    After waiting in an awkward line, we ordered the dumplings in soup, beef noodles, and iced tea. ~50$ The broth was not broth... it was butter and water. The dumplings were overstuffed with flavorless meat, the texture was not pleasant. We were starving and decided not to finish it. The noodles were also very buttery. The meat was okay, but still pretty flavorless. At least that meal came with lots of greens. The tea was great! Overall: -is this Chinese food? 🤔 -no flavor -bad texture -bad presentation -bad service (manager on cash register was distracted and forgot to get our drinks. Was complaining about some other employees undermining her) -overpriced for this terrible quality -would not recommend

    While the grounds at the botanical garden are gorgeous, the Noodle house leaves much to be desired. Cafeteria style, no actual dumplings, and mediocre noodle dishes. Outdoor seating with too few umbrellas. While I was waiting for the food I ordered, the woman prepping it got in trouble for using the same sauce on every dish, she didn't know so she just kept using one sauce was her reply.

    Food was ok. When I'm hungry I can't be picky. I pick the special dish so we can share and it came with rice. I eat small so this fill me up just right for me to continue my garden trek for the day. Special also came with lot of big shrimps. We mixed the rice and dumpling broth together so our dishes have everything. Dumpling broth was warm not hot enough so it tasted kinda bland..I don't think it's a real broth haha. Outdoor seating and the atmosphere made up for it so I enjoyed the scenery while eating. The rice ball was small but I was starving so it was ok too. Red bean inside the ball. I usually eat the kind with the sweet yellow filling in so this balls were kinda weird to me; Chinese version I guess. All this for $31! Will I go back? No. I will remember to pack a sandwich next time.

    The pomegranate ginger lemonade and the jasmine tea slapped. 👍 but the food itself wasn't amazing. Wonton soup was eh, Buddha bowl wasn't super flavorful, and potato dumplings were very potato-y tho the sauce was good. The aesthetic of sitting by the pond and eating was very nice.

    Beautiful setting, plenty of seating, both indoor and outdoor, quick service. Just a little difficult to find.
