    11-27-21: Came here for lunch and ordered a bunch of noodles! Beef Chow fun was pretty good. Chinese pan fried chow mein was very tasty. Singapore noodles were also very good. Also ordered a few vegetable dishes that were cooked very well! Overall, the noodles are great. Traditional Cantonese style cooking. Would definitely come back again for more noodles!

    I am so bummed about our experience at the Garden Cafe recently because I used to love going there a few years back. First, they took about 15 minutes or so just to acknowledge us at the table and take our drink order. When the food was finally brought to our table, the order was wrong. The employee told us as he brought the dish that the cook had gotten confused and asked if it was okay for us to keep it. We felt bad and didn't want to waste food, so we kept it. The chow mein (wrong order) was actually not bad, but the shrimp fried rice and the curry were so disappointing! The shrimp fried rice had almost no flavor at all; it tasted as if we had ordered white rice with minimal shrimps sprinkled around. I was so bummed out because I remember the shrimp fried rice was my favorite from there. The chicken curry was not very good either, it had so much skin hanging around. I've never had curry with that much skin in it. We tried to order a banana split at the end because you can't mess up a banana split, but a worker angrily said no. The waitress then told us they did not have any bananas. Overall, the quality of this restaurant has diminished greatly and we will definitely not be going back. My husband wanted to give it one star, but for old time's sake, I'll give it two.

    I could drink their HK milk tea all day...Continuing my desultory review of all the restaurants on Valley Boulevard ( i should live so long) i stopped off here for breakfast while getting my brakes done at Tommy's. I loved the menu -- one of the things I love most about LA is having so many interesting options. This is a Cantonese café, i think, with many specialties that i wouldn't consider typical breakfast food -- similar to the giraffe cafe in Berlin, i say for cover. I got the omelet, hash brown and pineapple roll . Omelet was done with machine like precision, hash brown was just like McDonald's (maybe less crisp) and pineapple roll was tasty, the slab of butter inside was so think at first I mistook for a slab of white cheddar. I turned the sweet butter into a schmear and enjoyed it early. Along with the milk tea. The service was outstanding and friendly, i was only haole, and I'm building up my confidence to have the pork shoulder and crab congee the next time I'm here

    Related Hong Kong Cafe type place. Like 300 different dishes to choose from. The pasta with shrimp and Scallop was delicious, especially if you don't like cheese. It is creamy with lots of umami and the Scallop cooked well...shrimp Marinated. Mmmm. The pork belly dish was delicious but super duper fatty. The veggies underneath (cabbage and pickled mustard greens) soaked up all the goodness but it was really fatty. The prices are a little higher now ~$17 for each of these dishes but I still really enjoyed it. The pacing of the food being brought out is weird though. We finished the pasta before the pork got brought out.

    Pandemic visit: (menus depicted are from June) Indoor dining available; seating is *mostly* separated, some tables weren't separated enough in my opinion. Dinner was busy but not overly crowded; I didn't have to wait to get a table. Service was decent (only 1 waiter). The food is consistently good. They are sometimes able to make custom dishes that aren't on the menu for me. 3 adults, the bill somehow came out to over $100 for 3 main dishes and 2 drinks. I wish I knew what expensive dishes the other 2 people had but mine was low priced by menu standards. Depicted is the Thai basil chicken with rice and egg.
