“Terrible Chinese Food!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Skip this Gulf Hotel outlet. The one and only time I ate hear I complained bitterly to the manager of the restaurant about the abysmal food at China Garden. I was told that "The Saudis like the Chinese food here." I won't repeat all what I told him. I did tell him the chef should be shot. Just another instance of parting with good money in Bahrain and getting crap in return. If you want high end Chinese Food, try Chin Li behind Sea Shell Hotel and next to Wang Thai. Alternately, go to Beijing Chinese in Adliya on the pedestrian restaurant row for a slightly less expensive meal.

“The best Chinese restaurant in Bahrain”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

This is a an award winning restaurant in the Chinese category. The food is pretty much chinese and prepared by a resident chef from China. Their chicken in garlic sauce and golden fried prawns are superb... Ambiance and seating is very good as well.

“Good”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

For Chinese food, this restaurant is average, maybe a bit over average, but i ranked it average since its quite old. It has good service, and a calm atmosphere. Although quite expensive, but I wouldn't mind going again.

“Good Food; Decent Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Chef came to our table and prepared dishes to our taste but expected a better selection from the top ranked Chinese Restaurant in Bahrain. On the flip side there’s a descent wine and spirits menu.
