Closest and favorite when we lived in a hotel for 2 weeks waiting for our furniture to be delivered. Hasn't changed much. Most combination meals were between $7&$10 . My friend was able to special order his sauce.

I frequented Joy Garden at lunch time, where the staff was able to fill my request for "chicken and rice", which was not on the menu. The chicken and rice was excellent and the container was large for plenty to fill your appetite.

The food is good and plentiful. This restaurant has been at this location for as long as I can remember. It's good for lunch and/or dinner. They have a huge variety and I typically lean to the Kung Po Shrimp.

It has been a while since I've visited this establishment. Before my one and only visit, I had heard of the seemingly popular Chinese restaurant. I had heard many good things. Upon arrival, one can be impressed by the decor. Which is the typical style...More
