we booked a table for 9 eight weeks in advance requesting the window seat which we were told would be available, on arrival we were shown to our table that was in fact the last one free next to the toilets! We have been here on numerous occasions and have always been very pleased with the quantity and quality of... More

The restuarant is usually busy, but service is fast without feeling rushed. The food is delicious and good value. I tend to eat more of the appetisers - it's eat as much as you like and you really are spoilt for choice- so haven't tried many of the main courses. I have been many times and have never been disappointed.... More

What can you say about a restaurant that gives so much. The best of Chinese food on an extensive menu, cooked and served by the best people. Nothing is a problem to the ever helpful staff. I always welcome any excuse to return to Cafe de China on my own or with friends and family. A visit not to missed.... More

My whole family love this restaurant. Food is eat as much as you like and is cooked to order. Excellent quality, salt n chilli prawns, ribs, satay, crispy seaweed and duck are all to die for! Reasonably priced and excellent service. A must if you're in Margate!

Even though it was a 'Eat as much as you like' place, all the food was cooked to order. You could order as much as you wanted, as long as you didn't waste it! Lovely food, would definately go again as the price was very reasonable, even for the wine!

Another visit, another great meal. The outside of the restaurant doesn't really encourage people who do not know the restaurant to enter; don't be put off by the externals, the food is REALLY good. We eat many of the splendid starters and then go on to the crispy duck, after these, we never have enough room for the mains!! Go... More

A large party of twelve celebrating my son's 22nd birthday. Could not fault this restaurant. The food was absolutely great, all freshly cooked and piping hot when delivered to your table. The service was second to none, nothing was too much for them, our waiter was happy, jokey and extremely pleasant. You could order all you wanted and we waited... More

We decided early on Friday to have our evening meal at this venue. We were pleased we booked in advance, when we arrived it was very busy with some having to wait for a table. As usual the food was excellent and the service quick and friendly. There is a large choice form the menu, which would suit most diners.... More
