    Unfortunately, although we turned up for our appointed reservation, we were very disappointed to find the restaurant no longer serves New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. As a result we chose to eat elsewhere as this is all we drink. No doubt the food at China Garden would have been as good as always.

    Fantastic as always. We love this place! We don’t live locally and travel into Brighton just for this Chinese. We even travel in to collect a takeaway. The staff are friendly and efficient. It’s not cheap (or super expensive), but you definitely get what you pay for. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for a Chinese.

    Asked for one of the shutters to be closed whilst we ate and it seemed to be a great inconvenience to the staff not really wanting to comply and when leaving staff couldn’t wait to open it again ,no manners Not the restaurant I used to go to 20 years ago , then the staff couldn’t do enough for you

    Lovely meal. Would have been nice to be spread our a bit rather than all sitting in the same area. It is rather expensive but no faults with the food.

    The best Chinese restaurant ever, cannot be faulted. If you want Chinese food and are in the Brighton area it’s the place to go. First dined here approx 30 years ago and although we live in London, we’ve eaten here whenever we stay in Brighton. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending this restaurant, you will not be disappointed

    It has been one of the best Chinese restaurant and was excellent value for money. (Ps my dad owned a Chinese Restaurant - so I know when something is good) The menu was varied and the food came quickly. Most of all it was well cooked to good taste. The service was good. Attentive but not too much! Always attended to when needed attention. Sadly I’m not local to Brighton. But highly recommend.

    Probably one of the best Chinese in Brighton! Still a bit grubby around the edges but hey ho that’s the Chinese for you! Cleaner than some I’ve been! Food is good. One male waiter is very miserable but the lady waitresses are friendly enough. Never like service charge added and consider it bad greedy manners!
