Great food & service

Called in on spec last Saturday night. We were seated immediately. With each course my wife & I looked at each other and said 'WOW'. The food was so tasty. We would definitely recommend and we will be going again. PKD

Been visiting Gonbay for years and have never been disappointed. One of the few Altrincham restaurants to offer delivery too. The owner is a really nice guy and super efficient. Food is tasty and plentiful and is reasonable value. The 5th star is missing only because should one dine early evening midweek when it's quiet you find that the staff... More

Went there for a birthday celebration. We had Banquet B which was lovely the only criticism of the food is that it is very tasty but as a person who does not like salt everything is a bit too salty for me that's why the score is only 4 from me

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
