GIANT waste of time and money.
SO there is all these good reviews right. Well IGNORE those. First of all, we sat there for 15 minutes until someone took our order. Once order was taken, my boyfriend did not get his soda until 10 minutes later. Food came out 25 minutes after that, the first dish that was brought out was LUKE WARM, the second was SUPER HOT. Great consistency there isn't it!? The server barely talked to us until it was time to pay the bill, then she was all smiles and apologetic blaming the hostess for not telling her that we were there. Really? You couldn't see us sitting right next to your other 2 or 3 tables you had? Food was MEDIOCRE at best, I have gone to take out food places that were better then this place. For the price point it is definitely not worth it, especially due to the bad service.
Great Chinese Food, and Fascinating Service.
I had my first Guo Bin food experience, and it was great! Noah was our waiter, and he's a riot! Highly recommended--the chicken dish offered the dinner-for-three meal was the most tender I've ever had.
The best restaurant in St. Louis!.
Guo Bin is my favorite restaurant in all of St. Louis...which is funny since my favorite food happens to be Mexican and I've never really been a big fan of Chinese. Guo's food is fast and fresh...not like some other Chinese joints whose food tastes processed and plain (sorry P.F. Changs). Maybe it's because it isn't a chain restaurant. The wait staff is friendly...Noah offered to teach me how to cook the Kung Pao Shrimp in exchange for teaching him to read English :) I've yet to take him up on his offer, but it is tempting since my tongue has never been tantalized like it has been from eating that dish. This restaurant deserves 100 stars in my book.
Great services, and atmosphere.
They have excellent dishes such as Kung Pao shrimp if you're into seafood. General Tso's chicken, Guo bin beef, sesame chicken, are all very popular. Try it and you'll love it. They have great services, unlike some chinese restaurants that aren't really concerned with good service. Appetizers such as their crab meat rangoon and postickers are sold almost to every table. Make sure to bring lots of friends together so you guys can share the different dishes.
so/so food but excellent service..
Everytime I eat at Guo Bin I have to remember not to order anything fried. While I love sweet and sour chicken at most places Guo Bin's is a wierd dry concoction. However, they have delicious Lo Mein, Crab Rangoon and a killer sesame beef.
The dinning area is fun with ambiance and the wait staff is truely awesome. After our 3rd visit our waitress had remembered my husband and I and made us feel welcome. I often carry out because I live close and it's on the way but try dining in. They are really good people.
