We've been multiple times and love Gourmet Kingdom. Favorites include the Kung Pao Lotus Root and Szechuan Spicy Fish. The Eggplant in Garlic Sauce is also good. We haven't tried some of the miscellaneous body parts, but I'm sure they are tasty as well. Some...More

The restaurant does not look like much on Main St in Carrboro, but has a wide variety of real Chinese dishes as well as some of the more American-Chinese fare that is typically found in the US. Service is good and helpful with ordering as...More

I must confess that I've not eaten in the restaurant, only ordered take-out. We usually do Jade Palace, but decided to try GK instead today. Had the General Tso's chicken, which was flavorful but dry, and the Beef & broccoli, which satisfied my craving but...More
