Description: The Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant has been welcoming discerning diners to Bangor for 32 years and remains a heavenly haven of culinary excellence.Proprietor Andrew Lui established the Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant in 1981 following a chemical engineering degree and career, and is now a leading authority on Cantonese cooking. Working together with wife and Head Chef, Alice Lui who trained in Hong Kong and China.The restaurant is open seven days a week with a comprehensive a la carte menu from 2.00pm to 09.30pm. “There are three basic principles that I believe are essential for success,” Andrew adds.“The first is good cuisine; the second is good service and thirdly, a good environment.All our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked with the finest ingredients. The Garden Cantonese Restaurant goes a little step further by offering dishes to suit vegans, lacto vegetarians, ovo-lacto vegetarians and customers with nut, dairy or gluten allergies. We also understand the importance of healthy eating and use only the healthiest of oils and lean produce in our cuisine.

The Garden has an extensive a la carte menu so the food takes some time to choose. The staff are very friendly and patient and are happy for you to share your food to spread the joy. The Sizzling Szechuan Spicy Beef certainly sizzles and is spicy - lovely. An excellent meal.

A really enjoyable meal here on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of room for the two of us. Drink prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. We had prawn toast, chicken and sweetcorn soup and spicy chicken wings to start all of which were non-greasy and fresh. For mains we had beef satay and... More

Been eating there for years now and it's still the same quality although sometime some dishes are not hot enough, but apart from that, still good and good waiting staff some restaurant could learn from them.

Having been a coeliac for 30 years this is only the 2nd Chinese meal I have had in that time and by far the best. Alex was well informed as to what was gluten free and what wasn't. My 1st choice main course wasn't but it was easy to choose a 2nd which was. Don't be put off by the... More

We have been frequenting the Garden restaurant for nearly thirty years, so I guess it is time to post a review! In short, we have never had a bad meal here- it is always consistently good, without exception. The service is second to none, friendly, but unobtrusive. A great family run business. We have eaten at Chinese restaurants all over... More

I haven't been here for quite a while, it always used to be excellent! I was out with the kids for the day and thought we'd call in for a meal. It was excellent in every way, food and service 1st class!

No reservation tonight but were quickly found a table for 6 although were told we had to be out by 7. Our fault because we had no reservation, who needs a reservation in a Chinese restaurant at 6 o'clock of an evening? It was really full, lots of children but as we had a couple we didn't mind! The best... More
