Amongst this food was Lobster. My grandaughter ate one of his eyes.She got a fiver for that. Most of the food disappeared . What... More

There are a lot of Chinese restaurants in Brighton and Hove and almost all of them serve by varying degrees an anglicised version of the real thing. We've been regulars at China Garden for many years and while standards, quality and authenticity has varied from time to time (as it does with any long standing restaurant with staff changes in...

Have been coming here for a while and it is defiantly without a doubt the best chinese in Brighton and Hove! The Sunday dim sum is fantastic, just as good as London china town and the salt and pepper squid is the best! Also lovely staff and atmosphere.

Note to TripAdvisor: many establishments are good but not very good: you need to put Good between Average and Very Good. Good food, but very expensive. Service not as good as last year, though fair.

Obscene size of starter ribs. They suggested a gap - result lemon chicken which comprised burnt chicken strips and a burnt orange sauce. Couldn't eat it! After much defence, main course was deducted. Any compensation -like an offer of free coffee? Please! No chance!

Preston Street in Brighton is full of restaurants competing for business and the China Garden has been there longer than most. Not cheap (reckon on £25+ per head) but better value than many of the restaurants found in the Laines. Fast and efficient service (which is added on the bill at 10%) and nearby parking in the underground car park... More

Had a great time here on our last night in Brighton. Living in Budapest Hungary it is hard to find good Chinese food, so I was glad we stumbled upon this restaurant. Food was excellent. Service was good, a little too much, but professional. I prefer it to be more low key. All in all a great night.
