5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014 NEW

This restaurant closed in mid-August because the owner sold it and retired. Waitress indicated that the new owner plans to reopen with a new Chinese menu in a couple of months. Not sure if it will have a new name.

Without question, this is the best Chinese restaurant around. Joe Chan, with his wife and family, have provided outstanding meals for over 35 years in the Scotia area. They offer a very good lunch and evening buffet, as well as "from the menu" selections, with take out available. Combine this with a movie across Mohawk Ave at the Scotia Cinema... More

Order off the menu, it's not the same food on the buffet. The menu food is the best Chinese food in the area. The wonton soup is the best I have ever had.

Dragon Gardens is one of the few Chinese restaurants around that is still a real restaurant. They do have a buffet but you can also order off their extensive menu. Takeout is also available. The best quality Chinese food in our area by far.

There are several buffets in this area and the food is generally good but some are so large it often feels as if you're eating in a warehouse. Dragon Gardens is a cozy restaurant offering a full menu as well as a nice buffet with just the right choices so as to not feel so overwhelmed as in some places.... More

We like to go for the lunch buffet because you can get out of there for less than $20 for tow people and be VERY full of great food!

Great buffet, even better menu items. It's too bad more people don't take advantage of their menu because it's really much better than the buffet.

My family and I have been eating here for years. I always get the same seafood meal. I ordered the same meal as a take-out, and when I got home, he had provided me with a container of soup. I called to request a refund, and he insisted that was the seafood dinner I have been ordering for years. HUH!!??!!... More
