The Most Amazing Orange Chicken On the Planet
Reviewer: golden_child90046 via Citysearch | 1/29/2011
Nobody knows Chinese food like Gourmet 88. When the weekend hits, little compares to a day of shopping on the Burbank strip, a movie with a friend topped with dinner and drinks at Gourmet 88. The Orange Chicken is Unreal, the Pepper Steak…
Nice sit down chinese food in Burbank!
Reviewer: Joy C via Insider Pages | 7/19/2010
I was mad that I hadnt tried this place before! Their portions were huge family sized platters and because the service is used to having large parties they were on top on things. The food was good, but i'd only go here with a party of 4 or…

The best Chinese food in town. The braised string beans and the sweat and pungent shrimp is my favorite, but all the dishes I have had are delicious. The service is excellent.
Best New Chinese Restaurant
Reviewer: Misawa83 via Citysearch | 9/25/2008
Best service and delicious food. I ordered the pineapple chicken and my boyfriend ordered the spicy eggplant with a giant bowl of hot and sour soup. Everything was amazing. We live in Glendale and usually commute to Brentwood for Chinese.…

Great Food, Great Service
Reviewer: leanmeaneatingmachine via Citysearch | 6/1/2007
This restaurant brings you closer to China with its traditional dishes. I'm a vegetarian and they have a lot of selection for vegetarians. I, personally, liked the Bean Curd Soup, the Graised String Beans and found that the Vegetable Egg…

The Best Orange Chicken
Reviewer: sppk0619 via Citysearch | 5/4/2006
The best orange chicken I've ever had. There is no comparison to other places for this dish. This is the place to be for Chinese Food.
must have the dumplings
Reviewer: Maira G via Insider Pages | 3/27/2006
I must admit that I eat here a few times a month but it is hard to resist thier pan fried dumplings. Sometimes all I order are dumplings. It can get a little busy on the weekends but is worth the wait.

Waitstaff was quick, friendly, attentive and informative. The food arrived quickly and steaming hot. The orange chicken was the best I've had. The string beans were cooked perfectly, and so was the asparagus. The sizzling rice soup was…
Not so great Chinese
Reviewer: Elizabeth W. via Judy's Book | 9/26/2005
Tried Gourmet 88 a few times and have never liked the food, as much as I would like to. White table clothes on round tables; quiet, large dining area; good dining atmosphere, it seems the perfect place for good Chinese dining. Problem is…
Best Chinese in Burbank
Reviewer: roxy via Citysearch | 6/10/2002
