Food here is delicious and the price is great, my kids make me travel across town for the egg rolls. Anytime I ask were they wanna go eat, its always Gins!

I have been a long time fan of Gins. The servers are efficient and friendly. The food is all delicious. It is cooked perfectly, fresh and is always served hot. The "SALTY SHRIMP" is a real treat (not too salty) -I highly recommend it. It is a little difficult to find but it is well worth it at lunch time... More

Great, quick, friendly service and nice lunch specials! We've been here a couple of times and it really is a good choice for Chinese food! Wish it was closer to where I live and we could order take-out!!

The food is absolutely amazing. I've been coming here forever!! I definitely recommend the orange chicken, and pan fried dumplings. They have the best green beans I've tasted. Consistently Gin's has served us well.

Very yummy - it's hard to find good Chinese food in SA, but we had to try as we've heard great things about Gin. We started with Fried Pork Dumplings and Crab Rangoons - both had a lot of filling and they were so good! I normally wouldn't order the dumplings fried, but did based on previous good reviews and...

This is one of the restaurants we really miss. Food is fantastic, the portions are overflowing, the price is still so cheap. Service is good and fast. The fried dumplings make your mouth water.

I've been going to this place since 1995 and not much has changed, that includes the decor. The service leaves a lot to desire, but the food is really good. I always get Kung Pao Chicken and Crab Rangoons.

I looked for a close to home chinese where I could call in and pick up quick. So Gins won out. Especially people said Lemon Chicken is good. I called to make sure all white meat, it is and so I ordered it w/white rice and 1 egg roll. Generous servings, nice people, chicken was good, but sauce is Orange... More

Excellent chinese food but the interior and the ceiling with water leaking stained should have been clean, it made me think about their kitchen what it look like?
