We were in a rush and did not plan dinner reservations during the standard pre-theatre time. We ended up at Gene’s by default and it did not disappoint! The service was good, the food was quick and very tasty!

I went in for an early dinner because I was craving vegetables and figured I could get that at a Chinese Restaurant. There were a few choices. The food was rather bland and, by that, I don't mean to complain that it was not spicy....More

Everything was yummy, hot and perfect! I’m not sure why some people would complain? The interior could use a little uplift and updating but the food was delicious. Going back for sure!!!

I am a resident of Stratford and I find this restaurant offering very inferior Chinese food. The restaurant itself is a bit dreary.

Same Chinese Food menu as you would have seen in the 60's. Classics done just as you would expect. Perfectly cooked and presented every time. This is about as textbook a Chinese restaurant as you can get.

Average Food and Prices - a pretty typical place. Nothing especially notable either good or bad. Downtown location.
