I've traveled extensively even to china and all over the states visiting Chinatowns in NY , San Francisco and its Chinese restaurants. In all my visits China Yuan consistently creates the most...

The wait was not good considering we are not of the nationality. This was my first time having dim sum. I must say the food was amazing. You can understand the menu and order different things to try. Oh my is all I can say. Once you tart it is hard to stop. I will be looking for places to... More

We've been coming to China Yuan for 4 years and will faithfully return for years to come. Each time we decide to try another Chinese restaurant in the Tampa-St. Pete area, we always look at each other afterwards and say, "next time, we're going back to China Yuan." Comfort food like no other. Thank you, China Yuan!

This has to be the best place I've ever been to for fresh Chinese food! Everything we ordered was delicious & they serve it family style. Staff was friendly & service was great. We can't wait to return next time we're in the Tampa area.

Orange beef was highly recommend, it didn't live up to the hype. Curry chicken was mediocre. Tried shrimp ball was good. Nothing special. But edible.

Although you order dim sum off a menu and not from carts, it is still tasty. The regular menu also has a lot of authentic Chinese cuisine, such as pork and preserved egg congee. Service is usually good also. I go back and forth between China Yuan and Yummy House.

Visiting Tampa Bay and seeking Chinese cuisine that included Dim Sum as an option. Reviews lead us to China Yuan. Arrived weekday around 1:30 and seated immediately. Wide selection of Dim Sum (order from kitchen, not a cart service). Was wanting a Dim Sum size or app size of honey walnut shrimp but was told that was not an option... More

I am originally from NY and finding an authentic Chinese restaurant in Tampa is hard to find. This place is as close as I can get, try the noodle dumpling roast pork soup awesome.

Was at the Zoo, got hungry so went here. Food was great, it looked so tasty that we over ordered but total was still reasonably cheap. If you are in area go and visit, you won't be disappointed

Lo Mein not Good! The noodles are paper thin a cross between rice & cellophane. Flavorless, not enough vegetables. Sweet n Sour Chicken was divine! Fried Rice was very good. It was worth a try One Time. For us we will stick with Yummy House. The Waitress was Fantastic!!!!!
