An absolute gem

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... read more

This family run Chinese Restaurant has an extensive menu and the quality of the food and service is excellent. The Combination Appetisers and Crispy Duck are particularly nice. The Yung Chow Fried Rice is light and full of meat and prawns, and a great meal in itself. The decor in the restaurant is also very conducive to enjoying a chinese... More

Expensive, small portions and a bit of seasoning in the food would be helpful, but the food was very nice. The 10% student discount is heavily advertised, but only in the small print does it indicate it is not available on a friday. We were seated and told in error that the discount was applicable to our friday meal. On... More

This review is false. There is no cctv in our restaurant. We recall this customer on the Friday evening, who caused a lot of disruption towards other guests in the restaurant and demonstrated bullying behaviour towards members of staff which is highly inappropriate. We do not accept this in our establishment. Thank you. Manager More

This restaurant was recommended to me by my hotel and is situated on Bangor High Street close to the Rail Station. It is also a Hotel but this review is only for the restaurant. You can book – and at busy times it is advisable – but this is a larger than average Chinese. I had just a short wait... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Bangor and I always come here. The food is outstanding and delicious. There are plenty of choices and it all appears extremely fresh. The staff are so polite and attentive. Even when I went on my birthday they stuck candles in my dessert and sang happy birthday. Some people may feel it’s overpriced but... More

The food is clean and healthy with lots of vegetables - and very tasty. I had king prawns and vegetables on a bed of crispy noodles with a very good sauce. Everything seemed very fresh and the service was excellent. Highly recommend.

My grand-daughter has been successful in one of her projects, with excellent results. We were invited to celebrate. The atmosphere was excellent, with a valuable contribution by the owner and his family. The food was excellent, very tasty and of a high standard.

Went to this restaurant on Easter Sunday we have been before but a long time ago and we were very impressed by the staff especially as our waitress could speak Welsh too (better than me) she took time to recommend dishes and her choices were fantastic, will definitely be using The Garden Chinese again.
