Have been here many times. Food has always been fresh, plentiful and delicious. Take out always good. They make General Tso's the best!

Before I retired I've eaten lunch at the restaurant several times a week for twenty-two years. Over that time I have eaten everything on the menu and not once was I disappointed. I've eaten Chinese food from all corners of the United States and have not found any that were as good. The lunch portions are more than I should... More

This is our favorite Chinese Restaurant; the food is hot, fresh, tasty and a good value for the money. The Won Ton soup is very good and their tea, both hot served in a teakettle and iced tea is good & strong, not watered down or weak.

We ate at Oriental Gardens at the recommendation of my mother in law who lives in Houston and has eaten at the OG a number of times. We expected good food, which we received, but we were not prepared for the size of the servings. After we were finished eating, we took home enough food for a complete second meal.... More

My husband and I thought we had the best Chinese restaurant nailed until we went to Oriental Gardens. Now a longtime favorite - this Chinese restaurant never lets us down whether it is for weeknight take out or special occasions like birthdays – the servers know you and remember you! The portions are generous, food delicious and all reasonableness priced.... More

While traveling we were looking for a good Chinese Restaurant and found this gem that a local suggested. We were not disappointed. We were greeted and sat by Evelia, she was very friendly and made us feel right at home. We ordered several different dishes that she recommended and they were all very good. The service was good and although... More

I have eaten here for many years. Several menu items are great. Once in a while the oil is stale and ruins the fried food. The sizzling rice soup is great, The shrimp toast and crab Rangoon are great if the oil is not old. The salt and pepper shrimp are delicious. My husband has the chicken lo mein and... More

This restaurant has been a staple for very nice Chinese cuisine for many years. There is a varied menu with something for every taste. The house fried rice is exceptional. Try the Happy Family plate with a cup of their very tasty egg drop soup. The service is warm and quick. The prices are very reasonable. Give this a try... More

Good food, good service but having a smoking area spoils the atmosphere. The smell of cigarettes permeates the non smoking area. If you are sensitive to cigarette smell this place is not for you. It's a shame because otherwise it's pretty good. The cigarette smell takes it off my list for me. Too bad.

My family and I have been going here over many years ... And the food is good, not great, reasonably priced. But, PLEASE, redecorate the interior! We stick with take out, works great!
