“Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went to this restaurant as a belated celebration for our 16th wedding anniversary.

The venue: It is situated at a nondescript street a stone's throw from Eccles train station. The frontage is very un-assuming and you will not think of it as a highly rated restaurant until you see the signage. The train station's parking lot acts as the nominated space for its clientele. It is easily accessible for disabled people. The interior design and ambiance is very minimalist as compared to other Asian restaurants that capitalise on orientalia bordering on the gaudy and garish. The choice of the lay-out and furniture used for dining was well thought of- very Spartan and simple. These were cleverly done so the main reason for the experience shines through.

The food: For the lovers of Chinese food- this is gustatory nirvana. No silly fusion nonsense here. Just simply gorgeous Chinese food. They aim to shock the palate into humble submission,not by overly done presentation but with distinctive tastes of the orient. People who regularly eat Chinese take-away food will be surprised to know that there is a variety of tastes and textures as opposed to the uniformity of fried/stir-fried and sauced-up food they get.
We went a la carte instead of going for the set menus because it is the best way to gauge the greatness of a restaurant. And they passed with flying colours!

The service: The all-asian staff were very polite, unobtrusive, friendly and well versed on Asian food. As I went to the toilets( which were immaculate and pristine), I was able to peek at the kitchen and felt relieved that all the chefs were Chinese.

We will definitely be going back very soon!

“Excellence All Round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We have visited this restaurant a few times and it never fails to impress. The food is delicious, the staff are very friendly and it is always busy proving its good quality food and service. After the meals we have continued our evening upstairs in the bar for cocktails, the entertainment and atmosphere are really good.

“Class in a cup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

( I previously tried to enter this review, We have returned to Pacifica since so here goes) The food is fantastic, the service is friendly, but not OTT. What impresses me most is the attention to detail... The tea cups, cutlery glasses furniture etc. are all expensive designer and no corners are cut when is comes to the "little things" for myself and my wife this says a lot about the establishment and I feel that I rightly should give them a very positive review.
