We have lived in Margate for 10 years and have been searching for a good Chinese this whole time, the best we have found the Pagoda which was "not bad" but the rest in Margate range from terrible to totally inedible. Today we came across Cafe de China, which has been under our noses the whole time, but is just... More

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
