Best Chinese Restaurant in Ipswich

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.

If you are looking for a meal that takes you away from the frozen meal or ready made fake food.... come to Trongs. The meal is plentiful and whether you are a veggie or a carnivore they have delicious treats. We visit with four people and a variety of noodles, mains, soups, etc... EVERYTHING is super, fantastic, and awesome! If... More

Trongs is one of the best restaurants in Ipswich, the set menus are especially lovely. My husband has a severe nut allergy & the waiter was excellent with him and knew to ask the chef not use certain oils to cook with etc. A really well run family business with a friendly atmosphere

They managed to fit 15 of us in and we all had a wonderful time. Great atmosphere, very helpful and attentive staff. The food here was beautiful as always. We ordered more than we could eat but would all love to go again

I've been visiting this restaurant for several years but this is my first review as I am fairly new to trip advisor. Best Chinese food in Ipswich without a doubt. Maybe slightly more expensive than some others, but you get what you pay for. The food is delicious, and always served freshly cooked. Wine is reasonably priced with a good... More

This is my second review of Trongs and again it is the best in Ipswich and would stand comparison with any other I have eaten at (in the UK). Service is good and attentive and the food well presented varied and flavoursome. I should visit more often.
