Best nyc style Chinese food outside nyc. Singapore noodles spot on. Queen chicken and Mongolian beef excellent. Egg roll filling a bit disappointing. Overall will make this a definite stop on all future l a trips.

The staff was very nice and attentive which set the pace for the rest of the night. The food was delicious and the bar was on par with any high end Hollywood restaurant. I would definitely recommend Genghis Cohen to anyone in the area, or anywhere for that matter.

We’ve been going to GC for many years. It’s a go to for very good Chinese food and we’ll be going back for years to come.

The service is very good. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating.

The food is great. Everything we get is tasty and satisfying.

the parking situation is hideous and I would not come back for that reason alone. my guest spent 20 min. trying to get a spot. there is no excuse for not providing valet service which 90% plus of all other LA restaurants do. you really need to fix this!

Always a great place to eat! Food is superb, Staff is courteous. A bit pricey but typical for any high-end Chinese restaurant. Definitely recommend reservations, no matter what day of the week! Prime time to eat is 6:30-7:00

If you want East Coast New York style Chinese food, this is the place. The egg rolls alone are enough to make you drive over from the beach, so delicious!! The chinese mustard is hot, so be warned. They also do most of the menu Gluten Free.

The food and service was excellent, in a fun and cool looking restaurant amongst the classic rock and disco music. At lunch time on a weekday, there was no crowd. It was perfect!

The food is delicious but slightly, expected, greasy. The duck is crispy on the outside and tender meat. It’s supposed to come with scallions but the server always forgets. I assume not on purpose. We do get it when we ask for it . We love cashew chicken but theirs comes with a semi Barbq sauce so we forgo it. Almost everything else you order is great. The service is fine and accommodating . They honor your reservation which is very important. They appreciate your business and you don’t have that feeling from many Chinese restaurants. There is a reason why they have been around for so long.

Without a doubt, the best egg rolls (New York Egg Rolls) I've ever eaten. Everything we had was cooked to perfection and I can't think of one dish that wasn't on the menu. The drinks were made perfectly and they were very generous with the alcohol. It's no wonder they have been at the same location for ages. Highly recommend the "old school" classic.

Not sure if the place has changed hands? Some renovations have been done to the bar area. Sweet and sour chicken was not good. The rest was fine. The order came out in a weird order. Our appetizer well after some of the dishes. I will give it another try though.

I have been eating at Genghis for over a decade and have always had a solid meal. I hadn't been in awhile so I had a craving and took along a friend who had never been. We started with the chicken dumplings which I normally love but were just gross tonight. The inside was hard and tough and really lacked flavor. We ordered the orange chicken with white meat and it was chewy and many pieces of the chicken were inedible. I got my standard Tom Tom Chicken which was meh. They forgot to put the peanuts in the dish (a main ingredient!), there was barely any chicken and the pieces that were in it were thing and slimy not nice thick bites of chicken. My friend also ordered a cocktail and they brought him the wrong kind. I'm hoping they were just off their game and it's not indicative of the restaurant going downhill. Unfortunately, I won't be coming back for a long while to figure it out.
