First Review by sophiefrenchfry

craving fulfilled - Edit

I am so glad a gem like this is so close to home. I called and inquired about vegan options and the owner answered and was very excited and offered to surprise me with a couple vegan options. I got fried dumplings with onions and veggies inside, fried vegetable rice and vegetables and tofu. It was soooo delicious. The owner was so kind and told me she has been vegetarian herself for 30 years and that they hold a vegan support group every other Monday evening! If youre a fan of chinese food or having a craving I definitely recommend stopping by!

Delicious custom-made meal - Edit

China Garden looks like an ordinary Chinese restaurant from the outside, but it is worth giving it a chance. The owner, Christine, is vegetarian. She offered to cook us an authentic meal if we had an open mind and just let her choose some things for us. None of the things she cooked are on the menu, and everything was delicious! We ate scallion pancakes with homemade ginger sauce, green beans and tofu, and baby bok choy with egg plant. Usually, we have to drive to Portland for food this good. We have been other times when the owner is not there cooking, and the food is still good. Only the menu items are available, however, the staff are sensitive to vegans and vegetarians. They will usually ask if you are vegan or vegetarian and add extra tofu or make a menu item special in some way if you let them know your dietary preferences.

Pros: Great food - custom orders, Owner is vegetarian

Cons: Sometimes a little busy
