Best Chinese in Knoxville

If you are craving Chinese this is the place for you. It is absolutely amazing, I recommend the palace shrimp. Only Chinese restaurant in Knoxville that has it. The egg rolls are beyond good.

Tiny hole in the wall with great food and great service! Ms. Rebecca is the only server but she is very efficient! Try the crab rangoons and the orange peel chicken with hot and sour soup! Yum!

This restaurant is in a strip mall. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is great! It's a family run restaurant with good, fresh food at reasonable prices. Best Chinese in Knoxville!

This place is great! It is run by a married couple and they treat you like family. Possibly the best Hot & Sour soup I have ever had. Have had the General Tso's, Moo Shu pork, Sweet and Sour chicken. All yummy! You can eat lunch there for less than $7.00 (including a soft drink) and be stuffed.

My favorite Chinese in Knoxville and all of the dishes I have tried have been great. Amazing lunch prices and very friendly service. I highly recommend it.

My entire family loves Golden Garden! They have the best sweet and sour chicken, and it even comes with fresh pineapple and bell pepper chunks. Their prices are excellent and include delicious extras like soup or an egg roll. The service is fabulous and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Do not judge this place by its appearance! Picked this place due to reviews on tripadvisor, drove to it and almost did not go in due to the appearance from the outside. My husband made me go in and so glad that he did! Service is great and food is great and reasonably priced. Crab rangoons are fantastic, egg rolls... More

I lived in Knoxville for about 5 years before discovering this place (all the while bemoaning the lack of a decent Chinese place). Now I get a chance to visit once every few weeks (it's about 20 minutes away). Most of the dishes are fantastic. The eggrolls are some of my favorites for appetizers, and the kung pao and curry...

Golden Garden is the best Chinese restaurant in Knoxville. Most of the other are the same Chinese-restaurant-in-a-box as every other Chinese restaurant in town. The menu is even the same print except with a different restaurant name. The food at Golden Garden is truly scratch made awesome stuff!

Would like to start by saying we drive 20 minutes from west Knoxville for this place. Hands down the best Chinese in Knoxville. My personal favorite is the palace shrimp. It's family owned and operated with great service. They are closed on Sunday and Monday.
