My family and I have enjoyed sailing boat from it's advent! There is not anything George, his wife, family, and employees wouldn't do for their customer. Weather its your first visit or your 100th they are there to create Chinese cuisine to saciate every pallet and if there is any flavor one might not appreciate (such as, fish and chips.... And really who orders fish and chips at a CHINESE restaurant?). They would have happily made something else or, perhaps given u your money back and suggested Buzz's FISH AND CHIPS! All negativity aside we appreciate George an his establishment for their excellent service, atmosphere, and food!
Thank you!

I ordered fish and chips one day and the fries were really hard plus the fish was disgusting! I would never recommend this restaurant to a friend. Never will I ever go here again. I'v learnt my lesson.

overnite stay in redding en route north to Washington and we decided to trust other reviews and had dinner here. Absolutely the best, freshest fried calamari I've ever had. Before that, it was fried calamari at the Blackfish Cafe in Lincoln City which was great. This calamari was huge and tender and served almost immediately. husband loved it, too.\n\nThe asparagus beef in black bean sauce was okay. The beef was tough (nice to know they don't treat the beef artificially to have it melt in your mouth) and the bean sauce was mild. Husband liked the dish.\n\nVegetable chow mein was okay. Husband loved the chow mein.

This is my mother's favorite Chinese restaurant in Redding. There are one or two places I like better, but the food here is always good, prices are decent, and the pupu platter is still the best appetizer around.

I've eaten at Sailing Boat many times and I know the owner, George. He's super-friendly and seems to take great pride in his restaurant. It shows in the quality of the food. When I say it's excellent for a smaller town, I mean just that. I've lived in NYC, The SF Bay Area, and Portland, Or. and I've eaten in some really great Chinese restaurants. It's not that the food at Sailing boat is of lessor quality or that they don't know how to cook as well. It's just that it's not quite as hard-core as I prefer it to be. I've never been to China or Hong Kong so it's possible that I have some misconceptions about what real Chinese food is supposed to be like. But I would prefer to see some more exotic dishes on the menu or more exotic ingredients. But this doesn't change the fact that the dishes on the menu there that I've eaten taste fantastic. I'd just like to see more and more different. I'd guess that the reason the menu is more main stream is because in a smaller town there are going to be fewer adventurous eaters to order the more exotic dishes. There's not much to be done about the size of the town. You're also not too likely to find a Mexican restaurant in Redding serving tongue tacos or goat burritos but you would in a larger town. ;~}

As I said, I have gotten to know the owner, George and he knows my name whether I see him in the restaurant or at the grocery store, even when I haven't seen him in months. When he is there I always get excellent service and I rarely am allowed to leave without George giving me a small gift of almond cookies, a jar or chile/garlic sauce, or a box to tea. However, I have noticed that if he isn't there the service sometimes seems to be less consistent. Never bad but sometimes slower or the waiter will be more likely to forget something. The food quality is nearly always the same.

In answer to the, "Con" posted by the previous reviewer...The reason they don't serve sushi is the same reason they don't serve pizza or BBQ ribs, it's a CHINESE restaurant. Sushi is Japanese and that's a different kind of food.

The Sailing Boat combines great food and great service with affordable prices. I have tried many of their dishes and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and served in a timely manner. They offer good specials every day. I've taken friends and family here, and even had them cater an event. Outstanding.

PROS: Good food, good service, good prices
CONS:
