Wow! I don’t know where are these recently bad reviews come from but I was at the Deer Garden with 5 firiends this past Saturday. The place was packed at 6pm but was empty at 7:15. Okay so no special points for the décor, bathroom hygiene (or lack thereof) or comfort of uneven chairs but it’s all about the food. And excellent prices! You might also want to turn a blind eye to their poorly dried dishes.
A five-star restaurant for 2 people (the night before) cost me 240$. An evening at Deer Garden for 6 (with service) cost 142$. This is a BYOW restaurant, so by all means, bring it.
The food was VERY fresh and abundant. The soups were hot, the spinach was extra crispy. I have nothing to say except I ate too fast. The brocoli was cooked just right, the Tao Chicken, Lemon Chicken, Beef à l’Orange and Shrimp were all delicious. The dumplings were as good as any. The only downside is I wrote an order of Imperial Rolls for us 6 and never got them, which isn’t a bad thing in itself because nothing more could fit into our stomaches. The service is quick. Food was arriving from everywhere onto the table (which might be a little overwhelming), and this influences you to eat fast, if you want to eat it while it’s hot.
Overall, would go there again because of the freshness and quick service.
