Emerald Garden was recommended to us by a friend who lives locally. It is one of the finest Chinese restaurants I have encountered anywhere. The service is courteous and efficient, and the cuisine is first rate. It is also very reasonable. Our party cost $140.00 for seven adults, all inclusive. Easily accessible by Calgary Transit bus direct, or by LRT... More

The food and service was wonderful. We decided to order drinks. There was a long list of different liquors you can order. We each ordered a drink and they did not have either in stock. One Whisky and one Rum in the restaurant when they list five of each on the menu. I did hear other people being told other... More

Me and a buddy ordered takeout and to our surprise our orders of lemon chicken and ginger chicken had no rice with it, where as majority Chinese restaurants add a serving of rice with these meals. Also no forks, spoons or knives were given alongside our order. However, the food did taste amazing. The flavours were rich and had a... More

The best Chinese food I have had in a very long time. The flavors were fresh, the meat was flavorful and tender. The delivery person was so friendly. Great job Emerald.

This was our first visit - and we left quite impressed. The service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Wish other restaurants were as similar! Our dishes included 2 of the daily specials, and they all were excellent. The restaurant is clean, well lit and comfortable. An excellent choice for a Tuesday evening!

Yet another delicious lunch in great atmosphere with wonderful friends. One of the marks of a well-run restaurant is the state of the rest rooms, and the Emerald's are SPOTLESS. They're ALWAYS spotless. Good sign! Lunch special menu allows for many, many combinations to suit all kinds of tastes; that said, they downplay the superspicy stuff, though you can zot... More

One of our family & friends' favourites for nearly two decades, the Emerald Gardens continues to serve outstanding Chinese dishes in a friendly inviting atmosphere. There is free parking behind the restaurant, but it fills up fast so go early or late to avoid hunting for scarce street parking. The Hot & Sour & Wor Won soups are large enough... More

The place does not look like much from the highway, but was recommended by our hotel. The decor is simple and the waitress essentially ordered for us (maybe she thought Americans were unfamiliar with Chinese food, not sure!). We got two specials, one which was prawns with asparagus and the other a peppercorn chicken. They were phenomenal. We eat a... More

Have been here a few times and keeps getting better. Very high quality. Excellent and very personal service. One of our party has gluten issues and they will make everything fresh on request with corn starch instead of flour.
