Since I'm Asian and from NYC, I always lower my expectations for Chinese food outside of any major metropolitan area..
But this place was authentic. The food was tasty and the service good. This place good enough that we had dinner here twice during our stay in Estes Park. It's a bit off the beaten path and can be tricky to find since the restaurant doesn't have it's name out front. It's just called "Chinese Restaurant". Also encouraging was that plenty of locals seem to use this restaurant. This restaurant should definitely be ranked higher.
The Hot and Sour soup was particularly good

The food was good, but pricey. The soup for two was very good and appropriately sized and the price of this was OK.

Our kids wanted Chinese food, so we stopped here. The waitress was super friendly, the place was quiet, but the food was just okay. It was extremely over priced. Like another reviewer said, the orange chicken and sesame chicken were identical. We all felt I'll a couple of hours later, and will definitely not plan on eating Chinese food the next time are in Estes.

Located across the street from the big slide, we was not sure about the place when we first went there by location of being away from downtown, but once inside and seeing so many locals eating here, we wasn't disappointed. Food was cooked to order and very fresh. Large servings, in fact we was able to take back to cabin and have another meal. Strongly recommend if you are in the mood for Chinese!!

In a sea of mediocrity, China Garden stands out. No, the ambience isn't the greatest, but every dish is consistently very good. I have been here many times and never had anything that wasn't delicious.
