Food, service and atmosphere were all first rate. My wife and I ate here and were totally satisfied in every respect. You can'y do better in Biscayne. I highly recommend this restaurant to all. You can see your food being prepared. Menu is extensive. Valet parking is $3.50.

I'm one of those people who loves Chinese cuisine, but the old original specialties made common in the New York China Town. Their menu is vast, the dining welcoming to all size parties, but it's not fancy nor laced with frills. The service is very good, and if you like, you can watch your meal being prepared thru a glass... More

We had a conference at the Marriott, and got out at 11:30 for lunch, which also happened to be the time the restaurant opened. We waited at least 15 minutes to be acknowledged by our waiter. We ordered some dim sum, an Um Roll, and fried rice, and waited another 45 minutes to get our LUNCH! Others around us had... More

Food was great we asked for a table at the glass screen and watched our f being cooked. The restaurant was busy. we had been before and choose to stay in Miami rather than Fort Lauderdale so that we could eat here. Great food, service friendly plus catered for gluten free.

Read some of the other reviews that dissed the sushi being premade or not very good or whatever. Don't know if they even went to same restaurant. I sat at the Sushi Bar, after ordering, watched the Sushi Chef make my sushi (2 different rolls) completely from scratch in front of me. As for the quality of the sushi, having... More

Pleasant staff, large menu, nice presentation. Sushi prepared quite differently than most NY sushi restaurants. This sushi was topped with a spicey sauce, and the tuna roll was 1/10 tuna and the rest avovado and fillers. Tons of rice wrapped it up. My granddaughter did not eat it. Bird's nest was ok.

Wish you were as impressed by our sushi as you were by our staff, menu and presentation. Thanks for this honest review. We'll consider looking into how we make our tuna rolls. We hope the next time you and your granddaughter are in Miami, you won't hesitate to give us another try! Thanks again, Tony Chan's Water Club More

All food is prepared to order. Many different, unique items that can be customized to your taste eg. No salt. No MSG is used and the restaurant service is hospitable and fast for the South! Try this place next time you are in the mood for traditional Chinese or exquisite sushi!

Visited twice and the food was fantastic. Either Chinese or Japanese is available and the service is quite good. Great to view live cooking while you await your food. Highly recommend this restaurant

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews as I had a very good experience here. The waiter was very helpful in recommending a dish when I told him I wanted a shrimp dish. I had the hot and sour soup which was very tasty followed by the red lantern shrimp in tangy sauce. This was really excellent! Unique flavor... More

We had really anticipated our meal at Tony Chan's. It started out alright with us being seated near the kitchen so we could see the chefs preparing the food. The décor is somewhat outdated in old school Chinese banquet style but we didn't really care because we were there for the food. The mixed seafood in a basket was good... More

We're disappointed to hear that though we started out well, we fell flat by the end of your visit. Please accept our apologies for the lack of compassion when it came to the complaints regarding your Chilean Sea Bass. You're right, we should have made things right with you, Tanis.
