Honestly the last few times I've been there haven't been very good. We always get the Hong Kong chicken dish & share it as it's a pretty decent size, but last few times chicken has been rubbery & had to have server take it back to kitchen to get another order which is annoying. Also their prices have gone up... More

My friend and I go here often. We sit at the bar and have the Pineapple Dragontini and Egg Rolls. Delish!

This restaurant is as consistent as McDonalds. It is the best Chinese restaurant around. No matter what you order you will not be disappointed. Don't particularly care for the new renovation inside, as the former decor had more ambiance.

the food was okay but the room had zero ambience. Went there on a Saturday night with no reservation and were seated immediately. We were expecting a nicer experience after the renovations we completed. Still a good place for take outs

The only reason we went back and tried Plum Garden again is because we had a gift certificate from Christmas. We sat at the bar...the bartender was busy talking to one of her co-workers at the end of the bar and didn't even acknowledge that we had sat down! Things only got worse from there! (I knew we should have... More

My sister and I ordered several dishes for take out. We were not at all impressed with the food. I remember the Plum Garden being the best Chinese restaurant in town. I'm sorry to say that's not the case anymore. The food was all bland and they didn't get my simple 3item order right. I will not be ordering from... More

I have never stepped foot inside the restaurant, however, I've eaten their orange chicken, fried rice, and egg rolls at every County Fair and saufenspeil Johnsburg has and the food is excellent. My whole family loves the food. I hope to visit the restaurant this year!

I love this place for their Chinese! My family and friends have been coming here since the place opened! We're very well known for coming as we would come for many many birthday celebrations and order the takeout for our large parties. Thank you for staying yummy and consistent! Hong Kong Chicken isn't like anything you've ever tasted before! Pure... More

Went with my fiance' because she was always talking about going, but had never made it... Started with drinks VERY GOOD Mai Tai and Martinis... Our server was very polite and perky, we were seated quickly... Started with eggrolls which were big, but lots of cabbage not much of anything else and 3 bucks for 1 seemed a bit much!!!... More
