this restaurant delivers
On Sunday, May 24, 2015, my daughter and I had lunch at the China Gourmet Restaurant at 210 Millwood Avenue in Winchester, Virginia. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Friday, Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:30 PM; Sunday, 11:30 AM-9:30 PM. Carryout service is available, along with delivery of $10.00 minimum orders within 5 miles. The telephone number is (540) 722-3333, and the menu is at www.chinagourmetva.com. On-line orders are not accepted. The restaurant has off-street parking, and the entrance vestibule has two outside doors. A counter on your right as you enter is not a serving bar, but bottles are behind it on the wall. The front and back walls of this room each have three booths; in addition there are tables in the center. Stylized Chinese decorations and pictures hang on the walls. The left wall has a large mirror that creates an illusion of additional space, along with a typical Oriental beaded curtain in the doorway to rest rooms. A large aquarium in front of the mirror has two sizeable goldfish. A smaller room in the back has a large round table in the center and two tables on the right. An aquarium with a number of goldfish is here. The eight-page menu’s categories include Polynesian Drinks, Appetizers, Soups, Seafood, Tofu, Pork, Poultry, Beef, Chef’s Recommendations, Dinner Special Combo, Rice Noodles, Egg Foo Young, Vegetarian Delights, Chow Mein, Fried Rice, Noodles, and Dessert. We started with a Shrimp Toast Appetizer. My daughter ordered Mu Shu Pork with cabbage, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, eggs, plum sauce, and crepes for wrapping. I had Imperial Scallops with broccoli, bamboo shots, mushrooms, and other vegetables in a light sauce. Each order was accompanied by a large bowl of white rice, and hot tea was in a large metal pot. The appetizer was quite tasty. My daughter liked her pork dish and saved half of it to take home. I found the scallops a little bland and had to add soy sauce for flavor; I would not order them again if I came back. The servings were generous and neither of us had room for dessert. The China Gourmet is an old-fashioned Chinese restaurant that my wife and I had first visited 30 or more years ago. It does not seem to have changed by adding Sushi or dishes from other Oriental cuisines. It has nothing special to recommend it, and I do not have it on my keeper list.
Never again. Ordered for delivery, general tso's chicken extra spicy, shrimp toast and a spring roll. Everthing was luke warm and obviously previously frozen and then microwaved. It was all very disappointing. General Tso's should arrive in a container with a sauce and broccoli. Ours arrived dry and pasty in a container meant for
Most of their food is good. I love that there is still a little bit of shrimp in the egg rolls. But tonight, I was disappointed on several counts. Looking forward to a good steamed dumpling, I tasted liver in it tonight. It was not good. That's a first. So, I'd be careful of the wonton soup, too. My fried rice tasted a little different tonight. Last but not least, our bill was not accurate. They charged more than they should have. Since it was a delivery, we now have to go there tomorrow to get credited back.
