Went out with a work party of 9. Food (set menu) was excellent and wine very drinkable! Staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely come back.

Just off the sea front in Preston Street is where you'll find this great restuarant serving good Chinese food in generous size portions in friendly surroundings. Eaten here a few times and so far consistently good

Was recommended this place by a colleague and decided to try it out, and very glad I did. The service was really lovely, with lots of smiles and warmth. The atmosphere was brilliant as well, and the meal was very very good. Loved the background music as well, gave it a really lovely ambiance.

This was my second time eating at China Garden. The food was absolutely delicious but a bit over priced. However my boyfriend and I left with very happy bellies. One of the best Chinese restaurants I have been to, would definitely recommend.

Was our anniversary, we were promptly seated, offered menus, overall service, very automatic, no warmth, and when I asked if they had desserts for diabetics, they laughed, and dismiss me, like if I was being silly...
