We went on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked but we were seated straight away even though the restaurant was busy. The service was a little rushed but expect that was due to how busy they were.

I have been a regular take-out and have sat in once over the years and have always enjoyed the food. The food was always good quality and the price was reasonable. The last couple of times however, they have messed up the take-away order. They repeat everything in front of you as you collect the bag but when you get... More

Went to the Ruby for years and loved the food but then the Chef's moved to the Mandarin so this is now my favourite Chinese.

Takeaway service brilliant, did not wait for long. They could have added a menu in the takeaway bag as it was our first order (though we forgot to ask anyways....) The ribs in our opinion lacked a bit of sweetness to balance the soy sauce. Chicken balls and fried rice and salad were all hot and tasty.

Love the Madarin, it is my go to Chinese out of the good selection in Helensburgh. Run by the very friendly Amy & Kenny who excel at customer service. The food is consistently great, I've had most of the menu!

Super friendly and efficient staff in this extremely popular Helensburgh restaurant. Great variety of standard and speciality dishes on offer. Food was delicious. Would recommend booking especially at the weekends.
