This place has been in Estes Park for many years, but has dramatically improved it's cuisine in the last year or so. Don't know if it's new management, new chef, or what. They are chronically understaffed, but still really good for dine-in or take-out. There's...More

We eat here regularly and have yet to be disappointed. Everything we have tried is quite good. The service can be slow, but it's mostly a one-woman show, and she does well. We are especially fond of the House Fried Rice and the Orange Beef....More

THE BEST ASIAN FOOD IN ESTES PARK! Dine-in or Take-out. It's delicious! China Garden Asian Grill is a traditional family owned Chinese restaurant located right in the heart of Estes Park Colorado. The owner, Li Lin, is a local Coloradoan who has been serving fresh and delicious food to the wonderful people of Colorado for over 30 years. Located near the Aerial Tramway, The Adventure Park and walking distance of downtown Estes Park, China Garden provides the best home made family style Chinese food in Estes Park! China Garden has quickly become a "local's favorite" in Estes Park. Whenever you walk into the restaurant, you will observe locals enjoying the fresh food and friendly service. It is impossible to have dinner without seeing numerous locals dropping in to pick up their "take-out" orders. In Estes Park, if you win the loyalty of the locals, you will be loved by all. China Garden has become the most recommended Asian restaurant in town. The portion sizes are generous and the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. The tea is always hot and the owner is never out-of-sight.
