Asian Restaurants 2023

China Garden

China Garden


December 2023

One of my favourite Chinese restaurants outside of China Town in Brighton… a must go to place if you love real Chinese food.


Chinese broccoli in garlic ( gar lan). Simple but amazingly tasty and healthy side dish.

Special fried rice is always good and not too salty.

Aubergine and tofu hotpot in black bean sauce.

Beautiful dish with so many flavours, it will keep you wanting more… NOT on the main menu so you need to ask for the special Chinese menu.

My favourite!


Sizzling chicken in garlic cooked with spring onions & ginger… arrived sizzling.

A divine dish!

Good quality meat and popular.

I could have had more chicken!

Number One Thai


November 2023

The restaurant aims to give you a totally authentic Thai experience.

They also offer delivery as well as dining in.

Steamed Fish in ginger & spring onions. Nice and moist and loads of flavour. Fish cooked perfectly and can be cooked whole and not filleted if asked for.

I suggest a whole sea bass to give more flavour and tenderness.

Very friendly restaurant and nice ambience.

Meads, Eastbourne

December 2023

The tastefully decorated interior sets the stage for an unforgettable dining experience, whether you're having a leisurely lunch or an intimate dinner.

For my visit I tried the following dishes:

Tofu with Stuffed Prawns

Tofu with stuffed prawns - amazing dish with so many flavours, easy to eat and healthy.

Special Fried Rice

Special Fried Rice - simple and delicious side.

Crispy Noodles

Crispy Noodles - a popular Cantonese dish with mixed meats - with a crunch as you bite. So many flavours!

Other dishes tried:


Braised shin of beef slow cooked with vegetables and five spice - a northern China home dish brought to Meads Village!

Delicious scallops with Chinese vegetables in a light garlic sauce. Amazing and perfectly cooked.

Braised tofu hotpot with vegetables. No stir fry but healthy nutritious authentic Chinese food to make your mouth water!

A very enjoyable dining experience, so much so that I will be visiting again!

Sea Palace

Sea Palace


November 2023

Visited the Sea Palace in Amsterdam which is the largest floating restaurant in Europe and definitely a place to go and experience Chinese Cuisine.

Cha Sui

Wow, the Roast Pork (Cha Sui) is succulent and just melts in your mouth.

Pricy at £22.50 but worth the experience & delight.

Must book for evenings.


Served by little robots to add to the fun as you order via the app.

Banquet Chinese

Colchester, Essex

September 2023

Banquet Chinese endeavours to re-create traditional flavours enjoyed by generations in the rural areas of Asia.

Contemporary Cantonese dishes and Dim Sum take centre stage.

The dishes shown below are the ones that I experienced on my visit.

Chilli Pepper & Squid

Firstly, chilli and pepper served with baby squid - a fiery dish that is so soft to eat. Perfectly cooked. A great starter!

Salted Fish

Salted fish and chicken, mixed with tofu - amazing on the taste buds - a dish to die for!

Scallops & Squid

Finally, Scallops and squid combination. Delicious with chinese mushrooms and light on the palate.

Altogether mouth watering food.

Will definitely visit again when in the area!
