Good Chinese Food

My family have been coming here for year since it opened. In that time it has been good and bad depending on the chefs. We came here for lunch on Tuesday for dim sums. Food is not cheap but it is tasty. However do what Chinese people do and order a couple of big plates and smaller dishes and... read more

Not in a salubrious area but don't let that put you off- we went for lunch on a Saturday as a party of 11. About 4 different dim sum and three large platters of seafood/meats and noodles cost £10 per person and the food was fantastic. As my Cantonese speaking friend ordered, I couldn't actually tell you what many of... More

If you live in Glasgow or visiting then you must give Chinatown Restaurant a try. It is located just under the M8 at Cowcaddens right next to Stow College. Staff are very friendly and food fantastic prices are a little higher than your average chinese restaurant but you will see why when you go it is worth every penny. Dim... More

Our visit today was as close to yum Cha perfection as I think it's possible to get this far west. Had a selection from both the dim sum and Al a carte menus and each dish was unique and incredible. No where we have ever been has been close in term of flavour, freshness, service and value. No where else... More

I was looking for Chinatown for a few days and all of a sudden this fantastic complex complete with pagoda was unearthed. The restaurant was superb, good quality Cantonese at a very reasonable price.

Loved this place for years. Authentic food superbly presented. Dim Sum on a Sunday afternoon is out of this world. Very child friendly too. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

First visit to Chinatown on a Sunday afternoon for dim sum. Restaurant was very busy with local Chinese families, but despite there not being a two seated table available, I was given a table for four. Dim sum menu was extensive and the food was very tasty. I had 4 different dim sum - fried squid, char siu bun, king... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years and while the atmosphere remains friendly and relaxed, the quality of service seemed to be slipping, the food a little bland, and maybe I was just unlucky here but the bottled lager (pre-poured into glass) seem flat and the after meal coffee close to ghastly. It's a pity... More
