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

The wife got a text message from the mother-in-law asking if we'd like to take them out to dinner because it was their anniversary. Sure why not. My treat of course. They picked this restaurant and that's how we ended up here on a saturday night. You know there are people who when having to pay for dinner will look... 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
