We just needed an easy Chines take-out dinner on our first night in Santa Cruz for a week. We shared a broccoli with snow peas and an order of pork with hot garlic sauce. Both were fine. The woman at the counter was exceptionally welcoming...More

This is a great place to order and take out, friendly staff, small but food is great. Love ordering to take home.

Some of the folks reviewing this place rated it excellent, enough to tip the scales to give it 4.5 'stars'. While it was a fine enough little place, I wouldn't say it knocked our socks off. We had egg rolls (meh), fried rice with shrimp...More

We normally like this place. Tonight the soup was overly sugared/sweetened, the Gung Po was bland and the chow mein just so-so. We're hoping this was an off night because it used to be one of our fave Chinese establishments

My bride loves Chinese food. Picked Guang Zho because it was a hole-in-the-wall but looked clean. One of the biggest challenges finding quality Chinese food is not too much grease with some spicy flavors as an option, not just flavorless Cantonese style full of slimy...More

Have had difficulty finding a great and reasonable Chinese restaurant in Santa Cruz. Guang Zho may just be that place. My wife and I had lunch there recently and really enjoyed it. I grew up in San Francisco eating in Chinatown, mostly Cantonese style. Guang...More
