The senior group I was with ate here kind of at the last minute since we found out only a day or to before that the Chinese place we planned on eating had closed. It's a small restaurant, but had plenty of room for our group of about 20 plus their regular customers. They have lunch specials served with rice,... More

The egg foo young was a little bland but the General Tso's made up for it. The fried rice was fluffy and tasty.

After a small Sunday drive to southern Indiana we came home and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and all the reviews was great and I'm here to tell you they was correct. We had the hot and sour soup and find it the best we ever had. The lunch special was really good. The rice perfectly cooked and the... More

Can pretty much tell them what you want and they will make it for you. Years upon years of the same ownership and commitment to excellence with great value and portions. Worlds best hot and sour soup. Don't worry about the tired look of the place it's clean and proper here. One of few Chinese gems left.

Not too long after we moved to Indianapolis ( 2007) some friends took us to China Garden with their family. We enjoyed it back then! We go by the corner where the restaurant is located often, but is slightly back off of the street. So you have to look to find it. Fast forward to 2016, on a recent night... More

I don't like using the term excellent, it seems to be so over used, but this place deserves that and more. Nothing fancy to look at but some of the best Chinese food you will ever put into your mouth. Family owned and the food and service shows this fact. My wife and I found this place last December and... More

This is a family-run place that has been in business for a long time, The decor is Asian but very simple, while the food is prepared and served quite elegantly. The traditional Asian-American dishes are all very, very good, and the service is excellent.

First came here with our small kids 25 years ago. Place looks same inside with a lot of wear and tear. Don't let decor turn you off. There are very few places to get good Chinese food left in the South Indianapolis Area. Some of the best food is here. Nothing fancy but large portions and great taste. Great friendly... More

I like China Garden. They are not open on Mondays. The food is good. My favorite is the sweet and sour chicken. They have vegetables and really good. I like their customer service, because you feel like you are going to be apart of a family.

We've always ordered take-out from China Garden even though they have a nice dining room. It had been awhile since our last visit as we tried a few other Chinese restaurants that are closer to our home. We've realized it is well worth the extra few minutes of travel time as the food has always been great. The owners are... More
