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.

The Gonbay is becoming one of a dying breed in Altrincham, a sit down Chinese restaurant! We were particularly impressed by the friendliness of the manager and his staff and the ambience of this large split level restaurant. The food was fine and the bill was pretty much what you would have expected at around £40/head for a banquet including... More

Family meal, 4 adults and two children all really enjoyed. Probably best Chinese we have had for a while. Ok a little pricey but each dish was yum

It is the best restaurant I've ever been in Manchester. The dim sum there is tasted and price is very reasonable. Crispy duck with pancakes is highly recommended.
