Decent Chinese food in a small town

Coming from the Bay Area where there is abundant Chinese restaurants. This one stacked up pretty well. We ordered the family special combo for 2 people which gave 2 egg rolls/roasted park, sweet and sour soup, fried rice and 3 entries with Mongolian beef, chicken and pork with vegetables for $13... read more

Service was quick. The food was decent Chinese- not stellar, but kind of like home-cooked Chinese. The portions are a good size. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of the resto- it may be off-putting but walk in the door and enjoy.

We always time our visit to Forks so we can dine there for lunch or dinner. An extensive menu and every meal we have tried has been excellent. And the best Hot and Sour Soup ever. Ambiance needs to be updated, however. Staff is friendly and efficient.

Typical Chinese dishes, overall good quality. Black bean chicken and vegetarian chow mein are above average.

On a 3 day fishing trip to Forks, Washington we visited the South-North restaurant for dinner on our first night in town. We opted for one of the combination dinners that offered the usual soup, appetizer, and three entrees, all for a very reasonable $12 per person. The server was efficient but a little cool to our inquiries and questions.... More

Bad Chinese food. Satisfactory as an American food. I was surprise they don't have a lot of seafood menu since the location is surrounded by water. If you are used to real Chinese food in the S.F area this is not the place to go.

We are return customers and have always had a great experience since the first day we ate here. Service was great, especially for our group which was 8 plus two toddlers. Service was excellent and quick, some of our party was late and they delivered their portions of the meal to the table when the rest of our party arrived... More

South North Gardens served up good food, not great food however no where in Forks are you going to get Michelin star food. The menu is overwhelming and any restaurant would be hard pressed to deliver top notch quality on such an extensive list. First set your expectations at "patient". The people can be friendly but when the restaurant is... More

Four of us ate here with our baby. The food was pretty good but the menu is enormous and confusing and the waiter, who I assume was the owner, kept pressuring us to order certain things and didn't bring us the drinks we ordered. Not sure if it was a language barrier (his English is hard to understand) or if... More
