Came here as girlfriend wanted Chinese food during our visit. This place is a hole in the w4all, non-descript place located on Broadway in downtown Sonora. Place has been in business here since 1974. 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.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel front desk clerk. Although the service was prompt, our first clue that this place was bad, was the decor. Old stuffed moose and elk heads on the wall, branding irons along with chinese laterns, Christmas balls ornaments hanging from fish mouths.......it was obviously a western theme restaurant at one...

The food was great. The selection was great. The service was quick. I could not understand why they had floor fans out, but after sitting for awhile, I realized the A/C was not working. Outside of the the hot restaurant, the food is what mattered and I would come back again. The food was like I was eating in San... More

the food was soooo delicious. We should have got the small wonton soup for appetizer though because it was huge but soo good!! I love the jasmine tea and the special fried rice was lovely with our meal.

The Walnut Shrimp is out of this world! Their Hot & Sour Soup is also fantastic as a fixer-upper when you're under the weather. Great family atmosphere, convenient to theatre, hotels and event halls in Sonora. The Cantonese tradition is carried well here.

Nothing to write home about, but if you are staying downtown Sonora and want a local experience, give Hong Kong Garden a try. Mostly tasty, but aimed at the American stomach. Friendly staff and very reasonable prices.

I am usually too lazy to write anything. This time I feel obligated to tell the truth about the place. They charged me $38 plus tax for a dish that is not on menu. I was shocked for what I saw. I would give 0 star I I could. A very unhappy customer.
