Fountain of hope ....

During my recent visit to San Antonio, I dined with family whom live locally and recommended this eating establishment.

Honestly, this is the best Chinese ever! I am so picky and compare other restaurants to this one, they don't compare. The triple delight is the best dish to get here. They have various options of platters to choose from. The shrimp toast is great and I absolutely love their egg rolls!!!! Please go enjoy this great food.

My family of four had lunch Tuesday at Formosa Garden. We orderes from the lunch menu: Triple Delight, Beef with Broccoli and Beef with Vegetables. Each dish was served with fried rice and choice of fried wonton or egg roll and ice tea for $7.95. The waiter was pleasant and only waited maybe 5-10 minutes for our hot tasty dishes... More

If you're looking for something different in Chinese food the Formosa Shrimp is a must have. A wonderful cream sauce really compliments the delicious shrimp.

We have been disappointed ur last several visits to Formosa Garden. Their hot and sour soup was served lukewarm with none of the punch it used to have, very bland tasting. The stir fry dishes also taste very bland now. They either have changed recipes or have a new cook. The many vacant tables on a usually very crowded Saturday... More

They've been around for as long as I can remember and I've done dine in and take out and have ordered Thai food, Japanese food and Chinese and each one is very good. I have never... More

For Chinese - American food, it doesn't get any better than Formosa. (Their sushi is great also.) The atmosphere is soothing, and service is always friendly and quick. The menu is extensive and complete with super fresh ingredients. Also no small feat: they received a perfect score from the health inspector!

I used to come here all the time when I lived here 11 yrs ago. What a surprise to return here and find Mr. Yoon the sushi chef still there and providing the same great service and food as I remembered. I truly think of Mr. Yoon and Formosa as an iconic part of San Antonio. I recommend sitting at... More

This 09 staple provides fresh food, lots of choice, and friendly staff. Come before six for great prices. Easy takeout keeps them on my speed dial.
