Spadina Garden

Posted by Staff / Listed on September 25, 2009 / review policy

Spadina GardenSpadina Garden is different than the typical Chinese restaurant as flavours and ingredient combinations find their roots in Szechuan, Hunan, Peking and Hakka cuisine. They have more than 200 options to choose from the menu.

My family and I have been going to Spadina Garden for over 24 far back as when it used to be located on Spadina. The food is extremely authentic. Be sure to try their house specialty Crispy Wonton soup and their pan fried dumplings!

My favorite place to go for chinese in the city. Great spot to have lunch with a friend. Try the Hot and Sour Noodle Soup.

Food is swimming in way too much oil,gave me and my friend nasty stomach aches.I recommend the "Eating Garden" or "Noble restaurant", you can taste good quality Chinese food without it drowning in grease.

I love this place. The crispy ginger beef is my jam.

Spadina Garden is fantastic. The special house noodles are delicious, and the staff is super friendly!

I recently went here with my girlfriend. We walk by this corner all the time, and we love Chinese food (particularly Szechuan and Hunan), yet for some reason we avoided this place for a long time. Big mistake in waiting so long. The food was excellent. The sauces are more or less authentic, and don't hold back on the flavour. I have to echo the love for the crispy ginger beef. Absolutely perfect. The hot & sour soup is also excellent. (It is Szechuan style in a town where there is a lot of Cantonese style hot & sour soup, which frankly doesn't appeal to me as it is more sweet than either hot or sour.) The decor was tasteful, too. No plastic table linens and a clean, simple style to the walls. Everyone seemed to be enjoyed themselves, customers and patrons. It's nice to know I can get decent Chinese grub without heading to the 'burbs (and by grub, I'm excluding dumplings and soups, as there are obviously many good offerings of these in the downtown Chinatown).

I have come to understand that fees for on-line degree gurus tend to be a
great value. Like a full College Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of
Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration
with a full study course element of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560.
Online studying has made getting your education so much easier because
you can earn your own degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish from work.
Thanks for other tips I have certainly learned through your web-site.

Excessive MSG and generally uninspired cooking.

It was a waste. Northing is special here but poor food and service ,its pretty dirty too. the soap container is of two litter, you undestand how often someones take of the washroom. spiders in januaey.

This is a "Chinese food" place for Non-Chinese people.
Not authentic tasting at all.

Within 5 min of where I work, but I would not go there unless dragged by friends with no taste for authentic Chinese food.

And this made top 5 in "Chinese food" in Toronto :/

Very much agreeing with the last comment. I have been dragged there by people from work more than once.
The food was tasteless. Each time I was there, the people in our group who understand authentic Chinese ended up regretting the decision. You might just as well go straight to get Chinese food from any food court in the mall.

I had placed an order for delivery from Spadina Gardens and it wasn't anything special as said before but it wasn't bad. Also, I had made the mistake by giving them the wrong phone number and which led the delivery man to wait for a bit. I had apologized obviously but this wasn't enough for him due and this was evident as he took my money and didn't ask if I needed change and mumbled something under his breath as he walked away. People make mistakes evidently but this had left a bad taste in my mouth. Don't think I'll be ordering there again.

I really wanted to like this place. They were so sweet on the phone I was hoping I'd be giving them a lot of future business. My husband and I have been trying (and failing) to find good Chinese delivery for ages and are usually disappointed. Tonight we ordered from Spadina Garden. The dumplings were hard, thick, tasteless and inedible. The beef and broccoli was OK but again, very little taste. The General Tao was revolting. The hot and sour soup had a strange taste, almost like it had acid or chemicals in it, so much so that I spit it right back out seconds after taking the first sip. I can't even describe the smell when I poured it out......I can't think of a meal EVER that was this bad.
