The menu selections are overwhelming in number. based on my limited take-out sampling of 3 items if they are all as good, I plan on eating in there. Between the sushi and open grille how can you go wrong???

I have done a review here before, in 2015. Since then, I have to say, their take out has become hit or miss. Add to that, the consistently rude service at the front desk and we have decided that this Chinese Restaurant will no longer be our go to. There are two others in Marblehead and two in Salem that...

We go to this Chinese/Japanese restaurant and also have dinner delivered a couple times per month. We have probably tried two-thirds of the items on the menu and have always enjoyed our meals. Some excellent options are their sushi which is top shelf, and salt and Pepper shrimp with garlic noodles, Peking duck with moo shu, and too many others... More

Neat as clean with semi unfriendly front staff . I usually do take out so can't really say as to wait staff. Place seems clean and has the best sushi around

I went to Gourmet Garden for lunch and was very pleased with my meal. I ordered off of the lunch menu--C25--Gung Bo Chicken. It's served with soup and either white or pork fried rice. Tea is available on request, and it's hot and tasty. The food was fresh, and cooked to order. Since my meal was spicy, I ordered it... More

One of the best Chinese restaurants on the north shore. Food is always delicious and the service is very good. Bartender Mike is super friendly and the Gourmet Garden is our go to place when visiting the grandchildren in Marblehead.

The atmosphere is great. The service is pretty good and the food is usually good. Family friendly, But also good for solos or couples. Easy to get to. Would recommend.

Gourmet Garden is our "go to" restaurant when we are in the mood for Chinese food. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating, and the food (and drinks!) are always top notch. We usually go to the GG in Swampscott, but have also found ourselves at the one in Hingham. Same story there too. Good food, great people ...... More

Twice we've gone here for dinner with an extended family group. We order a bunch of different dishes, so family members (some of whom are not daring eaters) can sample some Asian dishes they would never order on their own. No one has ever gone home with an empty stomach.
