Reviews of Tea Garden Restaurant
11/28/2016 - Local person
Awful, overpriced food. Ordered takeout on 11-28-2016. Ordered Chinese Dumplings, Spring Rolls, and Vegetable Lo Mein. The vegetable lo mein was ok, not great. Lacked any flavor, was really bland. The spring rolls weren't very crispy. Needed to be cooked more. Could tell the fryer grease wasn't hot enough, as the spring rolls were soaked in oil. And, I've never experienced this before in any chinese restaurant anywhere in the USA - and I travel for work a lot, but their soy sauce was watered down to the point where it had no flavor whatsoever. It was like having a cup of water with a teaspoon of soy sauce in it. No kidding.
BUT, the BIG PROBLEM was, the Chinese Dumplings were RAW! RAW pork, uncooked! First of all, Tea Garden's Chinese dumplings are twice the size of any other regular Chinese dumpling. Look at the picture I provided. I put a penny, then a regular Chinese dumpling in the front for comparison, and Tea Garden's dumpling in back of it. And, I cut open another Tea Garden Chinese dumpling next to it to show how raw the pork was inside and how thick the dough on Tea Garden's dumpling is. The dough on a Chinese dumpling should be thin so that it cooks thoroughly and fast, considering raw pork is inside. That doesn't happen in the Tea Garden dumplings because their dough is so thick that the inside of the dough is still raw while the outside is browned from quick pan frying. And, of course the pork inside never reached cooking temperature, and remains raw. Tea Garden colors it's pork brown, so that it looks like it's cooked, but one taste convinces you it's totally raw. If Tea Garden cooks their dumplings longer, then the outside would burn in order to achieve proper cooking temperature inside.
Simply put, Tea Garden doesn't know how to make a proper Chinese dumpling, and their dumpling is a health hazard. I'm going to report it to the Groveland Health Inspector. And to top it all off, their prices are more than regular chinese restaurants. You will overpay for bland, mediocre, and dangerous food.
Avoid this place. There are many other reputable Chinese restaurants close by that have properly cooked food.
