Saw the good reviews on TA and stopped in to check it out. TA is rarely wrong, lol. This place has been around for many years, and it's probably because they serve very good food, their portion sizes are large, and their staff genuinely care about their customers. The hot and sour soup was excellent, chock full of tasty morsels,... More

Well, in fact for more than 16 years we go to this place, 5 to 20 times every year. For special occasions or just lunch is a great choice. As about menu: just close your eyes and point randomly, if you have no diet or allergies. The Portuguese influence on top of Chinese techniques and ingredients makes an excellent combination....

We have eaten here numerous times and always had good service and good food! The decor is a tad dated but the food is so good that you forget about it. The food came in a very reasonable time. Food was hot and fresh. My son is always skeptical of ordering squid dishes because he says they are always over... More

I had forgotten about the Emerald Garden until I happened to be in the neighborhood and stopped for lunch. I was very impressed with the food! it was freshly prepared the way it used to be before mass production has ruined Chinese food in most places. I had their lunch special with chicken cashew and ginger beef. The chicken was... More

We came here based upon other tripadvisor reviews. There were five of us (3 adults and 2 youth) and we ordered the dinner for four with an extra order of spring rolls. The food came out quickly and was hot and perfectly cooked. Not greasy spoon at all. The service was also impeccable. Very friendly and attentive.

I love eating here. It is close to work so I tend to go during lunch hour. Cheap menu, and the ginger beef is amazing. The staff is very friendly.
