Best Asian Food in Town

Of all the Asian restaurants in the area, Green Tea has risen to the top fast. Good food, good service, and good pricing has helped them achieve this. A lot of people do take out, but the restauarant itself does a pretty good business. Dining area and atmosphere is nothing special, but it serves... read more

Love this Chinese restaurant. It is by far the best Chinese around, no doubt about it. You won't be dissapointed. And if you want the best Mai Tai, ask for a Tina's Mai Tai.

Went for dinner tonight, party of two. Had to wait maybe 10 minutes for a table, which was fine. The wait staff did a great job, we were served drinks quickly and our dinner order was taken right away. Then the real wait started. Over 50 minutes. It just takes all the fun out of the evening, to just wait... More

My wife and I were excited to try this place as we had heard good reviews. Those reviews were wrong. The service was so incredibly slow and disorganized i thought we were on a hidden camera show. Arrived to a small crowd in the waiting area, was told a 10 min wait. After 15 min the hostess said they were... More

We had not been to the Green Tea restaurant since they opened so we thought we would try them again to see if they had improved. We picked up our order 2 minutes after the ready time they gave us. Short drive home, only to find everything was either over cooked or over battered & even worse it cold. Later... More

I'm sorry to say this, but the food at green tea is hit or miss...mostly miss! When they first opened, I really appreciated the freshness and flavor combos. Fast forward a year or two. I tried them again. Terrible! I even gave them 2 more tries realizing nobody can be perfect all of the time..(.I can't even classify them as... More

This used to be my go to for chinese food until recently. Last time I went for a sit down dinner, the house fried rice was so greasy, all you could taste was oil. I ordered take out last night chicken fingers and was so disappointed. The chicken fingers tasted like they were made the day before then re fried,... More

I went to this restaurant last weekend to celebrate my birthday with my fiancee. I have never sat in the restaurant section before, but I have been to the bar which has always been pleasant. This last trip we had a nice sit down dinner, and a couple drinks in the dining room. It was very good service. Everything came... More
