We had a wonderful lunch at China Garden. My husband ordered Emporors Chicken Combination, and I had Moo Goo Gai Pan Combination. It was felicious. The egg roll was crispy and the inside was fresh. The egg drop soup had a wonderful flavor and the entrees were cooked perfectly. We were served enough that we both took some home. Thumbs... More

Best egg rolls in the area. The Beef w/ Broccoli is excellent. They also have the best fried rice in the area. Yang Chow rice has shrimp, ham, chicken is most excellent. Egg drop soup is superb. They have been voted readers choice through the local newspaper for several years running and one taste of the food states why. They... More

Everything we had was cooked to perfection, hot and delicious. Rice was fresh and tender. The staff graciously accommodated my allergies and food sensitivities. This is WAY BETTER than the Chinese buffet in town. Don't waste your time there. My husband's rice was a garish neon yellow. Our chicken was overcooked. Sigh.

I have consistently received good service and delicious food when i have ordered take-out. It is especially nice that you can complete your order online and then pick up at a drive through window at the restaurant. It would be great if they had delivery. Dine in Service was also very good. Attentive wait staff and quick service. The Almond... More

Having tried this place twice within a year apart, I find the food to be consistently poor and question the validity of the earlier reviews. After moving here from a big city with much better food and options, I have learned the locals around here have a much lower expectation of what good food is, but anyone visiting and leaving...
