A comfortable traditional Chinese restaurant in the City. Attentive staff and good service. Food was very good, Cantonese without any silly 'twists' or 'fusion' nonsense. I asked for a dish that wasn't on the menu and the helpful waitress organised it without any fuss or bother. Nice touch. A bit pricy but to be expected in the middle of Glasgow.

Amber Regent was recommended by a work colleague and didn't disappoint, food was varied and tasty, staff were friendly and efficient, would definitely recommend. Tuesday night and the place was full, always a good sign.

Went of recommendation and glad we did, Not too hard to find either. We went without making a reservation and defiantly advise you do. We were asked to wait for a table as they were busy but it wasn't long until we were seated. Food and service were first class and left very contented, the way Chinese meals should be... More

SUCH a treat. Lovely food. Impeccable service. Would happily *happily* come here again. If you like prawns, the crab claw starter is a must. The sauce is served in sculptured vegetables, (literally, like a dish) and they couldn't fit any more prawns into it. The Kung Po vegetables are delicious, the Peking chicken is smooth and slightly fruity, but the... More

As a regular to the Amber Regent it is in my opinion the best chinese in Glasgow! The staff, the service and the food are all amazing, I can't fault anything about it. My favourite dish is the curry but I have tried other dishes and haven't been disappointed hence why I come here often!

My daughter booked this restaurant for my birthday ,i found the staff quite abrupt and the food average , the food and service does not reflect the prices, not good value for money, i can eat at another Chinese restaurant for half the price ,wont eat there again.( £18.45 for chicken satay and rice)how can this price be justified.

Visited on a Thursday lunchtime with work colleagues. I had heard good recommendations about it so was looking forward to it. We ordered from the lunch menu - everyone loved the food but we ordered extra rice when the mains initially came. We eventually had to ask three times before we got the extra rice. Then when it came to... More
