Ate here recently with the family. There were six of us, we were sat right away. Service was polite and fast. Food was fresh and slightly above average for a Chinese restaurant. Portions were just the right size. Would eat here again if we are in the mood for Chinese while visiting Estes.

The only name on the building is "Chinese", not "China Garden". It's not really an "Asian Grill", just basic Chinese food, with Chinese staff. Our group went early in the evening, with few other customers there, yet it took a long time for orders to be taken and about 45 minutes before the first plate was served. The food was... More

We had been eating out at restaurants for a week now and just wanted something easy that we could take with us to our cottage. We had a craving for Chinese food, but our first thought was that we would not find a good Chinese restaurant in Estes Park. We threw that out the window and went for it. We... More

Really it was just a little boring, the inside was pretty small, the food was a little expensive, the servings a little small. Not really anything to make it stand out....

This is the only Chinese restaurant in Estes Park and was run by a Chinese staff, so we expected it to be outstanding. Although the food was good, it was not top notch. It was also fairly expensive. We were there a little early for dinner and wanted to exchange steamed rice for fried rice, but they wouldn't make any... More

My husband and I had visited China Garden in previous years while visiting Estes. Food had been good but service slow. However, on our last visit, we left after 10 minutes, without ordering. There were only 3 other tables filled, but we were ignored. Two tables in the front were piled high with dirty dishes. The waitress was paying more... More
