“overpriced food Could buy bag rice instead.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We had a take away from here and well it was disgusting
Chicken curry and 2 egg fried rice. The rice at nearly £6 each is too much.
Staff could not speak english.
They have become too complacent, rather go to Indian for curry and cheaper.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Recently moved to Cardiff, and just ordered some food for delivery from this restaurant. I can quite honestly say it was the worst Chinese food either of us have ever tasted. What are they doing in that kitchen? The seaweed had no seasoning whatsoever, the "satay" smelled and tasted like boiled cabbage. Cheap, soggy vegetables.
Yuk yuk yuk. Never again.

“Never again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

At one time this was one of the best Chinese restaurants in Cardiff but that was many, many years ago. My son and I stopped by on a very rainy Cardiff day and the service was awful (the waitress brought us the wrong dishes, twice!). The food was disgusting and my 12-year old and I couldn't wait to get out of there. There are many new restaurants in Cardiff that I would suggest visiting. Give this one a miss (from someone who was born in Cardiff but now lives abroad).

“Rude staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Not recommendable to go and eat in. One of the male chinese old grumpy staff treats customer so badly. He doesn't deserve to work in this restaurant because he puts the reputation of this company down. He needs to be fired. There are other highly respectable chinese restaurant close to this restaurant. I advise anyone not to go to Happy Gathering as you end up being sad instead of being happy

“Gone down hill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Not eaten here for quite a while. What a disapointment. Grumpy service, average to poor food, at top west end prices. Will not go there again.
