Great drinks and an awesome Happy Hour!

Awesome food and staff. Hannah and Lauren are amazing!

Probably one of the best/most fun restaurant atmosphere's in Dallas. The music is good, the restaurant looks great, and the staff are also casual and cool, but attentive and good at their jobs. The food is good. Potstickers are killer, the dumplings make a good showing, and the crack chicken is good enough (this dish could be better in my view). That said, this place is 5 star and worth the re-visit as well as trying other things on the menu.

Beautifully decorated restaurant, which includes a large bar, and also massive half circle booths!!! Really great ambience type place. The food is family style. We ordered the pop poo platter, and a side of bok choy vegetables and everything we tried was really well seasoned. Great sauces! Definitely going back and would recommend!!

This place is the most thoughtfully designed restaurant! From the bar scene to the three miss-matched bathrooms...it's all curated perfectly! They have a big place, and each place you sit is it's own experience. I love going late night and having the fermented cabbage and a drink at the bar. And I've had fun nights sitting in the main dining room! The first few times I went I ordered some wonky things...the bok choy dish was fine but awkward af to eat the huge leafy chunks with chop sticks. I ordered the bone marrow once, and it will only be once from there, the smell was the biggest then off imaginable. But once you finish, you get to chug a shot of whisky from the hollow bone!! And once I ordered the lamb, very good. I've tried a few cocktails and there's one that is like black licorice and, my fav, Too Wong Foo. It's a fruity/spicy, vodka drink, pineapple, passion fruit, and cinnamon vanilla.

I went to Gung Ho on a Wednesday night for happy hour with a friend. Due to us coming on a Wednesday night there was no issue with parking; however, if you decide to check this place out on the weekend keep in mind the parking is very limited in the lower Greenville area. Anyways, when my friend and I arrived at the restaurant, there was no wait so we were serviced immediately. The prices for happy hour are amazing. The happy hour food range from 3-8 dollars, and the drinks are 4-6 dollars. My friend got the cracking chicken and I got the crab dip. My friend enjoyed his dish; however, I cannot say the same. The wonton chips that came with the crab dip over powered the crab dip. I had to eat the crap dip by its self to experience the true taste of the crab dip. Even though I wasn't 100% satisfied with the crab dip, my over all experience was good. The bartender was attentive, the size and quality of food was worth the price. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend!

So so so good!! All y'all giving this place one star can go right on back to Panda Express where you belong. Gung ho is not your run of the mill, greasy, Americanized Chinese joint. You're not going to find general tsos on the menu here, we're talking real Szechuan flavor- the mouth-numbing, tongue-tingling real deal. I've been a couple times now, both for dine in and take out. For take out, I ordered via caviar - they have a shorter menu, but the food was ready extremely fast and I was impressed by how fresh and warm it was by the time I got it home. The crack chicken, Dan Dan noodles, and cumin lamb are all must haves. The eggplant is also really tasty, it's sweet and caramelized and provides a nice balance to some of the other, spicier dishes. The appetizer platter has a nice selection, although next time I will skip it and opt to double up on their egg roll. They have a unique take on the dish, as they are filled with vinegary, pickled veggies and swap your typical sweet and sour syrup for a delicious, tangy buttermilk herb sauce on the side. Gung-ho is a cant miss, and I can't wait to get back.

Great place to meet Friends for good food and drinks!

This restaurant was so fun and unique. We were headed out to brunch and where we wanted to go had a 45 minute ,so we chose this instead. What a great plan. The decor was cute and modern. All the chandeliers , I wanted to runaway with and install in my home. We had an awesome server who was so patient explaining how everything worked. He was a great guy with dreads and for the life of me, I can't remember his name. (Maybe all those mimosas?)We had a bunch of dishes that we all shared. The Steak and Eggs Fried Rice was the favorite of the group. Well that and the Breakfast Martini. My favorite was Lo Bak Go Tots. I am still sad that I didn't get to try the coconut cream egg rolls. Next time I am in Dallas , I will try this again!

I really enjoy the aesthetic of this restaurant - very “American in Saigon” kind of feel. The drinks are really delicious and I love the Dan Dan Noodles. Speed of service varies in the time of day, but overall this is a great place to visit.

Came to this place in the heart of greenville on a pretty slow Tuesday night. Its a nice setting and they play pretty good music. The staff was very nice and attentive and the food was delicious. We tried the orange chicken, lo mein, and the char siu pork (or as i like to call them: the really cute white fluffy tacos lol). It was good, however i must express the fact that this food doesnt really taste like the typical chinese food you have at buffets and other authentic chinese places im not sure if its supposed to be an american fusion place, but its nonetheless pretty good. Will definitely come back!

Liked the place.... has a great bar and food is quite decent . Worth a go and enjoy a nice Greenville evening folks !

Gung Ho continues to prove that Dallas is clueless about Chinese food. The orange chicken is the worst I've ever had. I've had better orange chicken from the frozen food section. It tastes like they seasoned it with cough medicine. How do you mess up fried rice? Just take some rice and fry it. $24 for a "king crab" coconut fried rice? There was like $5 worth of king crab on my plate. The worst part was the flavor. We were all trying to figure out what in God's earth they seasoned it with. Must've 2 gallons of coconut oil, coconut water, and more coconut. The crack chicken was good but I'm not coming back for that. I guess what upsets me most is that the chef's are trying too hard to Americanize Chinese food. Chinese food is amazing! Stop making my Dan Dan noodles taste like hamburger helper. Be bold. Make traditional Chinese food that tastes good because Dallas is lacking. Don't be another offensive Hot Joy that thankfully closed.

First time in tonight! We were celebrating a friend's birthday, and I'm so glad we chose this spot. Our server was Amber, and she was fabulous! Attentive to our needs, and knowledgeable about the menu. One of our dishes took some time to come out, she immediately recognized that and apologized, bringing us some shots (9 volts?) on the house. Super interesting drink! I think my tongue is still buzzing, haha. I asked the hostess if she could let Amber know it was our friend's birthday, expecting maybe a candle or something. Instead she brought out complimentary sparkling rosé! Huge unexpected surprise. Thank you, Amber!! We had the crab dip (love that chili jam), potstickers (yum!!!), Dan Dan noodles, cumin lamb, lo mein (nice kick!), and sweet and sour pork (love the cold pineapple with the hot crispy pork). Can't wait to come back and try more dishes. :)

Went for happy hour, and it was not bad! Good decor and very hip for a spact in Lower Greenville. Asian fusion. Overall the quality of the food is ok but it's good spot to share with drinks or before going out for the night. Would come back for happy hour as it was reasonably priced. Salt & Pepper Squid - wasn't as crispy as I would like but was good when made into a lettuce wrap with the included salsa naranja and pickled ginger. Refreshing/palate cleanser. Steamed Chicken Dumplings - neat and clean presentation wise, but average tasting. It was presented well, but there are better places to get flavorful dumplings. Crack Chicken - whatever spices they combined definitely turned it into crack. ADDICTING. Really enjoyed the sichuan spices and dried chilies as the heat was at an appropriate level. Would order again. Sauteed Baby Bok Choy - flavored really well with the black bean sauce. Love the char on the bok choy. I would order it again surprisingly. Chicken Fried Rice - turned out more salty than I would like, but the chicken is good. Lucky Cat - Aesthetically pleasing, but ok tasting. The star anise and ginger threw me off. Floral tasting

I ate here with a decent sized group (7, I think). This is a great restaurant to order and share small plates. We had made reservations after a promoter had come out to talk to us on the sidewalk earlier in the day. They remembered us when we came in, and the manager brought out some free appetizers to say thank you. The main dishes were delightful, were culturally varied, and offered many flavors. I looked at the drink menu, which was ambitious, but settled for a Tsing Tao beer. The interior of the restaurant is interesting and the booths are very comfortable and make for easy conversation among your party. This was one of my favorites in Lower Greenville.

Crab fried rice and crack chicken was delish!
October 2018 by Benjamin E.
Went back after a poor first visit. I will say the food is absolutely fantastic! There are still some kinks on the service side, the reservation system didn't work (just pull the trigger and get on OpenTable) and the timing of some things was a bit off. They did Comp our entree after it was noticeably late so they are in the right mindset just working through some things. Update: tried to order Favor and they don't do takeout! Updated: menu is much more limited, they got rid of their soups which were delicious!

Cocktails and dim sums !

Out of this world food, customer service, and ambiance. There can be a long wait, so I recommend making reservations or call ahead if possible. Order the cumin lamb, the potsickers, the cucumber salad and the fried eggplant (sounds weird, but it's amazing, and I don't even like eggplant. Thank me later). 4 stars rather than 5 because they do have some "misses" on their menu. The catfish hotpot, for instance, was mushy and bland, which is NOT representative of their menu overall.

I am impressed. First time attending this location And it was good. The drink bamboo and broadway drink. The pork fried rice is very crisp and good. Just an FYI, the low Meir is spicy but very good food here. We will return as we came during happy hour and it was reasonable.

Great food and drinks! This was my 2nd visit here (I forgot to review the 1st one, oops!) I had the veggie dumplings, which were super good! I love the cute basket that they are served in. I think there were 5 or 6 dumplings, which was plenty for me :) Hubs had the chicken lo mein and loved it! He was like "wow, this is even bette than the first time we came here" lol We each had a cocktail as well. I had the "Lucky Cat" which was actually served in a ceramic lucky cat! How cute!! The drink was very good, too. Hubs had the "Mr. Pink", which of course I had to sample ;). It was good as well; fruity and served with 2 little watermelon balls on top. Not to forget, the customer service was impeccable! We walked in about 30 minutes 'til closing and weren't treated like we needed to hurry up or anything. Everyone was very nice! We will certainly be back!

Lower Greenville establishments were lively with Sunday Funday revelers and Gung Ho was no exception. We were served deliciously potent cocktails by attentive bartenders and the food was FANTASTIC! I especially enjoyed the Dan Dan Noodles. After our meal, we headed over to the roof-top bar of its sister-resto, HG Supply. Both places are definitely on the list to bring any visiting friends and family.

The shrimp and crack chicken were my favorites and both gluten free! Everything we ordered was full of flavor - including the cocktails.

Shout out to all my P.F. Chang's lovers out there. Not gonna lie... at first glance, I thought this place would be a glorified version of that. Oh how we should never judge a book by its cover. Side note: I also loved the decor and ambiance... had the whole Crazy Rich Asians vibe to the place. Came in on a Tuesday night with some gal pals and snagging a table outside was easy peasy. We shared the steamed chicken dumplings, ginger salad with shrimp, crack chicken, and dan dan noodles. I also got the bamboo & broadway drink to sip sip on. Crack chicken: THIS IS WHAT I CAME HERE FOR. Beautifully fried chicken nuggets with the mala seasoning... The mala spice in this was not overpowering or numbing at all (probably subdued for the Western palate). 10/10 would order again. Dan dan noodles: Good meat sauce to noodle ratio. Unfortunately, we were stuffed by the time this dish came out and sadly could not finish it. Holla at my boy Ken Jeong from the movie... "Children are starving in America!" Oops, sorry to disappoint Papafina. Steamed chicken dumplings: This was my least favorite thing we ordered. Def had better dumplings and the dumpling skin was too thick imo. The sauce didn't really complement the dumplings well either. Bamboo & broadway: Great gin cocktail - I couldn't really taste any spice from the Thai chili. Would order again. Ginger salad with shrimp: I loved this salad and the combination of textures/flavors. The crunchy lo mein was a great addition to the citrus, pickled ginger and crunchy fresh greens. Would order again. This place got all the feels like a Drake song with them eggrolls and dumplings, know what I'm sayin?! Sit outside if you're feeling extra romantical. Peace, love, and fried rice.

Went here with some girlfriends for a ladies night out! It took a bit for our server to come greet us, but it was busy - no worries! I ordered the Lucky Cat to sip on as we continue to catch up and look over the menu. -Lucky Cat: Star Anise Infused Mt. Gay Black Barrel, Ginger, Lime Leaf Chile Syrup, Lemon & Lime - like an Asian inspired Moscow Mule - went down fast and easy (not spicy). Plus it was served in an adorable cat cup - winning all around. (4 out of 5) We found out it was family style so we tried the options below: -Steamed Chicken Dumplings: Average dumplings, tastey but nothing special. *TIP - Use the delicious chili sauce on the side - that is where all the flavor is! (w/out sauce 3 out of 5, w/ sauce 4 out of 5) -Chilled Peanut Noodles w/ Chicken: This was my personal favorite. It was light, flavorful and fresh. I think I would order this for a solo entree next time. (5 out of 5) -Crack Chicken: Breaded & fried nuggets, in a mala seasoning, dried chilies & herbs. These are from heaven and a total crowd pleaser. (5 out of 5) -Roasted mushrooms:Black garlic vin, garlic chives & bonito flakes - I personally liked these but the "dancing bonito flakes" turned the rest of the ladies off. *Tip - the fish flakes are only "dancing" because of the heat and are no way alive. Don't be afraid to try it. -Dan Dan Noodles: Spicy Pork & black bean ragu, scallion & crispy garlic... the favorite of most of the other ladies. Lacked flavor in my opinion. (3 out of 5) Disclosure - we did not order this dish, they brought it to us by accident. When we let them know they said for us to just enjoy. A solid 4 out of 5 experience. Things that would make it a 5 are more attentive service, proper meals being brought out. Will I return? Absolutely!

Great to order and share. Ordered:Shrimp and Braised bacon dumplings Pork and Peanut Pot Stickers, you would think that it would be easy to tell them apart and that they would look and taste different....well that wasn’t the case. They were very hard to distinguish one from the other, although they were very fresh and both were tasty, you could not tell that they were different AT ALL. Then we tried the Dan Dan noodles and the Crack Chicken. The noodles were very good, with just the right amount of spicy ness to it and very fresh. The chicken should have been called Fermented Chilis and herbs with some chicken, it was good but most of the bowl was the chili’s and who can eat a whole bowl of them. The restaurant can be loud and we were seated in the bar area but our waitress was excellent and that helped. Only downside of the night was we left a pair of RX sunglasses there and when we called to ask if they had been turned, they really didn’t seem to feel that they needed to even look for them and that it was our responsibility to return to look for them.
