A Nice place for groups or family to get large meals. Probably took no longer than 5 min to be served. Very affordable. There is a coffee maker with a hot pot of tea. Friendly atmosphere.

I love eating at China Garden. The food portions are huge and food comes piping hot. You will need to put your order in at the counter and seat yourself unless you call-in a "to go" order.

It is the only Chinese place in town, so if you like Chinese food it is your only option. Overall, it has good food & service, but wish it was more buffet style.

Have been going to this Chinese restaurant for over 17yrs. It has always been great food, good service and most of all reasonable prices. What more can you ask for, right? Our favorites are the broccoli with beef or chicken and the sweet and sour chicken. Egg rolls are always crispy and fresh. If you like Chinese cuisine you will... More

The quest for a good restaurant in Rensselaer is tough. We stopped here only because it was about the only restaurant that was open at 7:30 in the evening. It was very clean and the food was very good. The owners were very nice and we were impressed. Will definitely go here again.

This restaurant is affordable, convenient, and a good place for us to eat. We are seniors, and appreciate having them nearby.
