Great Chinese food, menu and drink. Authentic Hong Kong style cuisine in a family atmosphere. Great location in Historic Locke. While there its a must to walk thru this great little town.

The outside of the building is rather shabby, like most buildings in Locke, probably because of its status on the historical register. Inside is old, but brightly decorated. Food was incredibly reasonable in price and delicious!

Nestled directly above the ancient village of Locke, settled by... More

There are only two places to eat in Locke, and of course, I tried both. I can happily report that I would detour back to Locke if just to eat at either one. My first stop was Locke Garden, the sole Chinese restaurant. When I walked in, I was surprised to find a restaurant half-full on a weekday in this... More

After visiting with a customer, I took a walk through downtown Locke and stopped here for lunch. There was no one else in the restaurant during the lunch hour and the place seemed to be manned by a single person who seated me, waited on me and then cooked my meal. The food was good, but it was pretty pricey... More

Interestingly this is an authentic-operating Chinese restaurant in the Historical Rural Chinese Settlement of Locke, California. It is operated by a wonderful Chinese couple, who originated from China and their two children. The restaurant is located in one of the many historical wooden buildings which make up the historical settlement. It definitely provides its patrons a glimpse into Locke's past.... More
