The Chinese food scene in Tampa is pretty standard and also rather mediocre at best. At China Garden on Dale Mabry in Carrollwood the story is very different. The ingredients tasted fresh, the preparation was very good, the service was excellent, and the digestibility of the meals was wonderful. I finally found our go-to place for fast Chinese cuisine after 4 years of searching our area. The spare ribs, however were lacking in meat, too much bone, but tasty. The spring rolls could have had more filling. The combo platter C13 and Mixed Veg 45 were high above what we've had thus far in Tampa.
