Food was fresh and well prepared. Service was exceptional. I had the spicy Emperor's chicken and my wife had the Pad Thai. Both were excellent and came with some of the best fried rice I've ever had. The restaurant service was fast and efficient and the wait staff was very attentive. My only complaint was that it is so nosy... More

We went with a group of 7 to Formasa Garden and ordered a bunch of different dishes to share. The service was very good. They kept our water glasses full, etc. We ordered 2 different soups: Crab & Asparagas and Special Won Ton. Both of the bowls said they served 2, but I think the portion was generous and would...

The food at Formosa Garden was delicious! Cost was very reasonable Was there in early afternoon on a Saturday and did not have to wait more than 5 minutes. Very glad the other place we planned on dining was closed.

This is apparently a main stay of Chinese food in San Antonio. Spacious dining room, you never feel squashed. We were in a large group and easily accomodated. Servers seemed to be everywhere. They have an early dinner option with a limited menu that they seem to get out quickly, and it looked excellent. I enjoyed a special order dish,... More

I will never understand how San Antonio (known for their Tex-Mex) can have the best Asian cuisine in Texas, but they do. We have been so many places in and around other major cities in Texas, but can find none better than Formosa Garden. Their menu and their food have remained consistent for more than 20 years. Be sure to... More

My husband ordered cucumber salad, was told sushi bar was closed. Short while after they brought him a salad and told him special cucumber salad just for him. He shared his salad with me, when I put what I thought was a cucumber in my mouth I was surprised to find some chewed up gum mixed in with his salad.... More

I eat a lot of Chinese food on the road looking for something great. Most of the time it's a greasy flop..... not here. Kung Pao chicken was delicious - great flavor, all white meat chicken. The wonton soup was okay, but the egg roll was great! Better then my favorite place at home!

This dish is good. Could be better. Shrimp was overlooked and too much sauce. I will go back again for it.

This is my stand-by when I am looking for Chinese food for lunch or early bird dinner and don't want to spend a bunch. Service has been good to very good. Lunch specials include ice tea. Dinner specials do not. For dinner, you get white rice, entree (chicken w/vegetables for me), egg roll and soup. I like their hot and... More

I do not recommend this place for service. We went to the restaurant for lunch to be with my Family. The waitress was so rude throwing the menus on the table. Telling us we had to hurry up and order within 3 minutes because the kitchen was about to close. She was very pushy and everything we ordered she looked... More
