lovely staff and the food is really tasty.

Have been a few times as the food is just lovely with great choice and fab flavours. Nothing is too much trouble when we had a family occasion there. The crispy beef is to die for !!

Popped in on a Friday evening and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was outstanding and the food was even better. The prices are so affordable and for a quick evening out when wanting a night off from cooking and dishes this is worth the quick drive we had the early bird meal for two and a drink each under...

We visited Gonbay today as regular customers. The service was good although they forgot one starter and the water we'd asked for. The food was really good except for some reason there were no peanuts in the satay sauce. We still enjoyed it and would definitely keep going back.

Parking wasn't fun. We had to park some way away - a small town centre should offer better parking - it was difficult to see the need for so many double yellow lines on a Saturday night. Once we got into the restaurant, though, we weren't disappointed - nothing outstanding, but the standard fare of good Chinese food, all good,... More

We visited Gonbay after reading reviews on Trip Advisor - and we were not disappointed. Staff were helpful and friendly - they made some good suggestions for menu changes and food came out of the kitchen quickly. Everything was fresh and tasty.

Excellent Chinese quisine. A bit pricey, but worth the extra spends. Probably the best in the area. I've eaten there a few times, but thought it was high time it got a review.

Five of us went to this restaurant on a Saturday night. Service was quick and attentive, food choice excellent and dishes did not have that sticky monosodium taste at all. We really enjoyed the evening, prices are reasonable but it was fairly full so booking ahead may be advisable.Free on street parking is available locally, restaurant is fully licenced.

We use Gonbay quite a bit for takeaways. The quality is great but the food is a bit pricey however the staff and management are the nicest people you could meet.
