One good indicator of the China Garden is the number of Chinese Nationals eating here. There is a dim sum menu as well as the more usual "english" chinese menu. For my money this is one of the best Chinese restaurants I have eaten in. The food is excellent, freshly cooked, not overly dosed with MSG (monosodium glutamate). Just a... More

Dim sum is my favourite food and I've been to a fair few places around the world, from China, New York, San Francisco and London. I've been craving dim sum and we usually go to Joy King Lau in London (which I've been going to since I was little with my family). Moving out of London to Brighton, I needed... More

One of the best Chinese meals I have had. Four of us were dining and I tasted a little of everyone's dish. Would have enjoyed any of them. We drank mateus rose, for me first time since the 60s. Our excellent waitress was an enthusiastic wine server so we got through 3 bottles. Couldn't have enjoyed dining out more. A... More

Starting with the positive, the food was good, the dim sum in particular were tasty. Now to the service, we were visiting early evening prior to the cinema and wanted a light meal. Having selected four starters and a 1/4 duck we were told "that's not enough food, you need mains". We explained we wanted to share some dishes and... More
