Just had a lovely meal here tonight. We found it through trip advisor and we are so glad we did. We both started with soups and it's the best Chicken and Sweetcorn soup I have ever tasted in a Chinese Restaurant. We then shared Ribs and Wantons both good. We finished with a Chicken Satay and a Mix... read more

Just had a 'perfect' meal at the Garden Hotel. Visited with a friend who had been a few weeks ago, she recommended that I tried it. I was not disappointed, the place is clean, the staff are friendly, attentative and knowledgable about the food that is served. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. That is all I ask when...

I visited here with two friends for dinner. We didn't have a reservation but were quickly shown to a table. The food arrived quickly and was fresh and delicious. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I would visit this restaurant again next time I'm in Bangor.

Just got back from a weekend away at the garden Cantonese. The location is great and the staff are lovely and most friendly. We reserved 3 rooms and every room was great and spotless.

Visited on a Saturday with the family. Staff efficient and very accommodating. Great choice on the menu, plenty to choose from - Chinese or Cantonese. The food itself was beautiful. Looking forward to going back....

I read the reviews prior to my visit and a lot of positive comments about the quality of their food even though pricey. We bought a few dishes but we thought it was ok but with the price you pay, there wasn't much in each dish. We went to a different takeaway nearby in the following days.

We choose this restaurant out of the many listed in Bangor and boy what a choice it proved to be. Our family of four was not disapointed with the food. All dishes were freshly cooked with flavours to die for. Service was polite and friendly, it is a real shame we live over 300 miles away as we would definitely... More

The food and service in this restaurant is first class. My wife has coeliac disease and cannot eat any gluten based meals, but the staff are really knowledgeable about this and recommend accordingly. It makes such a difference to have confidence in what you are ordering and eating. We regularly travel 90 minutes to eat here due to the warm... More

Visited this restaurant tonight (27/6/15). We used to go here when it first opened, but had not been for a while, probably because so many other eating places have opened up. I must say that this was an absolutely first class experience. The food was excellent, I had the Peking hot and sour soup to start, my wife had the... More
