The staff were always efficient, although it is too large to build a... read more

The towns best Chinese restaurant seems to have been closed since the autumn and this is a great shame as it was a regular haunt of ours and we were never disappointed. I know other Asian outlets have closed over the years and hope it may reopen but am not too hopeful

It's a shame to have this restaurant closed at the moment. Hopefully it will re open soon. I have eaten there many times and was always really happy with the food and excellent service. I really do hope it re opens

I cannot understand why this very popular Chinese restaurant has been closed for so long , many rumors floating around but notice on the door said closed due to burst water pipe , someone is still going in there to feed the fish so it may re open soon who knows ........

We love this restaurant and have been regular visitors for 8+ years but so sad to see it has been shut since last October (2014). Would really like to know if we are going to eat at your lovely restaurant ever again?

Gourmets is my favourite Chinese restaurant in the area, and is very popular with friends too, who travel to eat there from around 15 miles away. The staff are extremely nice and very friendly - the kind of place who are happy to let you bring a birthday cake. Many of the regulars who visit in groups of six or... More

This is far the best Chinese in town with pleasant surroundings and located on the sea front. A must.
