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

we've been coming here for a few years. Food is good & not expensive. Enjoyed some lovely wine here too. They get to know their regulars and they often offer a complimentary drink after dinner. The basic set dinner is really good value, I think it's £22 per head, you get lots of food - we can highly recommend the... More

We visited last night when we decided to go for a meal locally. We were asked to wait for a table as we had not reserved a table & very happy to do so. After a drink at the bar we were shown to our table. We ordered our food & 10 minutes later we were asked by the manager... More

Our first visit tonight for my sisters birthday. We had Menu B wow what a lot of lovely food there was nothing we didn't enjoy. Best Chinese for miles around that we have eaten in. Lovely friendly attentive staff and owner. We will be back. Dress warmly it's quite cold in the restaurant

Only been to Gonbay a few times because Chinese food was not my favourite. However, I have really enjoyed the meals i have had there. I would say that I now think this restaurant has changed my view. I can truly recommend the crispy beef there with soft noodles (delicious) Will be returning very soon.
