We have driven by the Green Tea many times but never tried it until today. The friendly staff greeted and seated us immediately. I do have to say the odor of mothballs hit me right off-don't know what that was all about. Anyway, the tables and silverware were spotless and the dining room small but comfortable. Many choices on the... More

Excellent Chinese food. Full bar. Tiki drinks, Great appetizers and large dishes that will feed more than two people for low costs. Always fresh food and friendly staff. Went there twice in two weeks. Left there satisfied like the happy Buddha.

Green Tea is one of my favorite go to restaurants in Sanford. we are always welcomed with a smile and the food is always great. I really like the House lo mein which is full of veggies and proteins. When I go here I always check the specials because they are well priced and always tasty. We live about 1/2... More

This restaurant is the only sit down asian restaurant in town. It was excellent when it opened a few years ago, but the menu is getting old and the quality ordinary.

Sad story. When it first opened it was great. Now? We've had better food from a gas station deli. Really..... don't waste your money and time. Greasy, tasteless, straight from the freezer and the canned section. I don't understand how they stay in business.

When this place first opened it was great, but my last few experiences were less than stellar. Almost everything is soaked with grease to the point of it dripping from the chicken fingers. The crab rangoon was tough, rather than light and crispy. If you're looking for a good place for Chinese, pass on this one.

The food is okay, but the space is too crowded. I felt like I was sitting with the next couple over. We ended up making our order to go and ate at home.

We have been here a number of times, the food is always well-prepared. Lunch combos start at $6.25. They are served in a very "appetizing" manner on a tray/plate divided into sections for the rice, duck sauce, some lettuce with a tangy dressing, and the appetizers. Beef teriyaki is very tender. Chicken fingers have a thick but tasty batter. Spare... More
