I had eaten at Gourmet Kingdom many, many years ago. It was awful! When my son suggested it as a Christmas Day option, I was dismissive. But in the face of his conviction that his father was simply a food curmudgeon I relented, and I'm...More

Food was fine, far from the best in the area though. I was incredibly disappointed with the service. I was expecting it to be crazy on Christmas, but it wasn't nearly as crowded as I expected. Unfortunately they were still so frazzled they gave us...More

This is our go-to for Chinese food in the Triangle. The food is reliably delicious and the staff are always friendly and warm. While the ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, the food more than makes up for it!
