Consistency is every thing and this restaurant is consistently good! Sign up on line and get coupons( take out only, cash orders) We also go to their lunch buffets which are a good deal. Mostly we order take out- about once a week .( order on line- it's quick and easy!) They have the best vegetable rice noodles ( vegetable... More

I was impressed by the food. They even had my favorite scallion pancake which not every place has...the menu goes on and on. You can order online or dine in! The service was great and the food was fresh.

Have been going here for years. Always great service and food. The buffet is great for the money and we always get the sushi. You will always see someone you know there and grabbing a Mai tai while u wait for your takeout is the way to go!

Being highly allergic to MSG, even the thought of Chinese food makes me cringe. SO GRATEFUL for Gourmet Garden! No MSG. No trans fat. No headaches or stomach pains! I can eat anything on their menu. They are super accommodating to allergies and have very healthy choices. Love their sushi too!!!!

If you're judging this place against the best Asian food in your area, it could be a step down, but as you know, there are a ton of bad Asian restaurants in the suburbs. This is one of the better ones in my area. Agree with other reviewers about the sushi - really good, but not cheap. The Chinese food... More
