We've eaten here a few times prior to seeing shows at the Hippodrome and New Alexandra, and have been quite satisfied. This time, however, things were really poor in every respect. My glass was filthy, service was slow and food quality simply not good enough. The pancakes for the crispy duck were just awful. Grey and very thin so they... More

Not a bad restaurant. I went there for an event and food was provided. This was lovely however I thought it was a little expensive. The decor was not too bad and it was comfortable.

Although we hadn't reserved a table, we found the Chung Ying Garden extremely welcoming. It turned out to be perfect for our need, being so close to the Hippodrome. The dishes were all excellent: we ordered a set meal for two, and found there was too much. Service was good, and timings fine.

Had expected to give this restaurant 5 stars, but on this occasion, it was not as good as usual. Having visited multiple times over the years, I believe this is one of the best Chinese restaurants in England, certainly in Birmingham. This time, the service was a bit haphazard, the food a little indifferent - for instance, Yeung Chow rice... More

Had no idea where to eat so decided on here by chance. Very busy already at 1.00pm which was encouraging! The food was lovely, the service great and overall a great experience.

We booked for lunch on Sunday as part of our visit to the Chinese new year celebrations. Considering its probably their busiest weekend of the year there was no waiting for our table and the staff were constantly on hand to take orders and look after us. We were eating with our young son who always eats well here... The... More

Been dining here for many years which is a good enough review alone, ideal for all occasions - business, socialising or family (kid friendly)great atmosphere, efficient friendly service and most important food fabulous. Both modern and traditional cuisine. Clearly you pay a little more than alternative restaurants but definitely value for money when everything taken into consideration.

Always pop in here when I have work in Brum, consistently good food, I especially love the dumplings, inexpensive and very tasty! My usual lunch is 4 portions of dumplings with some green tea :) also the staff here are very friendly and extremely attentive.
