The owners have watched my kids grow up, know them by age and name. Not only is the food excellent, the atmosphere and... read more

We ordered take-out food and were happy that we chose the Green Tea Garden for a delicious Chinese food meal. The food was ready to go when I arrived and was still very hot when we got back to our room to eat it. The owner of the restaurant was very friendly. I enjoyed conversing with her. In spite of...

We have done carry out as well as dine in. Coming in, most of the time you can be ignored. They seem to always be busy! The atmosphere is nice and the food is excellent.

our party of six - five dishes were very good and ample but the egg fu young was the worst I have ever tasted so stick with the common dishes. I would ask the server what's popular because she was very helpful.

Food and service are good. We have known this family for many years and visit the restaurant often. Waitress Holly is outstanding. Very easy to find on the city's main drag.

Disrespectful and racist family owned establishment. The Restaurant side service and food was ok the one time i went but after the bar visit I wont be back nor would i recommend it. They charge LA club prices for their drinks because they are the only game in town, this town needs a bar with respectful staff and good atmosphere.
