I've visited Hong Kong six times, and China four times, and this is the most authentic Chinese food I've eaten outside of those places! The restaurant was full of Chinese diners, which speaks volumes. The staff are friendly and efficient, and for food this delicious, it is very reasonably priced. The red house wine (French) is very good, too. This... More

We love to come here when we can. We think the good is well above average, and must recommend the chili sea bass! Excellent service each time, and suggest you try one of the two lunch menus. But don't forget to come back for dinner!! :)

We have used this Restaurant many many times over the past ten years and it has never let us down. We went there with another couple last night for our Christmas get together, as we do every year, and yet again had a lovely evening. Even though it was completely packed, the service was friendly, very un-rushed and the food... More

I last reviewed the ToC in 2011 and have eaten there many times since. This year the place really has started to slip. The food is still good but its not as good as previous years and the service has become unwelcoming and slow . The decoration is also looking pretty tired and needs an overhaul. I still use the...

although the Taste of China is literally just around the corner from us we have not been there for years as we did not enjoy the first experience. We were invited to a meal there tonight and sadly our views on the place have not changed. The food is decidedly average in quality and quantity and cost far too much.... More

i was part of a big group booking. It should have been a lovely evening but there just wasn't enough food. Once we left the restaurant we came home and had to eat again. The restaurant took a good price per head for the food and it was a massive group of 75 people. There was barely enough food to... More

We have eaten here twice recently - once as a takeaway and once in the restaurant. Food was good on both occasions. It's not the best Chinese food I've ever had but have had a lot worse. On both occasions there were quite a few Chinese people eating there so that's probably a good recommendation. Service is not great but... More
