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.

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.

Do not order food from this restaurant, I've never been moved to write a bad review before but these guys pushed me to do so. I ordered the food, starter and main for 2 and it came to £39 which I thought was steep but let it go as the quality must be 5 star. The food was then 20... More

We had a wide choice of menu especially for vegetarians and when the food came it was delicious. We were not rushed which... More
