About Rose Garden

In August of 2010, The Rose Garden Restaurant in Union City has reach the milestone of its 33rd Anniversary. Serving delicious Chinese cuisine to the Tri-City area since 1977, The Rose Garden Restaurant has been referred to as A Union City Landmark. 

The Rose Garden Restaurant was started by Thomas Wong in the summer of 1977 at the former Union Square Mall. At the time, The Rose Garden Restaurant had 30 seats and Thomas Wong waited on diners while his wife Camilla worked in the kitchen preparing the meals. The Wong children helped with the restaurant work after school and on weekends. Years of dedicated work and long hours enabled Thomas Wong to support his family and allowed his children to go to college. 

In 1989, the Union Square Mall was sold and demolished to make way for the New Marketplace Center. At this time, Thomas Wong relocated The Rose Garden Restaurant to Central Plaza facing the busy Alvarado-Niles Road.  In the following years, the Wong children took over the management and the restaurant began to thrive and developed a strong reputation among a growing number of loyal customers for great food and warm friendly service. In 1995, The Rose Garden underwent renovation to expand its dining room giving it the present look. The restaurant now seats 130 and often caters to many large functions. 

In the fall of 1999, the Wong family opened a second location, ROSES Café, at the Union Landing cinema complex. For 10 years, Union City was graced with two restaurants that could call its own.

In 2009, the Wong Family downsized its ROSES Café location, leaving The Rose Garden Restaurant as A Union City Landmark. 

From the modest origins of The Rose Garden Restaurant, the Wong Family created a local independent family business that now spans 33 years. Come and enjoy delicious Chinese cuisine and make us your destination restaurant.
