My daughter decided she wanted Chinese tonight. So, we thought about where to go. There are some obvious places in Bloomington/Normal, but I've been to those. None were appealing to us. Then, we Google searched and found Lucky Garden. My daughter said she'd like to try it. I read the reviews, and all were good. So we went. First impression... More

It wasn't crowded when I went. The staff was courteous and the service was unhurried. I had a couple of sushi rolls: The Bloomington Roll and the Manhattan Roll. Both were pretty good. I'd eat there again.

Nothing fancy, just good, fast, friendly sushi. I've sat at the bar twice now and had a great experience. I would definitely lean towards the chef recommendations.

We recently returned to Lucky Garden and it did not disappoint. We ordered a few sushi dishes and our usual Walnut Shrimp. This dish is outstanding and well portioned, easily split.

This is my go-to spot for sushi or chinese food. The service is great and very prompt. The sushi tastes very fresh, and the rice is moist. The Sushi chef even gave my husband and I a small sample when we were curious on what to order. Relaxing environment to eat in, they are also very prompt to have your... More

This place has really great food!! It is very clean, and has a nice decor inside! I was introduced to it by a friend, as I had driven by it many times, but it never looked like a place I'd want to eat. I was wrong! Their sesame chicken is great!! I was so impressed that I brought my wife... More

We had lunch here and were excited that we could order a combination of Japanese food and Chinese food - we love both. We found that both were a disappointment. The Chinese food was bland and the sushi we ordered was questionable in terms of how fresh it was. There are well priced lunch specials, but the food is frankly... More

Their menu is broad and their preparation is spot on. Pork egg foo young was delicious and huge. Lunch special are a bargain. Get there, try anything on the menu and you will be pleased. Egg rolls, fried rice and hot and sour soup were perfect.

Tonight we had dinner here. This use to be one of our favorite local Chinese restaurants. Something major has changed in our opinion. It's hard to think of one positive thing about this meal. We ordered egg rolls, General Tso chicken and the Mongolian Beef. The egg rolls were fair at best. The General Tso chicken was way over cooked.... More

I read all the review and so we went to Lucky Garden Restaurant. I was really hungry for good/great Chinese. This was rated 5 stars. We had an order of egg rolls and fried chicken wings. The egg roll were just okay, commercial frozen variety which tasted like it was baked and not deep fried which I did like as... More
