Really enjoyed the All You Can Eat style menu - everything is piping hot and cooked fresh. Food is of a good standard, especially the chicken wings to start and Pad Thai beef noodles for main. Only thing that has disappointed me in 3 visits were the Thai chicken strips, everything else has been really tasty!

Had a fab Banguet after the Races last Sunday party of 8. They kept asking if we wanted more dishes, what was nice about this restaurant is that it wasn't a self serve banquet.fresh dishes whenever you wanted more. definately be returning.

Starters very oily, best advice is to not order too many starters and concentrate on the main course. Main course tasty. Deserts a bit boring. Nice atmosphere.

The Slow Boat also do takeaway (for collection only) which again is beautiful food although a little expensive so only do the takeaway as... More

We were visiting chester and asked a taxi driver to take us to a chinese restaurant, we were pleased with this place. We chose salt n pepper ribs, &spring rolls to start, followed by borneo lamb & a mixed meat chow mein . Theres lots of Thai and malaysian dishes on the menu as well. The portions are quite large...

Came here for the Sunday banquet the food is amazing and so much of it, an all you can eat buffet but without having to leave your seat such a brilliant idea, very good value for the amount of food you get and a great atmosphere
