“Closed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This place was awesome. It is unfortunately closed. There is another Chinese restaurant that went into it but it is nowhere near the quality of Formosa Gardens. It will be missed.

“Best place in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2011

My wife, two adult children, and I had General Tso Chicken, Veg Soft Noodles, Beef with Broc, and Chicken Fried Rice. We have eaten at the other Chinese restaraunts in town, and I believe that nothing measures up to the quality of the food. It was delicious with large portions. The sauses are all made from scratch and are delicious. They have the best crab rangoon and egg rolls I have ever made.

“Not as good as I Thought”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2010

Crab Rangoon: there was no crab in the rangoon,. they tasted good. but crab rangoon without crab is just a cream cheese dumpling.

Hot and Sour Soup: The one thing that was Excellent, well seasoned and fresh ingeredients. the water chestnuts still had a good crunch to them outstanding. Other diners at our table also had good things to say about the egg flower soup.

Orange Peel Beef, General Tso's chicken and Sesame Chicken: What a dissapointment. The sauce used on all three was the same sauce. and it was too salty. Most other chinese restaurants I have been to use an orange flavored sauce for orange beef/chicken and a sweeter tangy sauce for sesame chicken, They used the same sauce for everything. At least the Sweet and Sour Chicken was as expected. but missing the peppers and onions you normally see.

Fried Rice: No vegetables. no meat, very little if any eggs. and the rice was bark brown. Very unappetizing.

“Great food Great price and great service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2010

My wife & I have been going here for several years and enjoy every visit. it would be worth the trip if you are from out of town. The food is authentic and the prices are great. Very relaxing surroundings for a perfect dining experience.
