“rude waitress”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I ordered something that had peanuts in it and when I told the waitress I couldn't eat it she said "too bad" I think that was rude, I won't go back.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

This place has a great lunch value--two entrees, soup, and choice of steamed white or brown rice or fried rice. The staff is wonderful and if you go back to the restaurant more than once, they've memorized your order. It's fresh, hot, and tasty. We like the lemon chicken and almond chicken with mongolian beef and chicken chow mein. Not "sophisticated", but not an arm and a leg, either. It's a great value!

“Yikes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

When I was a kid we ate here on occasion. I had the misfortune of having to go there for a family dinner. The worst meal I have had in a really long time. The meats are so fatty, every single thing is breaded and fried and the sauces are tasteless and gooey. I thought our waitress was nice and handled a large crowd well. I will not be going back though.

“Slow service and very mediocre food...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We used to like this restaurant years ago but food doesn't seem to taste quite as good anymore. Maybe our taste has changed since we are not college students anymore and tried more sophisticated Chinese dishes, food seems to greesy and tasteless now.

“Top notch service-good value-food just ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2010

We spent about 45 minutes on trip advisor picking out a place to eat...settled on a really nice sounding place, put the address in our gps and headed out.....only to discover they were closed down! sad :( By this point we were so hungry, and we spotted Hong Kong Garden across the street. It didn't look like anything special from outside, but the parking lot was fairly full and so we decided to give it a try. We noticed the food smelled really good as we walked in. We glanced at the menu and the prices seemed reasonable, so when she asked if we wanted a table we said, "sure" The service was wonderful and the food was pretty good...a little on the bland side, but it appeared a lot of their clientelle were older locals. (maybe that is why) The interior decor looked a little old and tired, but not bad. They have been in business 30 years so they must be doing something right. It wasn't what we set out expecting, but it was a fairly good meal for the 2 of us 32.00 with tip and we left full and with leftovers.
