Good Food and Service

Went here for the first time and was impressed. Our part was seated promptly by the hose and greeted promptly by our waitress. I had a lunch special of Shrimp with mixed vegetables. The food was served hot and not overcooked. Waitress was prompt to refill beverage glasses and settle our bills... read 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.

I live in San Antonio, and there are a number of excellent restaurants here that are completely off the tourist radar. Formosa Garden heads up that list. The owners are ethnic Chinese, who have opened a number of very successful restaurants. The Chinese food is excellent, as is the Hibachi grill, but you will find me at the Sushi Bar,... More

We are living nearby and have never stopped by Formosa Garden before, Duh'oh. What we were missing was delicious Chinese food served with a flair in an attractive environment. We stopped by after five and they offer Early Bird deals for 90 minutes. Our host was professional and gave us a nice table near the window that's when we met... More

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
