Best Chinese food in the area, hands down. We are from NY and know great Chinese. Staff is friendly. Owners do a great job. We eat here at least monthly, if not more. Great place to eat. Wish they would update the decor sometime soon.

Haven't been here in years. After having dinner, I wondered what took me so long to go back. The portions were very large. The hot & sour soup had a lot of vegetables and tofu. The staff were also very helpful. Prices are moderate, but the value comes from the portions size. Even takeout portions are substantial.

Best wonton soup ever. Whenever we get sick we always go there and get a quart of wonton soup. It makes the throat feel good and it's so yummy.

First impression might be "just another Chinese restaurant", but that will change by the time you leave. The decor is average, strip mall restaurant, but that's all that's average at Hong Kong Garden. The service is fast, friendly, and professionally efficient. And the food - excellent with huge portions and fairly priced. Both times my wife and I took home... More

Have been to Hong Kong Gardens many times and consider it to be a cut above the other Chinese fare available in Lancaster. There fried rice is actually brown instead of the golden yellow that I see at so many Chinese places. Their General Tso's Chicken has a crunchy exterior and is delicious. Other favorites are their Kung Pao chicken... More

Old school Chinese place. You get the traditional experience of décor (dated but nice, I'm sure it was beautiful when new) house made crispy noodles and mustard sauce not the factory made prepackaged stuff. They still put strips of pork in the wonton soup and they even use the cardboard Chinese containers for leftovers! My service was great..an older gentleman... More

Been here forever. Decor okay. But the food is very good. We have eaten in and today we got takeout. One warning. The prices seem higher than other places, but... The portions are larger. If you get take out, you will see much larger containers than other Chinese restaurants. Their steam dumplings are very good. Steves special beef with asparagus... More
