I went because this was rated one of the top places for Dim Sum in Miami. WHen we got there at 1:40 on a Sunday afternoon there were only 2 tables of people in the whole restaurant.
We were seated right away, then waited forever and no one even came to our table to give us water. So since we didn't see any Dim Sum on the menu or and Dim Sum carts, and we didn't get any service, and the prices for the food were very high for a lunch, we left.

Had dinner with the family of six on a Friday night. The restaurant is located in a condo/ hotel building located on Biscayne Bay just north of downtown Miami. At 8:00pm the restaurant was only half full. Drinks were serviced and we ordered: Peking Duck, Shrimp, Steamed Fish, Chicken, and fried rice. The duck was prepared perfectly and the presentation was outstanding. All of the dishes were delicious. We had a little fried rice and duck to take home. If you are looking for a nice place to enjoy Chinese/ Asian food you will not be disappointed. Will definitely come again.

The hot & sour soup and appetizers were 5 star! The restaurant has a patina - and could use a bit of updating given its pricing and downtown location. The General Tso's Chicken and the Black Bean Shrimp were both listed on the menu as spicy items, but were extremely bland. The prices here for Chinese are over the top. The manager says they have a dim sum menu that is available for dinner any time. Based on this visit, I think we'll try that the next time.

Typical Cantonese. Food was mostly tasty but not great. Service was rushed with a feeling that the servers were slave labor locked in dungeons between shifts. Plates and silverware seemed 85% clean - probably rinsed and not watched. Expensive for what it is. That written, salty and tasty.

Tony Chan's has been around a long time. Their chefs know how to prepare their menu in a very solid fashion.

Three items that we find always excellent are the hot and sour soup, peking duck and the dynasty fish.

First of all the waiter had no idea what Open Table was. Did not bring us the menu for Dim Sum and the quality and taste of the food was awful. Waiter was rude and arrogant. The combination of bad food and bad service says " Do not ever Return".

We had a very early dinner here at 4:30 upon arriving from Jacksonville prior to our evening session at the Miami Tennis Open. The garlic eggplant and mixed vegetable selections really hit the spot as did the shrimp hot and sour soup. Very attentive service.

We were very disappointed with the food. Every thing was bland and tasteless. No ginger, garlic or other flavors. All of us said that we would not return. Also, right next to the restaurant is a large room in which there was a wedding taking place. Because of the very loud music and the flashing strobe lights, we could hardly have a conversation. I have never, ever, had such bland Chinese food.

We decided to dine here as it was very difficult to find a recommended Chinese restaurant in Miami. The concierge at the Marriott and the taxi drivers could not recommend anything. So we searched online and Google and Opentable showed Tony Chan's Water Club as a recommended restaurant for Chinese food. Since it was located in the same building as the Doubletree Hilton, I figured how could we go wrong.

However, I was very wrong. I was not impressed by food, price, nor service. I'm not saying that the food was bad. It was average. The price was exceptionally high for the ambiance. The service was average, very courteous and helpful, but not at the level of 5 stars.

I find it very difficult to believe the reviews - or maybe my standards are too high for Chinese Cuisine.

Despite all the hype it was very average and uninspiring. The good news is that it is not horribly overpriced and the service was respectable. The special thick soup was good as were the dumplings but it was downhill from there with the main entrees. Probably the screaming child near us did not help my responses here. Management just ignored the situation (like what baby are you talking about?). Definitely convenient to the Marriott just not that terrific and not worth going back to.

In their nearly 20 years of operation, Tony Chan's remains the vanguard of exquisite Chinese cuisine. It may cost slightly more than run-of-the-mill Chinese, but is well worth paying more. I still delight in the "windowed" kitchen, where diners can watch Tony Chan's chefs in action. In addition to the entertainment value, it is reassuring to observe the immaculately kept kitchen.

I had brought in guests from New York and one of them was vegetarian we ordered veg and it came with pork . Shocking the waiter said he wud give us credit but did not. Our guest was vegetarian due to religious reasons and this dos not go well with him
Secondly your waiters do not know what a single malt and my guest had to go to the bar and ask for it
Thirdly we had to sit 45 minutes for our dinner and to be honest it did not go well with our guests and I don't think I will recommend anyone nor come back
I was promised a credit on the bill but with my guests present I did not make an issue about it. Pla comment

My first trip there, and somewhat what I expected. Very old school Chinese; attentive, but not totally pro, service. Interior a bit dingy, way too bright, the kind of place that was somewhat modern 20 years ago, with few changes visible. That said, while the soup appetizer was forgettable, the Peking duck was very good. We might return when in the mood for that style of "Chinese."

Best Chinese food in Miami. Great selection of dishes. Never disappointed with a meal after many times ordering different things. Service could be a little more friendly, but it's not bad. Withe the Restaurant.com voucher ($50 off $100), it's a great deal on top of that. Even without that, the prices aren't ridiculous and I will come back either way.

The food is prepared in full view is their demo kitchen. Every item on the menu that I have tried has tasted good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, it is that good.

I ate here a few years ago and didn't think much of it. While attending the nearby Boat Show, I decided to give it another shot. This threadbare, depressing restaurant really failed to please once again. My experience started out badly when I ordered the Szechuan shrimp, the first item listed under seafood. My server told me point blank not to order it. He said most customers don't like it. I asked why, and he couldn't give me an answer. He said people just don't like it. He then proceeded to recommend another shrimp dish that was $8.00 more expensive. Destined to have spicy shrimp, I finally gave in and ordered that. It was fine, but nothing exciting. My seat next to the messy kitchen was no attraction, either. What a disappointment.

Have been to Tony Chan's 6 or 8 times over the past 10 years and usually enjoyed a great meal there. Four of us went the other night after not having been there for a year or two. The service was extreemly slow and unatenntative the whole night. The meals were tastless. When we brought it to the attention of the waiter and manager we were told to order our food differently the next time...if you decide to come back. We felt belittled and and will probably never go back. Can't figure out how a nornally great restaurant could do so little to please customers.
