Let's just say I have the menu memorized and have the number on my cellular speed dial...\r
This restaurant has been a family favorite for years. When we eat Oriental Gardens, we know that we will always receive a hot, delicious, and fresh meal. The vegetables are always crisp, fresh, and plentiful. The meats are always top quality, without chewy pieces or fat. The sauce choices are all delicious, and the vegetable combinations with different platters are perfect. The waitstaff is very friendly and the food is brought out quickly.\r
Some of my favorite dishes include:\r
-HOT & SOUR SOUP (order the large for $5, serves ~4 people)\r
-chicken and green beans\r
-spicy tangy chicken/beef/or tofu\r
-chicken and black bean sauce\r
On average, my family of 4 spends about $25 total on our meal. We order a large hot & sour soup ($5) and two main entrees ($7-$12), and we still take home a doggie bag! If you go for a lunch special before 4:30pm, you'll get an egg roll, soup, and a huge helping of your entree and rice, all for around $6/person! A lunch special can EASILY be shared between two people!\r
Pros: quick service, fresh veggies, quality meats, delicious sauces, friendly staff...
Cons: my fortune cookie messages never give me winning numbers...
