China Garden Chinese Restaurant
We have a fully licensed bar and a capacity of 150, offering the ideal setting for an intimate meal with family or friends, but also the ability to cater for private parties. Our wide variety of delicious Dim Sum Dishes are served daily 12:00 - 16:00 while the A La Carte Menu runs right through the day from 12:00.
Great great service but food and dish presentation not what it used to be
Have been meaning to try China Garden for many years and finally got there.
Despite it being a Thursday, the restaurant was quite busy and there was a good atmosphere. Even though it was busy the service was excellent and all the food was served promptly and very hot.
I am a great fan of Chinese food and have been to many restaurants including the Michelin starred kai in Mayfair and this rates with the very best. The quality of the food was exceptional, and unlike some of the upmarket Chinese restaurants the portion size was excellent.
Strongly recommend the Soft Shell Crab and the Crispy belly pork.
I cannot wait to go back and try some different courses.
Always great food but thought over a £100 for 3 of us excessive seeing we didn’t have any alcohol and 12% service charge high too even though service was very good, I’d like to decide what I leave as a tip thank you!
We were in Brighton to pick up our daughter who was doing the London to Brighton ultra challenge, we found China Garden had room for us, as we didn’t know the area or where to eat, but it was a very pleasant meal, the staff were friendly and efficient all we would definitely recommend
The food was good and reasonably priced. The things that let it down were:
a) The staff seemed disorganised and were inattentive.
b) The place was very noisy and we struggled to hear each other talk
c) The table were too close together and needed partitions to give more intimacy
As usual brilliant food - best Dim Sum in Brighton - and as usual we over ordered
Best dim sum in Brighton, really enjoy eating here
We were a party of eight and we enjoyed a varied menu, delicious food and well priced.
Very accommodating staff. A place to return to !
Really nicely cooked authentic Chinese food made with fresh ingredients. Lovely atmosphere, nice music, friendly and attentive service. Will definitely be visiting again!
Restaurant was quite busy for a Sunday night but the staff coped well and were efficient and attentive. The food is OK but seemed a little expensive for what it was, plus a 12.5% service charge was also added which was a little cheeky. Probably wouldn't bother returning.
Not great service, no mention of obligation to pay a surcharge.
We had friends down for the weekend and this is the first time we have been here. The staff were attentive without being over the top. The food was good
Excellent food and service definitely recommend 👍🏻👌🏻
This is the best in Brighton and Hove for quality and value for money.
It’s obviously well established and well run, the staff are very professional. I’ve never had a poor meal here.
Food is always great, but the stuff are a little unpredictable, they can seem a bit short with you or be super nice. Otherwise service as good as usual, was gutted they didn't do the dim sum menu in the evening!
Great restaurant, very classy and the best Chinese food Iv ever had. The service was also the best Iv ever experienced also xx
This restaurant was a recommendation and also seems to have very good reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately, with the exception of 1 dish (Salt & Pepper King Prawns) the food was bland and tasteless and some of the meat (chicken and beef) had a very strange texture. The service was acceptable.
I really enjoyed the food at China Garden. We went at about 9pm and so the restaurant was quite quiet. The service was very good and the staff were attentive. Our food came quickly for each course. I would consider the price of the food to be very reasonable - and it was very tasty! There was a man playing the piano whilst we ate, which was very atmospheric and a bit different to other restaurants.
I went on a Saturday evening with my wife and sister. We all thought the food was excellent as per usual.
The staff are very hard-working and try their best to please.
The pianist deserves a mention, too. Thank you.
Our first time in the China Garden. I think it is the best Chinese restaurant in Brighton, more like a London China Town restaurant. The lemon chicken was the best we have ever had and the barbecue spare ribs were yummy.
Can't wait to go back.
We went here for our work Christmas do and it was an excellent experience. The staff were really lovely and friendly and the food was delicious!
Great service. They were so helpful and let us take our time choosing!
Enjoyed the food. They packed up all the leftovers so nicely in doggy bags.
And once they knew we were with Jan, we were well looked after. Just shows how friendly they are with their regulars. Must be good of people go back over so many years ;-)
Really tasty food and great service. The second time we have been and it's been the same both times.
Lovely friendly cheerful staff who were interested in their patrons, lovely hot food served with a smile, best chinese food I have ever had
Lovely food as always! Staff friendly and very professional! A must whenever your in Brighton!
Beautiful, quality dim sum at good prices with friendly, attentive service. Well worth the drive from London. Even the desserts are credit worthy! Try the coconut paste or the egg custard tarts. They're enough to rival any Portuguese ones!
Wrong Bill (60£ more than ordered food) , average quality of food
Really impressed with the quality of the food - and good portion sizes as well.
My family and I have been coming to this restaurant for years. I am happy to say it is fab as always. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling through Brighton to visit this restaurant.
Great food and service but incredibly expensive and they added service charge to the bill which we weren't expecting. Service charge should be optional
Excellent food and service. We had the set meal for 2. Each course was served in a timely un rushed manner.
Fantastic Chinese restaurant. Probably the best Chinese meal we have had in years. Great service, reasonable prices, and nice atmosphere. The only let down was the lack of a disabled access loo, otherwise we would have stayed much longer. Staff very helpfully made a table up on the lower level for us, with no fuss or awkwardness, which we really appreciated.
Upmarket restaurant, extensive menu, interesting dining options. Quite expensive for everyday dining, more "special occasion". The service charge added is quite high.
I will advice to aviod china garden.
I am giving them only 1* because of
2 service charge 12%
3 Rudd staff
We family of 5 adult 2 kids visit in china garden.
Food was average and service was poor. Food they serve on table was not hot. but, just look warm.
Staff sound bit rudd. They bring wrong food on our table, looks like they not well trained.
Food was average and expensive.
The real slap in the face the hidden 12% SERVICE CHARGE. When i ask them why they charging 12% service charge. Because there prices are already high enough. Then the maneger start asking me questions and he ask me soooo rudely.
How long i am living in uk ????
Did i ever been to any restaurant ???
I not reply anything to them. because, i realised they dont give s**t about custmer.
I just paid them full bill plus 12% service charge.(£152)
Before i left that place, i told them i will leave feedback about what i experience today.
Again they dont care, they said they have plenty off good feedbacks. My feedback not gone change anything.
I do not recommend anyone.
Has to be one of Brighton's best Chinese restaurants! Would totally recommend. Whole family enjoyed it. Staff helped to make sure we didn't overorder. Duck with pancakes was magnificent and our kids ate loads. So was the lobster, Singapore noodles and Choy sum greens. Has always been great and continues to be great
Amazing dim sum and we've eaten a lot of dim sum! Staff are friendly, service is quick. Food is so fresh and tasty. Whenever we crave good Chinese food we go to China Garden!
Fantastic food, friendly staff and an impromptu violinist. The best chicken in yellow bean with cashew nuts I've ever had.
We booked online several days beforehand but the waiting staff seemed a bit surprised when we arrived. However, they found us a table for two at the end of the restaurant where we could chat and hear each other. There was a bit of confusion over the size of the portions but the food came quickly and was very good.
Service was also attentive especially as the restaurant was full but lacked a bit of "front of house" although we noted that patrons who were clearly regulars seemed to have a a good rapport with the staff.
We'll go back again.
Fantastic service and food
Food was tasty and service faultless. Would go here again.
