Description: The Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant has been welcoming discerning diners to Bangor for 32 years and remains a heavenly haven of culinary excellence.Proprietor Andrew Lui established the Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant in 1981 following a chemical engineering degree and career, and is now a leading authority on Cantonese cooking. Working together with wife and Head Chef, Alice Lui who trained in Hong Kong and China.The restaurant is open seven days a week with a comprehensive a la carte menu from 2.00pm to 09.30pm. “There are three basic principles that I believe are essential for success,” Andrew adds.“The first is good cuisine; the second is good service and thirdly, a good environment.All our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked with the finest ingredients. The Garden Cantonese Restaurant goes a little step further by offering dishes to suit vegans, lacto vegetarians, ovo-lacto vegetarians and customers with nut, dairy or gluten allergies. We also understand the importance of healthy eating and use only the healthiest of oils and lean produce in our cuisine.

“Amazing food but!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Well as we ventured in to this place I thought abort abort abort! We sat down I looked around and thought we were in some 1980 s hotel due to the decor and classical music, if this place was traditionally decorated and had Chinese music then I would be rating it a 10/10, the food and service was bang on decent sized portions of well cooked and tasty food. The waitress was friendly helpful and served us well the only thing that let our night down was the decor but at the end of the day it's all about the food and on food alone I rate it 10/10 but overall an 8/10 I will deffo be back

“Faultless service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Went to this resturant due to the other reviews on this site as we are just visiting benllech and wanted somewhere decent which wasn't a pub. Parking was easy and the place was easy to find
From the moment we walked in the staff were straight over and treated us like royalty, couldn't do enough for us,
Food came fairly quickly and I must say it was some of the nicest Chinese food we have ever tasted, top marks.
The atmosphere at first was a bit quiet and formal but after a few more tables were filled it soon picked up.
We took our 9 year old son and there was no problem picking something to eat for his tastes either. Staff once again focusing on his needs to make sure we were happy.
Definitely book on a weekend as we watched a few party's getting turned down for tables due to being busy.
Will definitely be going back and will be taking our friends , 9/10 GREAT !!!

“NOT genuine Chinese food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This food is not Chinese, any more than tinned spaghetti hoops are real Italian food. Most of it tasted oddly sweet. The Chinese greens with oyster sauce had no oyster sauce but did have some sort of salty slime on them -revolting. Nice people but poor value for insipid and inauthentic food. To be avoided.
