Dined here recently with friends and its a well known place with a good reputation. However the over use of the synthetic flavour enhancer M.S.G (monosodium glutamate) or chinese sugar is taking over the place. Two of my party started with severe cramps and then got headaches after their starters, a sign of too much M.S.G. Jugs of water were... 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

The food here is always great with a wide menu and reasonable prices - good lunch time deals. however the staff let the restaurant down a lot - they are quite rude and always talking over the restaurant to each other or customers they may know which isn't acceptable when trying to enjoy a meal

This is only my opinion on our takeaway food, as I do like the restaurant. Sorry diamond chefs but when you advertise fried noodles with beansprouts please add the beansprouts.. Our fried noodle side dish looked like it had been warmed up, very dry and no sign of a beansprout! The meals don't come with any thing so at nearly... More

Visited on spec after being told it was a good place. When we arrived we were advised that we would have to be out in a hour as our table was booked. Not a problem. Seemed to take a while ~15 minutes to take order then waited for the food. Soup starter which was nice, followed by salt & pepper... More

Four of us went on Sunday 17th november, we went up stairs as we did not feel like using the buffet. The service was first class very welcoming & friendly. The drinks were at the table soon after ordering along with the prawn crackers. We all went for a set meal every course was a taste sensation, the crispy duck... More

Had a few meals here in the past, a little more expensive but well worth the cost, the staff are lovely but on our last visit the wait for each part of our meal was excessive though the phone was constantly ringing with takeaway orders which seemed to me to be getting dealt with much faster than those of us...
