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.

We get take out a lot from here the food really is amazing but each dish is $15-$20 so if you want a bunch of food to share the price gets up there very quickly!

I had the fried rice and the mango chicken. I thought the chicken had a lot of poorer quality meat in it, tendons and cartilage. The food was a bit bland. It needs more spices. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either.
