I ordered delivery and was told it would take 45 minutes. It took almost two hours! The food was nothing special; certainly not worth the wait.

We sincerely apologize for your delayed delivery meal . Yes , our delivery wait times are more often then not between 45 min - 1 Hour. Unfortunately on busier nights, with a bit more notice as you should have gotten , it is quite challenging to sustain these delivery times. We as a family owned restaurant hold ourselves to a high quality of standard to serve the city of Mission with great food . We do hope you give us another chance. On a side note , pickups are often recommended for for shorter wait times.

We moved to Mission 7 years ago and got tired of the Mandarin Garden Restaurant (they changed their food to a lower quality), so we decided to give the New Prawn Garden a try. Well, 4 years later we still love them. Their delivery is incredibly fast, the food is piping hot, and is a high quality. Best is their Prawns in Black Bean Sauce. So many large, juicy prawns and all the fresh cooked vegetables - yummy! Everything else we've ever tried on the menu has been incredibly tasty - even friends we've had over just love the food. You can also order it without MSG - no problem. They are very nice people to deal with.

Food was hot and very good. Service was fast and friendly. Not open for lunch though. There is nothing else to say.

The Prawn Garden has been a mainstay in Mission for decades, the sign is rather 1950's style and advertises Chinese/Canadian food, which gives some of my Asian friends a laugh, but It isn't the greasy spoon "chop suey", "chicken chow mein" buffet that some people seem to think when they are driving through Mission. People who know the restaurant go often and it can be quite crowded, especially on weekends. We have been there many times and always enjoyed it. For the sit down service the menu is varied and the food is very good and fresh and well prepared, the staff is friendly and quick. They also do "take out" set menus that more typically western of rice and 2 or 3 choices of sweet & sour pork, almond chicken etc, and while it is ok and the portions are huge, with usually enough for leftovers the next day, it is not the same as actually eating in dining room. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

The Chinese food at Prawn Garden is the best in mission. We ordered 4 dishes and all were fantastic. Our 2 year old could not get enough noodles, so the staff made him an extra plate so that he had some leftovers for the next day:)
