Shameful behavior – Seated by host /child and then no one returned. Meanwhile a Chinese family came, was served tea, places set and appetizers brought. The Asian couple behind us waited a long time after us, were seated, served water and places set. Still no one came to our table until we eventually walked out. I can only conclude after being treated in a similar fashion at the Chinese grocery store next door that they just don't want to serve us whiteys.
Most authentic we have found in the area – We are originally from the Boston area and were used to heading into China town for dim sum. We have been living here Pinellas county for 10 years and could only find one restaurant that served dim sum and they closed many years ago. We tried T.C. Choy's and the food was good but a bit pricey. Then our friend (who is Chinese) took us to China Yuan and we were hooked. They offer many dim sum items, authentic Chinese dishes as well as the standard items you would find at any Chinese restaurant. The prices are reasonable especially the dim sum items that range in price from $2.25-$3.50... you can't beat that!
My favorite! – The place may not look grand but food is great! I was refered to this place by my friend and after the first try I fell in love with the food! Their Roast Duck and Roast Pork are definitely a must try one! The seafood is fresh! Especially the lobster and fish. I love the Young Chow Fried Rice and the Salty Fish with chicken fried rice too. Oh I could go on and on about the food that I like in this place.
This is a place that went crowded as people celebrate Chinese New Year (especially to special order the Roast Duck... yumm) ... So what can I say more about how authentic the food is?
