a garden of dim sum

China Garden is probably one of the best places for dim sum in Irvine. It has a good variety of dishes you can order and they are generally all good. It is a rather clean restaurant for a Chinese place, though the seats don’t look the cleanest. The wait can be quite long during the weekends though. It is obvious if the place is busy since you will see crowds of people lounging around outside. At least this way, you can determine whether you still want to eat here or just go somewhere else.

Barbequed Pork Pastry

It is quite buttery, but because of this, it can be pretty addicting.

Egg Custard

Flaky and quite good, especially when warm.

Barbequed Pork Bun

Tasty, and the bread isn’t too sticky unlike how some other places do it.

Turnip Cake

I like it, but not as good as some other places in my opinion.

Shao Mai

Always a good dish. Probably because it has pork AND shrimp.

Dim Sum??

Typically known for its dim-sum, I went there for regular chinese food during dinner time and it wasn’t crowded. The place reminded me of a typical chinese restaurant with nothing fancy to show. The food was also okay. I would recommend going there for a typical dinner, nothing special. Service was quick and friendly!

Sweet and Sour Pork

This dish was much sweeter than I have had in the past at other restaurants. Still very good tho. The pork was tender and not tough.

Short Pea leaves

A very good vegetable dish, altho a bit oily. I’m not much of a veggie eater, but this dish was simple and delicious. Highly recommend.

Good dim sum

They have some of the best dim sum in the area. If you go on the weekend, watch out for the crowd. If it’s too crowded you can always check out Sam Woo’s across the street.

good dim sum

i’ve come here for the dim sum several times, and each time it’s been very good. it usually is very crowded during rush hour times, so be prepared to wait.

the inside isn’t anything fancy, but it’s a nice & simple ambience appropriate for a casual family outing. (they have large tables to accomodate big families.)

if you’re looking for dim sum in the central irvine area, give this place a try.

I had dinner here with my auntie as she told...

I had dinner here with my auntie as she told me it is one of the better Chinese restaurants south of SGV. She was right. They are known for their dim-sum sadly we were too late, nevertheless, the food was good, service was great and they were friendly.

The restaurant is pretty big, with lots of round tables. Ample parking, it is in a plaza shared with Sam Woo, but dine here at China Garden not there….

We didn’t wait long, probably 5 minutes as there were only two of us.

Egg plant in Szechuan Sauce

hhhm I love eggplants and this one is drowned in their Szechuan Sauce but it’s delicious.

Pan Fried Noodles with Beef

Also very tasty, just the perfect crunchiness with the sauces on top.


I love water spinach and theirs were seasoned and steamed perfectly.

Good weekend dimsum!

For the cheaper, less pretentious version of Dimsum (ahem Capital Seafood) come to China Garden, best place in Irvine IMO for some good ol’ dimsum. The weekends are usually really crowded so expect a ~20 minute wait. Dimsum food is good and plentiful, EXCEPT I am giving this place 4 stars because they ran out of chicken feet out of all things! Service is good; very well deserved dim sum eat.
