver superior food and service. Tenley has added some new dishes that we enjoy especially his special garlic shrimp. The trout and black bean sauce remains a favorite and for the first time we tried sautéed pea greens. Uniquely good. China Gourmet remains a favorite and when we are in town we always data here."
Dined on 11/23/2013
Try the steamed fish in ginger
sauce (if walleye, one serves two); this will bring you back again and again. Not to mention great soups and appetizers."
Dined on 11/21/2013
One of our favorite places -
especially for great Chinese food that is a big step apart from the common Chinese Buffet fare. We're not in to the bar scene, but they do have one, and the crowd there seems to be enjoying themselves. We're an older couple and enjoy the more sedate dining room - real tablecloths(!) and attentive service. We love it!"
Dined on 10/9/2013
Dependably GOOD quality chinese
food, in a place a dozen steps above most Chinese restaurants. From Quail "tacos" to Lobster in Black Bean Sauce, expect a "Gourmet" approach. AND they remember your name!"
Dined on 9/22/2013
Want more can be said: great food
as always. And as always, the entire staff makes one feel like they are part of the family. Our favorite place to spend a relaxed evening with friends and great food."
Dined on 9/8/2013
If there is a better quality
Chinese restaurant in Cincinnati, we have not found it. China Gourmet is superb! It's menu oriented (no buffet) and they have great soups, appetizers, main entrees, and specialties. Also a nice wine list. And a full bar. But we go there for the fine dining and attentive service."
Dined on 9/4/2013
Great dinner, even though half the
restaurant had lost power! Food was outstanding, service was great. Tenley and his team customized menu choices for our tastes and appetites. Couldn't have had a better dinner."
Dined on 9/1/2013
China Gourmet is our favorite in
Cincinnati. This evening was a dinner with friends, and we all agreed that we are never disappointed when we come here. Mu shu duck, shrimp in lobster sauce, the new chicken, and trout steam-fried in ginger and scallions were our main courses, and each one was terrific. If you don't see what you want on the menu, just ask - and they will cook to your preferences. We love this place and recommend it highly!"

Steak kew, trout with black bean
sauce, and moo shoo duck was all wonderful. We had garlic spinach and Sechwan beans too. The proportion sizes were large enough that we all took some home."
Dined on 8/28/2013
We have been eating here for 30
years and the trout in black bean sauce is our all time favorite. Ask for extra thick bean sauce on the side. The garlic spinach is divine and the Sechwan beans not too hot. The service is always attentive and Tenley always greets us as did his father Bing when he was there. We hope the next generation will continue this fine tradition."
Dined on 8/17/2013
Great variety of very tasty dishes
all well prepared and presented. Excellent service as well ."
Dined on 8/11/2013
It has been years since we ate
here. While food was good, one of our guets had meal served with less sauce than appropriate, which server noted as well (why it was served like that is anybody's guess). Worse, the chicken was less than warm. The waitress had to get a substitute meal in a big hurry. Soy sauce was not on the table, and so it was requesed. But it did not come until we we about halfway through our email. Indeed, after the meal was served, it was difficult o find our server. It may be years, again, before we eat here due to the lackluster service."

. No customers to speak of. Place
looks old and tired. Rather depressing to have so few people dining here"

This is one restaurant our family
has loved since our children were little. (Now 44,42 & 40.) Now our grandchildren love to go there."
Dined on 6/16/2013
We have eaten at China Gourmet for
many years and had felt that the food had "slipped" a bit in the past few years. However, this evening was very pleased with everything. I ordered the Bronzino (steamed with the ginger scallion sauce (which I love)) and it was delicious. The green beans were great as always as well. And our appetizers (spring rolls and spicy shrimp) were cooked perfectly and delicious. The servers were attentive but not overbearing."
