It's really hard to get good Chinese food in South Florida. I drove from Palm Beach where there are no quality Chinese restaurants just restaurants that cater to elderly and suburban New Yorkers - who believe an egg roll, chop suey and general cho chicken constitutes an authentic dining experience. Combine that with their refusal to pay a fair price... More

We went for a late dinner (9 pm) on a Tuesday. The food was average, but the temperature was barely warm. We had a few bites, then sent the main dish and fried rice to be reheated. They came back steaming, but quickly lost temperature again. (Tip for the restaurant - serve on hot plates like most competent Chinese restaurants.)... More

Excellent food. It is one of the few places that offers true/delicious Chinese food. This restaurant has been in this location for years. Every time we visit we are truly pleased. Must tried.

Had a great lunch with my wife and son. Great dumplings! Try the leek dumplings and shrimp and pork. Very good egg rolls.

Tropical is a Miami institution that compares very well with dozens of other Dim Sum palaces I've checked out around the world. I believe they are the only or one of very few in South Florida that still serves on carts on weekends. Their regular menu is a little more adventurous and exciting than your typical Chinese with some exotic... More

Ladies came around with different trolleys of food to offer which I have never experienced before. I enjoyed this experience and there was lots on offer. Staff were friendly. Food was okay. The only thing that slightly put me off was seeing meat hanging in the kitchen. I know I eat it but I don't really want to see it,... More

We decided to go out instead of calling for takeout, and we are glad we did. The egg rolls were fresher, the corn soup was tasty with some hot sauce, and both our main dishes, supplemented by the house fried rice, were plentiful.

We had General Tso's Chicken and Honey Garlic chicken and both were excellent. On prior occasions I had Peking Duck in 2 courses and it was outstanding. Their dim sum is also great with many choices served from carts. They have many vegetarian and vegan choices on the menu.

I have only been here once so have limited experience but it seemed that they do have mostly authentic Chinese food. The dim sum we've tried were good from chicken to pork and shrimp, but the deep fried squid I was not impressed with. Ordered a peking duck, it was fun to have it partially taken apart at the table... More
