Further Information

Paradise Garden has been dishing up delicious Cantonese and Chinese dishes on Whitburn Bents Road for quite some time now, and a loyal local following attests to its high quality and superb value. With a prime beachside spot in Seaburn, Paradise Garden entices passers-by easily enough, but they usually have to be lucky – or smart, and book ahead – to nab a spot for Paradise Garden’s 3-course set lunch and evening dinner seatings, because the word is out all over Sunderland that this is a place to enjoy lovingly prepared Chinese food for incredible value.

From wan ton soup and chicken fried rice to vegetables and black bean sauce, plenty of firm Chinese favourites appear on the menu. However, you should take the chance to try some more intriguing meals available at Paradise Garden in Seaburn, particularly some of their traditional Cantonese specialties. You shouldn’t leave without at least one at the table trying the elaborate birds nest dishes (shredded potato baskets), and our choice would be that with sliced chicken Cantonese style. The range of sizzling hot plate dishes should also not be missed, and the specialty curries (king prawns, beef or chicken) here on Whitburn Bents Road are a major departure from the soups and stews more commonly found among Sunderland’s representatives of Chinese cuisine.

Staff lovely and accommodating, we took our 3 year old who intended to eat from our food but they made extra effort for him to have a proper plate and didn't feel like he had his own food etc. And the food was very tasty and served timely, didn't feel rushed. Great sea views too. Will be back.

A really friendly restaurant with very helpful staff with excellent food. My family have been coming to this restaurant for years and never yet had anything but a pleasant experience each time. This is the first time I have used this booking system and have found no fault with it so will be using it again next time to book in to the Paradise Gardens Restaurant in the future. Very pleased.

The food is exquisite, the service is second to non and the prices are extremely fair. I love this this place. They bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your evening. We have been going here for 30 plus years now and will continue, cannot recommend it enough. !!!

The food was good but the atmosphere was a bit weird. The place itself looked like it could do with a little updating. It looked like they had over booked as we had about a half hour wait for our table. No complaints made as it was new year so we expected it to be busy and the quality of the food more than made up for the wait.

The staff are always welcoming and friendly and the food delicious. Also very reasonably priced. We had a 3 course meal with extra sides and drinks and it came to £48 which was an absolute bargain

We were disappointed out favourite dish fillet of steak in sechuan sauce has changed. Tasted nothing like it used to. Sauce was awful. Everything else lovely. But we can't believe they would change the sauce on such a winning dish.

Food perfectly cooked, interesting choices, and served in a timely manner. Decor is a little dated and drab but certainly worth additional visits in the future.

It was a nice night but wasn't an awful lot to eat on the menu for three people couples and menus for four look a lot better portion wise. Not sure if we would go again.
