Staying in Waterloo overnight and did a search and found Honey Garden on tripadvisor. Now, if you want fancy, this ain't the place. But if you want incredible food, then make this a stop. Only myself and a couple were in the restaurant and I got nervous, but the place is clean and the waiter was extremely courteous and helpful.... More

There are signs all over the restaurant, stating that they're open 7 days a week, from 5am until late at night. We arrived, after driving over an hour, at 3:10pm. No cars, no lights, and the doors were locked. There was no note of explanation, telling us when we could perhaps return. We will not be back, and I'm seeking... More

After reading the reviews I couldn't resist the temptation to try this restaurant when in the area... I was pleasantly surprised by the promptness of seating and the engaging smile of our knowledgeable waitress. When I inquired about a dish I had never eaten (sampler plate appetizer wrapped in grape leaves) and the lamb Gyro w/rice, she elaborated on their... More

If you like eating your vegetables from a can or a gyro from a package, then this is the place for you! I ordered a gyro and my friend had the spinach pie with seasonal vegetables. While she had been craving the pie and I, the gyro, we would have been better off going to Hy-Vee for the ingredients and... More

If you are on the road, and want something different, swing off the interstate and into the parking lot of this American/Greek/Middle Eastern restaurant. The menu is varied, the service usually good, and the food is served with a smile. The menu has some surprises, and you'll enjoy your fresh -cooked food.

The name "Honey Garden" conjures up thoughts of Chinese food. Not the case for this restaurant. This nice, quaint restaurant is owned by a Nepalese family and serves Greek and American food, among other types of ethnic. I tried today's special: the Gyro Plate. It was delicious. The hostess/server was polite and prompt. I was very impressed and will make... More

I absolutely love the Indian food choices here. The Chicken Tikka Masala and the Chicken Biryani are excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast is served all day everyday and you definitely get your money's worth. The owners/waitresses/chefs are all very friendly and willing to accomodate you.

They serve Greek food. They serve Indian food. Both are excellent and with awesome prices to match. Great service too. This place is a real find. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for something different that isn't a chain restaurant. As a side bonus, El Chapala is a few steps away and they have excellent Mexican food.
