Enjoyed the dinner for 6. Food was hot and fresh and very well presented. We were all very satisfied with the meal, service and friendliness of the restaurant. Dinner was prepared in 20 minutes. Everyone loved the food. Definitely will be going there again for future food.

Sorry to say this is not very good. They don't have milk for coffee, no drink menus, not very accomadating. If you have a problem with your order they take offence. It taste awful and with limited hours you feel like you are rushed to eat and get out. They had warm beer and wine. Didn't want to try any... More

I've tried this spot 3 or 4 times giving them the benefit of the doubt that the next time would be better. They advertise they do special Thai dishes but all they ever have are spring rolls. The second time I went in I had ordered a combo plate for take out, got there a little early and the Lady... More

By far my favourite Chinese food restaurant. We know the owners very well and they are great people and the food is great.

Completely shocked and appalled by the take out order 12 September - on our elopement wedding night to boot. Everything was burnt and dried to a crisp. Every indication that it had it had been under a heat lamp for hours - probably pulled off a buffet and tossed in the bag without the slightest concern for quality. Shameful. Absolutely... More

I'm 27 years old and I've lived in town my entire life. The Lido Gardens has been here since before I can remember, and has stood the test of time while other restaurants in the area change owners and close down every year. Tom is a spectacular chef, and his attitude towards cooking is exemplary. Most people who work in... More

One of the last places to get Chinese food in town. We hadn't been here for awhile so decided to give it a try. Very friendly waitress. Food was better than expected and had a nice meal.

Seriously, the best portion, price & taste! Get the pad Thai with chicken & bean sprouts and you will not be disappointed!

Food was re-heated. Tasted old. You do get a lot of food for your buck but it's not worth my buck. There was no one in the restaurant and now I know why. Would not recommend. The staff however were really nice

Went here at the very start of dinner buffet (4:30) the food was all hot and mostly fresh but is so average its hard to describe. Very plain ordinary Chinese buffet style food. The sweet and sour and plum sauces are very very sweet and goopy. Again this food is not BAD I but it also isn't good as in... More
