Although you order dim sum off a menu and not from carts, it is still tasty. The regular menu also has a lot of authentic Chinese cuisine, such as pork and preserved egg congee. Service is usually good also. I go back and forth between China Yuan and Yummy House.

Visiting Tampa Bay and seeking Chinese cuisine that included Dim Sum as an option. Reviews lead us to China Yuan. Arrived weekday around 1:30 and seated immediately. Wide selection of Dim Sum (order from kitchen, not a cart service). Was wanting a Dim Sum size or app size of honey walnut shrimp but was told that was not an option... More

I am originally from NY and finding an authentic Chinese restaurant in Tampa is hard to find. This place is as close as I can get, try the noodle dumpling roast pork soup awesome.

Was at the Zoo, got hungry so went here. Food was great, it looked so tasty that we over ordered but total was still reasonably cheap. If you are in area go and visit, you won't be disappointed

Lo Mein not Good! The noodles are paper thin a cross between rice & cellophane. Flavorless, not enough vegetables. Sweet n Sour Chicken was divine! Fried Rice was very good. It was worth a try One Time. For us we will stick with Yummy House. The Waitress was Fantastic!!!!!

One of my 2 favorite authentic Chinese restaurants in Tampa area-(other Yummy House just about a mile away). They have dim sum too here at China Yuan that can be ordered off menu not Hong Kong style from off the carts.

Usually Chinese families at the tables, always a good sign. Barbecue is first rate. The Peking duck plate with rice is always top notch.

We found China Yuan on Trip Advisor searching for Peking duck. We started with shrimp dim sum and fish balls. Truly amazing and priced well. Our server was really sweet and attentive. The duck was good and very flavorful, but pricey though. Would return for the dim sum.

If you are in the vicinity of Armenia & Waters Ave. it is worth an experience to try out this local Chinese restaurant. It is not fancy but the service is good. A good selection menu for your appetite. Prices are fairly reasonable and the quality of food is good.
