I love my Chinese food and hands down Macau is the best Chinese about. I highly recommend it, I will be back very soon.

Was part of a party of 30 hillwalkers who had booked a banquet waaaaay in advance. So arrived to restaurant which was buzzing. But tables booked waaaay in advance weren't ready. But they didnt keep us waiting too long while tables were being set. So, our party paid the £26 each in cash in advance for our pre-booked banquet. I... More

We were a party of 30 hill walkers (Belfast Dynamos) on our annual meal night. Got set menu, I added the specified service charge for groups, collected & paid in advance on the night. Had seen a 'recycling' charge of £2.50 on bottles on the menu which states: 'BYO. Recycling charge £2.50.' Thought this was that we had to take... More

My family and I have been going to Macau for years. I cannot recommend a better restaurant (Chinese or not) to eat consistently amazing, fresh food. Favorite dishes are salt and chilli prawns (or salt and chilli squid), the Peking ribs are like none I have ever tasted! My personal favourite is steamed dover sole - the fish is always... More

As someone else said I am not a lover of Chinese food either (at least the N.Irish brand). This was very good. I had the roast salted cod with garlic and chilli - it was excellent - my daughter had the chicken fried rice and loved it. It's BYOB which is great though you can end up drinking a bottle... More

Really decent Chinese food with lovely service and there's also an old fashioned vibe to Macau. BYOB and good vegetarian options (deep fried aubergine and bean curd dishes included). I'd especially recommend the vegetables in satay sauce with boiled rice. Great for a tranquil evening out.

I'm not usually a fan of Chinese food, I usually feel sick and greasy after but Macau is one I will be happy to go to, it's a favourite of my family's. The food is fresh and tasty, better quality fish and meat than some Chinese restaurants nearby. It is expensive but the portions are huge so in my opinion... More

Love the chilli squid, char Sui pork and duck but best ever are the noodles.. If you're vegetarian the oak choi and garlic always good as is aubergine dish. Staff very friendly and service is excellent
