Went here on the spur of the moment, but I'm glad we did! We were seated quickly and with a smile. We both had Tsingtao (Chinese beer) which I always recommend. To start we shared 1/4 duck and a fillet steak roll in black pepper sauce. I have to say the steak was tongue tinglingly delicious it was almost a... More

What a lovely meal!! We had the banquet for 13 of us - each course and each dish was wonderful. The service was spot on and the atmosphere was good. We will be back, thank you!

From the entrance the Gonbay looks a little dishevelled by once you get through the door you find a spacious, elegant restaurant. The food was delicious, the menu was extensive and the service was great. Was a little bit pricey but the quality of ingredients and cooking was worth it. Would highly recommend it.

Great service, wide menu variety. Think we tried a bit of just about everything in the end. Must try the Sea bass! Reasonably priced wine. Highly recommended.

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.
