Seamless order only had. "can of coke" for option. Within 1 minute of ordering, I called to request a Diet coke. First put on hold, then lost connection, then put on hold. Finally, spoke with someone who INSISTED there were many drink options. I told her the wording in seamless. She asked for the order number, which she INSISTED began with 200. I looked at iPhone receipt, at email receipt-the order number DID NOT begin with 200. I gave order number, and once more requested diet coke. She said too late-the order was on it's way. Which had to be lie, as it's been 20 minutes since she said it was on it's way.
She was RUDE and I will never order from here again. I don't care if the food is good or not. I fear this is the kind of place that will spit in your food- especially since there was time after she hung up..

Good cheap fast chinese food.
Posted 2 years ago by Chris G.
May be the worst Chinese food in 20 years. Specifically, my shrimp roll was fried to a crisp to the point there was hardly anything left inside the burnt-out shell. And no mustard sauce included, only duck sauce. The steamed dumplings were almost surely frozen, with thick chewy dough and minced pork inside rather than the typical tiny meatballs. The onions in the chicken chow mein were barely sliced with huge chunks of onion including the peel that is usually thrown out, not cooked. The dumplings only came with one dipping sauce which lasted for about 3 of the 8 dumplings. Why give it 2 stars? I selected China "Gourmet" by sorting for cheapest and got what I asked for. And the brown rice wasn't $1.00 extra. Lots of cheap filler, but hey how else can they keep prices so low?

This is the second time in the past eleven days I have had the same negative experience, and this will be the last time.
After 45 minutes, I called the restaurant to check on my order: Her exact response: "I don't know where it is, but I will take your number and call you back."
20 minutes later, I called again and got the same woman. She refused to give me her name, and told me that she had to call the 7 delivery people to check on the order. Again, I gave my number.
20 Minutes later, i called for the 3rd time, and she said: ""You didn't give me enough time to find your order; are you sure you didn't receive it?" That was quite insulting.
After 1 hour and 25 minutes, the food arrived ice cold. I called to complain and of course got the same woman. This time she said: "You got your food. Bye."
Once is bad. Twice is ridiculous. Three times will not be attempted.

Ordered food and never received the delivery. Pick some other restaurant.
Posted 2 years ago by Steven B.
Doesn't make you say "wow" but perfect if you're looking for typical New York Chinese food. Call ahead for lunch time, they tend to get swamped. Pork dumplings are great but allow for an extra 5-7 minute wait time. Also, ask for them half fried half steamed to get some variety.

Minus Zero Rating -- China Gourmet order arrived approximately 1 hr. 45 mins. late. I kept calling the restaurant representative every 30 mins. to find out the status of my order, and the restaurant representative became hostile and was very rude to me. She actually accused me of already receiving. When the delivery man arrived 1 hr. 45 mins. late, I had him wait while I call the restaurant representative and inform her that I was returning the food due to late delivery. She said ok and what do I expect her to do in annoyance. I called Seamless web and reported the incident (1-23-14) and requested a refund for my order. I will not order from China Gourmet in the future!!

The delivery guys is a prick. I have to show restraint whenever I order. The dude thinks he's doing me a favor. Its his job. I'm paying for the food. I expect to be treated like a valued customer. I'm not stingy with tipping. I work in the service industry so I understand what the deal is. The last time I ordered from the place, I had to wait over an hour and a half. Then the delivery guy tells me its because I didn't give him a good tip the last time. Are u kidding? I wanted to knock this dude out. The food was $10 and I gave him a $2 tip. wtf does he expect?
The food is just whatever. The only thing going for the place are the portions . But Who gives a crap about that when the food sucks. I don't know what the deal is with a lot of Chinese restaurants around here. If you think your too good for the customers your supposed to be serving, then maybe you shouldn't be in business!

Not gourmet food but your standard nyc take out Chinese. Good prices, consistent food and delivery, it's the only Chinese in our area that we order take out from. Wong break the bank, hits the spot. We like the egg rolls and fried wontons. Chicken w cashews too.
Posted 2 years ago by Melanie W.
Not exactly gourmet but for Chinese fast-food its perfect-big portions, low prices, and indulging my occasional wish for thick sauces and lots of calories. And, believe it or not, I find the ingredients are reasonably fresh, a function of the huge volume they do.
As to service, I always get mine on time-guessing all the hissy fits are based one time incidents, which can happen. As to alleged rude delivery, suggest my friction-free procedure: a) open door; b) grab food; c) close door. Do not expect the busy, low paid bicycle guy to chat you up, offer an amuse bouche or recommend a wine flight to go with your boneless spare ribs.
Suggest avoid heavily battered food like General Tso Chicken, Sesame Beef, etc- soggy and too sweet-but just about everything else is fine for this type of food.

Terrible customer service. Don't order here!! I was waiting 2 hours for delivery. I called after one hour and was told delivery person is on his way. 45 minutes later I was told the same.

Average chinese food IF/WHEN it actually arrives. The last time I ordered, I waited over two hours for my food, was lied to about it's status (it was out on delivery twice, then hadn't left) and was finally told that it was too cold outside to deliver so I should come to the restaurant and pick it up myself.

The delivery service is THE WORST!! Deliveryman calls and says he's in the lobby, when you go downstairs, he's nowhere to be found. When you call the cellphone # he called you from, he doesn't answer. 7-10 mins later he rides up on his bike and saunters in without as care in the world and in no particular hurry. When asked why he called & said he was in the lobby, he turns slowly and walks away with the food. China Gourmet need not worry about me any future business from me!!!

I usually order the Chicken and Brocolli (very spicy <3 ) from this joint but the last time I ordered there was some extra shredded paper bag in my food that I dont remember ordering. I also placed the order at 11am (which would logically make me one of the first orders of the day) and didnt receive it for a whole hour and a half later. No updates were emailed to me and the estimated delivery time stated 30-45 minutes. They just lost themselves a customer

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE if you are interested in good food, timely delivery and at least fair customer service. Ordered from here and after an hour called to check up on the order. The lady who answered was very nonchalant and told me that if it was too long, I could cancel the order and that she could not even check up on where it could possibly be so late after the promised delivery time.

After being quoted a delivery time of 30-40 minutes, I called to check on my order. I was told the delivery was en route. After another 20 minutes, I called back and was told the delivery person had called me, but was unable to get in touch with me so he left. Mind you I had been salivating by my phone the entire time and it never rang once. I was then told the order was now "on it's way". After another 20 minutes with no food, I called back and the delivery person was unable to be reached. I ended up having to walk to the restaurant to get my food. I was given two free cans of diet coke for my trouble. Never again.

You have THE nastiest food delivery person. Food is not bad for the price. avoid their bbq ribs (looked and tasted like it was cooked days ago drowned in lots of bbq as a cover) and their shrimp rolls (soggy and not fresh made; it was disgusting). delivery guy has nasty phone manners. Get new guy before you lose business because of him.

I used to order from this place every day. The only reason is that the food is really cheap. But I need to reconsider that now because the wait and insult from the delivery guy is intolerable! They usually called u when they still 10 mins away. Today this guys really sucks, I waited in the lobby for 5 mins and still no one's there, then I called him back asking when my food will be delivered, he's extremely RUDE! He actually said I can wait as long as he wish, he can deliver food whenever he like to! What kind of people are you, since you get paid for this, you need to do your job, otherwise, get the hell of of here! Consider the unpleasure and inconvenience, the money I saved (probably only 1 to 2 dollars) cannot make up that. One star is for the manager in restaurant, he's much better than the delivery guy

My egg rolls were burned on the outside, cold on the inside. Instead of immediately replacing them, they offered to send the rolls with my next order. Everyone has an off day, but EVERY time I order from here the food is messed up or my drink is missing. If you dare call them to complain about not receiving a $1 coke be prepared to be treated as if you're trying to steal. I will never order from China Gourmet again.

Just your regular Manhattan Chinese take-out. Very disappointed in seamless order. While food was delivered within the time bracket, there was absolutely no attention/care paid to special instructions, such as "please include chopsticks"... which wasn't a complicated request.

I ordered the General Tso's chicken and broccoli in garlic sauce combo at 11:30PM. Here are some of my thoughts:
1. Food was delivered within the allotted time (I live three blocks away and it took 40 minutes)
2. I requested that both be extra spicy and neither were. I'm not sure where all the flavor is actually. So bland! They also didn't give me any utensils or sauce!
3. General Tso's chicken was soggy and one of the worst I've had in the City.
This is one of the more pricey Chinese food I've ordered and it is not good at all. Yes they are open late but I DO NOT RECOMMEND!

The food is fine for cheap takeout chinese food. My biggest gripe is delivery time. They say 25-40, except I've waited more than that on a couple occasions. I gave them the benefit of the doubt one time because of the rain, but no more. There's plenty of other chinese food in the city that's of the same quality/price.

Some of the worst food in NYC ! I threw most of it away! I should've paid attention to the ratings!!!!!!!
Posted 4 years ago by David Y.
This was one of my favorite restaurants to order from. The food was fresh and delivered in a timely fashion. The reason why I had to take off 3 stars was because I was called a liar after calling numerous times to receive a beverage that was ordered but never delivered. I even placed orders after this incident and still did not get the soda I had ordered. They lost a valued customer over a $1 can of soda. I had no reason to constantly call and say that I had not received if in fact I did. It is sad because in this case, the customer was right.
Second Review: I have ordered from this restaurant quite a few times since this incident and had no problems. I added 2 stars to the rating and we will see how it goes.

is this always the best customer service and gourmet food? of course not. but for the price, and the huge, generous portions (both lunch specials and entrees), i highly recommend the place. regarding the delivery time: i actually have never had a deliver over 20 minutes from this place.. so I suspect the people that said so must live very far away. also, they never got my order wrong a single time and I have ordered for myself, friends, and coworkers (read: very large order)...never got a mistake, ever.

Don't order from this place; the delivery guy just chastised me for giving too small of a tip (about 15%). Complained about it being too late at night. If it's on Seamless that you're open, then don't blame the customer.
Number one rule of business is to treat your customers well; don't order from this place as there are others in the area that are more deserving of your business.

Delivery is fast, prices are great, food is consistent, and sometimes I just large order a tray of their bone-in ribs for dinner. While it's not 'high-end' BBQ, for $10 bucks, it's a delicious bargain and the most under-appreciated item on the menu. Also their chicken and cashew nuts combination platter is a great choice if you're indecisive and want something other than your usual chicken or beef w/broccoli.

the food is passable - cheap chinese, but my review is simply because of the unprofessional delivery man. I placed an order at 7:44pm and received it at 8:50pm (so not within the 40 minute wait time at most) and the delivery man handed me a bag with broken glass in it and snapple tea all in my food and in the bag and then tried to run off. My boyfriend caught him and then made him bring it back. When I called I told them I had glass in my food and they offered to send over 2 free snapples! Um, would you eat food that was drenched and had glass in it?!!! I asked for a refund and was told to call Seamless when it is the restaurant's responsibility to do to. I had to call them for my refund. Just the worst experience for mediocre if not bad, food. I will never order again and hope this review helps you if you are thinking about ordering from this restaurant.... with so many other great chinese establishments that offer competitively low prices and better food, please try them instead. You will be much happier in the end.

Terrible customer service. I ordered the Spare Rib Tips which has the option to get white rice or brown rice with the order, so I chose brown rice. However, when my order arrived it did not come with the brown rice I ordered. When I called the restaurant to notify them that my order was incomplete, I was told that they would not provide the rice because my order amount was too low and they have a problem with the website. However, they noted that several other customers tried to order the rice but instead of phoning them to notify them that there is a problem with the website they just send an incomplete order. Instead of apologizing for the error I was given a nasty attitude. I will not do business with them again.

I have had great luck with China Gourmet. They're always fairly quick (on time) and you get what you pay for. The food isn't amazing, but I'm not ordering from here expecting legitimate "gourmet" food. Portions are large. The steamed pork dumplings are huge and less than $5.

How does a restaurant that hasn't been on SeamlessWeb until this week (12/6/2010) already have 90 reviews dating back years? Something is drastically wrong here!
But for their food and service, they get 4 stars. By far the best take out Chinese food in the NY area. Always fast, always read the additional information for each item so they get delivered as ordered and while they have raised their prices a bit, they are very reasonable, especially since no other takeout chinese food can match it.

Great value but not that good. Greasy. Also, I ordered wonton soup but they gave me egg drop soup with wontons in it. I called and asked and apparently they were out of the regular wonton soup broth. It was weird.

Great-tasting Chinese food with amazing portions at a price that cannot be beat.

I get this literally at least once a week. Lunch specials are good and delivery is prompt. $5 minimum is also nice if you just want a snack.

Food is good, plentiful and not perfect price wise for Manhattan.

My go to place for Chinese in Midtown West. I'm addicted to their egg rolls. They've never put mushrooms in my moo shu when I ask them not to - this alone is amazing (I've had problems with that at other places). Have tried a variety of dishes, all of them at least decent.I do wish the chicken and shrimp tasted better when reheated, but that's not a dealbreaker.

Good food and great prices! Sesame chicken is my favorite, but the noodles and egg rolls are good too!

RUDE. Rudest people I have ever dealt with. I spoke with the woman on the phone, and when she was rude, I got smart with her right back. I am 100% sure they spit in my food. The delivery guy had a look on his face like he hated me. I am a nice person, I work in hospitality. This is by far the worst Chinese restaurant in town.

I paid an extra $1 for "Only White Meat" in my General Tso's Chicken and didn't get that. It was the worst General Tso's, I've ever had. It was fatty, wet, and the broccoli was hidden under the "chicken". They didn't even give me a fork. Will not be ordering from here again.

delivered during a blizzard, good food, HUGE portions, great prices! love them!

Absolutely love this food. I always order the shrimp with broccoli combo. it comes with an egg roll, and a ton of really amazing pork fried rice. the shrimp really fresh. and it usually takes 3 sittings to finish the whole thing. so for $7-$8, this is one of my favorite things to order off of Seamless.

I love this place, and yes... they give you a LOT of food.
Posted 5 years ago by Justin W.
General Tso's Chicken was the best I have had in years. Pork and Cabbage soup, egg roll, dumplings, everything I order from here is amazing. The only Chinese takeout I will be using. Thanks!

Decent Chinese food that warrants 3 stars. But the excellent price and speedy service gives it an extra star.

This is actally a rating for an order I called in 1/8/11. The food tasted contaminated (like NYC trash) in some parts of it. I've only had this experience once at one other food place and it also was in Hells Kitchen. Really gross. I just threw it out.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER! Upon placing my order, the delivery man REFUSED to come up to my apartment and called me REPEATEDLY, yelling into the phone, for me to come down, not to the lobby, but OUTSIDE where he was smoking a cigarette and didn't even get off his bicycle.
NEVER ORDERING FROM HERE AGAIN.

Pretty good food, and the prices are great. The servings aren't huge, but they are decent for the price and midtown location. Delivery is very speedy!

Ordered a combo .. placed order at 7:45 p.m -- now 8:30 p.m. - no food and when I call they have no idea what I am talking about ... horrible customer service ... will never order again!
Posted 6 years ago by Jessica C.
I should have read the review before ordering... I had to wait at the 1st floor of my office building for 10 minutes after the delivery guy called me and said that he is already there. When the delivery guy who barely spoke English finally got here, he was angry because (I think he was trying to say that) I did not give him $2 tip for my $5.40 lunch. Food was actually not bad though.

This food was horrible! 3 hard/burnt orders that this place wouldn't take back, or replace. I was told I had to request it not burn....please. A rating is required but this place deserves NONE!
Posted 6 years ago by Leon S.
They are horrible. Worst customer service I've ever received. We've ordered from them a few times, and always had food missing. Then we have to call and fight with them over a missing rice, which they refuse to redeliver. Horrible service!

Extremely rude delivery person, do not order from her unless you want someone to hell and curse at you while mishandling your food. Absolutely disgusting and unacceptable.

The flavor of the food was marginal; I had requested the delivery of mustard with the order which was ignored and might have enhanced the dishes to an acceptable level; and the order, which was supposed to arrive in 25 - 40 minutes, took one and one half hours to arrive.

I was impressed. I have not had the best of luck ordering from Chinese places to my hotel but this was a different story. The food was fresh, quick, and taste great. The order was accurate and hot when delivered. I had the Shrimp Rolls which had shrimp, Egg Drop Soup (note to self ask for Green onion for garnish), and the General Tsaos. Great eats and good service.

Honestly, no joke - good food & large portions. It's nothing special, typical americanized Chinese food, but they do a great job with it.

Will never order from here again. Last 2 times I ordered food from here I was very ill afterwards. I can't reccomend a place that has made me throw up twice to anybody. My friend ordered the sweet and sour chicken and found a BONE in it.
Do yourself a favor, order from any place other than here.

Worst Chinese food in NYC. The sauce on the chicken & broccoli has too much corn starch and tastes bland. They have low prices, but the food is also low quality..
Posted 7 years ago by Kinson A.
Wow, it is cheap, but not worth it. Ordered Kungpao chicken and pork fried rice. Kugpao chicken was more batter than chicken and pork fried rice had a weird smell that made it inedible. And I can eat almost everything.

exactly what I was expecting, your typical mall food and a shit ton of it! So much food amazing, great won-ton soup and egg roll.

Sesame chicken was almost all crispy skin and no meat after I paid to have "white meat only." The fried rice was yellow which reminded me of spanish rice but did not taste as good. Good value but you get what you pay for.
Posted 7 years ago by Sonya S.
The food has been good but the delivery guy just gave me lip today since he said it took him 30 minutes to deliver to me. But it is in the ordering delivery range and I gave him a 20% tip! He told me not to order from there again!!!

If you are a vegetarian, don't order from here. No idea what they do to their food, but I tried this place 2x, and both times food was greasy and tasted like it was cooked with meat. Also, delivery guys had major attitude, even though I included a generous tip.

Wonton soup with real meat and large wontons. Light and flaky egg roll. Tasty and well-made beef with snow peas. Pork fried rice was basic but not greasy. Overall excellent choice. I hope they dont raise prices. If they do, I would still recommend as a top west side chinese.

General Tso's was average, and a little too crunchy. The pork fried rice was yellow, which is weird. The egg roll was average.
