Spending time with family and friends at a great place is the best way to enjoy an evening out. The food is wonderful and when the DJ plays music so is the dancing. They have several pool tables too.

I have had good food and not so good food here. I think it all just depends on the day. Never have eaten in, always have gotten to go. The lady that takes our order is always friendly and makes sure your order is correct before you go.

We live over an hour away from California City yet don't hesitate the drive specifically to eat here. I had family that lived in Cal City and even after they moved we return.

These owners love their business and their food. Everything was fresh and delicious, and you have GOT to see the cuttings / art on the walls!

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...
