Exceptional food but exceptionally poor service

Visited here at the weekend food was absolutely out of this world as always. however customer service skills are absolutely appalling. Lady in charge at the time constantly put her young waitress down and belittled her in front of the customers it was very embarrassing for the young girl. This... read more

Had a mid week night out at the Diamond and couldn`t have asked for more. Service was quick even though it was relatively busy and the food was absolutely fantastic

Cracking place to eat and drink. Top quality food backed up by friendly professional service. Nothing is too much for the staff in the Diamond. Shelley was our server on the night. She was helpful and made us all feel welcome. All the staff present were great and showed the same level of quality service through out our visit. The... More

A first class Chinese restaurant offering a superb choice of food. The staff are very friendly and their service is very good, The barbecued spare ribs are to die for and so are the crispy duck pancakes. Run by Lil, she is very ably assisted by Charlene and Shelley, to name just two.

A colleague and I went to the Dimond after some great recommendations from other people we work with. In short the food was really good, the waitress (Ashley we think) was really friendly and professional despite being bullied by the owner (blonde lady with a paw tattoo on her right wrist) at every step. This made the whole dining experience... More

Went with a group of friends, service was quick and friendly, we ordered a set meal for 9 and we had a few rounds of drinks. The food quality was superb, the service was attentive, the only thing letting it down for me is the price, slightly high, but then the quality of the good was well above any of... More

Ordered a takeaway for delivery at around 7pm on a Thursday evening. Order taken with no issues and advised our meals (2 starters, 2 mains, rice and noodles - nothing particularly large or complicated) would arrive around 40 minutes later. The food eventually turned up over 90 minutes later in a taxi, which we had to pay for on top... More

I have always enjoyed the Diamond. But last night was awful. I cannot fault the quality of the food. The soup and ribs were good but we waited well over half an hour for our steaks. The rice and plates were cold and we sent them back. The sizzling steak platters were cold and vegetable all wrinkled up. The steak... More

I actually went into this restaurant by mistake. I fancied Thai but ended up in this Chinese. I have to say that I was very impressed. The food was very nice, the staff were very friendly. I often find that there are a lot of Chinese restaurants where the food is bland and tasteless - this is not one of... More
