This a classic old fashion Chinese Food restaurant, beautiful décor, great service, and delicious food. Takes me back to the 1970's type of restaurant. Their plates are always enough to share.

Always a treat to go to the China Garden in downtown Houston. Tucked away on the East side, you can always count on the food and service to be excellent.

We often eat here when attending the Toyota Center. Great food in a family owned business. My idea of the type of business to support!

Well prepared Shanghai style food. A very extensive menu and great lunch specials. The fried dumplings are really sauteed wontons, tender and delicious. The service is friendly as well.
