May Garden is not your typical Chinese food restaurant. While if offers some of the "Canadianized" options, it also has some great options that are probably ordered by the Asian guests you often see here (always a sign of a good Chinese restaurant). My favourite is the Chef's specialty Singapore noodles and the meat spring rolls with a pot of... More

There's never a lot of people in the restaurant when we attend, but the food is very good. I assume that they do a lot of takeout and delivery the staff is always polite and the food is very quick to come out.

All round decent food with good options. I like that they have a variety of vegetables rather than just green pepper and carrots. We have enjoyed a lot of the dishes and have found them to be consistent. One complaint is that if you ask for the dish to be spicy they charge you extra. Come on!

The food is fairly plain and not one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. The portions are fine but the food is somewhat bland.

Have tried May Garden a couple of times. Once for the regular menu and the second time Dim Sum. Both experiences were very pleasant. The food is good not a lot of salt used in the food. Will return given the chance.

I have had some bad chinese food in my life, however the food at this restaurant has to be the most tasteless, almost uneatable chinese food that I have ever been served. The egg rolls were filled with a hard to swallow mush, the Chow Mein consisted of bean sprouts 2 small pieces of chicken, onion & a few noodles... More

Hubby and I stopped in here yesterday for the first time. It is tucked away in a strip mall and is not really noticeable except for the sign by the road. It is bright and cheery inside except all the tables are covered with brown wrapping paper?? over the tablecloth. I can understand wanting to be clean but it is... More

The dish Ma Po Tofu is outstanding, and the Salt and Pepper Shrimp (which had a Buttered Popcorn flavour)was equally as delightful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been a huge fan of May Garden throughout the Halifax area. I moved away 4 years ago and upon every return visit I have may garden Egg Rolls on my list of eats. I attended the Bedford May Garden and ordered 5 Egg Rolls as Take-Out. Upon reaching my destination I launched into consuming those egg rolls. To... More

We visited on 2 Sept 2014. We ordered noodles with beef and curry chicken which was supposed to be spicy. The noodle dish was very oily and just tasted of soy sauce, no other spice. The curry was not an Asian curry, it was a yellow, corn starch and stock based sauce. The curry seasoning itself, obviously came from a... More
