Modern Chinese cooking with authentic roots. Founded in 1965 by our Grandmother and Founder Connie Moy, Plum Garden has been proudly serving the McHenry County Community for over 56 years. Our dedication to Quality and Community has always been and will always be our focus. We still honor our grandmother's recipes to this day as we handroll roll our award winning egg rolls each and every morning. All of our sauces are homemade, all of our proteins are processed by hand daily and we refuse to settle for anything less. At Plum Garden, our portion sizes comfortably feed the families that have been supporting us since 1965, and we wouldn't have it any other way. We offer Dine In / Carry Out / Delivery. Our Dining Room boasts a tasteful blend of authentic antique and modern decor.

The 5 of us arrived on time and were seated promptly. The restaurant was clean and very nice.
The food is the best Chinese food in the northwest suburbs. It is my new favorite place. Several of us had the Hong Kong Chicken and it was moist and excellent. Many places have chicken chunks overcooked in sauce but Not True Here. It was a chicken breast. Excellent and perfectly done. I had the Mongolian beef and it was also done perfectly. It was not strongly. The sauce was great.
The dessert was cinnamon covered rolls. It was a great birthday experience. Our server was excellent. He was prompt throughout the meal to check on us. He also made helpful suggestions on what sauces he liked best with some selections and spot on descriptions of appetizers and entrees. He knew his stuff and we had a great time. We are definitely coming again.

This is a great longstanding family owned restaurant! My parents have been coming here since before I was born and my Father went to high school with the owner Perry. It is a must try for great egg rolls and Hong Kong Chicken!

The traditional tea was not served or offered. Other than that, it was excellent

Won Ton soup is almost a meal in itself and very delicious ! I came back here for the 2nd time just for that alone ! I ordered the Hong Kong chicken , which is their house specialty dish , and was quite tasty . This time I ordered the small portion , because last time I was there , the large portion size was too much after having the won ton soup and egg roll .My advice come Hungry !

Food was excellent. Served in good time and hot. Gage was especially cordial and should receive kudos for his people friendly manner. Will definitely keep Plum Garden in mind next time I'm in the McHenry area.
