“Once was enough”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2010

We usually give things a 2nd chance, but the food was so bland when we tried it that we just couldn't give it another try. We had a chicken dish, a beef dish, and a lo mein delivered - they were prompt and courteous but the food was tasteless.

“Great Chinese in Montgomery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2009

The Garden Lake Restaurant is a family owned and run establishment with great chinese food. We go weekly for the great lunch deals. Our kids (college age) love to come home for special occasions because we normally go to Garden Lake to celebrate and have the family dinner.

The family dinner is served with appetizers, soup and your choice of multiple entrees. This is served family style on large platters so you can share with the whole table. This gives us an opportunity to order the usual favorites and try new dishes too.

Also, we work in the area so we take advantage of the delivery to our office building - we notify the friends in neighboring suites and everyone immediately gets their to go menus out so that we can place a large order and make it worth while for the delivery. It is always quickly delivered - hot and fresh.

The proprietors, Jackie and Vin (sorry I only know their first names) are wonderful. Jackie runs the kitchen and Vin handles the front, their children wait tables and keep the tea glasses filled. They provide personal service with a smile and always make sure their guests are well taken care of...as you can tell I recommend this special place. It is located in a strip center on Highway 105 between Old River Rd and Walden Rd on the north side about 3 miles East of the town of Montgomery.

Don't let the nondescript exterior fool you - it has great food, comfortable seating and very budget friendly and easy on the wallet. Hope you give this place a try - it is a 5 out of 5 for our family, relatives, co-workers and friends.
