Tropical Chinese

7991 Bird Rd
Miami, FL 33155

Known for their dim sum has been serving up traditional Chinese fare since 1984.  Dishes are servd family style and Tropical Chinese has an open style kitchen.  Not sure what to get.  We suggest starting off with the pan friend dumplings and then checking out the Emerald Prawns, the General Tso's Chicken or the Szechuan Beef; all three are stand out dishes.  Prices are a little on the high side but the food is worth it.
