We ordered the two lunch specials that came with fried rise & wonton soup. The food tasted greasy. The soup had no taste whatsoever! My sweet & sour chicken went back because they poured the sauce all over it. My food was swimming in it!! My husband got the general Tso chicken & he didn't like it at all. As... More

Have enjoyed Jinlan for years! This past winter I took my girlfriend and her two sons (18 & 22) and we all had plenty of good food and leftovers too! Went again with some out of town guests and their two vegetarian daughters; no burgers or wings for them :-) Everyone was very pleased with the food and the ample... More

Tasty Chinese food!only place I've found General Tso that I actually enjoy. I would recommed the restaurant and they also have take out. We primarily order takeout as the restaurant itself seems in good need of a cleaning. Apparently, I don't mind ignoring that when it comes to the food and it being so tasty... :)

I ordered takeout because I was going to a shop in the same block. It was so greasy! My fried dumplings were mushy and, though the moo shu was palatable, the pancakes were smashed into a bag (like your egg rolls come in) and were super greasy as well. This place used to be very good. I'll never go there... More

Went here in Januaray, while exploring what Kenmore has to offer for Chinese food. I ordered the chicken curry, which was a bit bland for my taste; however, I spiced up my left overs at home and it was very good. My husband had the General Tso's chicken. This is what makes me give the high rating. I am usually... More

I visited Jinlan with my boyfriend after suggesting it based on having been there years ago. As I remembered, the food was great! I had the lomein and he had some sort of chicken dish. Can't complain (although the soup was only ok at best). The only issue that I had was that the restaurant has not changed in 10+... More

I'm amazed nobody has reviewed this place yet. It has been one of the gems of Kenmore, for sure. Another feather in the place's cap is their being featured in a scene of the recent movie, 'Henry's Crime' starring Keanu Reeves and James Caan. They filmed that scene at the table I'm most often seated at, and it makes me... More
