Hey Jeff,
You beat me and my husband down to Florida from Brooklyn by 27 years. We just moved into the Saint Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton. We are looking for a really good Chinese joint in the area that serves up delicious (as you call it) Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food. How about a name or two? By the way I’m a graduate of Midwood HS class of 67 and my husband graduated from Lincoln High School in 1964.

A number of you guys e-mailed about a “mom & pop Chinese” joint…China Gardens Restaurant, telling me about how good the food was, blah, blah blah. Anyway… last night I gave this joint a shot and “right-you-were”…the food is absolutely delicious.

China Gardens Restaurant is as you would expect, a “hole in the wall” located in a non-descript small South Florida shopping center. Guaranteed (unless you are a recent arrival from Mars) you know exactly what the decor is…what the menu is…and what the price-points and “specials” are.

Now let’s talk food…like I said before, DELICIOUS. Now for the official-results of my “taste test”….wonton soup (A), egg drop soup (A), hot & sour soup (A), egg roll (B+), pan fried dumplings (B+), sweet & sour pork (A+), chicken egg foo young (A), sizzling steak (A), shrimp with vegetables (A), shrimp with lobster sauce (A), roast pork fried rice (B+)…

Now I may-be going out on a limb here, but…my money says that China Gardens Restaurant is probably better than your favorite neighborhood-Chinese joint. Let me go one step further, China Gardens could “make it” in New York City’s Chinatown.

Based on my first outing, I will definitely be back for a second round.

China Gardens Restaurant is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 2pm-10pm.

  1. Based on your writeup we tried this evening and had food delivered. The food was very good but the white rice and mu shu pork pancakes were missing from the order.

    Ive eaten at China gardens 3x and have had takeout delivered twice. Their food is very good. Their problem is that in my case both times the delivered orders were missing ordered items. First time, no white rice. Second time, no pancakes for the moo shu pork. Both times the husband owner gave me an argument on the phone that i was wrong and the food had been delivered. Last night was the pancake episode. Last time doing business with this restaurant. Delicious food but another stupid owner who doesn’t know how to deal with his customers costs him business.

  3. Chiana Gardens is my favorite Chinese joint in Florida.
    Ive been a customer having eaten there or taking out for over 21 years.
    I learned years ago that when I takeout or have a delivery to check the order before I pay. In the very beginning before I started checking my orders, i found every so often that items were left out.
    Long story short, terrific food. Just check your to go orders before you leave the joint or let the delivery man leave.

    Excellent food.
    Husband and wife own the restaurant.
    The wife is an absolute doll, the husband is a flaming asshole who thinks that every person who has a complaint is trying to rip him off and get something for free.
    As I first mentioned, dexcellent food.
