New Owners now advertise Thai Food as well as Chinese ! Exciting, right ? No ! This is never a good sign but the Wife LOVES their Wonton Soup as it was legendary along with their Egg Rolls under the former Owners....

I spent three nights in West Dundee recently; I drove by Gilbert's the 1st evening on my way back to the hotel. There were far more cars out front (Gilbert's is in a small strip plaza) than seemed likely for such a small place. Next night I stopped in to try it out. Gilbert's is a Take-OUT only establishment.

They have excellent food, are pleasant, and the food is always ready when I come to pick it up. It is easy to access from route 31. They have a large menu and chairs to sit if one needs to wait. Their take out restaurant waiting area is always clean also.

Wow, Gilberts used to be THE go to Chinese restaurant for us. We would order from there frequently because their food was delicious and they were fast. Now that Gilbert has retired and they have new owners the food is not as good as it used to be. We were told that they were using all the same recipes that... More

I always come here when I want take-out. The fried rice, crab ragoon and egg rolls set the standard I hold other places to when I am elsewhere.

Got a 'small' order of noodles for lunch, turned out it was so big it became my lunch and dinner. Good price, though food was just OK. The person there was friendly, though food took a while to be ready. This is really a takeout place, only 1 or 2 tables to sit.
