$8.50 plus tax for lunch buffet starting 11am. Really good value, drinks also reasonably priced. Beware the electronic "Open" sign either does not work or was not switched on.

Once we went to Lucky Garden we stopped looking for the best Chinese food in Augusta, Maine because we had found it. Very friendly people and I also recommend the Volcano Bowl (as long as you're not driving), so good!!

Highly recommend the vegetable fried rice and moo shoo; delicious! We usually get take out and it's always ready when promised. Staff is friendly. Fried dishes are not greasy.
