  • I live in Dallas, Texas - hardly the Asian Cuisine capital of North America. Born and raised in San Francisco and travel extensively for business worldwide. So, when I came to Toronto today, looking for a good Chinese restaurant, I came to this site and went to Gourmet Express based on the recommendations. I had two entirely different items - #53 and #104. Like the people there, and the service was very fast, but this is the wok version of McDonald's.

    Overly salty. Fatty meat. Swimming in sauce to (cover up) the otherwise poor quality. Hot and tasteless. Sometimes one will find gems in these downbeat immigrant areas. This is not one of those times. My standards are not so high that I am overlooking the positive at this place. However, no ambience, a fairly seedy area (I would not want to be there late in the evening), and tasteless (mind you, not BAD, just not real Chinese wok stir fry) food. Cannot recommend and certainly would not return.

  • Order: two main entrees

  • Every time I either dine there or order in the food is amazing and so are the staff. My order is usually delivered within 20-30 mins, usually less than that.
    The food is phenomenal. Not overly greasy. There are rarely any leftovers. I really suggest the gyoza dumplings.
    Large portions and well priced.
    The wait for food is never very long. The staff are amazingly friendly. Clean restaurant. Always warm, always busy (but not so busy that you won't get your order quickly. The staff usually remember customer faces too and greet everyone with a smile.

  • Order: gyoza, bbq pork, lo mein (all of them), fried rice, orange chicken, wonton soup, wontons, spicy peanut chicken, spring rolls, lemon chicken, chicken wings, and other things

  • I have had deliveries from this place several times and enjoyed every single time the food was brought to me. The food is fresh, hot and tasty, what more can you ask for? As for dinning there I haven't done but I shall do that one of these days.

  • Order: I ordered rice with shrip and chicken crisp bundle.
