Average decor restaurant. Food is very good if you know what you're ordering - beware of the set menu if you don't know what's on it! Order from the main menu and the food is good. Service is hospitable.

First thing to say is that the price is relatively cheap. However, the food is really terrible. Furthermore I am really hacked off with the attitude of the staff. Amongst other things, I ordered satay Beef, I got curry Beef, I let the waitress know the error and she 'pretended' not to understand and... If you're looking for cheap food,... More

On our visit we found very attentive and professional staff, fair quality house wine and the choice and quality of food on offer is excellent. Combine this with reasonable prices, it was a very enjoyable evening and we would recommend anyone interested in Chinese to give the Symphony a visit and judge for yourself. We will be going back for... More

The name doesn't suggest Chinese, but that's what it was and the Satay Prawn starter and Sweet and Sour Prawn (Hong Kong style) main were as good as the best I've had anywhere. Don't let the internal decor put you off - it doesn't do the food justice!
