Always fantastic! worth the drive to eat there. They have the best hot and sour soup. It is a clean family run business. Always a good choice.

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever had! Cooked hot and fresh with great service! I even forgot my debit card and realized it an hour later, they had saved it in an envelope for me when I returned. Was very grateful!!!!

This is hands down the best made to order chinese good in the northern hills. What a hidden gem! Lunch specials are priced super reasonable and everything is made fresh. So so so good. Highly recommended.

We chose this restaurant after reviewing the best restaurants in this location. We chose the daily special which included fried rice and a selection of three different dishes. Soup was included with a spring roll. The meal was a reasonable size, well cooked and value for money. Not disappointed. Don't let outside appearance put you off. Would highly recommend to... More

Our downtown area is quite historic and you would be amazed what awaits inside many of the buildings! Walking through the doors of New China Garden elevates the mood for a great meal. We are glad you chose us through the reviews and were pleased with your selection. Thank you for dining with us! More

Not an inviting atmosphere. Greeting was robotic. No smiles. Food was rather poor quality. Not a lace I would go again not recommend to friends.

I am sorry you did not find the New China Garden to your liking. Perhaps buffet style is more what you were seeking? Most people find the restaurant to be a serene place to meet with friends and family and enjoy their meal. The younger members of the family have been taught to be respectful of the guests and are...

Fresh, well prepared food - made to order for every table. Very reasonable prices, and caliber of food you can get in much larger cities. Looks a little sketchy from outside but well worth it!!

Once inside, you know you are in for a good meal and beautiful atmosphere! The wainscoting is real bamboo and the restaurant has a simple yet beautiful décor. Each meal IS made to order with spices adjusted accordingly. Thank you for your kind words and we hope you will be back! More

This little gem of a restaurant is easy to miss on the main highway through town. Easy parking, even for our RV trailer. Started with potstickers, and they were as good as you get in major restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area. The entrées were delicious, good crisp vegetables, the sauces were terrific. Just a little light on the... More

This little gem is right on Highway 85 with parking at either end of the block so I can see how it would be easy to miss but you would regret missing out! All dishes are made to order so if you wish more protein, be sure to order extra meat for your dish! Thank you for your kind words... More

This is the quintessential family owned restaurant. This takes Chinese style food to a home level. Parents in the kitchen, the kids serve, the food is amazing. This isn't your buffet trash, each plate is made to order and great! best Chinese for MILES UPON MILES!

This IS the quintessential family owned restaurant! The New China Garden does not serve a buffet as they wish each dish to be made to order. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your patronage! More
