Authentic chinese food, very clowded on weekends, need to wait at least 15 minutes. service is ok, parking is limited.
I always look forward to having dimsum at China Garden, going over 6 years. Last weekend was not the same, the chicken feet tasted different and the steamed pork BBQ buns were definitely smaller. Missed having the steamed broccoli, which was not ready by 10:30. Maybe give them another chance.
The service is so bad I will never go there again. A waiter almost fights with a customer and I never see such things in this country. I believe the waiter is from China, that explains why. The customer shows the waiter that a dish is not cooked. But the waiter has such bad attitude that he took the disk... More

If you go at a time when other people are eating, then be prepared for a wait. We have waited up to forty-five minutes for a table at lunchtime on a weekend. There is dim sum served here, and that excellent cuisine cannot be found everywhere . . .and it is especially good at this restaurant. There is a large... More
Let's get this clear ... most Asian restaurants don't offer great service by American standards. It's just the culture. So, don't expect class A service here or most other Asian restaurants for that matter. What this place offers is the most authentic Cantonese food in Orange County. Dim sum is served every day. A line builds up on the weekend... More
