“GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Saturday was my first time eating at China Garden. I love Chinese food and have eaten it in many states and countries. I think my shrimp and vegetsables dish at CG was one of the best I have ever had, Sissiling rice soup was very good also. The atmosphere was a little frumpy but the food was great. The service was excellent and the place was very clean. I will return. I am going to try to duplicate the shrimp dish at home tonight.

“Generous Portions and Vegetarian Options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Almost sad to say but we ate here 3 times this week while at a camp meeting. The spring rolls were great. Likes the option of steamed white rice, brown rice or refried rice. There was a vegetarian area in the menu. First time we had almond chicken. Wonderful, tender, fake chicken with almonds. Everyone enjoyed it. The next time we had orange chicken. Another seitan specialty. Good, wish there were more vegetables but waiter said I could have had them added. Fake chicken pretty tough to eat. Spicier than I wish. The next times e got the hot and sour vegetarian ribs without any hot spice. These were just excellent. Waiter pleasant too. Atmosphere is a bit old and needs updating. Very pleased with the food.

“Regular customers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We are regular customers at the China Garden. While I am not a fan of quantity over quality, I will have to admit that I can get 3 meals from one dinner serving at this restaurant. They are very generous with their portions. Their prices are reasonable even for one meal, so this is a great deal for people with small appetites who appreciate leftovers. As for quality, I enjoy the meals there very much. Their string beans and chicken is a fine light meal and there is brown rice available upon request for a small charge. Some of the entrees are very heavy however (very sweet and rich) and if that is your favorite kind of Chinese food, this restaurant will fit the bill - literally. Prices are quite good.

“By far the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The food here is excellent. Best in town. Very large menu and the price is not that bad. I get the orange chicken everytime and I have yet to find a place that can beat it.

“Excellent Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Can't go wrong with the Cashew Chicken....and always take some home for later. Can't visit without getting the Sizzlin Rice Soup. Wish the owner would do something to update the surroundings...always the same decor. Needs a much needed update. Crowded area for seating....the owner's "OFFICE" is one of the booths...very awkward!!!!
