We ordered a soup and two dishes. The soup was minced beef with egg white broth (west lake beef soup), a pretty standard Cantonese soup dish. It has minced beef, cilantro, and a thick broth with egg whites. The soup was pretty good, a bit on the salty side though.

I proceeded to order a dish called 'sizzling triple delight' priced at $13. It was basically just chicken, beef, and shrimp stir fried and poured over a sizzling fajita plate. I was not very happy with this dish because they used all canned vegetables and the sauce was way too salty. For its price, you would think they need to put some fresh vegetables in there! Well, they did put a few fresh broccoli in there since they probably couldn't find any canned broccoli....

He ordered a ham and bean noodle stew. It was average or maybe a little below average. The dish had a lot of bean noodles but not much of anything else, only bits of ham and bits of vegetables in it. Overall, it was too salty as well.
We probably won't frequent this restaurant too much since we have other Cantonese restaurant choices in the area such as XO taste and East Pearl. Both of them are much better restaurants and the decor at both places are much better than Gui Lin as well!
