Will you ever re-open?

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?

I love this restaurant, we go there a lot and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the staff are so friendly and helpful even when they're busy. I would definitely recommend a visit.

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.

From previous experience we have found that Lowestoft lacks a nice up market restaurant/place to eat while fish and chip shops, cafes and take outs abound. We've always stayed a very short walk from this place but have never tried it as we usually went to the 'Blue Lighthouse' in Southwold down the coast. But upon finding our favourite place... More

Our meal arrived within 60 seconds of ordering !!!!!! Dry rice , dry chicken and no flavour . When we told the waitress she said it's all pre cooked because we are so busy !!! Perhaps you shouldn't book everyone at the same time and then you could Cook things to order !!! Won't be going there again .
