China Garden Brighton

At the foot of Preston street, China Garden is a restaurants I’ve walked passed countless times yet I never actually ventured in, choosing instead to visit the red fronted China China a number of doors up the street.

However, and if you’ve eaten in China China you’ll appreciate what I’m saying, Chinese food has been somewhat tainted, at least in my opinion, with an association of sweet and sticky dishes, which can sometimes leave you uncomfortably food. The decision to visit the slightly more expensive China Garden was born out of the idea of putting this opinion to rest, and after getting the take away home, I was pleasantly surprised.

Outstanding aromatic duck with, for once, enough pancakes to use everything up, juicy prawns, which actually taste like prawns and egg fried rice, which has actually seen more than one egg.

China Garden is a breath of fresh air and although only my first visit, I’ll certainly be returning

What we ordered:

Quarter Crispy Aromatic Duck £9.95

Crispy Seaweed £4.95

Sweet and Sour King Prawns £9.80

Chicken with Cashew nuts in Yellow Bean Sauce £7.80

Egg fried rice £3.95

Price: £36.45 for two

Extras: Free prawn crackers on takeaway orders… Plus a pianist and dance floor for those dining in the restaurant.

Verdict: Perhaps one of the best Chinese take aways in Brighton promising fresh and tasty dishes… but don’t be put off by the somewhat expensive menu as it’s certainly worth paying that bit extra.
