I live in the neighbourhood so frequent Happy Gathering as often ... without making it a routine !! Indeed as stated by another reviewer the place could do with a bit of a make over ... but there are certainly NO Compromises on the Food Quality -- Which is Excellent !!

Visited on Saturday night as a group of 6, I have been a few times before over the years. There were couples and friends dining at the restaurant but it was mostly large family groups. We had veg spring rolls and pork spring rolls to start. In order of preference we ordered beef in black bean sizzling, chicken in black... More

Been going here for years and never disappointed with the food - and I'm fussy! However getting very tired in there decor wise. They need to spend some money on freshening the place up. Come on Happy Gathering! Brighten the place up!

Popped in yesterday before heading to a gig. Great food and staff were attentive. There's lots of staff there so maybe could be little more organised and employ less. Food was top notch and even though it's been years since I've been there, service was still very good I'll be going back a lot sooner!

Visited this restaurant with friends. Was very disappointed with the slow service and quality of food. Ordered the set menu plus duck with pancakes, I have never had such dry, tough duck ever. Even the coffee is cheap and nasty. The whole place is in need of redecoration. I would never return or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I am not a regular visitor of Chinese restaurants but do enjoy the cuisine. I visited the Happy Gathering with my family and some friends and we were all impressed with it. We sat upstairs at a round table at the very back of the restaurant. This table is elevated so you can see all of the other diners and... More

Haven't been here for years, went for lunch with my husband & kids days ago. Very poor costumer sevice especially the manager called "Martin". We were given 3 different menus, the 3rd menu needs to be ticked & should correspond to the 2nd menu with the photos of foods. I went to ask this manager for help or assistance as... More

Have been a loyal customer of this restaurant for many years and absolutely love the food and always find the staff pleasant and Martin the manager is always helpful, friendly and attentive. However…we came here for a meal last week and whilst the food was superb (to be expected) the decor really has begun to impact on the dining experience.... More

We often meet friends here and have lunch. Lunchtime menu is £6.25 for 2 courses from set menu and it's amazing! I have tried many of the dishes and I have never been disappointed. If you cannot finish you meal, they will box it up for you to take home, perfect! We will return again soon
