We eat here regularly and have yet to be disappointed. Everything we have tried is quite good. The service can be slow, but it's mostly a one-woman show, and she does well. We are especially fond of the House Fried Rice and the Orange Beef. I married into a Chinese family and know my cuisine. This isn't just good "for... More

This is apparently the only Chinese restaurant in Estes Park and in reading the reviews it sounded like it would be good. Maybe it was the food choices I made but this was a huge fail for me. I ordered take out of "Paradise Fried Rice" with tofu. The dish was described as fried rice with eggs, cashews and pineapple.... More

We ordered at the restaurant and took it back to our hotel. The egg drop soup was good. The Thai curry could have used a bit more spice, but overall a good choice for dinner!

The food was terrific! It was kinda cold but they had and extra heater in the dining room to keep us warm. Very friendly! Good menu, lots of food per plate, ended up taking some home for later.

Their food is better than rated. The Shanghai Egg rolls and Drunken Noodles are outstanding, I asked them to add broccoli to my combination Drunken Noodles. We've enjoyed their specialty soup, too. We've eaten there 3 out of the four nights we have been in Estes Park! Thanksgiving Day, we were much too full!

I've read reviews previously about poor food and poor service, but I found my visit write the opposite. The food was authentic, fresh, and good value. The staff was personable and friendly. We had the vegetable lo mein and the happy family and both were excellent. The hot and sour soup was also great and the true mark of a... More

We were staying in a cabin on the creek and wanted to eat in one night so we got takeout from China Garden. It was really very good and we were glad we tried it. I had the Mango Tango which is chicken and shrimp in a slightly spicy sauce with mango. My husband had chicken in basil. While we... More

Wonderful food served quickly by the friendly staff. I had the Mu-shoo beef and it was lean and very good, the plum sauce was out of this world. My wife had sweet and sour and it was excellent as well. I highly recommend that you make this a stop while you are in Estes Park.

If you crave for some Chinese food & rice, Estes Park doesn't offer any authentic oriental offerings. So your options are quite limited. This restaurant sits on a plaza where the "Brown" free shuttle bus stops, so we decided to give it a try. There's one lady who does everything: being the hostess, the server, the buss-lady and everything in... More
