China Gourmet


Cantonese chow mein


Young chow fried rice


Crispy ginger chicken


I pass by this restaurant everyday and have never really thought anything of it. Just another greasy Chinese fast-food joint. So I was craving greasy Chinese food and decided to finally give this place a shot.

Given that it looks like your typical greasy hole-in-the-wall place, I had low expectations. I just wanted my greasy fix. But I was pleasantly surprised. The portions were large and the food was actually pretty okay and not as greasy as I thought it would be. My only complaint is that the fried rice could have had more meat/vegetables as it was about 90% rice. Other than that, food came out in less than 5 minutes, so that was nice too (there were no other diners and there were three cooks, so that is probably why). Food was served in take-out containers even though I dined in.

Overall not a bad place for quick Chinese food in the York Mills/Don Mills area.
