Great, another foolishly named American eatery masquerading as an Asian restaurant, serving up utterly embarrassing, bastardized food that bears almost no resemblance to Asian/Chinese food. Self-respecting food lovers would do well to stay away from the tripe being peddled at Gung Ho.

Listen, we came during a super busy St. Patty's weekend in the thick of COVID-19 and had a great experience. The bar staff was super helpful and prompt even with a large group and the real superstar award goes to REGGIE who is legit sanitizing the bathrooms between people. Thank you for making us feel calm and comfortable in the storm. You earned a forever customer.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit! Parking was kinda difficult, but I found a free lot just around the corner on the residential side of the neighborhood. There seems to be 3 rooms in this place. When you first walk in, you're at the bar, to your right is a room in the front facing the window and the street and if you continue walking through the bar, past the restrooms, you'll find the back room. Ambiance: It's in a trendy and lively area of town, full of people, hustle and bustle. This place stayed packed the whole night. We were located in the back, in the private room, which we had to ourselves, though there were still other tables. Service: Our server was amazing! We were celebrating a birthday of a girl who just BEAT CANCER! When reserverations were made, I was informed that she told the staff that she wants a memorable night. The came to please because we were given a complimentary cup of birthday Rose from our server. What a nice touch! Food: Sooooo good! I ordered the Mongolian chicken and let's just say my food had such great flavor and it was nice and spicy. I wasn't expecting it to taste soo darn good. When i visit Dallas again, Gung Ho will be on the "to do" list.

Great atmosphere and great service. The food was so so. We ordered the poo poo platter and while the dumpling and the ribs were great everything else was mediocre at best.

came here yesterday for a quick drink and appetizer yesterday. it was a beautiful day in dallas and the patios was open so we chose outside seating. we each got a drink, I got a thai tea shot and my bf got an IPA. we opted for the calamari lettuce wraps which were so good! the calamari was seasoned so well and it was topped with ginger and cilantro. it came with a sauce which was a little spicy for my liking but in small quantities gave the wrap a great kick. overall pretty good service, we were seated quickly and our waitress was really nice. Will definitely come again for a heavier meal.

It is with no doubt once of my favorite places to get good Thai food and have a great conversation. Great place with a warm atmosphere. I loved the Old fashioned rum.

Cute place. Good drinks. Manager was really friendly and so was the bartender.Just had the drinks. We had dinner next door at their sister company HG. Will be back to try the food.

Awesome menu with great variety. Our waitress said to go family style which was a great way to try a few different things. Dan dan noodles - YES! One of my favorite things and I've been missing so that was a treat. Charshu pork was insane - flavorful plus squishy buns and yummy sauce. Broccolini was a perfect side. Craft cocktails were good too.

Holy cow you have to try the pork platter! LITERALLY the best thing I’ve ever tasted! Also, the bartender Jack Mercher was phenomenal. That young man deserves a 6 figure contract!

Came with a homie for out last dinner of 2019 and this place didn't disappoint. Very cute place with a decent selection of options. Loved our server too (sorry girl that I can't remember your name!) My friend and I shared the potstickers and they were good, definitely recommend! I was torn by what to order and our server suggested the crack chicken. I see why the dish got its name, it had so much flavor! Can't really imagine going back and ordering anything else. Planning to come back for brunch or happy hour and hopefully it'll be just as good.

Gung Ho was delicious!! My favorite dish was by far the orange chicken. I loved the flavor and how crispy the chicken was...sooo good!

Really cool place on Greenville! Would always walk by and never come in but the dishes are big portions, reasonably priced, and absolutely somewhere I would go on a date. Worth visiting!

One of the best chinese restaurants downtown. It'll hit the spot for sure. Total: 17.5/20 = 87.5% Flavor 4.5/5 The food is amazing! One of the few places that does staple chinese food quite well, with some American modern twists of course. The dandan noodles were very flavorful, and they didn't skimp on the pork. Noodles were also springy and delightfully chewy. The crack chicken was essentially chongqing chicken (Szechuan dish) but with larger pieces, and also crisp with the right amount of spice. Fries were a surprise, crispy, piping hot, and a great seasoning. All the dishes to my taste had a little too much salt but this is a pretty minor nitpick. The real hero though was the broccolini. If all vegetables tasted like that my girlfriend would never be on my case ever again. Atmosphere 4/5 Decor is an interesting mix of modern deep ellum with some chinese elements. Some of the tile on the floor is cracked and the benches at the booth we were at move easily, so that could use some improvement. Also the metal doors that are probably a remnant from the previous location are a little out of place. Value 4/5 Prices are expected for the area, you'll get more for cheaper if you make the trek to Plano, but definitely one of the highlights for this area. Service 5/5 Our waitress was amazing! Super nice, attentive. We had one small issue which the general manager came out and helped us deal with very easily and quickly.

Came here for the food... left here raving about the drinks! The food was great... Got the potstickers and made a chicken lo mein bowl. Would highly recommend. However - the drinks were super unique and flavorful and made us stay even longer than expected. Wish I could pop in here all the time!!

Visited Gung Ho on a Monday night and it was a great time! We ordered the curried mussels and marinated celtuce for our starters. I'm still not sure exactly what the celtuce was but I'd eat it again - very tasty! The mussels were okay, but the real star was the broth, which was so flavorful we asked for more bread to sop it up. For our entrees two people ordered the coconut shrimp and two ordered the char siu pork. The pork dish is a LOT of food and it would have fed all 4 of us. It was really yummy, the pork was tender and tasted great. The buns were nice and soft and the add-ons (sprouts, peanut sauce, etc) were perfect. I imagine shrimp was good as my dining companions cleared their bowls. Extra shout out to our server, Jaclyn, who was very attentive but never overbearing and answered all of our questions with a smile. Even though it got busier as our meal progressed she kept up with our party, and a manager also checked in on us to make sure all was well. Definitely will check this place out again to work through more of the menu, it was great!

So we had a group eservationnext door but wanted to have a drink together first. We chose Gungho since it was next door. So many positive things to say! Wait staff were all friendly. Bartender was a legit bartender, hand-shaking a variety of delicious and creative cocktails. We each had 2 in the 45 minutes we were there and they were delicious.the restaurant is clean, and all the food coming out from the kitchen smelled amazing. We can't wait to go back and try the place for dinner!!

Top notch ambient and great food! We had the crab Rangoon dip it was delicious. Eric is one amazing mngr he made sure we loved everything we got and explained to us the menu since it was our first time here. They have a delicious lavender lemonade that will leave your taste buds asking for more. We got great service and delicious food can't ask for more.

The food was awesome, the server was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the host staff were just as great! I left my phone behind and they had it waiting for me safely behind the desk.

Really enjoyed this place, as well as this area! Being from out of town I was looking for good Thai food where we could sit and have dinner and a drink on New Year's Eve. The last Thai place we tried I did not care for at all so I was excited to try this one, and I was not disappointed. The food was great and there were lots of options. I believe it's more of an Asian fusion place which I actually liked more since I could get fries with my curry, something that's not really heard of back home. The inside was beautiful, very nice place to have a date night. The music was good, the energy was good, and the bathrooms were spotless! Always a plus. It did take a while for our drinks and food to come out but being New Year's Eve and so busy, that was expected. Our server was very apologetic and communicative. Would love to come back here next time I'm in Dallas!

Really good food! The Lomein and the chicken was my Favorite! The cumin lamb was okay - I usually Love lamb dishes but the flavor wasn't amazing. The location is great and fun to walk around and the inside is trendy! Great spot and wouldn't definitely return!!

It was our first time here. We came across it while walking around the street as we wait for a table at Wabi House. Not disappointed at all! The guy in the front was able to sit us immediately and was very helpful with the menu. We ordered all his recommendations. We ordered Crab Rangoon dip and char siu pork. It was very filling! We even had left overs. The great thing is, we can ask for extra wantons and extra buns. The buns were so great! The pork were tender and flavorful. I will definitely be back! Can't wait stop by for happy hour!

First time here was a success. Atmosphere was nice and chill. The food was surprisingly delicious, I don't recommend the Dan Dan Noodles though. Other than that, their drinks are yummy and my fave dish was the Char Siu Pork! Would definitely come here again.

I've had the cracked chicken 5 times now and it's always fantastic. Small pieces of chicken with cilantro, red chilli peppers, onion, and rice. It's might be too salty for some, but it's really, really good. Only complaint is no lunch hours. Haven't tried anything else yet.

I need a second chance with this place. The potential is SO there. You just HAVE to order the right item. Trial & error you could say. I read the reviews, looked at pics, had convo about what to decide on at the table with my peers - my drink selection, Sake To Me, great choice. Closest thing to lychee sake that I could get. Sweet, refreshing and bright. Appetizer and entree? Both missing that some-thing! Started with the Smashed Cucumber. Right away, cilantro overload. The starter needed some acidity, some salt. Loved how fresh and crisp the cucumbers were, appreciated that. I ended up dousing the cucumbers with the sauce that came with the potstickers. Perfection. That fast. Killed them. Next time, I'll go with the potstickers. My entree - The Crack Chicken. I mean it has the word "crack" in it lol. It was either that or the Dan Dan Noodles. Which I will be getting next time. Honestly, the chicken just didn't do it for me. Subpar, tasted more like salt & pepper chicken. Nothing special. The fried rice that came with it was pretty good, but the dish honestly was average. The rave at the table was the noodles. Every person that got a noodle dish, they loved it and the Orange Chicken was a hit as well. So yeah, I'll be back, because I want to really like this place. A lot. I believe in second chances!

Overall: Char Siu Pork was amazing!!! Pork was tender, juicy, and had beautiful flavors. The Bao Buns were soft and were brought out in their container finishing up being steamed. This meal can feed two comfortably or possibly 3. Highly recommend the dish along with drinks.

We met up with friends here from the other side of town. It was mostly empty, but service was good, and the food was great. The potstickers and the crack chicken are especially tasty. Definitely worth a stop.

Had lunch, family style, at GungHo..the Crack Chicken is awesome (you need to like spicy) and the Char Stiu Pork with sticky buns is melt in your mouth delicious
