About Gan Shan West

Gan Shan West is featured on our list of Best Restaurants for Takeout in Asheville!

Gan Shan West is one of our absolute favorite restaurants in Asheville. It’s always so fresh and is amazingly fast when you are in a pinch! Gan Shan West is at the top of our best takeout restaurants in Asheville list and our #1 go-to in most cases. 

My recommendation for dining at Gan Shan West is to plan to eat family-style. Order a few different appetizers and entrees and split them with a group. We love their pork & chive dumplings, wings, gai lon, General Tso’s Chicken and Japanese fries.

If you can only order one thing, though, definitely get the GSW Rice Bowl. It comes with sweet soy, mayo, chili oil, peanut, roasted eggplant (so good!!!), house pickles and kimchi, and then you can add a protein and additional toppings if desired. We always all Korean pulled pork to our rice bowl.
