We were told this was the best Chinese restaurant in Ipswich so gave it a try - we have been back several times since - the food is some of the best Chinese we have had and the staff have always been pleasant and attentive If we have any criticism its just that it gets so very busy at times...

Having read the positive reviews I really thought I was in for a great culinary experience... Errr... Wrong! In a nutshell what they serve is bog standard Chinese take out grub with knobs on, all at a premium price. This is typified by the gloopy sauces which swamp everything. The wanton soup was decidedly average. The chicken broth was more... More

My title might sound a bit OTT but seriously this place is the tops. I've eaten there many times and last week I went with 7 mates. We left the staff to choose our meals, they check on allergies and away we went. Every dish was cooked fresh and was excellent. The fact it's full every night and weekend bookings... More

What can I say........ absolutely amazing restaurant. One little bit of advise, don't sit near the window on a cold night if drafts aren't your thing.

I have visited Trongs 4 or 5 times and the food and service has always been outstanding. On my last visit I shared a set menu for 2. The choice was excellent and the portions were plentiful for two.

We were going to the Theatre so needed an early booking, we rang at lunchtime and they let us order our food then, so when we arrived at 6pm it was ready within minutes of us sitting down. Great quality food especially enjoyed the crispy duck and the scallops. Very friendly staff reasonably priced food and wine. Definitely going back... More

Trongs is a small friendly restaurant, and is always busy - normally you have to book a little way in advance - but it is worth it. Without doubt, the best Chinese eat-in restaurant in Ipswich. Varied menu - I have eaten there many times and never been disappointed.

Another very enjoyable meal for a birthday get together. First class service as usual. Food was prompt, and extremely tasty reminding us why we love Trongs so much. Great opportunity to introduce our friends to one of the best Chinese restaurants around. Would highly recommend.
