Tried Lucky Garden for sushi and was not disappointed. Great service, clean restaurant, and great food. Would definitely return next time we are in the area.

We (two couples) sat down at the Lucky Garden and first ordered a series of appetizers. Spring Roll. Egg Rolls and Tuna Jalapeño Cakes. Then we continued with more Sushi, General Tso's and Moo Shu Shrimp. Each bite was better than the prior. I highly recommend going to Lucky Garden with others and splitting all the dishes amongst each other.... More

This place isn't that different from any typical Chinese food restaurant. The food is heavily breaded and greasy (not entirely untasty but I have had much, much better Chinese elsewhere). The prices are standard for Chinese. The inside is nicely decorated, so I suppose its a nice alternative to the standard Chinese food counter with pictures of the dishes on... More

Very nice cut and taste on the sashimi sampler and a basic avocado/eel roll. Hot and sour soup very good for me but might be a bit spicy for somw.

Lucky Garden has the best Chinese food we have found in the twin cities. The Szechuan items are particularly good. The "Dried Chili Chicken" is a favorite. They also have very respectable sushi and the Bento boxes include Japanese and Chinese items. The service is attentive. This is a good casual destination.

All rolls were excellent. Then we ordered White Tuna, Yellowtail, Crab stick, Shrimp and Salmon Roe Sushi. The Sushi was as fresh as possible for... More

Most probably the best Chinese Japanese restaurant in Bloomington Normal. Excellent selection, better than average prices, superb service. Atmosphere is comfortable, seemed recently remodeled. Definitely my new go to Japanese Chinese restaurant.

This is a very nice Chinese and Japanese restaurant. Food is very good and portions are large. I was pleasantly surprised and the "up market" nature of the food. Have eated in and taken out and never been disapointed. Staff are generally friendly and efficient. Probably the best chinese food in the area.

Lucky Garden has a good variety of Chinese cuisines solidly prepared. There are a number of Szechuan dishes one doesn't see elsewhere in the community. The dry chili chicken is a highlight. They also have very respectable sushi. Service is friendly and quick and it is a comfortable, clean, and reasonably priced restaurant.

My wife and I came here recently to have the spicy boiled fish and the dumplings. When we received our meal, we immediately noticed a loss in quality of the food. The dumplings had a thicker batter and not as tasty as before. The big disappointment was the spicy boiled fish. This used to be our favourite dish from Lucky... More
