Excellent food, poor service

The Diamond has always been a favourite and we booked for a family meal. The food itself was, as ever, delicious and certainly the highest quality Chinese in the area. However, we were disappointed by the service throughout. Asking to pay for drinks as we ordered them was frowned upon. There was an... read more

The Diamond used to be the best Chinese food in Barrow. Alas, how the mighty have fallen. The prices are still fabulous (up to £17 for house specials) but the food is not. Too much tinned sauces and vegetables and not enough fresh meat and veg. Sweet and sour soup is inedible. And portions are not generous. 'Four' spring rolls... More

service was excellent. Restaurant was busy. Great atmosphere. Price a little on the high side but was reflected in the quality.

I arrived late to join a group of colleagues who has already ordered and mostly eaten. I was lucky enough to finish off what was still uneaten and even when it had cooled the garlic chicken and deep fried crispy chilli beef is first class. If there was more left I would have taken it away with me. The staff... More

Visited with the husband for an anniversary meal. We have been before but not for several years. Food as good as ever, service ok. Slight complaint in that we found it quite draughty & I had to keep a scarf on. Food made up for this. Will return.

On walking in the restaurant and asking for a table for two, the blonde lady behind the bar said "I will think about it" with a very un welcoming face. we are both laid back people so we took this as a joke, and proceeded to our table, after being handed our drinks (which were flat) we couldn't believe how...

A Post Christmas get together with a group of friends, 10 of us visited The Diamond last Friday evening. It's been a while since I was last there and found it disappointing. We were surprised to be asked to drop a £10 per head deposit in beforehand??????? It was lacking in atmosphere, being as it was fairly quiet this didn't... More

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
