My family has been going to Tin Sing since they opened up in '64. When they closed last year we've been trying to find another place like it. After many restaurants in various cities, we have still not found a replacement. For me, Tin Sing was the best Chinese Restaurant in our area, and I truly hope they reopen in another place here in the South Bay.

When I was little, my parents took us to Tin Sing every weekend. We've been there with other friends and family and had many parties there. Over the years, their food quality went down and with so many other Chinese places to go to, we stopped going. I hardly go to Gardena anymore, but if I drive down Redondo Beach Blvd., I think of that place and the good times I had with my family.

I too am interested to know why the restaurant closed in 2005?

It was always busy and the food great.

Why was the parking lot sold?

My family and friends really miss Tin Sing. It was a staple in our lives. It would be absolutely wonderful if they were to return to the southbay. The egg rolls were the best ever hands down!

I haven't eaten at any Chinese Restaurant since the Tin Seng closed. I can't find another other Canton restaurants locally. I wish they would come back somewhere. Maybe Torrance?

I think the best Chinese restaurant around is Szechwan in Lomita. On PCH and Oak Street.

Tin Sing had the most disgusting Chinese food in the South Bay. Greasy and utterly inedible. Good riddance!

I know the quality wasn't as good near the end but it was still better than anything left in Gardena or Carson. I can't find anyone who makes a good almond duck like Tin Sing did, original or old fashioned. The stuff at the New Far East was like cardboard and Hong Kong Garden and Paul's Kitchen in L.A. are only a touch better. Tin Sing also made a great pakkai (when it wasn't overcooked & dry). The sauce was killer. Hope it comes back in a new location but with the same quality they had back in the 60s & 70s.

I remember Tin Sing from years ago.. it was a great restaurant!! but, seeing that the the city has no tenants, and probably none in the near future, is great payback..

Good luck to the owners of Tin Sing, I hope you find a new place, in a new city to build your restaurant...

If Tin Sing reopens, I hope they find a new city....Gardena is a dump!!!

There is no replacement for that good Tin Sing American style Cantonese food. Good luck to the Tin Sing Family and thank you for so many years. Gardena needs change. The Tin Sing properites have been sitting vacant too long. The city missed the boat on turning down the Tin Sing restaurant. Make decisions for the community good.
