The food here is hot (temperature) and delicious! I had the Gourmet Curry noodles and extra veggies were added when I asked. The spicy level was just right. Service was great, too. I highly recommend and will visit again.

Trust the reviews! While this restaurant flaunts an unassuming exterior, it only takes a passing through the doors to see that they take pride in ownership. I'm still getting to know the area and Chinese takeout was on my mind. It's challenging to find that perfect spot to fill the void of your hometown restaurant that got your order perfect and delivered. The menu was vague and a little confusing, so I made a call to find out what their idea of Singapore Rice noodles (N8) was. It sounded similar to what I ordered at home (Singapore Chow Mei Fun) only you had one choice of meat instead of shrimp, pork & chicken combined. I also had to ask about the All Veggies Chicken (C8), which was the closest to Moo Goo Gai Pan that I could see (it was). I didn't want to make the same mistake I did before and assume, because it came in brown sauce from another restaurant and my daughter wouldn't eat it. Once I got clarification on the menu items, I placed my order for pick up within 15 minutes. Minus a star for lack of details on the menu. The dining room was charming and beautifully decorated, and I was greeted upon entering. While the service was top notch, the food was amazing! Next time I'll make a point of coming in for a sit down meal.

Delish food, very fresh and well prepared. My hubby had the sweet and sour shrimp, said it is the first time outside of a restaurant in China town that he has had shrimp that were not breaded, and perfectly prepared. I had bbq pork crunchy noodles, also delicious. Highly recommend and we WILL be going back!

I have no idea how this place has almost 5 stars. The food was bland, the rice was like they had scooped steamed rice and then just tossed in some eggs and veggies. All of the veggies in our dishes were raw, not even a bit sauted. All of the dishes we ordered seemed as though nothing was cooked together as though they added the protein, sauce,, and veggies at the last moment and threw it on the plate. The tea tasted like dirty dish water,absolutely no flavor, despite adding sugar it was like drinking warm water with sugar. All 4 of us were very disappointed with all of out food.

Been coming here for about 2 years. Always fast, hot and not expensive. They're very consistent with wait time usually 10 min. Also good always taste the same. Amazing.

Absolutely delicious! Seriously go here and try their food! We went on a Friday night and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Super friendly staff and great service.

My friends and I had really really good Chinese food here. We dined in and it was wonderful. The place is small and cozy decorated beautifully. The server was pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Okay, now, the part you really care about ... The food. The menu has lots to choose from. We chose a mix of dishes including beef, chicken, and pork, along with white and fried rice, plus egg rolls. The meats were tender and flavorful and the vegitables we're garden fresh. I noticed here that the food is not too salty as you find in many Chinese restaurants. They have real flavor from the ingredients without having to over salt and sauce. My only regret is that once the food came I forgot all about taking pictures for you. You'll have to wait for me to go back, or just go yourself. You won't be disappointed.

The Mushroom Shrimp dinner with zucchini, carrots, mushrooms and fried rice. Veggies were fresh and tender, sauce was delicious! Too much for one meal.....I love leftovers!

I had read all the reviews and everyone has been giving five stars to this place so I decided to order from there and customer service is good flavors of food is OK the cost is this too much for what they give you I ordered two sweet-and-sour shrimp and there was maybe four shrimps in it disappointing,.

The food here is absolutely amazing and delicious. Was blown away by the portion size and taste. In the photos here are garlic beef (spicy) with steamed rice, seseme chicken with fried rice, and the beef Singapore rice noodles. You can choose different meat and even veggie options depending on your preference. The building is small and the parking is a little wonky. But I'm definately coming here for the food again and again. I got a 'super hot' (they have varying levels of spices you can choose from if you ask the waitress). I felt a spicy pepper kick and can say it was surprising to finally have a food that was actually spicy (most places say food is spicy when my tolerance says otherwise).

I'm surprised more people have not gone to or talked about China Gourmet. As a Korean American, I've tried plenty of Asian restaurants in Salem and unfortunately, there are not many that make me happy. My sister and I came here by chance after visiting two other restaurants that were closed. The visit here just happened to be a happy accident. We ordered the Sesame Chicken, Garlic Sauce Beef, and their special (not on the menu) Beef Singapore Rice Noodles. The portions are big and if you're someone with a big appetite like me, you'll be leaving here comfortably full. If you can handle spice then get their extra hot. It's not your typical American hot and spicy. It's that actual Asian hot and spicy. Had me sweating a bit. Definitely give this place a try. Just a heads up the parking is shared with an autobody shop so parking will be limited. Might have to park across the street and walk over.

Jeff you shouldn't use toothpaste before you go out to eat, giving this place less then ***** Star's is just another place of business being jealous for what these awesome cook's put out in this restaurant. I have to say this restaurant is absolutely the best I have eaten at, I haven't had food this good in any Chinese restaurant in Oregon Although I do give honest reviews this one takes 1st place, We had sesame chicken, mushroom chicken and gourmet fried rice with 8 amazingly tasty spring rolls was a better deal and very healthy portions and piping hot. I would recommend anyone that thinks they have the best Chinese place to eat, to come try the best..I'LL BE BACK!! oh not to forget the peanut people that give bad reviews, y'all know Chinese places use peanut oil and sauce it the way the food is cooked so maybe ya should keep eating American food, but I guess it's a way to get a free meal if your that hard up..
