These people are obviously not going to 3/3/2012

These people are obviously not going to the same restaurant as I am. The food is great and I happen to be Chinese. I recently moved into the Woodstock area and happen upon this little restaurant and they really make good dishes especially General Chicken which is my favorite and the Lo mein is define. The restaurant gone through some changes and upgrades the booths and hired a wonderful new waitress name Mimi which makes the place even better more

10 years of Wong's 10/4/2011

Here's the deal. Wong's Garden, is a taste like no other. Depending on they day or the cook. Their food, especially since I'm pregnant, would be amazing. The service, is absolutely dreadful. They just want you to eat and get out. Years ago, this wasn't the case. So what went wrong? Or Wong? I would go annually with my boyfriend and our daughter, and it used to be fine. No rush, great food, good service and we'd leave full. Lately, None of the above. Food is always the same, except for when you order it a certain way, for example, no peppers. It looks as though someone had chopped up an animal, fried it, and put it on the plate. Not the tender love and care in their food that I remember. Now, we go in, and we're rushed. I ask for an extra plate EACH and EVERY TIME we go there, and I get attitude from the waitress. It's quite clear my daughter can eat. She's huge! She looks like no infant. People have mistaken her for a four year old. My parents, didn't believe me. They went, and they swear they're never going back. They went in at nine, and they close at 10. They were rushed, and my father, being the opinionated person he is, wouldn't rush through his dinner. GOOD FOR YOU! Since then, I haven't eaten there since. I had, tried to go there, and give another chance at the food I once loved and craved. I went in, looked at the menu. I asked, may I substitute this Sweet and sour chicken, with Mandarin Chicken. No. Why is this an issue? Because one, I did that EVERY time I went there, and that was at least once every week. And two, they were the same price. I kept asking in case she maybe didn't understand my question, and I doubt she did. She said no two fried items. I said, ok thank you. Dropped the menu back in the basket, and I left. Halfway across the street towards Papa Murphey's I hear ""Mam! Mam!"" But I had other things on my mind. Feeding my family. I went into Papa Murphey's, and got food their, with change leftover, as I wouldn't have gotten any with going to Wong's Garden. What went wrong Wong??? more

Not good 1/1/2010

Had takeout of: potstickers, general tsaos chicken, broccoli and pork, and special fried rice with beef, chicken, and shrimp. Potstickers were tough, white on the bottom with saute marks, and dark grey on top. Ok flavor but seemed like they were frozen at one point. General Tsaos chicken: too much breading, weird flavor, only other visible ingredient were the red chilis. Broccoli and Pork: girlfriend had it, hated it. I wouldn't go near it. Fried rice: I kind of liked it. It was a good mix of ingredients although the carrots and peas were off. The beef was good, the shrimp were good, and the chicken seemed alright. My girlfriend and I ate about half our fill, gave up, and threw it down the garbage disposal. Such was our adventure. We prefer sungari pearl and sungari. We have also enjoyed eating at Golden Horse in chinatown. Pros: Special fried rice is ok, service was great Cons: everything else we ate more

Great food! Best price in town! 12/3/2009

I have been going to Wong's Garden for over 10 years, and have never had a bad experience...The food is average chinese food but for $5-6 at lunch its good food. Those who want higher quality food, go elswhere but be ready to spend a lot more. This is a family restaurant not a food experts restaurant and I think that is why some of the other reviews are mislead. You pay for what you get, and for me its worth it and it delicious! Pros: Good Food, nice price, quick! more

BEST CHINESE FOOD IN THE CITY! 9/19/2009

THe other reviews on here must be talking about a different restaurant because wong is a common name in portland. But the Wong's Garden I love has the best tasting chinese food ever. You have to dine in to experience the greatness of Wong's. I've gotten take out before which is still good but when the food has just come out of the kitchen and not closed up in a box the food tastes even better. This is my favorite of restaurant and my must have is the green bean with beef, it's cooked with black bean sauce which is just the best. I love Wong's fried rice it has beef, chicken and shrimp in it. Walnut shrimp has big piece of shrimp with this sauce and roasted walnut on top it and it's just amazing and General chicken is the best dish. It's chicken fried and they put some sort of sauce in it and you have plenty of left overs for the next day. They really give you your moneys worth You have to go there try this dishes and you tell me if it's not the great place I say. Pros: THe price, The portions, The food, and the owner Cons: NOTHING more

Really Bad 8/9/2009

This is just bad food. Vegetables are over cooked and everything tastes like old oil. Go to Hoho's. Cons: They don't know how to cook. more

Avoid at all cost! 2/17/2009

I mistakenly ignored the other negative reviews and tried Wongs for the first time today. Horrible, horrible food. The Kung Pao chicken was completely flavorless and filled with odd, mushy vegetables. The ""egg rolls"" are truly bizarre - like a pork meatloaf wrapped in phyllo and deep fried. The Lo Mein was so bad it went straight into the garbage after one bite. Pros: Great place to take your enemies Cons: Nausea, vomitting, hot flashes, abdominal pain more

It is what it is, good and cheap 9/28/2008

Wongs is a great fricking deal, let's get that out of the way. Those elitist reviewers and food snobs can keep their swanky restaurants, I want something filling, good, and fast. I don't give a sh*t about about what the carpet looks like. Some dishes are better than others (orange chicken, egg rolls), but you are going to get that at every restaurant. Wongs doesn't pretend to be super authentic Chinese down to the secret ingredients. They keep it real and give us good, cheap, chinese. more

Worst Chinese EVER. Avoid going at all costs. 8/13/2008

OK anyone saying they like Wong's Garden food has no idea what good food tastes like and has no clue about the world around them. They are probably all in their 40's or older who have lived in the same neighborhood their whole lives and never tasted any food outside of Woodstock (which by the way has plenty of other good restaurants) My parents took me there once and my mom found gum in her food. The last time I went there I thought I would give it another shot and I found a couple of hairs in my food and my hair is NOT black. The food is mushy and there is a total lack of customer service. All you old timers you just keep going there with your bad taste because then at least YOU will keep them in business, the rest of us with good taste and who are not homophobic will eat somewhere with more class. more

Great value for the price 6/5/2008

My family and I went to Wong's last night, and I was pleasantly surprised! I am normally not a huge fan of Chinese food--as most of it tends to be on the greasy side. The food here was not overly greasy, the flavors fantastic, and the portions huge! We got the szechuan family style option, and received 4 courses for only 10.95 a piece. There was enough food for 4 people! I can't wait to have my leftovers for lunch today. A gem hidden in the Woodstock neighborhood! Pros: Food, Portions, Price Cons: Definitely not a place for a romantic dinner. more

I love it! 8/12/2007

I love Wong's Garden. I've been going there since I was 3 and the food and service is always exceptional. While it is a rather Americanized version of chinese food, I still love it. I like it more than traditional chinese food...maybe because it's the only chinese food I ever had growing up..who knows? Pros: Lots of parking, Great Service, Friendly Staff, wonderful hamburgers, great tasting american style chinese food, great for families. Cons: American chinese food, not a great ambience. more

You've got to be kidding me. 5/18/2007

All these raving reviews, I'm guessing are from long time customers? Anyways, my partner and I have been going here for about 3 years (since we moved to the Woodstock area) just because it's close and cheap. We get the same thing every time: Pork fried rice and Pork foo young... why? Because everything else tastes better when made by Safeway right across the street. It's Americanized Chinese to the point that it's really just American food prepared by Chinese people. I also have to say that THIS RESTRAUNT IS NOT GAY FRIENDLY. Two other gay couples besides us have had horrible experiences when they brought their partners. On one occasion our server actually threw our teapot at us, which SPILLED! I've been a waitress for over 4 years and I can't even being to tell you the levels of apologies I would spout if I had spilled hot tea on a customer -- but not her! She actually got mad at us and left us with extra napkins to clean up what she very clearly deemed to be our fault (even though neither one of us even had the opportunity to TOUCH the tea before it rolled over!!). The food is OK, but nothing special (I?m ? Chinese, been to China and eaten food, so I think I?m a good labrat who?s been around the pen) it is very Americanized aka no salt+pepper prawns, no fun noodles with gravy, yeah. Pros: cheap, close-in, fast, fried rice Cons: Americanized Chinese, homophobic, bland dishes more

Misleading 5/14/2007

Wong's Garden does have excellent food, however its in a dingy little building with limited space. Pros: Great Food Cons: That ""feeling"" all around in the air more

Best Chinese in Portland! 9/7/2006

The BEST Chinese ever!! I have been eating Wong's Garden for 13 years. The owner is always friendly, as is the staff. I LOVE the Sesame Chicken, Almond Chicken, Singapore Chow Mein and Wong's Garden Lo Mein. I highly recommended this to a friend and he isn't a big Chinese food fan, he is now hooked!! The portions are huge and make a great lunch for later. Woodstock's best kept secret is Wong's Garden!!! Pros: The best Chinese for the money! Cons: It can be crowded... but well worth the wait. more

User review by michelleprincesslee 3/17/2006

I have been going here for years.. the service is great.. the people are very friendly.. they remember you... they know what you like.. they are always giving you free dishes.. it is a great place to go that is casual.. easy to get to and great food. There take out portions are just as big as the dine in portions.... now that I have kids they love going here as well... they can accomodate for big groups even though at first appearance it does not seem so.. they will make room for everyone and you will feel very welcome! Pros: Friendly, Fast, Great Food Cons: Can get crowded more

Most Excellent Service and Food 6/7/2004

I have been going to Wongs Garden since I was 6 Years old. The owner whose name is betty has known me since. She always is very pleaseant, i always get a hug, and the fastest service i have ever recieved. The food is excellent and quite cheap as well. If the combos dont work for you, if you would like to subsitute that is no problem, they will do it for you. Great service, highly recommended. Pros: Inexpensive, Excellent Customer sv, Fast and timely servi Cons: , gets crowded more

I love Wong's Garden! 3/16/2004

I started eating at Wong's Garden when I was 15, back in 1991. Thirteen years later, it is still my favorite place for Chinese food. Betty, the owner always greets me and asks about how I am doing and also about my mom. the food is always fresh and very flavorful. My favorite appetizer is the pot stickers. I will not order them anywhere else, they can't measure up. They come with this wonderful sauce that I love to add to the white rice as well. They are a must try! Portions are always enormous, so you'll leftovers for lunch the next day.The prices are also so reasonable that I always have change back from a twenty, even after leaving a generous tip for the curtious waitress. I 'm going again at the end of this month, can't wait! Pros: food quility, prices, customer service Cons: , doesn't deliver more

Great service, fresh food! 6/13/2003

I don't know where the other reviewer was eating at, but I know it wasn't the Wong's that I ate at last night. The green beans were fresh, but the Chow Fun, and Hot & Sour soup were as well. The service was excellent, the nice asian lady was courteous, quick, and always had a smile. I've had take out from Wong's too and it's just as good, especially if you are eating it in front of a t.v.! Pros: Excellent, Fresh Food, Good parking, Attentive Service Cons: None that I can see! more
