I hail from Chicago, and since arriving to Raleigh, its been a struggle to find "good food" in this town, compared to what I'm used to back home. None of my Chicago friends who live here DARED give any recommendations on Chinese restaurants, so it became a, "tread lightly" experiment. I eventually found a place near the NC State campus, but it's pretty far from my house. Recently, after work, I Google Map'd Chinese restaurants near my location and Orient Garden popped up. Instead of calling, I decided to drive there to place my order in person, after laying eyes in the place. To my surprise, there was a line out the door, or so I thought: after 3pm, they only do take out. I walked up and viewed the menu, and, instead of my usual go to General Tso's Chicken, I settled on the garlic vegetable and chicken stir fry (I asked them to cook it without the spice, and she kindly obliged). I got it home, about a 15 min drive, and immediately tore into it. It was great! The veggies were crisp and hot, and it sat in a garlic sauce that I wish I could request on all my dishes from here on out. Very flavorful, and enough for me to split into meals (dinner for tomorrow night). I will be back, as the true test is that General Two's chicken, so stay tuned!

Another first! We had just left the Southpoint AMC theater seeing the new Black Panther movie and wanted to eat dinner out. Of course it was Friday and a holiday do every single place we went to there was up to a two hour wait. My sister suggested Orient Garden where we could get takeout and eat at home and I said I hope it is good. She stated it had been several years but I was not disappointed. The food was fresh, spicy and full of vegetables just like my preference. Now this place is on my "go to" list! #Yum

Definitely my new go-to Chinese place! Not only was the food really good and ready quickly, but it was priced very reasonably! Also, this was the first traditional Chinese takeout restaurant I’ve ordered from in a long time that took me seriously when I said “please make it spicy”, and they really did! Very pleased.

This is the most consistent and fresh Chinese American food in Durham! I always get orange tofu, and it’s always great. They have many vegetarian options which I appreciate. The restaurant is clean, though they’re not currently offering dine in. Takeout is fast. Definitely check it out!

Not the cheapest but hands down best general tso chicken I've ever had. The chicken is super crispy and sauce is flavorful and sweet. I'm moving out the of the area and will really miss this place.

General Tsos Chicken, extra spicy makes my day! They do such a good job with Chinese food here, it's embarrassing to the other restaurants in the area. It gets busy, so there's frequently a line, but never anything major.

Very yummy food. Some of it is spicy. Not a problem for me but just throwing it out there. Very friendly service. The Gen. Chicken really is that good. I just wish they still had soup as I am always trying to find the best hot and sour soup on planet earth.

This place has some really good Chinese food. It usually gets really busy on the weekends, but it's worth the wait.
