I recently moved to the Troy/Lansingburg area. Looking for a new Chinese food establishment to call my own I decided to give Spring Garden a try. I could not think of a worse waste of money. (Except maybe giving multi-million dollar bonuses to CEOs of failing corporate companies shortly after receiving a huge bail out from the government...but that's another rant all together...) Not only was everything I ordered completely loaded with grease, it was sub-par at best. I don't think a single thing was actually hand/home made. Everything seemed as if it came frozen and was simply fried. Even the dumplings and eggrolls. The only thing that was half way decent was the beef and broccoli, but it tasted more like a Skillet Creation you can find in your grocer's freezer than chinese food. It was very lacking in that great chinese food flavor - ginger, garlic, etc. Maybe that's the standard in the Troy area. But my old chinese food stompin' grounds made pretty much everything themselves. And if they didn't, they sure fooled me - it was a much better quality frozen food. (Lam's Kitchen and Golden Dragon in Albany are my favorites. Golden Dragon's crab rangoon is RIDICULOUS...Ridiculous being a good thing.) So, if you're as big a fan of chinese food as I am, do yourself a favor and DO NOT order from Spring Garden. I consider myself a fair person and normally, as in the past, if I order take out from a new place and it's not that great, I will give them another try or two. No one is perfect. But not Spring Garden. No way. It wouldn't be worth it to me to try another $1 egg roll from there. Next time I get a hankering for some delicious chinese food, I'll look elsewhere. I'd rather go without than order from Spring Garden again.
