“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We've been going to Rose Garden for years and have not found any other place that comes even close to the quality and quantity of food you receive. We mostly order take out, which usually only takes 20 minutes from time of order to pick up. There was only one time we weren't happy with an entree and notified them. They happily credited us the next time we were there. The amount of food you receive in an order is so large it can be use as a 2nd meal the next day and is just as tasty. They now have a 2nd location on 105th and University in Blaine, MN which is much closer which means more meals we don't have to cook! It is cash or MN check only so plan ahead.

“Sunday night non special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Stopped by with my family at 8:30 pm on a Sunday night. We wanted to dine in and have supper. We were told we could, but had to promptly leave at 9pm (Company policy). We decided to get it to go and eat at a nearby family members home. Ordered 3 entries. Counterperson was rude and had an attitude. Very innappropriate! The food came in a decent and timely manner. Food quality was poor with only one of three entries that was of good quality. The others were barely edible. would not eat here again.

By the way, if you want to use a Credit Card, forget it, they dont take them!

“It's been too long... I'm going tomorrow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

I am a hundred miles away from Rose Garden, but every time I get a chance to make a run to the North of the Twin Cities, I indulge myself in their wonderful lunch buffet. Not really a buffet, but Chinese family dining as employees wend their way through the tiny dining room ladling out of their giant steel bowls the freshest egg rolls, the finest beef and veggies, the crunchiest fried chicken, the softest fried rice and the freshest fried dessert balls coated with sugar that I have ever had in a restaurant for about seven bucks. All you can eat... cash only... and a truly unique experience that will absolutely not leave hungry... even an hour later.

“Most unique buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

We were really impressed by their way of offering a lunch buffet.
You sit down and every 2 minutes or so somebody with a bowl and a spoon comes by
and asks you whether you want to try something. It really gives ``fast food'' a new meaning.
It was good chines food, all you can eat for only $5.99 !
Giving these terms you can imagine that it is very hard to not over eat and constantly refuse new food offers.
I never had anything of this quality cheaper or faster. You must pay in cash or in-state check
but we were prepared. The only improvement I'd like to suggest is to have a bowl of white rice
on the table, they did offer fried rice but for some like us this is too rich and we prefer the plain white stuff.

“Wow! What a delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2011

We were invited as guests of regulars. They gushed about the place before-hand. They were right. The best Chinese food we have had since we can remember. We enjoyed the Saturday noon buffet - The method of serving the food is unique. It isbrought to your table and served fresh and hot, as much or as little as you would like, all you can eat. The service was outstanding from personable and efficient people, and they really knew how to move. Our favorites were the Chicken-Fried Rice, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Shrimp Stir-Fry (oh so good!). I cannot say enough. We were very impressed, satisfied, and will definitely be going back. I hope that one day they are able to expand to provide their excellent product to more people. Not only do I recommend the Rose Garden, but you must try it.
