Just to clarify the food here is great and I've always loved it. However I ordered a delivery the other night and was told it would take 40 minutes which fitted in with my evening plans. An hour passed and no food or phone call for an explanation. I had to phone over 8 times in order to get a... More

I've used this restaurant for take always and eat in meals for over 12 months. They started off so well but then turned into the worst take away in Altrincham. Sauces spilt all over the boxes and bags, chewy meat and that's if you're lucky enough to find any meat. Complaints are treated with disdain and are fobbed off.

I have bean going here for years and used to love it, but things have changed. I will no longer eat in but will use the takeaway service. I took the family there a few day ago. We order a good volume of food and paid a substantive price and expected a large volume of food. They delivered very small... More

Called in on spec last Saturday night. We were seated immediately. With each course my wife & I looked at each other and said 'WOW'. The food was so tasty. We would definitely recommend and we will be going again. PKD

Been visiting Gonbay for years and have never been disappointed. One of the few Altrincham restaurants to offer delivery too. The owner is a really nice guy and super efficient. Food is tasty and plentiful and is reasonable value. The 5th star is missing only because should one dine early evening midweek when it's quiet you find that the staff... More

Went there for a birthday celebration. We had Banquet B which was lovely the only criticism of the food is that it is very tasty but as a person who does not like salt everything is a bit too salty for me that's why the score is only 4 from me
