Great food, great atmosphere, not contemporary a little date but OK. Music is always a bit retro but let's memory's come flooding back. Recommend crispy duck, staff always very swift and efficient, owner is hands-on and always greets you with a smile and nothing is too much trouble, a firm favourite of ours.

As the title says.. 'It's the best Chinese takeaway we've had in yonks!' We've been searching for a decent Chinese takeaway a while now but alas, to no avail. The food is generally overpriced and underwhelming round here. But no more! We have found our place - Happy Days!

I've been here a few times recently and had tasty meals on each visit. They have a large selection on the menu, the service is always excellent and they always top off the meal with a little fruit which is a pleasant touch. My wife and I will be returning

We usually go to the Gonbay for our family get together, the staff are efficient and mostly friendly - some of the girls seem a little shy and less talkative, the front of house man is very friendly and always recognises us. The food is always excellent, and the set menus offer great value, they will even let you mix... More

Walk through the glass doors to be welcomed by the owner...seated.. asked what you want to drink..Full or pre 7pm special set menu...lots of older regular faces, nice hot food, fair choices, as in all Chinese eateries 100 mile an hour turnaround, old Matt Munroe classis playing in the background whilst one can also look at the cloudy fish tanks..or...

We love Chinese food as a family, we come here for special occasions, food is always excellent and the staff are very accommodating. Prawn toast is the best I've ever had, I dream about it all the time! Expensive for food and drinks but the quality of the food reflects this. Will always return.

Absolutely disgusting. How I wasn't sick is beyond me. The male memeber of staff in question must have been taking a break and was sat on a table behind me and my friends. The relentless coughing and deep gutteral sounds from him clearing his throat were deeply disrespectful to paying customers trying to eat a meal. The meal itself was... More

Goodness knows how many times we've been here over the last 12 years, but we know we can rely on the Gon Bay for lovely food and excellent service. The restaurant is very attractive and spotlessly clean and the service is second to none. We arrived with two very small, noisy children and the staff were wonderful. Their parents really... More
