Poor service

A lot of locals love the food at the Diamond, and rightly so. It is fantastic, albeit very expensive. So when paying such prices I don't think it's too much to expect the service and decor to be of a similar high standard. Unfortunately the decor at the Diamond is tired and the service I recently... read 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

My husband and I ordered the set meal and were not dissapointed. It was £25pp and we thought great value for money for 4 courses. The food was lovely & all very hot and tasty. Staff were very efficient and friendly and we will be returning.

Lots of people rave about the Diamond, I find the food reasonably good but expensive. Its small inside therefore if you have large parties you will struggle. There are many Chinese take away places which offer better food.

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 error made by the waitress with our... 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.
