As a birthday treat me and my family decided to go out for a meal to our usual favourite restaurant only to be very disappointed by the lack of interest and politeness from staff. Right from the start there was absolutely no manners we were served our soup without being given or even offered bread that is usually given with... More

The restaurant was busy tonight although I am not sure why. We waited 30 minutes to have our order taken without even being given some prawn crackers to keep us going. The chicken and cashew nuts was tasteless at best although the lemon chicken was not too bad. Staff were curt and showed no interest in our enjoyment or not... More

I visited New City with my boyfriend on a recent visit to Ayr. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and my first impressions were good. The meal was lovely, however, I ordered chicken and mushrooms for my main course and was presented with beef and mushrooms. I explained I hadn't ordered the beef and the mistake was promptly corrected. However, staff... More

Lovely Chinese food and great lunch deals. Wouldn't go to any other Chinese restaurant in Ayr, and there's plenty to choose form. Spoiled for choice. Staff are nice as well!

We went here the other day and were given the lunch time special menu of three courses for £7.50. This looked great, but I did immediately notice there were a lot of items with supplements, including chicken & sweetcorn soup, which I found strange. I opted for the cream of chicken soup and this was nice. The chicken in it... More

This was my first time trying here with family and I will never be back. The staff especially the owner need to put a smile on their face...... The food is well below average. Had to laugh at dessert as seen a table on way to toilet full of cakes from Iceland !!!!! 3 courses for £7.50 , would have... More

The first impression of the restaurant was really amazing and it looked fabulous. The food was good although the first course wasn't very big but it was delicious, the second course was nice and the third course was yummy. The price is a little bit expensive for the quantity in the courses although it isn't too bad. I was eating... More

Had an issue here previously when my son was only a baby and tried it again when in with my husband. We went in at the start of lunchtime (all three of us) and the waitress was very unfriendly. Made to sit in the front tables near the door away from all the other customers. The older man that works... More
