First visit to this restaurant with friends for lunch and the service was so poor that I will never be back. We were rushed through every course with very poor customer skills and at the end were told kitchen was closed at two fifteen and we could only have cold sweets. The attitude of the waitresses was incredibly bad and... More

I have tried to contact you to find out some details but not had a reply. I'm sorry you felt rushed, most of our lunchtime customers only have one hour lunch break so do not mind a quick service but we are more than happy for you to take your time if you had let us know. The kitchen does... More

Visited for first time on saturday and very impressed. It was a place that I had meant to visit for years but never got round to. Lovely food, very attentive staff and nice surroundings.

We visited on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was very quiet, so service was fast and friendly. We ordered 4 different starters (1 each) and shared rather than have the sharing platter as at £8.80 per head it seemed rather over priced, having asked what was on it. All of the starters were superb. The honey chicken wings especially.... More

Just had a really great dinner here with a colleague. Great service, fast and attentive without being over-bearing. I had salt and pepper squid as a starter (a favourite "benchmark" dish...). Really good... Personally, I'd have liked a wee bit more chilli & garlic but know that's not everyone's taste. Followed by Crispy Aromatic Lamb from the chef's specials... Highly... More

Visit here fairly regularly for Saturday lunch and a nice 2 course lunch costs £9.50 and has done for some time. We had not been for a while and noticed when we returned a few months ago that a half carafe of house wine had gone up by £1 to £9.95.This is what we usually order without looking at the... More

We do try to keep our prices low and have not increased our prices on the food for 3 or 4 years now. As you know, inflation on alcohol does increase every year and this is reflected in the increase on our drinks. Prices are clearly stated on our drinks menus and the price of a half carafe of wine...

Went to the Amber Regent for Dim Sum they were nice and I enjoyed them but wouldn't say that they were any better than elsewhere in Glasgow. The restaurant was busy but there was not much of an atmosphere. We had vegetables in an oyster sauce which was very nice,noodles and rice. We had to keep asking for Soya Sauce... More

Definitely expensive normally. However they have a "half price" all mains offer all nights that ranges from all night to prior to 7pm depending on day of the week. Visited prior to 7pm Friday. Enjoyed 4 mains shared by 3 (including quarter duck), drink each and rice for little over £40. Food was very good in lovely surroundings, with nice... More

The food here is wonderful. Service and friendliness is rather inconsistent. Not exactly cheap but I dont mind paying for good food. The lack of a smile by lady who dealt with my bill was not a good lasting impression. In conclusion, not as good as The Regent in Stirling in my opinion.
