Ordered sesame chicken and tangerine chicken. When delivered we could not tell the difference visually on the plate. Quantity was adequate with crispy coating but lacked the presence of any vegetables. ...only hard citrus pieces. Initially service was good but waiter disappeared with no table appearance until end of meal when we realized we had never been served tea....then we... More

I was very disappointed in the the taste of the food because it had no flavor and was very bland. The beef teriyaki just tasted like beef with no hint of teriyaki flavor. General Tso's chicken was slightly better with very little flavor however some of the pieces of chicken were pink inside. The place was clean and the service... More

For $18.50 I got a portion that in no way would be considered a dinner portion, add to that....nothing....it didn't come with fried rice, no soup, no crispy noodles, not even tea! Food was not good. What a rip off!!

Two couples went, we thought food was mostly average. Other couple loved it. So, try for yourself. Service was very good, but a little more on the casual side than we usually prefer.

We've always enjoyed the service and food here, but we're very disappointed on this last visit when we were charged $8.95 for a side of snow peas! They charged us the same price as the Snow Peas & Shrimp lunch, which includes sides/soup. If we would have known, we would have ordered the lunch and gotten so much more. When... More

Was in a hurry to get to a movie. Service was very fast, upon request. Ordered cashew and chicken and it tasted very fresh and delicious.

No, not all Chinese food is the same....Zen garden employs a 'real' chef who knows what he's doing and you can taste it for yourself. Nothing greasy, nothing sticky. Everything is fresh and inviting. Flavors are bursting, as they should be. Stand by dishes like Gen Tso Chicken is lightly breaded and delicious. Steamed vegetables without all the sauce is... More

I've heard great things about this place. They were right! They had rice cakes! (The Chinese rice cake, not Quaker Oats air food) Very large portions and large dining area with separate bar. Outdoor seating available too.

The Asian food was good for the area. The service was excellent. We sat on the glassed enclosed porch which provided a great view.
