Went to this medium sized restaurant for lunch. It was busy and fairly noisy. The food was good, if not excellent. Items on the menu are primarily Chinese with a few American dishes as well. We had 1000 year old eggs and spinach, a sole dinner, an udon vegetable dish and a mushroom and tofu dish. Portions are not huge... More

The restaurant is Hong Kong cafe style which serves Chinese and American food. Prices are very reasonable and the service is very fast. Not great ambiance for a romantic date, but you are there for the food and it is comfortable.

Where can you go for hundreds of items to choose from and still won't break your bank? Garden Cafe, that is. There are many Hong Kong style cafe in the San Gabriel Valley area, but this one is solid in both food and services. When we say "Hong Kong Style Cafe", it's referring to what we used to called the... More

This place has been opened for more than a decade, and has actually been remodeled once. Comfort Hong Kong cafe food, that the local Chinese (both immigrant and ABC) will always eat at. Definitely, even if you're not Asian, fear not, you don't even have to order the Chinese stuff and they're almost never closed. The food is cheaper and... More

We recently stayed in nearby Arcadia/Pasenda & drove about 15 minutes along Valley Blvd a/k/a "the Hungry Eatery Street" dotted with many Chinese, Asian & other restaurants plus the Burger places, etc. We stopped by for a late lunch, free off-street parking available behind the restaurant on 2 levels. Breakfast is served daily, available for take-out, for $5 to $6... More

i LOVE this place. Things i usually order are the Baked Rice with Crab Meat and Chicken or the Baked Rice Sole Filet and spinach. Both dishes are very tasty and light on your wallet. :) Overall the value here is unbeatable. Portions are HUGE and prices are LOW which makes this place a very good place to eat at.
