You can't beat their seet n sour chicken. t's not the pre-fabe chicken ball in orange goo, but rather hand cut chicken in their own light batter and in a homemade sweet n sour sauce. Maybe not what other consider chinese but a treat nonetheless. Especially paired with their Soo Guy Almond in an 18 for one!
This is not chinese food. I have had real chinese food from Chinatown in downtown Toronto and great Canadian chinese food at chain restaurants around Cambridge and other cities. Georges Fine Chinese food came recommended from friend who has lived in Cambridge all her life. Portion sizes are incredibly tiny and barely fed my husband, myself and my four year daughter. There was chicken gravy on our chicken chow mein. The rice was not fried and the Cantonese chow mein generally contains curry...not at Georges, just more chicken gravy. Total waste of $47
Worst "chow mein" (if you'd call it that) ever. It was like a gelatin sauce with vegetables and bean sprouts, egg rolls were bland and greasy. Definitely will never order from Georges again.
Georges is very different Chinese/Canadian food. I always get steam fried rice/s&s chicken, almond soo-guy and an eggroll. Haven't really had much else they offer. The s&s chicken are not "balls" filled with mush. They are chicken fillets litely breaded and covered in what tastes like homemade sauce (not the starchy red one at the chains). Almond soo-guy and rice are pretty standard. It's what keeps us coming back about 4 times a year for a "special treat" (yes they are pricey). It is a unique Chinese taste, developed over the years.
This used to be the best chinese food in town but the last few visits have been very disappointing. The atmosphere and service has always been great but the food quality is no longer there. Only will go here if im craving eggrolls as they are still the tastiest ive ever had.
This is the worst Canadian/Chinese food Ive ever had. The rice and noodles are very sticky and taste like pure starch. I thought I would try it cause I was in the neighbourhood, but what a mistake. Do yourself a favour and find someplace else to eat. Also I almost fell over when my order came to $32 for just 2 items and 4 spring rolls.
Have not been back to George's in some years due to geographical location. Now that I live in Chatham, I will definately visit my 1950's childhood restaurant. it is worth the two hour drive. If you have never had the opportunity to savour this food, you are definately missing a golden treat.
Food was very bland and greasy. Not the worst chinese food ever but miles from what I would call adequate. Serving size was decent, but greasy spring rolls, bland rice and horrible bland Beef and Broccoli made it sad day. Rice: put it this way, when you order chinese and end up cooking your own its a bad sign. S&S Chicken, was actually pretty good... too bad the rest wasn't up to this level.
I move from Galt in 1967 and my parents frequently took me to George's (he always stood at the counter) during the mid 50's and the food was excellent. Now that I am once again within a stones throw of George's I will stop by for there sweet and sour chicken ( not balls) , cantoneese chow mein and won ton soup (probably this weekend). George's brings back so many childhood memorys and happy times. Thanks so much. Sam
and I have to admit that I hang my head in shame for ignoring this landmark spot, may it live on forever in Cambridge! I am not sure what spurred my memory but I found myself craving their eggrolls ( the sweetest in town) and the signature Almond Soo Guy. Along with the above I ordered the Sweet and Sour chicken and I was not disappointed , not a thing had changed , the sweet and sour is truly a mix of sweet and sour and not just sweet like most , the soo guy was still the same divine orange gravy and the chicken , praise be lacked one inch thick breading! I have recently added two converts to the George's love and will not stop there :)
