I say "Benefit of the Doubt" because I want to filter my review due to it being Christmas Day. With so few choices and Chinese food such a tradition with so many, you can imagine the onslaught. That said the food at Formosa Garden was poor. The Sesame Chicken was all dark meat and fatty. The sauce was ok but... More

When I was working nearby I used to frequent Formosa Garden for lunch on a regular basis. It was always packed and you had to wait to be seated. The food was pretty good back then. I hadn't been there in a long while but was in the area and stopped for lunch. Well, it was busy but not like... More

My husband & I were in the mood for Chinese food. Formosa Garden was perfect for the price & convenient . We sat at the bar & were promptly greeted. We both were served a complimentary house salad & delicious egg drop 🍜 We really enjoyed their sesame seed chicken. If you don't mind spicy, you will enjoy as well!

Consistently great food - sushi is wonderful. Very popular for lunch - specials include iced tea. Soups are a great add on to any meal.

Second dinner at the hibachi , didn't disappoint, Ben is hilarious, food is always great , but the show is worth it. The hibachi area is separate from the main dining area which makes it nice. Can't wait till next time.

Although it was in the middle of regular busy lunch time, we were seated immediately and received our food within, I'd say, 10 minutes after ordering. The decor is pleasant, so was the wait staff. Our dishes were well prepared. I like the fact that you can order certain items on the menu without salt.

I had business visitors from China in town, and they loved ths place. They could speak Chinese to some of the wait staff, and were able to get dishes made like they are made in China, very different than Western Chinese food.

This place has never failed to offer the best service and best food every visit and last night was, I estimate, our 8th or 9th so far. Between my husband and myself, we've tried many chicken, beef and shrimp dishes and ALL were delicious! The early bird menu is offered 7 days a week! And it is plenty of food!

Hubby and I went for dinner. He had the sesame chicken; generous portion and good flavor. I had the pad thai which came with shrimp, chicken, and tofu; absolutely loved it! I think it is better than my local thai restaurant version! Service was good, waitress was a little cut and dry but did a good job.

Thank Noemi B
