The food was fine, service was fine, portions were large. I have lived here for 5 years and just visited for the first time. Probably will wait another 5 years to return unless I'm really craving chinese food and don't feel like driving all the way to Key West.

Young Waitress unfortunately did not understand our order, did not bring the items requested (soups and egg rolls as appetizers first) another perhaps a chef lady had to re-verify for the fourth time our order, simple task was very difficult for the waitress. Food arrived in large quantity - big portions. Fried rice had foul smell and moo goo gai... More

Ice tea not to my taste, but hot tea is very good. Large portions so we take home enough leftovers for another full meal.

We had egg rolls, and sweet and sour chicken. Both were good. I would return. The Hostess was chewing out her teenage daughter in the back, but this is normal. Nice and clean.

Have been to the China Garden several times. Food is consistent. Fast prep time. Egg rolls are good, but do have shrimp in them for people with seafood allergies. Favorite is the Beef and Pepper Steak. Also good General Tso's and Sweet and Sour Chicken. They do have an unusual gravy on some of their items. Have been there for... More

I asked if the egg roll had shell fish , like shrimp, etc.. in it and she kept telling me no just pork and she brought an egg roll to the table that had shrimp in it. She messed my order up... More

It's our local Chinese Restaurant that has good quality food in ample portions at a reasonable price. We eat there regularly. The next closest Chinese restaurant is about 30 miles away. Hay it's the Keys.

The food here is excellent, but the girl that answers the phone is rude, unprofessional and sounds like she is half asleep and completely inconvenienced by your phone call. Not to mention that she has messed up several orders since she constantly cuts you off and tries to rush you off the phone. Its a shame that a great restaurant... More
