Wow. Was finally able to check out the new dining room since they remodeled last year. Amazing! Food was fantastic as always. Hong Kong Chicken, Egg Rolls, Steak Kew and General Tszo's Chicken are my favorites. Owned by the same family since 1965. We need to support special places like these. Loved it!

Best eggrolls are at Gen Hoe's Geneva IL . They are stuffed with plenty of meat along with some vegetables. Not plain mushy cabbabe.; I ate at Plum Garden this week and some dishes are tasty but, no comparison to Gen Hoe. Gen Hoe has the best sauces, crisp vegetables and generous portions of meat and seafood in their dishes. Staff at both places are very friendly and good service.

Our family has been part of the Plum Garden Family for some time now and I certainly look forward to the dining experience and atmosphere when I can. This is the kind of place that has an energy about it, probably in good favor with dragons I am sure. So if your taking a hot date, birthday celebrant, or even a work outing don't miss the opportunity to make a lasting memory. If this is your first visit and your price conscious then I recommend going at lunch time with a reservation just to be on the safe side. Now the choice is certainly up to you however if you want to do it right the first time around then choose the signature Hong Kong chicken, white rice, egg roll, and tea. All of the additional condiments will be provided and your even gong to have enough to share or take home for a light snack later. The Hong Kong chicken is always right on target. Fresh, crispy, and delicious. Since your the guest I also recommend asking for Chinese Zodiac placemats if available to reinforce the cultural experience and yes the fortune cookies are rigged with wonderful wishes of good fortune and cheer.

Today I called to order carry out early as it is a New Year's Eve at 115 pm. I was told it would be ready in a half hour. I explained I was calling early to pick up at 5 pm. The woman reply take it or leave it we are booked beyond 3 pm for take out. I get you are busy but to tell a customer " Take it or Leave it" is very poor customers service. I have gone to Plum Garden for years but now I will not. I will find an other place to go to. I go to places based on service and quality. Bad service regardless of quality is not worth continued patronage.

My all time favorite Chinese restaurant. I have been going since I was a kid and have never been disappointed. They make the best egg rolls anywhere. I've lived in 7 states and haven't had better. The staff take great care in the preparation and presentation of the food. Atmosphere lovely, place is clean and well kept. Owner Perry Moy is always there, making sure everything is running smoothly. If a place has been successfully operating for 40+ years, you can safely assume they're doing something right.

My co-workers love this place... But I have no idea why! The chicken is always overdone, dry and chewy. The egg rolls though a decent size have no flavor. Today I figured I'd give it one more shot since I really wanted some egg drop soup. I ordered the lunch portion of sweet and sour chicken and a cup of soup. They forgot the soup... Which is the only reason I ordered lunch with the rest of the office. The chicken was again over done and chewy... I can't even bit the large chunks apart let alone cut them with the flimsy knife they pack for you. Do yourself a favor... If you have time go out to Buffalo Grove and go to Yen Yens for Chinese food. I am so done with Plum Garden.

This is not your generic Chinese restaurant. Most Chinese restaurants are generic, mass produced food. Plum Garden is different. Plum Garden is the real deal, grandma came over on the boat Chinese food. While it is a bit pricey for the area, the food is outstanding, portions are huge, and the atmosphere is classy. There is nothing else like it in McHenry County. The food rivals (if not better) then high end Chinese restaurants in Chicago and trust me when I say I've been to all over. I'd like to highlight the eggrolls as probably the best I've had in a very long time. Give it a try, you'll dig it.
