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

Take-out was large, hot, and tasted wonderful. There was no leakage as individual packages were wrapped well. Lots of sauces included, as well as fortune cookies. I ordered a variety of items, and each was wonderful. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

In my opinion this is the best Chinese restaurant in Sanford. The pork fried rice is awesome reheated and is not dry. We usually do just take out, but appears to be nice inside and the staff is very nice. Parking is excellent.

I have had lunch here three times, and dinner once with friends. I must say, I was never disappointed. The service was very good, and wait staff very friendly. I found the food very flavorful and hot. There are many Chinese restaurants in Southern York County. This one, in my opinion, is the best!

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
