I frequent Emerald Gardens enjoying Healthy Diet and Vegetarian Dishes. It is my experience, the Chefs dishes are made with the freshest quality ingredients. Most importantly, the waiter comes to the table to make sure you are enjoying your meal. Shortly afterwards, at times, the...Chef comes to your table and asks if you're enjoying your meal. They are willing to prepare a substitute if you are unhappy. For this I gave Emerald Gardens five stars.More

We were disappointed in the quality of the taste of the food here! It was blah. Not sure what has changed here over the years but the food used to have a better flavor. The male server we had needs some people skills. He was...not friendly at all and my friend and I were afraid to ask for anything as he would just grunt. He just needs help with working with people especially in the restaurant business. Not sure that we would meet here again.More

My wife and I have been going to Emerald garden for years, mostly because there are no other sushi places nearby. The last time was the worst. I ordered some rolls, nigiri, soup and seaweed salad. The salmon nigiri was a tiny strip of fish...that only covered the top of the rice. The rolls were also mainly filler, very little fish. Management is reducing the amount of shrimp, salmon and tuna in all the sushi dishes. I am always amazed when I go to another sushi restaurant and get double the amount fish. Service was middle of the road, but the food was not worth the price...not at all. Don't go here for sushi.More

Our first time at Emerald. While the service wasn't that friendly, it was efficient. The food very good. Sushi- The Philadelphia roll and the Hollywood roll. Both really good. We ordered Lo-Mein with beef, 4 Seasons, and Sesame Chicken. Nice large servings and hot. The...Sesame chicken is crispy which is unusual, but still tasty. Left overs with the microwave made it softer which is how I'm used to it.More

Food here is wonderful regardless of the entree you select. Great prices and friendly wait staff. Large portions I always have to take some home.

I tried the lunch specials of Chicken and Mixed vegetables, MooGooGaiPan and Shrimp Lo Mein. The portions were huge and very tasty. My food was ready for pick-up when I arrived.

Called in an order here for carryout as we used to eat here all the time. Stopped as we felt the food has slipped. Still disappointed this time. The General Tsao's chicken was mostly fried breading - little meat and not much broccoli either. The...Pork Lo Mein was so so- just not super flavorful. We will drive a little further to get good Chinese. Dining room looked empty compared to how it used to be under the other owners.More

Probably the best Chinese food in York County. We have tried a lot of Chinese restaurants in the area, and we keep coming back here.

Truthfully the last time I was in this restaurant was close to three years ago. At that time the meal was bad. Food was overcooked and the oil used was too old and the entire meal tasted of that heavy, old flavor. For this reason,...I have not revisited this place.More
