The Gonbay is a lovely restaurant off The Downs, Altrincham. We often frequent there. Ming the owner/Manager is a wonderful man, most accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. We have turned up without booking before now and he just fitted us in. He's lovely to our children too, as are all the staff. The tables are set a suitable way... More

Never would have known this was here until a trip to another shop took me past the place. Looks small from the outside but huge inside with plenty of space and tables. Served straight away, all the courses were excellent and not served too quickly like you get in city centre restaurants. Cant fault anything and the service was great.

Today we took a party of Thirteen to celebrate my fathers Eightieth Birthday. He has Alzheimer's Disease and we had two lively young children with us, so we can't have been the easiest party. Well that didn't matter as they couldn't have been kinder to my father and indeed the whole party. The service was superb, even to the extent... More

Food was great, great set menus for evening diners at a reasonable price and lovely interior nicely spaced out, can have a laugh without to much disturbance

We went as a large group of about 40 people. It was the Year 13 Historians final meal together with staff before leaving school. The food and service is always excellent. Nothing is ever too much trouble. A good meal was had by all. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Visited their on business and shared prawns and other appetizers with a colleague. Also, we had nicely prepared fish and a pork entree. The taste was nice but not too spicy. The place was full but they made room for us without reservations. Would go again.

Table for 11 - we enjoyed banquet B. Excellent quality food which we all enjoyed. Service was good although we seemed to be there a long time. Would very happily go again.

There were 5 adults in our party on Sunday April 13th & we went for a banquet option. Great decision, it was superb, the variety was excellent & the food was beautifully cooked, the highlight being the whole sea bass, The service was truly excellent, the pace just right, ever so friendly staff, and when we were so full that...

Gonbay serves the most delicious Chinese food in the whole of Altrincham/Hale and at reasonable prices too. The staff also deliver impeccable customer service which is more than can be said for staff at the nearby Man Zen, who can be rude and abrupt. Gonbay is definitely now my number one choice for Chinese in the area.

I visit the Gonbay fairly often as it's so fantastic. Usually I go for the set menu which is really good value. The chicken and sweet corn soup is yummy and the combination starter platter is great. Usually by this point I'm usually fairly full up but the lemon chicken is great and you get a generous portion so others... More
