“Great Phad Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Spent one night in Blythe. Didn't have high expectations for this restaurant but the chicken Phad Thai was great! Very large portion, lots of tender chicken, great flavor and very inexpensive besides. I'd definitely go there again. The place was quite busy and lots of Asian customers which was indicative of the authentic food.

“A great spot in Blythe CA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I visited this restaurant based on a recommendation from my hotel manager. It looks quite nondescript from the outside and I would normally have just passed by. What a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. The food (especially the veggies) was very fresh and well prepared. The hot-and-sour soup was one of the better versions I have had, but could have been a touch "hotter". The egg rolls were crisp, not at all greasy, and very tasty. I wondered if they had been rolled in house, The curry was loaded with vegetables that looked as if they had just been picked and were prepared al dente. Apparently, they don't use MSG and all the food tasted very light. My only complaint was that the tea was quite tasteless and the ambiance was more than a bit plasticy. In fact, the tables are covered with a thick sheet of plastic. However, the food more than makes up for it. If you find yourself in Blythe, this is a good place to check out.

“pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We ate dinner at this restaurant in February 2013. We had asked our hotel for a recommendation. China Garden has an extensive menu. We ate a tofu and mixed vegetable selection which was well prepared, fresh and well seasoned. On the negative side, we are vegetarians and the vegetarian selection was very limited. That said, we were very happy with the quality of the meal we were served at a very reasonable price. If we are ever in Blythe again we would not hesitate in eating there again.

“Great food, excellent value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Tried this restaurant while staying in Blythe and found it to be very good. The Lo Mein was excellent. Our combination plates were very good, but the chicken on a stick was outstanding. The service was professional and our waitress was delightful.
