Chinese family style meal

This place is wayyyy better than Garden Cafe. Food taste better and service is faster. It's big portion to share and lots of option to choose from. They close @ 1am so come here if you're hungry. I usually get the baked seafood w/ rice so good! Also walnut shrimp, chow fun and won ton egg noodle... read more

This hong kong café served the best HK milk tea unlike others where they put condensed milk (this is a no no). They also have really good baked pork chop over rice in tomato sauce. The meat is soft and chewy, good amount of tomato sauce and baked with melted cheese on top. Their vegetable plates are good as well.... More

We arrived in the L.A. area around 9:30pm on a Friday night. Decided to find a place for late night dinner. By the time we got to this place, it was about 11pm already. This place was about 40% full, but it was quite noisy because there 2 groups of young people having fun there. The service was good and... More

I visited ate one in Wesminister, 9433 Bolsa Ave. They opened a new one in Irvine, but it is more expensive. Food was very good and authentic. Price is reasonable. I love their lamb bowl $14. Their chow fun was only $7.99. They serve tea in a glass pot for about $9 a pot. If you come by yourself and... More

The place is all purple and has velvet chairs. Love it! The service is fast and the food is tasty! Portions are quite small compared to other Chinese restaurants. The service is better than your average expectation for local joints and very clean. This place gets packed around lunch time (12:30 pm) and dinner (7:00 pm).

Tasty Garden is located on Baldwin Avenue and has a giant parking lot which is shared with several other places including banks. It's a very busy restaurant and the feeling inside is very modern and colorful- lots of orange, brown, and some blues and greens. The place is divided into two sections. One section is an area for drinks as... More

It is located near a major indoor mall and many outstanding tourist attractions including the Santa Anita Racetrack. Going to Tasty Garden was a remarkably enjoyable experience. The food was delicious, well-served in a VERY timely manner (considering it was lunch time!) and reasonably priced. There were recognizable "American Style" menu items available, as well as very authentic Chinese food... More
