Amazing meal last night, my fella treat me to some the best grub in town. I've just read a few of the reviews on here and there are a few whinging about service and cost. If you want quick service and cheap food then go to maccies you peasants. You want good food and don't care if it's more expensive... More

The staff are nothing less than first class. If you are looking for silver service then I suggest you find another place to eat. However if you want a little bit of local charm and lots of friendly banter with your meal then there is no other choice in the North West. Its worth going back purely for the fun... More

We were up in Barrow in business and found this Chinese by accident. What a find!! We opted for the banquet meal. Fantastic food! Great staff with good banter that creates a superb atmosphere. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely visit again. Ignore any bad reviews this place is a Gem.

Went the Diamond for a wedding lunch with about 30 guests, the food great,service the same,staff very friendly. Overall atmosphere great. Not overpriced, even the drinks were a reasonable price too. Enjoyed the experience and left with a very full tummy as the portions were spot on.

Have to say the food was very nice, but we arrived at 8 had starters and a main course and didn't leave until ten past ten. We waited well over half an hour for starters, and then another hour for our main course, it then took them 20 minutes to give us the bill and let us settle up. They... More

We'd heard that the standard had dropped here having not been for a while. We came as part of a large group and found Lily back in charge, the waitresses were attentive and helpful, with some new faces, definitely an improvement. We all had variations on the banquet menu. All of our group of 20+ agreed that the garlic chicken... More

Staying in Barrow on business,picked this out as they advertise a late sitting from 9pm on their website. Walked in at 9.10 to be told they were closing. Got the impression that thebar/waiting staff simply weren't interested in serving a customer at this 'late' hour. Shame, as menu looked quite good. Luckily the Mithali Indian Restuarant next door was happy... More

I've eaten at the Diamond on several occasions and never been disappointed. If you like soup, try the hot & sour, it really is good. The singature dish is honey glazed spare ribs which are excellent as are the set meals for two or three etc. Nice surroundings but upstairs is a bit out of the way. If I won... More

For such a busy town it is surprising this was so quiet. The food is very good and the 'secret' (plum & chilli) Beijing sauce is delicious. There is a lack of authentic waiting staff which was unusual but seemed to work. For Barrow though it seemed expensive, >£12 for each main may be the reason for its lack of... More
