Best Noodle Bowl in town!

When we are craving noodle bowls, Oriental Garden is our first choice! Their other options are also excellent, but this is one of our go-to meals. Make sure you order before 6 pm, they often sell out of their Noodle Bowl!

Felt like changing things up a bit this time and tried Oriental Gardens as opposed to the usual place we go to. One word - AMAZING! The spicy dish that was brought out as we walked in tickled the olfactory senses and enticed us to try it and we were not disappointed. Turns out that it is likely one of... More

Awesome place for Vietnamese/Chinese food. My go to place. I usually get the viet noodle bowl #94. The specials are always good too, cheap and lots of food. Always leftovers.

This is a very popular eat in and take out restaurant. The seating however is very tight so it is not a good place to come for a quiet, private conversation over dinner. The food is good, the variety is excellent with both Chinese and Vietnamese dishes. We ordered the Dai Jug Woey for two and requested it to be... More

The best Vietnamese food in Canada. The pho and noodle bowl are their best dishes. You should eat here, trust me. The delivery drivers are very good looking as well.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch today. The place is small, but clean and inviting. Our waitress was friendly. We ordered the wonton soup and combo plates. The portions were quite large and we ended up taking some of it home. The food was fresh and tasty, but could have used a bit more spicing. With tip, the... More

On the advice of a friend, we visited this restaurant for lunch. As we went at about 2:00 pm, it was not overly busy. Our orders came to the table in a very timely fashion. The food was delicious - definitely some of the best Chinese food I've ever eaten. The servings were generous in size, and when we asked... More

We ordered take out from Oriental Gardens on a Saturday night and were told that it would take 20-25mins for our order to be ready. I arrived 30mins later and was told that it wasn't quite ready but I could pay for it. I waited another 15minutes for our order to come out, on the positive side the overall cost... More

Although Chinese can seem more of a treat because it is so expensive. They have a very well priced lunch menu and the noodle bowl is unreal!!! Also not only the cheapest in town, the best with portion and taste! We only order from here for Chinese and we are always happy. Even when picked up or delivered it is... More
