Had lunch at the Blue Gibbon today for the first time. I have to say the food was good and a decent value. The staff was attentive and friendly. The only thing keeping me from giving the Blue Gibbon 4 stars versus 3 is that...More

Experienced terrible and offensive behavior over they messed up my take out order, three times. Including being hung-up on after a third call to get the order corrected. They apologized overly profusely but the damage was done. Food is fair at best - not like...More

Blue Gibbon is a go-to for people at our office. I've been dozens of times over the past 10 years. You can get soup and a entree for around $6. The quality of the food is typical of a Chinese carryout, except for the hot...More

We've never had a bad experience at the Blue Gibbon. It was a nice surprise in an area we weren't familiar with. Not far from I-75. They have a large menu that even pleases the vegan husband with a crispy tofu dish, among other choices...More

The Blue Gibbon is my favorite Chinese restaurant in Cincinnati. The atmosphere is calm and pleasant. It's also one of the best deals around. I've been eating there since it opened, about 35 years ago. They make the best egg foo yung around. The vegetable...More

What a pleasant surprise to find authentic Chinese food in southern Ohio! Very tasty and spicey. They don't even ask you if you want rice with your dish- an annoying trend in American and ridiculous! Nice and spicey too. A couple of criticisms. Like many...More

Weekday lunch. The manager (owner?) seated us. The first thing out of his mouth was "Are you in a hurry?". While we weren't in a hurray, most folks on weekdays are on their lunch break and are in a hurry at lunch time. Our food...More

Our family has been coming here for years and hopefully many years to come! The spicy green beens are delicious and has the best tofu. Is off the beaten path but well worth it to try. You will soon become a regular.
