Nice Chinese Food

A friend recommended this restaurant as her go to restaurant for Chinese food in our area. My wife and I had to try it based on her advice. We were looking for a new Chinese restaurant given that we were newer to the area. Lavender did not disappoint. I ordered the Kung Pao chicken and she... read more

We usually get takeout, and it is always excellent. We really like the Eggplant in Garlic Sauce as a side veggie dish. Pad Thai is very good - ask them to make it spicy! Basil Rolls are excellent too.

We visit Lavender at least once a month and I must say.....They are ALWAYS great! Food, service, atmosphere, everything. There has never been a menu item we did not like. My go to item is the Panang Chicken Curry. It's like butter....just melts in your mouth! Love it. Everything is made to order. You can watch everything being made thru... More

This is a small American/Chinese restaurant in Snellville that fills the niche for a nice sit-down place to take our large extended family or to go for a quiet meal. I have never had any issues with the food except that they want the menu to be so mainstream that it never quite dips into the wonderful varied food items... More

You would think this would just be another strip mall joint. This place has class. The atmosphere is very modern. The service is awesome! Our server is hilarious and he's very knowledgeable! The value is the same as any other place around on 124. Definitely try at least once.

My wife & I heard that they have a vegan menu, so we went to find out. They did, and not only that, but they even went out of their way to make sure our food was gluten free. It was absolutely delicious! The manager waited on us & was super nice. Very clean restaurant with a modern & simple... More

I am a food connoisseur. Have traveled widely and am a cook.. We decided to try this place after reading multiple positive reviews. The owner James Wang is all smiles and happy to help with directions(we were lost due to Gwinnett Fair). Our waiter was very cheerful. Once seated quickly, he assisted with the menu. The place is casual but... More

The food is as good as a high end Chinese/Thai restaurant in a major city. The sauces are amazing. Lots of meat in the dishes. Took some vegan friends there and they served tofu/vegan dishes. Everything is fresh, tasty, and worth the money. Try the sticky rice for dessert!

I did not know what to expect when we had a friend ask to meet us here. My first thought was that we will be driving past several other Asian dining choices just to get to Lavender, but it turned out to be worth it. My wife got something served in what looked like a bird's nest made of dried... More
