Don’t waste your time. You can have better flavor from a box in the frozen section. Way over priced.

Not only were we disappointed with our take out meal, greasy and unauthentic, I got an extra unauthorized charge on my card. Avoid.

Had their 8 Treasure dish for lunch and was very pleased with the presentation, the quantity and quality of the food. It was prepared quickly and had a delicious taste. The property is a bit run down, but the owners run a wonderful restaurant. Would...be worth a repeat visit.More

With both of us being vegetarians, we found several dishes that were satisfactory. The food was good and the price was reasonable. The server was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Pay no attention to the reviewer who wrote "Don't Go There". We were...visitors to the area and are glad we did not read that review. As for the comment about "chewy chicken" .... our advice: become a vegetarian and that would not matter at all.More

Was looking for somewhere to eat out close to our hotel whilst overnighting in Flagstaff on a coach tour. Most places in the vicinity seemed to be fast food outlets so we chose China Garden. We went at about 8pm and first thing we noticed...was a completely empty car park but put this down to it being a Monday night. The place was empty on arrival. We were shown to a table and were given Chinese tea and water. No other drinks were offered which was the first time this has ever happened to me in a restaurant. We ordered the 3 course special menu. The hot and sour soup was fine and tasty. My sweet and sour chicken was another matter. The chicken was tough, chewy and gristly and very dark in colour. I thought it must be thigh meat rather than breast but after keep spitting out gristly pieces I really began wondering if it was chicken I was actually eating. The food was all served in a rush and the appetiser came late as we were already part way through the main course. The filling in the wantons was just as appalling as the chicken whatever it was and the egg roll no better and by then I had completely lost my appetite. The price seemed reasonable at first but the food was so bad that it was a waste of money. The only positive was the very pleasant young waiter trying his best to do a good job at such a bad place. Worst Chinese food I have ever eatenMore

Nice staff, fast service, and good prices for the food. I called initially because I am not familiar with their menu. They said, “yes, we serve tofu!” I was like great we are on the way. Lots of seating and open dining area. Staff greeted...us quickly and provided seats and beverages with water and tea on the table. Menu was well laid out and the options are good. We ordered and food was quickly delivered. Food was good and good amount for the price. We ordered Two tofu dishes, chop suey, egg rolls, and it all came out to like $32.12. Would go again if we visit again.More

First of all, Flagstaff only has about a half dozen Chinese restaurants. We decided to try China Garden. The building is a non-descript barn motif, and the interior is nothing special either. However, the food was quite good. The hot and sour soup was very...delicious especially on a cool evening. The Garlic chicken was also very good, however the beef with snow peas admittedly was rather bland. It only cost of $29.37 for the 3 of us (less than $10 apiece including tax). The employees and manager appeared to be working very hard to please everyone too! If you want better Asian food at higher prices then Sakura is your best choice.More

I have had delivery from here 4 times, all of which were 20 minutes up to 1.5 hours after expected time. The food is greasy and has no flavor. Does not satisfy Chinese cravings!

A pretty good selection--fairly basic--but good. A little slow to refill some items. Food fresh, service average for a buffet.

Average Chinese food but in a town where you probably wouldn't expect any. Family run and friendly. But don't pick a very warm day because they don't have air conditioning. Good for takeout to your nearby motel.
