My wife and I enjoy a crispy whole fish and found it is served at New Garden. We have had it many times and are never disappointed. We like it with the sauce on the side and I think the sauce makes the meal complete. We usually sit in the bar area which is a small sports bar with multiple TV's. The service is always exceptional and the entire staff very personable. We also enjoy the wings and ribs. Make sure you share the fish as a it easily feeds two people.

After moving out of the city fifteen years ago, we were shocked to find that restaurants in the Dover area all seemed to close early. Then we found New Garden! The restaurant serves excellent traditional Chinese food but the atmosphere is what makes this restaurant special. Be sure to eat on the bar side. It is the closest thing that we've found to "Cheers." After one or two visits, "everyone knows your name." (and your favorite drink as well!) The bartender, Van, and his crew are so welcoming and are always meticulous about making sure that you get exactly what you want.

We used to go here every few months and then noticed that they kept getting health code violations from the town so we stopped.

New Garden is a Needham staple. It is always busy with take out and locals just stopping in at the bar. Nothing special, just good,ordinary chinese restaruant food.

This is the only restaurant that delivers to Dover, next town from needham. They open late, so the delivery option is very convenient.
