My husband and I went to the Champaign restaurant. We had a great waiter and great food. I loved their moo sho pork and my husband likes the garlic shrimp!

I've enjoyed the Rainbow Garden in the past, but once again the food is slipping in quality, and dining room service was terrible--basically understaffed. Waiter struggled with language, disputed our very clear order, then didn't bring rice, didn't refill drinks until the end of meal,...More
