As regular clients of Spring Garden, our last couple of visits, dining there has been a sheer disapointment and waste of money. It was one of our favourite restaurants for Chinese food, but the food is sloppy, greasy, overcooked and ingredients are missing, despite pointing out to the manager that our crab dish contained zero crab! The manager is very... More

The food is heavily fried. The Chinese manager is surly. At least he's impartial, yelling at the waiters and being rude to customers in equal measure. Aah, but there's a plus. You will be discreetly offered the choice of not receiving a bill, paying cash and thereby evading VAT. If that's your idea of a pleasant meal, look no further.... More

We have been eating here since 2006. It is always good, a wide selection of dishes, clean, friendly setting. Nothing fancy. Just consistent Chinese food with flavor. Always a warm welcome.

I went for lunch with my family on a Sunday afternoon and we were kind of late as we entered at about 2.30 but we were still served even though we had to order quick as the kitchen closes at 3. We were served quickly (as we had asked for it as we were really hungry). Even though they served... More

From the word go, we have always had an excellent treatment from Spring Garden. I have been there more than 6 times and always love the service, food and ambience. We always book a private room as most of the times we with the family. Hence good attention given to us, well I should guess like the rest of the... More

I went for a family dinner here and the manager was rude and pompous. A couple was even told to leave as they had not booked a table. Worst experience ever.

Hi have been a faithful and regular patron of Spring Garden for over twelve years. Their food is exceptional, the prices reasonable, their staff very amicable, the ambiance simple and lovely. I am very sad to write this review, but today I experienced a terrible injustice. The manager was yelling uncontrollably at the staff in the kitchen due to a... More

I have to say straight off that I am not the biggest fan of Chinese food, but was disappointed by Spring Garden. The spring rolls as starters were okay but my main course of sweetcorn and chilies, just tasted like a tin of sweetcorn with a couple of chilies in. Don't know quite what I expected but it certainly wasn't... More

I like the fact that you can really taste the ingredients and not the sauces. Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not find that the onions were overpowering, so I guess it's all about personal taste. Also, the staff is friendly, and super nice to children! We enjoy going there when we want a simple dinner with the kids. They... More
