Have ate Chinese food all over the country and this still the best I have ever had. Great options and they still keep it authentic. It's a little higher prices for the Belle Fourche area but definitely worth it. The staff is very friendly also. Nice family run business!

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever had! Cooked hot and fresh with great service! I even forgot my debit card and realized it an hour later, they had saved it in an envelope for me when I returned. Was very grateful!!!!

This is hands down the best made to order chinese good in the northern hills. What a hidden gem! Lunch specials are priced super reasonable and everything is made fresh. So so so good. Highly recommended.

We chose this restaurant after reviewing the best restaurants in this location. We chose the daily special which included fried rice and a selection of three different dishes. Soup was included with a spring roll. The meal was a reasonable size, well cooked and value for money. Not disappointed. Don't let outside appearance put you off. Would highly recommend to... More

Not an inviting atmosphere. Greeting was robotic. No smiles. Food was rather poor quality. Not a lace I would go again not recommend to friends.

I am sorry you did not find the New China Garden to your liking. Perhaps buffet style is more what you were seeking? Most people find the restaurant to be a serene place to meet with friends and family and enjoy their meal. The younger members of the family have been taught to be respectful of the guests and are...

Fresh, well prepared food - made to order for every table. Very reasonable prices, and caliber of food you can get in much larger cities. Looks a little sketchy from outside but well worth it!!

This little gem of a restaurant is easy to miss on the main highway through town. Easy parking, even for our RV trailer. Started with potstickers, and they were as good as you get in major restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area. The entrées were delicious, good crisp vegetables, the sauces were terrific. Just a little light on the... More

This little gem is right on Highway 85 with parking at either end of the block so I can see how it would be easy to miss but you would regret missing out! All dishes are made to order so if you wish more protein, be sure to order extra meat for your dish! Thank you for your kind words... More
