This is one of the better chinese restarants in San Antonio. The food is always great, the inside of the restarant is nice and the waitstaff is very attentive!

This resturasnt is one of the better Chinese resturants to go to. The food is good and so is the service. Their prices are more than reasonable. Sometimes there is a wait, but it is well worth it.

We always order in from Formosa. The food is always fresh and good. Everytime we pick up our food it is always ready for us to just walk in and walk out. The staff is very friendly.

If you want a fast food Chinese experience this is the place to go. From the way you are rushed to your seat to the way you are rushed thur your lunch. \r
-If you know your sushi, DO NOT GO HERE! The waitstaff is unaware of the sushi menu

I can never get my boyfriend to go with me; because its too far and little too expensive for him; which probably makes me crave it more that I normally would. But I like it! So do a lot of my friends do, too. I get the triple delight-chicken, beef and shrimp mix plate. Its hits the spot when you want better chinese food than some of the buffet or fast food Chinese restaurants out there. By the way-- I do like Chop Sticks and Fire Wok and Golden Wok, too; so that may or may not deter you from my preferences.

Pros: Yummy Msg-free Chinese Food; interesting ambience

Cons: My boyfriend thinks its overpriced-I can't go there all the time

A really great place to eat. I didnt feel slugish after eating here nor was I hungry 2 hours laters like at other chinese resteraunts. KUDOS on the MSG free!

If your a sushi junki sit at the sushi bar -those ppl will help you decide from whats hot and whats not.
I especially like the dragon rolls.

the service is fast- available as well are private partie areas with your own personal chef- HAH-YHA!
great menu selections and you can always share your meal w/ ur party-so for dinner you get have to get seperate portions everyone can have a taste of everything- if you prefer-that is.
Great lunch specials and not to mention great dinner specials from 5-6:30.

hope you visit Formosa Garden in SATX

My pepper steak meal was more than $9.00 and it didn't taste great although it was edible. They don't let you substitute the white rice that comes with the meals for fried rice. You gotta pay an extra $1.50. The service is slow...we waited 20 minutes for our order to be take and the place wasn't even near crowded. They also wouldn't let us split the check among the 4 people in our party...they said they just don't do that. I had to pay extra for soup too...and omg, don't. Yuck. You might as well put corn in a blender and drink it. This place is way too overpriced and the staff is not helpful or friendly. My opinion: just go to Peng's China Town on Ingram.

...because the waitress had no clue what anything on the menu was. She had no clue what the difference between sushi and sashimi was. If you wanted to have rice with your fish, she would've told you to get the opposite, which is basically fish-bait. My mother and I are almost sushi virgins; we were only introduced to it a year and a half ago...our type requires a bit of guidance. They wouldn't let my mother exchange her order, even though their employee is the one who screwed up. I then ordered Sesame Chicken so that I could share my sushi with her. The Sesame Chicken, I'll admit, was delicious, but the lack of service was a pain (we asked to have our tea refilled twice before someone finally accomplished the mild task about 15 minutes later, and the 'to-go' box took another 10 minutes). To make up for the plate we couldn't exchange, we didn't leave the horrid woman a tip. Jeez Louise, I miss Sushi Chi.

The best overall experience of the many sushi restaurants I visited. My father doesn't eat sushi, and he was able to order an excellent pu pu platter, since they also had a full asian menu. Granted, usually sushi served at a restaurant with a full menu of chinese and/or other cuisines spells trouble. But at Formosa, not only do they pull it off, but they do so with incredible taste.

I loved the extensive sushi menu that was just right in it's variety. Even Dad tried and liked several rolls.

Whether you are a true sushi lover that wants only some maki or nigiri, or just out for an excellent meal, this is the place to go. The top 2 sushi places in town, and the best overall experience for someone going out for sushi. Highest recommendations!

Have dined here a couple of times and really enjoyed the food. Not your typical chineese food in the strip center type of establishment. A nice setting for some really good food. Service has always been good, and we have enjoyed coming here numerous times. If only it were closer to the house....

The Scene
Formosa Garden has the sort of interior you find in hotel restaurants, but what it lacks in style it makes up for in substance. Families from Alamo Heights fill the spacious dining room, as well as date-night duos.…
