Always good chinese food. I stick with my standard of beef and broccoli and always ask the chef to make it spicy for me. They also have probably the best hot chinese mustard for the spring rolls I've ever tasted.

this was a pretty typical Chinese place. Food ok, all of the basic Chinese fare, but not worth going out of your way for. Convenience of the metro was the reason we went.

A local Chinese business owner recommended this place for the most authentic Chinese food in Chinatown, and they didn't disappoint! I'm not sure how Chinese their signature drink was (the Zombie), but it was plenty boozy! All the food after that was great!

Whatever issues others had, I can say I very much enjoyed my Noodle soup with Roast Duck. I even got this take out. The people were nice, gave me a bottle of water just while I was waiting, and the wait was not even that long. I would certainly go back

Friendly service and great food. Best Chinese food since San Francisco. We ordered the triple something with asparagus (chicken, beef, & shrimp) steamed rice and vegetable lo mien. We also ordered the steamed meatballs as an appetizer. If I was home I would have licked the plate. Doesn't look like much from the outside and we were actually looking for... More

After a long morning of walking and sightseeing we decided to try Chinatown Garden for lunch. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing and the service quick and responsive. From a food perspective it was good, not great, Chinese food. The Hot and Sour soup was very fresh. The entrees were fresh and tasty but nothing that made them standout from... More

We shared a sweet and sour chicken and rice. This was less than average. Very orange sauce, chicken pieces were massive and not so tender. Very disappointing. Service was slow. The builodng facade is very attractive and lures you in, but the food is less than impressive

After entering the restaurant we read the previous review about the 'extras' which were allegedly in the rice. We almost left, but decided to stick around as we were quite tired and hungry. For appetiser you can choose a single spring roll which was actually one of the better ones I've had. The main course of pork was less enjoyable,... More

I just had a business lunch today (10/9) at this restaurant and we found a stink bug in the fried rice. The server and manager tried to assure us that it was the husk of a chestnut...yeah right, we know exactly what it was. The bug was completely intact, legs and all. Even before the bug was discovered, neither of... More
