Once we went to Lucky Garden we stopped looking for the best Chinese food in Augusta, Maine because we had found it. Very friendly people and I also recommend the Volcano Bowl (as long as you're not driving), so good!!

Highly recommend the vegetable fried rice and moo shoo; delicious! We usually get take out and it's always ready when promised. Staff is friendly. Fried dishes are not greasy.

My best friend took my daughter and I to this restaurant for the first time. We had the all you can eat buffet. The food was very good. It would have been somewhat better if the buffet was bigger. The price was very reasonable. The restaurant was very busy at lunch time but the owner made sure all the food... More

I have yet to be impressed with any of the vegetarian dishes, the titles do not properly depict the dishes. It's never what you'd expect, even when I asked a waiter if the family style tofu had fresh vegetables and was told yes, but actually came with a frozen peas and carrots blend and wasn't even hot, blech. The "spicy... More

I love this little restaurant. The food on the buffet stays consistent and always taste so good and for a good price. We have never had any issues with this place. Always feel welcomed when we are seated. This is our go to place for Chinese food.

Maine's best Chinese restaurant. Tonight's take out was stellar. Spring rolls, spicy pork in garlic sauce and spicy green beans were fantastic! I'm from Boston and there is not a lot of good restaurant options in central Maine but this is an exception and the owners are very, very nice and welcoming.

Rustic setting with views of the Kennebec and soft music make this a pleasant dining environment. Buffet was fairly small but all the food looked good, we ordered off the menu and ate here 3 times in 3 days, I Guess we liked it! Excellent beef chop suey! Excellent Kung Pao chicken, not the typical carrots, celery, peanuts that seem... More

This was my first visit to this hidden little jem in Hallowell Maine. I have always heard this was the best Chinese food around. I must agree with the rumors now that I have confirmed it with a yummie fresh lunch buffet. The atmosphere is calm and soothing with gentle music in the background. The restaurant area is very clean.... More

This food here is unbelievably good and in a city where great restaurants are lacking. Nice ambiance, pleasant staff who don't bother you too much, a bit pricey, but a nice afternoon or night out. Dishes are great, nice scenic view of the river. Definitely a place to go every month at least.
