Today a group of friends and I had lunch at Chinese Garden, I've eaten here on and off since 1999. Something has changed, I almost asked if they had changed owners. Everyone's food tasted different from before, and by different I meant not good! I only had a few bites of mine, the sweet and sour pork tasted "off". The rice was not very fresh. I had so much food left on my plate I was asked three times if I wanted a to go box and I said no! We won't be going back, the food is not worth it any longer, it's too bad because this area does not have many really good oriental places to eat such as Chico or Roseville or Sacramento.
Tell me what business argues with the customer when the order is wrong NONE THAT I EVER BEEN TOO I CANT BELIEVE IT AND THEN I WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE TO ORDER WHAT I DIDN'T GET AND KEEP THE FOOD I DIDN'T WANT THEY ARE RUDE AND I'M GOING TO LET EVERYONE I KNOW KNOW IT I FEEL THEY ARE RACIST BECAUSE THEY DIDNT ARGUE ABOUT ME BRING IT BACK UNTIL I GOT THERE I HAVE NEVER WROTE A REVIEW BEFORE BUT I AM SO ANGRY AND SHOCKED UNREAL
Love this place, So good and you get so much!
I found carpet beetles in my food. Took it was and the chef came out and smashed the bug and said "see look! No bugs in your food!" Wrote really????? Yea maybe not anymore bc u just smashed it with it with your fingers that your cooking or food with! Awful service I or my family will never go again.
Very good food and quick delivery. They offer coupons and free delivery upon a certain range. I didn't mind paying $2.00 for delivery. I would;'ve paid $10.00 for as good and quality the food was.
Have eaten here approx a dozen times over the past 10 yrs. Food is 'ok' but very overpriced for what you receive. Kind of a dive - needs to REALLY be cleaned. Has always and continues to advertise DELIVERY but they do not & never have. I noticed they're quick to interrupt people while ordering (the female servers-family run.) This has been a reoccuring problem. When ordering Dinner for 3, 4, or 5-The amount of portions you receive on serving dishes (or take out boxes) is exactly the same yet you're paying a much higher rate as these meals are 'Family Style.' I guess things would be so disappointing if they were more polite and their dish portions reflected what people were ordering... if people need enough rice, chow mein, broc beef, sweet/sour pork, etc... for 3-4+ ppl they need to order 2 separate orders of each dish otherwise you're paying a lot more $ but receiving exactly the same amount of food. We enjoy great food & have no problem paying a premium for it which includes good service & a clean environment. This location may be iconic in this area and I genuinely wish there were more places that were - but just because the door has stayed open over time doesn't mean standards do not apply. Just making some very realistic modifications could change the way a lot of people feel about visiting. I think everyone would really like to see family run businesses in our community thrive... just give a little back.
