“Very tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Boyfriend and I came here last night, it was a Sunday night so not too busy and we were seated straight away. We each had a starters, which were really good. For the main I had Kung Po beef, and boyfriend had honey and lemon chicken. Both were really tasty and fresh! All the staff had big smiles on their faces and were very friendly and polite. We can't wait to come back :-)

“Terrible customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

after coming to Cathay dim sum for quite some time as regular customers we started to going into there other resturant wokushi nextdoor to them, we ordered two stesk tepinyaki as mains courses.but when they came and we tried the dishes they were cold we attempted to call the managess over to us, she said she would take them away and replace them with two new steak tepinyakis the second dish came and this was just as cold, we asked her to come over and she was adamant that it was cooked freshly and it was hot not agreeing with the customer all the drinks we have paid for,she did not offer them as a complimentary drink. we asked if we could pay our bill.we left the wokushi restaurant. we where very very disappointed as there was no attempt in reimbursing us and honoring our selves us being good customers for all that time. I would definitely say do not go in cathsy dim sum as they do not seem to know what good customer service at all and to how to handle customers I would say that needs to be looked at and retraining needs to be offered or she needs to be sacked. Never take it in the wokushi.its a big no no plenty of other places that respect good customers.

“HAPPY SMILING FACES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Not just ours, the staff here could show China Town a few tips about service. Friendly & cheerful. The food was plentiful & very tasty. Yes it's not the cheapest but the quality is excellent. I also have a very good local takeaway and I use it regularly but his overheads are 1/10th so do the maths.

“Very nice food - slightly overpriced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Really tasty food and excellent service.. It was a great restaurant to eat in.. It's dark inside; which I like.
There isn't a vast menu and it is very expensive. I ordered Chill and garlic chicken. my partner ordered crispy chilli beef.. noodles, salt and pepper chips and rice as sides.. we ate the lot and it arrived very quickly.

i will be going again.........after payday.

“Poor value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

There is more to life than 'all you can eat' at £17 per adult the only thing worth eating is the 2 soup starters, the rest is really poor, mass made, average/bland tasting nothingness. don't be fooled by the jellyfish display at the front of the outlet, its smoke and mirrors to divert you from the £17 you have just paid for a bowl of soup. Haven't tried the a la carte menu and after sampling the 'mains' in the buffet, I don't want to either. On the upside, the premises are ok, the staff are ok and the soup is tremendous. other than that, its not worth the visit.
