Cashew Shrimp

Went back to the Happy Garden the other night for dinner. I ordered the Cashew Shrimp. It had plenty of large shrimp with mixed veggies. Most of my experience with them has been "take out". It appears that a large portion of their business still is. While service was slow, it was a good meal.

We had the buffet lunch here as we passed through on our road trip. The lunch was very reasonably priced and the food was excellent. The buffet was replenisihed frequently, so nothing ran out, there was a good choice of dishes for mains and desserts.

We have been going to Happy Gardens for years, and the food is very good. We like to get the fried rice, hunan beef, lo mein, and their steamed dumplings.

My family eats at Happy Garden frequently, the food is reasonably priced and the quality of the food is good. The egg rolls are probably the best around the central VA area, they are thin crusted filo. The sauces are very authentic, we love the hunan shrimp. During lunch time they do have a small buffet, but it ends at... More
