This place is essentially what you would expect, and unless you are looking for a gourmet Chinese dining experience, you won't be let down. This place is about par with the Panda Express type places and fills a need nicely.

This is a little dive in South Lake Tahoe. Portions are more than smoke and food is tasty. It's a Panda Express type place where you can get 1, 2 or three entrees with either fried rice or chow mein. Very friendly staff. Good Orange Chicken, Black Pepper Chicken, Beef and Broccoli and Kung Pao.

Walked in and did not smell right. Also everything is premade and in a steam table. You order how many items you want and they through them in a Styrofoam container to eat out of. We wanted fresh food made to order so left. As I said not my cup of green tea.

We ordered delivery while staying at The Secrets Inn in Lake Tahoe. The food was hot and fresh and delivery was quick (FYI must order $25 for delivery but no delivery fee!). Their teriyaki chicken, coconut shrimp and spring rolls were delicious! Would order from again when in Tahoe and want to eat in!

The food was decent and cheap. However, the atmosphere was dirty, to say the least. The place felt 'sticky' with bits of food or grime everywhere; the floor, the other tables, the service counters. The longer I sat there eating the more grossed out I got. There were two youngish guys working while I was there. I'm guessing they weren't... More

Tried this chinese food because of the good review from tripadvisor. Can't beat the price for a combo meal. Typical menu served for a chinese fastfood chinese place like this but dont expect a lot of selections. The orange chicken is little bit spicy for my little ones.

It's fast and cheap! The food is great for the price. It cost 5.25 for two items and either rice or chow mein. I don't like their fried rice because I hate onions and they put big white onions in it so I always get the steamed rice. I usually buy two combos and feed 4 of us. They give... More

Currently there are only 2 Chinese restaurants that deliver in South Lake Tahoe, Jade Garden and Hong Kong, this is the better of the 2. The food is pretty good. If I'm looking for sit down or carry out Chinese I prefer Hunan Garden on Emerald Bay Road, but the food here at Jade Garden is good if you're hungry... More
