Great Chinese food - 08/14/11 05:09 AM

If you're in the mood for great Chinese food there's a new place in town for take out - Happy Hour Fast Food located under the Skybox. Very clean with a full menu, not just fried everything (although their fried chicken looked yummy). The Sesame Chicken was my favorite tonight. We also had the Beef and Shrimp Stir Fry and Chicken Fried Rice which were very tasty. They also have excellent ice cream. The same owner used to be located next to Gecko Graphics about three years ago. The name was Fang Yu then. We used to eat there all the time and were sadden when they left the island.

Yes it was the Jade Garden. Both myself and my sister worked there. It used to be at the Barrier Reef Hotel and then it moved close to the BYC. It was excellent.

There were times when people would be lined up out of the door - with a waiting time of over an hour. It was rocking!

I miss those days and I really miss good (American) Chinese food.

Amanda, next time you are in the city, lets have lunch at Chon Saan on Kelly St, my fav. Love the river lobster and black bean sauce.

The Jade Garden was truly awesome. I got to eat there only once before they closed. Are you saying this take out place has the same owner? Is the quality as good? The only really good Chinese food I get now are egg rolls at Cindy's (after I blot the extra oil off) and Vegetable Chop Sue at Sun-Up Two

As I recall, Jade Garden had some good non-Chinese specialties, too.

Judy's was great but it burnt down. Cindy's Fast Food on the cross road between Middle Street and Back Street (on the north side) is decent. You can also order from Chan Saan Palace (sp?) in Belize City and they will put your order on a Tropic flight for you!!

Go to Chow San Palace (Belize City) and have the fried eggplant - coated in something heavenly with anise and who knows what, then dipped in plum something or another. It does not travel well - eat it right out of the kitchen or not at all, but even people who may not be eggplant enthusiasts (which is most of the population) will likely love this dish.
Not on the menu but on a poster or two pasted on the pillars.

Happy Hour Chinese food is just take out. Much like all the other places in town that mostly sell fried chicken. The difference being is that they also offer a lot of great stir fries and tradition chinese dishes too. You can see the kitchen from the front and it's really clean. When they were at their previous location I used to do take out for dinner parties. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed. Be careful not to order too much though. One dish is typically enough for 2 people.

I would love an Indian restaurant here!

Re: Great Chinese food - 08/16/11 05:40 PM

An Indian restaurant would be great! As long as it is executed better than the last one. It would be nice not to have to get curry flown in from Belize City.

Happy hour is on Tarpon St. between Pescador and Coconut drive - North of the five aside court and under the Skybox restaurant. Looks like an ice cream place from the outside.

What about the Indian Restaurant across the lagoon? Are they still around? I really enjoyed that place, especially the patio boat that picks you up, slow pace easy ride over....

They closed. But an Indian restaurant would fly here, or even an Indian takeaway. Indian food is beloved of Brits and there are lots of Brits here.
