My mother and I discovered Lucky Garden one day when we were visiting Hallowell. Neither of us had heard of it, so being adventurous, we parked and decided to check it out. That was in 1999, and we continued to patronize this excellent restaurant for the next 14 years. My mother, who's since passed away, absolutely loved the place...and it's... More

Very fresh and very tasty....I won't eat anywhere else. It's the kind of Chinese food that you can eat, and not feel like you need to sleep for three days afterwards. Staff is also very friendly which is a plus!

Was out and about with a friend last Saturday and she suggested that we eat @ Lucky Garden in Hallowell. It was out of the way, and I wasn't feeling well, but oh my!

I walked in last night for a take out menu and the mouth watering aroma of yummy food had me out the door with take-out and a menu for later. What a lovely Chinese restaurant with a view. Friendly staff and busy with guests enjoying the buffet and fast service. Hands down, the best Hot and Sour Soup I've ever... More

Lucky Garden - Excellent Chinese Food and amazingly large portion sizes. Great value - and the food is cooked fresh and hot. I have dined here twice while on business - and it is the best in the area. Take out is fantastic too!

I go to Lucky Garden about once a week. Here you will find a friendly, accommodating staff, well-prepared food, and excellent drinks. The prices are more than reasonable. The dining room overlooks the Kennebec River. I highly recommend the Suffering B*****d, a potent and tasty drink. Order anything from the menu, and you will be pleased with your dining experience.

It's not the largest, but it's certainly beats all others for freshness and taste. The dining room has great views of the river and the owners and staff people are very friendly. This is always my 1st choice for lunch in Hallowell.
