Absolutely terrible food. Our serving of red Tuna sushi was dyed and stained the chopsticks and rice. Greasy, overdone rice. Just awful. Nice people but that was about it. The interior was dirty and dated. Never again.

We have been regular visitors of this long-time Exeter restaurant and have always been pleased. Management has changed recently and we have found a slight degradation in the food. It is my opinion this was one of the best Chinese restaurants in the past but may have lost some luster to Szechuan Taste of Exeter. The ambiance is still pleasant... More

Service was great, food was great with abundant portions on the lunch menu, they even had small touches like a live orchids and the price was spot on.

Spacious, clean, and attractive with a big bar and sushi station. Big portions, so you have lunch covered the next day. I love 3 Delights. The won ton soup is very good, too.

I have known the owners of the Pine Garden Restaurant since it opened 20 years ago. In recent years the owners had not kept up the standards of the original. Now it is owned and operated by Johnny and Debbie who have improved it by adding a sushi bar with about 6 seats, and a few seats at the regular... More

Our son gets take out from The New Pine Garden all the time. We were house sitting and so we decided to dine here. Our $6 martini's were fantastic. We shared the Tako salad which consists of octopus slices with salad greens . At $6 it was nicely done and tasty. My wife had the kung pao chicken at $10.... More
