I only ordered an appetizer, cold sesame noodles, just to try it out and just based on that I'd never try anything else. The funny thing about restaurants it seems to me is the worse the food is the more bang for the buck you get. I mean this was an appetizer I guess to feed familiy of 4 or 6 maybe? I ate few bites and threw it out . It was drenched in too heavy a sauce, it was disgusting, then I found this tiny piece of dark colored something and I couldn't even identify it. I mean cold noodles is usually nothing but noodles so what would a piece of mushroom or meat or god knows what be doing in there? There were some bean sprouts on too too, fine, but they were mostly soggy from also being drenched in the nasty sauce. I would never go back here again. I continue my quest to find one decent Chinese restaurant in the area.

The food here ranges from mediocre to good. There was no one dish I considered excellent. My wife and I would go to this place for lunch because the service was good and the price was right ($15 with tip for two).

My experience with their delivery last night, though, has soured me on Empire Garden, and I won't be eating there again. I ordered two main dishes and two appetizers, and one of the dishes was delivered wrong. When I called to ask for a replacement, the woman who answered was stridently nasty right from the get-go, blamed me for the mix-up, and ultimately hung up on me (I did not yell at her).

They obviously are not interested in retaining my business, so I will oblige them.

This resturant although small has great service both for sit down and take-out! All dishes can be made to order with friendly service. Their steamed veggies are great!

This is a sitdown Chinese restaurant that offers lunch plates during the week. Just pick from a few dozen choices from an easy menu for $5-$6 and you get soup along with your lunch. Service is pretty fast, too.
Haven't tried it for dinner, but I figure it's about as good.

PROS: Easy lunch menu
CONS: None really
