Beware of specials

Had dinner there last night. Some of the best Chinese food I have ever had. But, beware. Do not order anything from the specials board without asking the price. We ordered a whole sweet and sour fish. When the bill came the fish alone was $50. About choked! $50 for one plate in a Chinese... read more

We had dinner with our kids, grandchildren and the other grandma, two times while in Sonora. They have excellent food and the staff are the owners and they are so friendly! Once it was one of my granddaughters birthdays and that's where she picked to eat and her dad and mom ordered some extras for her as it was her... More

We arrived in a very wet Sonora & booked into the California Inns hotel. Due to the weather we decided to try the first Chinese restaurant we came to & the Hong Kong Garden looked inviting. However, the service wasn't great - the waitress forgot the iced water we asked for & she obviously didn't know the difference between white... More

The food was great! We had classic dishes like fried rice and noodles, as well as delicious dim sum.

Always friendly, quick, service and fun abiance, especially if you're a local. The walls are imprinted with the brands used by the historical families of the area as this used to be a more western flavored establishment, some time back. Rarely crowded, usually quiet and the waiters keep a close eye on you and are quick to be there if... More

Absolutely Fresh vegetables. A very warm welcome at a family-owned restaurant. We chose the most authentic items we could. They do serve some 'Americanized' Chinese dishes. They even offer Sushi, a pleasant surprised.

Not sure what the decor theme was inside, an old time coal lantern hanging with new, large Christmas bulb, or several stuffed animal heads..anyway, we were... More

Ordered take out... Large portions of poor food. General chicken was comparable to orange chicken at a mall food square. No flavor.

We came here on the recommendation of the front desk at the hotel. The staff was very friendly but the food surely did not meet my expectations of god Chinese food. The sauces were very bland and I thought was very expensive for the quality.
