The server was nasty, food was awful and on top of it wanted to charge us a "sur-charge" for using a credit card!!!! Will never be back.....

My first Gin Gin experience was years ago when my family first moved to the area. I tried it because it was close by and was not all too impressed as it wasn't the best we've had. We have since become loyal customers of Tin Tin in Kenmore but recently gave Gin Gin a second chance, again because of its... More

I have been to this restaurant twice and both times have been disappointed. Will not be going back. This last time the General Tso's chicken was inedible. With so many options in town for Chinese food I would advise everyone to go elsewhere.

Asked for cash or to pay an additional 5% if paying by CC. No receipt, forgot large egg drop soup in our takeout order. Shrimp eggrolls and spring rolls burnt and spiced sweet and WEIRD. Lo Mein was very dry, Orange Chicken tough and way undercooked and broccolli was raw. They said 10 minutes...it took 35.

Average (nothing special) food, with useless BAD service. Most important is that this place isn't clean. It's a health hazard! Everything's sticky and dirty! Door to the kitchen opened, and I couldn't believe that I actually saw fresh chicken in a sink with dirty dishes!!! YECCHHH! Check out this restaurant's Erie County Health inspection report and you'll see for yourself!... More

I have been eating here for many years because they have an extremely large menu. The Food is Good and it is at a very reasonable price with large portions.The owner is always there and is very friendly and helpful. If I have a complaint it is that it can be kind of slow at times. Still the food is... More

Not sure what folks find appealing about this place. Went there on a Friday night, there was one person taking all the orders, both for take-out and for those eating in the restaurant. She also was taking care of the cash register. Apparently a hostess or a second waitress would be out of the question. Now for the food. We... More

We came after friend's recommendation to have some dim sum. But the dishes there suck. First of all, their service took forever。 Secondly, two of the dishes were so salty we couldn't take at all! We asked the server to tell the chef but I guess he never did 'cause nothing happened...Thirdly, the rice noodle roll, was fried!!! I've been... More

It's not fancy, but Gin Gin consistently serves great food, from perfect won ton and hot and sour soup to delicious pan-fried dumplings, all the way up to sophisticated healthy - the steamed shrimp, scallops and vegetables was a mainstay of my 70 pound weight loss program. But the menu is enormously sophisticated, the weekend dim sum is delightful, and... More
