“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Rainbow Gardens is the best Chinese food in the Champaign/Urbana area. We are always thrilled to try new dishes there and are never disappointed. Service is always great too. Second location in Urbana is wonderful as well.

“Maximum Chinese”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We arrived during the luncheon service on a Friday and were pleased to see that there was a minimum wait for a table. The aroma of Asian cooking permeated the atmosphere, making us even more hungry than we were. Although the venue was a bit small, there was apparently room for seating and dining in comfort. The staff greeted us pleasantly and we were seated. Service was quick and very professional. The menu seemed to have something for everyone including combination dinners as well as a la carte dishes. We were served promptly and the food was delicious. Everything was prepared perfectly and the taste was superb! Spring rolls were great and not greasy at all. We had pork fried rice and egg drop soup, both dishes were excellent.
This is a small place as restaurants go, but it is not to be missed while in the Champaign-Urbana area. We will definitely return, and this restaurant is a definite plus on the gastronmic list for the Midwest!

“Best Chinese Food Ever”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Outstanding Chinese Food, great service and a very pleasant dining atmosphere. This restaurant stands up to the best Chinese Restaurants in San Francisco. Great place to take a date or celebrate a special occasion. The newly opened second location in Urbana is every bit as good as the original in Champaign.

“New location for longtime restaurant in C/U”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Enjoyed the meal, food was good and hot. The service was friendly and prices are equivalent to most Chinese restaurants in the area. I have had the lunch Combination Lo Mein (it comes with choice of soup and a spring roll). We had the dumplings and crab rangoon for appetizers, both were enjoyable enough. Nice atmosphere for lunch or dinner.

“Great food - a little pricey!”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

The food is good but the prices are a little high for such a small restaurant with no real ambiance.
