We went there for a birthday meal and was not disappointed. The service was excellent the food came out hot along with the plates. After speaking to the waiter did not realise they had been in business for 8 years and cannot believe we have not tried this restaurant before. Every table was taken but you were not cramped in....

Experienced Banquet 1408 for the first time last night (13th September) for my partner's 50th birthday with our friends. We were all surpised at how busy it was, full to the brim and lots of noise and a great atmosphere - this is not a place for a romantic meal for two though, this is a place for families and... More

The food was excellent, the quality of the set menus was superb. It is... More

Top quality food. Great service. Been here several times for several reasons and has always been nothing short of excellent. Would highly recommend and am definitely going back. The only one thing I would say if pushed is that the atmosphere inside could be seen as slightly impersonal but then I suppose it depends the company you are with !... More

My wife and I have been looking for an opportunity to visit. We managed to visit for Sunday lunch recently at the end of August. We had a set menu but wanted to swap one of the dishes for another, this was no problem with the waitress giving excellent advice on which dish we might like to swap out. Needless... More

We visited Banquet 1408 on Saturday 30th August for a family celebration meal. The set meal was pre-selected as part of the deal and we also dined in one of their two private rooms. The restaurant is handily located on the outskirts of the town with plenty of parking available. This is a good thing too as the place was... More

A busy, but efficient restaurant with delicious food. We tried the crispy aromatic duck and the Thai style spicy pork and we thoroughly enjoyed these selections. We will return!

We visit the Banquet at least once a month as a couple and every time the food is outstanding. We have tried many chinese restaurants both close to home and away. This place remains very close to the top of the list. Our last visit was with another 2 couples, again the food was fantastic and quick. Service on our... More
