I have visited previous and wasn't overally impressed. This time I was! Everything this time tasted better. The Dim Sum was great. The pork two ways with duck is delicious, I recommend! And the range of tasty dumplings is great! Tasty! We didn't eat off the A La Carte Menu in the end. Service was good too.

This restaurant was Soooo good, Best Chinese Ihave had in years, we took the set menu for two at £25 each and there was so much food including shredded duck. All the food was really tasty and get cuts of meat. I would highly recommend eating here, the service was fast and the wine was also good.

This is a genuine Chinese restaurant serving genuine Chinese food. It is classy but not too expensive. The waiting staff are very friendly and enjoy teaching me how to order my food in mandarin. Very clean and tasty. There is a car park just around the corner in regency square and a taxi rank outside.

I have been lucky to eat in some of the best Chinese restaurants in London in the past , as my partner at the time's Dad, owned shares in a few.This food was on par with some of those.However,...

I often think it is strange when people think it is a good sign to see, for example, Chinese people eating in a Chinese restaurant, as if all ethnic people have good taste in food. There were a lot of Chinese people in here tonight but it didn't make me enjoy my food anymore because of it. We had the... More

I've been to this restaurant many times for Dim Sum, and each time we enjoyed our meals. The food tastes great, but probably contains MSG. There is a variety of noodles, dumplings and other traditional Chinese dishes, including freshly baked egg tarts on Sundays.

They were very busy, but the food was very good, the service less so. I thought the service forgivable because it was so busy, my friend was less impressed.

China garden is the best Chinese restaurant We have ever been. We always return every time we visit Brighton and it is by far the best dining experience in England. Especially if you like sake!

Restaurant full of Chinese families which is always a good sign. We had dim sum for a family lunch and the food was very good and enjoyed by all. Service was very good despite the very busy restaurant.

I was so happy. The food was great and the customer service was outstanding(not usual for Chinese restaurants). My father was visiting from China and said the food was outstanding. We had searched for good Chinese food and was so happy to have found it!!!
