We ate at Green Tea for the first time last week and liked it so much we went back twice since then. The food is delicious. If you're in Sanford and want good Chinese food, go to Green Tea...

We had been here a few times and there seems to be inconsistency it the food, it has been good, not very good and average. We decided to try it again after being on the road for hours and chose a vegetable dish that was quite good and a special that my wife liked. Much better than the last time... More

Spare ribs, egg roll, chicken wings, barbecue pork fried rice and a variety of lunch entrees make this chinese restaurant a great stop. Good service. If you like Cantonese food this is really good.

We have driven by the Green Tea many times but never tried it until today. The friendly staff greeted and seated us immediately. I do have to say the odor of mothballs hit me right off-don't know what that was all about. Anyway, the tables and silverware were spotless and the dining room small but comfortable. Many choices on the... More

Excellent Chinese food. Full bar. Tiki drinks, Great appetizers and large dishes that will feed more than two people for low costs. Always fresh food and friendly staff. Went there twice in two weeks. Left there satisfied like the happy Buddha.

Green Tea is one of my favorite go to restaurants in Sanford. we are always welcomed with a smile and the food is always great. I really like the House lo mein which is full of veggies and proteins.

This restaurant is the only sit down asian restaurant in town. It was excellent when it opened a few years ago, but the menu is getting old and the quality ordinary.

Sad story. When it first opened it was great. Now? We've had better food from a gas station deli. Really..... don't waste your money and time. Greasy, tasteless, straight from the freezer and the canned section. I don't understand how they stay in business.
