“Great lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My coworkers and I come here about 2-3 times a month for lunch. They have great lunch specials. I usually order the Garlic Chicken. You cannot go wrong with that dish. It has the perfect amount of chicken and veggies. I also like the Kung Pao Three Flavor.

Lunch comes with egg drop soup and crispy noodles. The lunch plate comes with fried rice and an egg roll. Sometimes the plate comes with crab rangoon, but 85% of the time, it's served with a veggie egg roll.

The staff is always friendly and the service is quick. My only complaint is that their sweet and sour sauce comes out cold and clumpy.

“China's Little Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a little garden with exquisite food, great service, and exceptional value. This restaurant could be classified as a little hole in the wall because it is so little, but it's always busy. People are faithful to this establishment because the food is great, the service is good, and very reasonably priced.
Their lunch combos are better, LOTS better than the fast food copy cats, and you can hide away in a nice corner to enjoy a delicious meal in a quiet environment. The owners are there every day, and they know their long time customers well, but that doesn't keep them from making even the greenies like old friends.
Individuals, couples, groups, and family all find a quiet garden with great food at this little place. Check it out.
