Won Ton Gourmet has terrific Chinese food. The pot stickers are scrumptious and very filling. If you like Mu Shu chicken or pork, it is an excellent dish served with pancakes and plum sauce. The fried rice is also very tasty and not overly salty as you sometimes find. Servings are very generous and reasonably priced. Won Ton also serves... More

I loved all the dishes we ordered, super authentic, amazing FLAVORS, very clean food and local... I was impressed with service, food knowledge, and initiative to assist with ordering food that was off the beaten path for Chinese.

Been going here for years and still love the food! Won Ton Gourmet is in the style of a short order noodle house. You order fast and are served fast! The location is large and has a bit of an echo, but it definitely feels like a communal dining experience. The Won Ton soup is the best of the burbs!... More

i'll start by saying i've been to the place many time.. last all times, wait / bus staff are prompt to bring tea and take our order. order this visit was singapore noodle & wonton noodles. singapore noodles was decent as usual, but the wonton noodles appear to be shrinking, if this keeps up, i may reconsider future visits.

Have eaten here several times since it is close to where I work. I like the Noodle Soup with Shrimp Dumplings and the egg rolls are good. Out of several different dishes that I've tried I'd say the food is fair to good. Clean establishment with high ceilings & floor to ceiling windows. Some members of wait staff can be... More

Won Ton Gourmet was a tiny frequented by the Asian community. Then they built a large standalone facility a block away. Maybe its the atmosphere, maybe the staff changed, but something happened. The food is acceptable Chinese cuisine, but it is a little pricey and not as good as when it was a hole in the wall.

we highly recommend this restaurant!! The food is consistently good and the staff is usually very friendly. We recommend the steamed pot stickers, house fried rice, and chicken and broccoli with chow fun noodles. The chinese broccoli is also delicious!! If you have a sweet tooth after your meal head next door to Dairy Queen!

We came during lunch. The wonton noodle soup was amazingly good. It definitely hit the spot. The service can be average - does remind me of Chinatown service. Sometimes you get good service and sometimes not so much. Not that this is an excuse, just be prepared that your server may not approach you with a pleasant smile. They just... More

Staff actuslly stared at us while we ate was over friendly then waiter was rude and asked for more tip from us which we gave when we left. How rude to ask us though, the food was not good and they only served water to drink which is kinda wierd. The staring unnerved us while we ate. This was for... More
