Good Chinese Food

Overall the Chinese food here is what you expect salty, sweet, some good flavor and freshly made. The Kung Pao chicken and chicken and vegetables in brown sauce are always good. Their chicken noodle soup is really flavorful as well.

We ordered three entries. It took them half an hour to get our foods ready. The foods were disappointingly super greasy also. Definitely not going back.

My wife, daughter and I went to Lotus Garden on a Saturday evening; the place was packed and we did not have a reservation, but we did not have to wait long for a table. It reminded me of restaurants in China as it was crowded, the staff was hurried and somewhat disorganized and the food was average. By crowded... More

I almost made an exception to my rule of not giving restaurants a 5 unless they are fabulous. First of all this place is very authentic. Secondly the seafood choices are amazing. But most importantly the noodles are fabulous. And with a glass kitchen wall you can watch the chefs preparing your lunch/dinner. The roast meats, we had duck and... More

The menu in this restaurant is extensive with some unusual dishes described as "gourmet" dishes. Many Caucasians wouldn't eat these dishes. But this also means that this restaurant has kept its authentic Chinese character. My husband and I had vegetable egg rolls which were good. I had ordered shrimp toast as appetizer but settled for the egg rolls when they... More

Ok, you dont go here for the service but the food makes you willing to overlook that. Common americanized dishes and traditional ones you dont often find in this country. We get take out allot from here but enjoy eating in because of their homemade noodle soups. Steamed dumplings and crab rangoons are great apps and we enjoyed complex spicy... More

This is my choice when I am in the area. Absolutely great food. As the other reviewers say, it is authentic. The hand pulled noodles are excellent and you can sit and watch the cook make them while you are eating. They are usually very busy, but don't let that put you off. The menu is about the size of...

fantastic menu. And every dish was a cut above. Fresh ingredients, crisp hot and full of flavor. Service was very good. In an area with great asian food, this is one of the best I have been to.

Very nice Chinese cuisine served in a very at-home atmosphere. Staff is very nice, service is quick and accurate. Ordered the soft shell crabs and it was very tasty. Also ordered shrimp & scrambled eggs (not on the menu) and it arrived hot and fluffy. They have a special of hand-made noodles, but I did not have this time. Portions... More
