In my lifetime I have been to many Chinese restaurants and I truly have loved almost every one for different reasons.
The Asian Buffet in Florence, KY has a great variety for your buck, and the owner’s charisma shines through with his smile. China Star in Crestview Hills makes everything quickly and in college I loved getting their $5 lunch student discount. Kung Food in Covington has fantastic spicy options. Hidden Dragon in Highland Heights has a unique egg roll.
Still, my favorite in the Northern Kentucky area is New Garden.
The vegetable lo-mein was just all right, in my opinion it needed more vegetables. The spring rolls were not the best I’ve had. However, I fell in love with the atmosphere. The restaurant has low dimmed lights and a fish tank. My boyfriend and I sat at a window booth, watching the dreary slight drizzle of rain outside on the paved stone streets, and I felt overwhelmingly comforted. The waitresses was very polite and friendly, smiling when I said “thank you” in Chinese, and she made us feel at home.
I recommend going on a dull day to New Garden in Fort Thomas. You will feel warm and cozy.
