First time here (since 1998). We had to ask for the separate Sichuan menu from which we ordered the tea smoked duck, which was terrific. We had Sichuan style noodles, which were spicy but not crazy hot. The hot and sour soup was good, as was the chicken in black bean sauce. It was a busy Saturday night, quite full... More

Short of flying 13 hours to the other side of the world, Lai Lai is closer to try authentic cuisine for the Chinese new year. For our festive celebration, we wanted Peking Duck - and this comes as close as you are going to get this far from mainland. The duck was appropriately crispy but likely pre-cooked and didnt warm...

Went for my husband's birthday on a Monday. We were given the private room without asking for it; there were 4 of us in the family. I had creamed shrimp...wonderful...and many of the dishes eaten, like noodle dishes, were usual ones like Lo Mein, but exemplary in their preparation. I have read other reviews stating that the service was slow...not... More

Went for dinner with family Christmas Day. The restaurant was packed at 6:30, wait wasn't that long with reservation,we were seated in banquet room. Wasn't as nice a sitting in dining room. They seemed under staffed. Soup was cold. Told they don't serve fried noodles. Entrees were just ok. Duck was all fat. I would hope that they just couldn't... More

The Lai Lai Garden restaurant came highly recommended by a friend and we were pleasantly surprised. The food, atmosphere and service were all five star and should I be back in the area again, I would make sure I return to this restaurant. Ours was a party of three - one chose Mongolian lamb, one chose shimp with mixed vegetables... More

Been coming here for 18 years. Used to be the best fancy Chinese Restaurant around. This last visit was very disappointing. The wine tasted watered down. Server forgot soup for 93y/o MIL. Meat in Dim sum was old. Plating was not what it used to be. Portions smaller!

This place rocked! The sushi was outstanding..the service was friendly, helpful and gracious. THere were 6 of us and had a... More

Always a very good meal with the freshest sushi and unique rolls!! Staff is always friendly, although sometimes talking a bit too much, while you are trying to have a quiet dinner. Full liquor license is a big plus and the owner super nice!!

Soup, spring roll, main course (a little smaller than normal dinner size), dessert, tea or coffee is $13.95 plus tax and tip. YOU MUST ORDER BEFORE 6:00 PM To get all these courses. For example: Jumbo Honey Walnut Shrimp (You get 5 large shrimp instead of 8 large shrimp). Just an FYI for those who are looking for a bargain.

Retuning twice since 2015 once dining in at the behest of friends and once takeout in a pinch. This is a lovely venue with ample parking serving the worse Chinese/American food I have EVER had. Service is not good and the food is worse. One could choose almost any Chinese restaurant anywhere and get food as good or better. To... More
