The main reason for my review is to update the closing time. It is always 10 pm.
On the food, and service they get my 5 STARS, the egg drop soup was so mild, comforting and served real hot as it should be. A true revival. The orange chicken a la carte was very well made, not spicy so a sure delight for the younger one. The serving was very generous that my daughter and I ate at the restaurant and next day had lunch with the left over orange chicken and rice. SO we truly got 2 meals and one drink for 15$ including tip.
We just moved to Richardson and Chien Garden will sure be a keeper.
Best chinese food in Richardson/Plano/Garland area for the price (around $6-9 a plate). Nice service/servers. Authentic chinese food, not americanized, but still appeals to everyone. Inside is nice and cozy
Chein Garden, while casual, isn't your standard Chinese buffet/delivery joint. In fact they have neither a buffet or delivery service, just really good well prepared food. I've been going there since I was in the 6th grade (I'm 35 now) and the same staff has been there day in and day out. Very nice people. Kevin and Amy are the best!! (I'm pretty sure that's not their real names though hehe)
They have the standard Chinese fare as well as authentic Chinese and Korean dishes all it very reasonable prices. Also, they have the best Egg Rolls and Hot and Sour soup in all of the West... maybe even East too.
Simply put, Chein Garden has great food served by wonderful people. Great, now I'm hungry!
