Chinese take out is always and iffy proposition - many time things that seem OK in the restaurant turn out to be gloppy tasteless messes when you bring them home. This was a bit better, although still suffering from a case of blandness. the General Tso's chicken was the only iffy dish, all of the others were pretty good. Portions... More

The decor is typical dated americhinese. A rectangle room we it no booths. Hot and sour soup was better than average. Egg rolls were very big send seemed to be very fresh in house made. I had the chicken chow mein. It was hot and had good flavor. The price was excellent for the amount of food I got.

We've been searching for a decent Chinese place closer than Bedford, and, alas, we've ruled out another one. I was excited when we were provided with an entire pot of tea, and then disappointed that it tasted like hot, colored water. It was brown, but no scent or flavor, let alone the delicious jasmine scent/flavor that I was hoping for.... More

I admit. I am a Thai food snob. The only other Thai restaurant that wasn't Americanized Thai was closed, so reluctantly I came here. Let me be clear - I don't particularly like Chinese food. But I very much like Thai. So if you like Chinese, by all means come and eat here. The service is quick, polite, and as... More

While not as over the top as some Chinese places, it is a nice place to dine. The lunchtime offerings were generous, filling and very tasty at an excellent price.

Our local Chinese restaurant was always outstanding (and 1 mile away). Tonight was our first night in the new house - decided to try Pine Garden as we're now equidistant to our old favorite and PG. In a nutshell - the quality and taste is outstanding! We had takeout tonight: Crab Rangoon, House Fried Rice, Egg Rolls, General Gau's Chicken,... More

I moved to this area a little over a year ago, at first Pine Garden was the best delicious food, generous portions and friendly service. I am not sure what happened but the quality has been sacrificed greatly, the portion size was almost cut in half and they have raised the price of my favorite meal (pupu platter for one)... More

stopped in today (11/10/13) for lunch with my Daughter and Grandson. We were the fist ones in at 12:00, and the first to get served. The young waitress brought us tea, which was barley luke warm. We ordered the crab rangoons for an appetizer, which were OK, and chicken fried rice, and shrimp w/cashews. The rice was good, but the... More
