I've been there at least four times and it has always been very good. The menu is vast but I really love the fried wontons, from the appetizer menu as I recall. This is not a buffet.

A third generation has turned a popular but dated Cantonese village restaurant into a hip Asian fusion bistro with a tasteful urban vibe and expanded menu. My partner ordered Szechuan chicken while I had hibachi salmon. Both were well prepared and tasty. There were many...More

Order off the menu, it's not the same food on the buffet. The menu food is the best Chinese food in the area. The wonton soup is the best I have ever had.

Dragon Gardens is one of the few Chinese restaurants around that is still a real restaurant. They do have a buffet but you can also order off their extensive menu. Takeout is also available. The best quality Chinese food in our area by far.
