Picked Hong Kong Garden at random and I was quite pleased. Food and service was good, and judging from the number of take away orders they filled they are a popular spot. Will certainly stop in next time I am in the area.

Always had a decent meal here until lately. The ribs used to be nice and crispy, now they are greasy and undercooked. The chow fun was also good in the past, now I wouldn't order it. After my last experience there I completely lost my taste for Chinese food. Eat in..nice dining room..byo..or take out only.

Exceptionally good if order from Chinese menu. Small place with bright lights. Chinese menu on he wall but also a special menu if you ask. Authentic Chinese dishes at reasonable price. I order steam sole fish and it was fresh and tasty. Don't judge the restaurant from the outside or Americanized menu. Come try it.

Service is great. Super friendly place. The owner is very customer service oriented. One of the few dishes - Chicken Clay Pot Rice - Pretty authentic and modest in pricing. Excellent lunch menu.

Culinary magic awaits beyond the doors of this nondescript storefront restaurant (actually hesitated at first) in an even more nondescript strip center recommended by my hotel. Hearty wonton dumplings left me yearning for more, and the roast pork with soft tofu was sublime. A definite "don't judge a book by it's cover" destination!

I LOVE Chinese food, but will NEVER go back to this place. The prices are expensive, the food was "SO-SO" at best, and the portions were relatively smaller than average. The staff was friendly.

Have been going to this restaurant for 30 years back when it was owned, I think, by a relative of the current owners. Kim and his wife are always ready to help, attentive, generous, and hospitable. The food is quite good, especially when one ventures off the very familiar to new territory, like some winey and darkly rich black beans... More

While staying in the area, I came across this spot. I ordered take out over the lunch hour on a weekend. The place was empty so my order was taken right away, but there was ample seating available for anyone wishing to dine in. I opted for Shrimp Egg Foo Young. I am fan of this dish and only a... More

It's hard to find great or even very good Chinese food in the area, but Hong Kong Garden makes the grade. They certainly have above average food. It's easy to miss the shop in a smallish strip mall and the outside is a bit unassuming, but give it a try. Another nice feature is that they have tables and seating... More

Staff was always at your call, and they had some of the best General Tso's Chicken I've ever had. Even the hard noodles and duck sauce they used instead of bread as a starter was phenomenal.
