Amazing Food - Slightly Expensive

The food was incredible! - Best chinese food i've ever eaten! The service was unmatchable. The restaurant could do with an update though.

We visited this lovely restaurant last Saturday during their very busy lunch period. We were celebrating my mum's 60th birthday and we had a party of 8 including 2 young children. Even though the staff were rushed off of their feet they were very attentive. We feasted on authentic dim sum plus a further 6 dishes from the main menu.... More

My wife & I dined at China Garden recently for the first time. We are very experienced in travel & eating in China so are hard taskmasters. The restaurant was crowded but after a short wait in the seating area we were shown to our reserved table in the window. We were soon provided with menus & wine list by... More

Very nice dim sum. Good substantial portions. Special noodles were stir fried well and not oily at all but can't say the same for the egg fried rice- all i could taste was oil. Very very very lovely staff!!

We had an extravagant selection of lobster, crab, duck and loads of dishes and all were excellent. Service was also first class but you probably need to book as this is very busy / popular

Having been to this restaurant before and were quite happy, we went for the first time for Sunday lunch. Unfortunately, the restaurant was so busy , it was difficult getting good service and the dishes were served very randomly rather than together as ordered. Will definitely avoid a Sunday in future, but will revisit again.

I have been to this restaurant a number of times as my son studies in Hove, and we have been there for lunch. Always a good sign, is seeing local Chinese people eating there. I adore Dim Sum, and this is what you can get at lunch time, or just choose straight from the main menu. The food is always... More
