The dim sum are so good! Great value and delicious! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the price! That resulted in ordered too much and we took some home! We got about 10 different dim sum and it cost around 50 with drinks! The service was good. Only one waitress with glasses there she was not that nice...otherwise,... More

10/26/2014 China Yuan! Went there with a local "foodie" group and very glad I did. Dim Sum was very good... I ordered more than I should have so I could sample a lot of it. Shrimp balls, very tasty... nicely done! The Baked BBQ pork buns were good, if a little light on the filling. Har Gow and Fun Gor... More

Go for the dim sum served during lunch hours only. The sui mei, hai gow, pan fried dumplings are some of the best! You will not be disappointed!

The best part of the meal. I had crispy duck with taro. The taro was done well, The duck was really dry and hard... More

Had dim sum lunch there last week...Tampa is not a dim sum Mecca, and we have tried several places both in Tampa and St Pete's... China Yuan is the best we have had...the place is nothing fancy, but they have their dim sum basics down :) Good quality, nice portions and good service. Shrimp dumplings, sui mai, steamed pork ribs,... More

I was introduced to China Yuan by my boss. He lived 7 years in Taiwan and he knows Chinese cuisine. He speaks fluent Chinese and he gets a little special treatment there. Hence, I think we may get a little better food according to the other reviews I have seen here for this restaurant. This is not like every other... More

Nothing fancy, like real Chinatown places...except for lobsters, live fish, sometimes geoduck and other live seafood. This is our family favorite. The owner and his wife get their asian vegetables from their family's farm in Plant City, FL. Ask what is freshest: snow pea tips, hollow vegetable, baby bock choy, Chinese broccoli...or look at what the regulars at the next... More

Went specifically for Dim Sum and we weren't disappointed. All was excellent. The restaurant is pretty basic, but the food and service were great. We'll definitely return.

The Lunch menu here has been great for years, but lately there are very few customers at lunch time, and we found out why. White rice is on every dish and Baby Bok Choy cut in quarters is the only vegetable. The BBQ was greasy, not hot, and the chicken was bloody. The server was forgetful yet pretentious. And she...
