The food is awesome, but it's takeout only. The sesame chicken is really good, so is the moo goo gai pan chicken...i order it without any celery or bell peppers, because I don't like them. The general tso's chicken is really food, but a little too spicy for me. The egg rolls are some of the best in the area.

They usually do a good job, but lately they’ve been lacking. Last time I ordered my food spicy, but it was normal. This time they got it right, but they forgot my spring roll.. I don’t like writing reviews but I waited 15-20 minutes for my incomplete order in the cold, yes I was bummed.

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!

OMG, so good! Has a gourmet flavor with fast food prices and convenience. This place already has a great reputation so it shouldn't have been a surprise. I had the General Tso Chicken, Pork Fried Rice, and Chicken and Broccoli. It was all very good. The rice is authentic and not yellow. Elementary, I know, but if rice is yellow then you know there wasn't much effort placed into it the recipe and likely has those undesired ingredients.

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
