Wow! Great food and service! Big dishes and the taste is out of this world! We had the aromatic duck and the chef's choice 2. They had to carry us (me and my wife) out 😉

Had the seafood feast which looked to be a rather expensive choice. However, the meal proved to be excellent value for money and the service complemented what proved to be a memorable occasion. The scallop starters followed by a superb, and very plentiful and extremely tasty lobster provided the basis for the meal followed by the later dishes made this... More

This was our second visit and it was just as good as we remembered. It's all very well done and the service is top notch.

Ordered takeaway via Just Eat. Meal was ready to go at agreed time. But that was the only good thing about it. We have gotten takeaways from China Garden in the past which have been excellent, however for what ever reason this time the quality of the food was very poor. The lemon chicken normally fragrant and tender, was this... More

After starting the evening by sharing some bubbles and giggles with my lovely family at the outstanding Grand Hotel Brighton for my Birthday - we booked a table at the China Garden as I hadn't been there for a number of years. We were 'greeted' by a moody (mature lady) waitress who instead of welcoming us into their restaurant or... More

This is a very large restaurant that also gets busy on a Saturday night and it's been a staple in Brighton for donkey's years. You know what you're going to get here - 'English Chinese' - and it's none the worse for that. When we arrived we were ignored at the door. We waited patiently, but despite waiters walking passed...

The first thing you notice is just how busy this place is followed by the shere number of Chinese people eating there. This is usually a good sign and we were not disappointed. We had a fabulous meal with attentive service. The duck was the star of the show! We will be back :)
