Same Chinese Food menu as you would have seen in the 60's. Classics done just as you would expect. Perfectly cooked and presented every time. This is about as textbook a Chinese restaurant as you can get.

Average Food and Prices - a pretty typical place. Nothing especially notable either good or bad. Downtown location.

Staff very friendly and helpful, great food...at Gene's there is usually a 45 min to 1 hour wait to pickup your order, this tells you all the locals use this place to eat.

Good food, great flavour, and they will cook Vegan options. I have been going to this for many years and have never ever had a complaint. The owner and his wife are fantastic.

They have the best plum sauce, for their egg rolls. I have not found it in any other restaurant, to date. Menu selections are helpful, with meal packages available for different sizes. Makes for easy ordering.

We have taken out from Gene's twice and never again. Simply awful food prepared without passion or taste. Heavy on the veggies and sauce, an embarrassment for Stratford's downtown. C'mon people you can do better! Posting here instead of asking for a refund. Check out...More

Gene's had very good Chinese food (there were other things on the menu) that was not salty (just the way I like it). They do use MSG in some of the their dishes.
