Food was excellent, piping hot and served as you ordered.You start with soup, then the platter where you select 6 items off the list, this is brought on a huge plate, and when that went we had another 6 choices brought to the table, we then chose our main and were asked...

Visited the Slow Boat on a Friday evening, when the ‘all you can eat freshly cooked banquet’ is on. The restaurant isn’t very appealing at first sight as it’s part of a modern building, and is upstairs, so there’s little to see from ground level except an entrance leading to a flight of steps. However once we got to the... More

Popped into the Slowboat for a quick lunch, not many people in and it sadly lacked atmosphere. I haven't been to the Slowboat for ages as I usually go to their satellite restaurant "The Hot Wok" in Mold. The food in the Hot Wok is much better.

We took our 2 grandsons aged 8 and 5 but were just too late for the banquet therefore had to order off the main menu. We have had small portions with the banquet before so ordered what we thought would be the right amount. It was far more than we had anticipated, and should have ordered less. The service was...

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!
