I had business visitors from China in town, and they loved ths place. They could speak Chinese to some of the wait staff, and were able to get dishes made like they are made in China, very different than Western Chinese food.

This place has never failed to offer the best service and best food every visit and last night was, I estimate, our 8th or 9th so far. Between my husband and myself, we've tried many chicken, beef and shrimp dishes and ALL were delicious! The early bird menu is offered 7 days a week! And it is plenty of food!

Hubby and I went for dinner. He had the sesame chicken; generous portion and good flavor. I had the pad thai which came with shrimp, chicken, and tofu; absolutely loved it! I think it is better than my local thai restaurant version! Service was good, waitress was a little cut and dry but did a good job.

Ate here while on business with some co-workers and really liked it. The food was very good and they have good lunch specials. Also enjoyed the soup. My service was also very good, I would return.

I went to this place to eat with a group meeting there at 11:00 a.m.--opening time for lunch. We each ordered separately from the menu. I ordered sesame chicken, since I like it and usually order it on my first visit to a restaurant to judge its standards in accordance with my likes. It was a BIG MISTAKE to do... More

We've been regulars here since we moved here in 2006. We came from the Los Angeles area, which was a Mecca for fantastic Asian restaurants. Most of the other Chinese restaurants we've tried were major disappointments. But Formosa Garden has always been great! We've liked just about everything we've tried here. And the great service and food are always consistent.... More

Ate at the hibachi grill. There were 8 of us and they sat us at a grill that did not work. Our food was cooked at the grill down from us and we saw very little of the "cooking", which is a big part of the experience. It was a 3 hour excercise. The salad was tasty but very small.... More

During my recent visit to San Antonio, I dined with family whom live locally and recommended this eating establishment. Upon entering this rather large restaurant, with grand dragon dog statues and inviting foyer, I already felt comforted with greetings from staff. We quickly seated and within no time enjoying house specialty soups for a starter. Three dishes we requested to... More

Honestly, this is the best Chinese ever! I am so picky and compare other restaurants to this one, they don't compare. The triple delight is the best dish to get here. They have various options of platters to choose from. The shrimp toast is great and I absolutely love their egg rolls!!!! Please go enjoy this great food.

My family of four had lunch Tuesday at Formosa Garden. We orderes from the lunch menu: Triple Delight, Beef with Broccoli and Beef with Vegetables. Each dish was served with fried rice and choice of fried wonton or egg roll and ice tea for $7.95. The waiter was pleasant and only waited maybe 5-10 minutes for our hot tasty dishes... More
