A diner from Rhinebeck, NY gave an overall rating of 1  out of 5 stars on March 10, 2013 @ 11:13 PM

 Crucifying a restaurant in a review is something I take very seriously and haven't done before. I don't do it now without a lot of thought, HOWEVER, this was the worst meal I've ever had at a Chinese Restaurant. Bad food. ridiculously high prices, strange vibe, strange ambience.

Maybe it was the chef's night off -- it was Sunday. Maybe it was a slow, sad night for the waitress, who was very inattentive.

Maybe we were in a bad mood. Maybe, maybe, maybe.

But, in the end, it was lousy food for too much money.

The story of the night can only be told with snippets:

-- There are single bottles of top shelf liquor in tall display cases in the dining room -- bizarre. And the presence of high priced liquor bottles does nothing to justify the prices.

-- Although we didn't order sushi, I can't imagine it was good enough to justify @5.50 for tuna sushi a la carte. (but, we didn't order it so it's possible that sushi is their forte, i guess)

-- The potted plants next to the front door were covered in discarded coffee cups and unappetizing trash

-- The dining room was empty and silent until we asked for them to turn music on. The waitress put on Christmas music. That might have been the high point of the night, for desperately needed comic relief.

-- On our first, and last visit, we took about an hour to eat on a Sunday night and not one person came into the restaurant while we were there. After the meal it was obvious why the place was empty.

-- Hot and sour soup had little taste at all and surely not any a hot or sour taste. We had to send it back. (Which they did, gladly. This is to their credit, I guess)

-- Chicken dumplings were surely the poorest quality frozen dumplings available. We ate them because we were hungry.

-- The free crunchy noodles were the very good kind, not the thin stale ones.

 WOW, the person who wrote the review from Red Hook must work at China Rose in Rhinecliff, haha. Talk about a scathing review.

We've eaten at C Gourmet off and on for 8 years. The food is always predictable, not incredible, but not awful. Delivery is always prompt, I've never had rude service. I do have to say that we avoid the appetizers, as their egg rolls definitely are tough and chewy and mostly cabbage.

I wish I could find something in between the greasy-but-more-traditional Engs and C Gourmet which tends to be lacking a bit in flavoring. I think we've tried ALL of them around here.

 We have been ordering take-out from Engs for years. We've always loved it. But recently the service is starting to slip. Last night was probably the last time we will order from them. We ordered our food at 5:40 pm and 3 phone calls later, several re ...

 I have been going to Engs since I was a kid with my family for over 30years. I now live an hour and half away from Kingston, but still head to Eng's once a month for their great dishes.

 Simply put, THE best Chinese food in Ulster County. Real egg rools that have to be tasted to be appreciated. Not just stuffed with cabbage filling. The Chicken lo mein is to die for. They have been around for a long time and one taste will tell you w ...

 This is not your typical fast food chinese restaurant! Their fried rice is not that yellow stuff with peas and carrots in it. It is fried rice made the right way. And their egg rolls are nothing like what you would find in other restaurants. They ...
