Absolutely fantastic food but let down by the poor service. Total mix up with our order. Some of us had finished our main courses before others had received them. Will try again as the food was excellent. Maybe just a blip

After our local Chinese, Man Zen closed we decided to try out Gonbay and we loved it. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and seated straight away. Within 5 minutes we had our drinks and ordered our food. My 11 year old is a little fussy with food so we ordered a chicken curry with no veg and boiled... More

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
