Delicious Chinese Food

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... read 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

Good noodle soups and bon bons! Not exactly a lot of Chinese food options and even less Vietnamese options in thunder bay! Had a great fresh hot meal here with family.

Meals are made with fresh ingredients, served in a timely fashion, hot and with a smile. Servings are generous and prices are fair. I highly recommend trying this, one visit and you will be hooked like me. Going... More

It's unfortunate that the service at Oriental Garden is so poor. I would like to describe my most recent experience. Tonight (Monday night), I went with my girlfriend for a nice dinner. It was pretty quiet. After we placed our order, we were the only customers in the restaurant. We were trying to have a quiet dinner but the staff... More

Great food at a fair price. I don't think you will ever be disappointed by the food. Any of the soups are fantastic, egg foo young was done perfect. HOWEVER ; the place is filthy, you wont need a menu , just look at the carpet. I do not understand!!! the place is small, a new carpet could be replaced... More
