Beautiful building but the food was very average, with tiny portions. Our party opted for the set meal A and set meal B and there was barely enough food to go around which is a shame as I was really looking forward to eating in such a great building. The quality if the food was not the best, and wasn't... More

We have eaten here several times over the last few years. It is always busy so unless you are happy to wait ( they do have a nice terrace which catches the evening sun) then book. Always get lovely food with distinctive flavours for each dish. It was so warm that we actually ate on the terrace which was lovely!

This has to be one of the best locations in the country, inside the historic Royal Baths, Harrogate. Trouble is, food can be inconsistent and sometimes disappointing. Very Stylish, very popular with a great traditional chinese menu plus new dishes. Fantastic surroundings and great bar as well. Seems better when busy, which is most of the time. Well worth a...

The only redeeming factor of this restraurant is the venue. It is set in the old turkish bath houses, with vaulted ceilings and incredible fixtures. I wasn't impressed by the food; very mediocre. Truthfully, you could find the same quality at The Imperial chinese restraunt just a block away at less than half the price. The staff was nice but... More

The food is fresh and plentiful, the venue is simply stunning, and the host Hak Ng, well, what a top man!! Had a great night with him, and got to watch the World Cup final in the splendid bar area. Thanks for your hospitality, we will be back soon.

My family brought me here to celebrate my birthday and it made it a very special experience. There were 14 in our party and we chose the £30 a head set menu. The food just kept coming and was delicious. It's a good way of tasting dishes you are not familiar with. The food was flavoursome and fresh tasting.

We also had dinner the other night as a party of four, yes the surrounding were superb, the dinning room furniture look wonderful but I have sat on church pews that were more comfortable. Initially the service was good but as the evening wore on and my back and then my bottom became numb I became all to aware that... More

Excellent set menu's to choose from, very good merlot wine, friendly outstanding service and grand décor and surroundings. The wash rooms were the best I've ever seen in a restaurant, and that shows great respect for customers.
