“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you want top class Chinese cuisine - this is the best place in Northern Ireland for authentic chinese food.
You need to go off the main menu which is really for those who think Chinese food is Sweet and Sour or Special Fried Rice.
All Seasons has much, much more to offer to a more discerning guest.

Always ask for Richard - then ask what fresh seafood or specials are available and you will never be disappointed. Lobster cooked in spring onion and ginger is a gourmet treat which is of such a standard that it could be served to a king.Sea Bass pan fried ,scallops in the shell served with black bean an delight!

The Salt and Chilli Squid is absolutely fabulous,enrobed in the lightest of batter with flavour and taste to die for! The very best in the UK
The Char Sui Pork is an in- house speciality and is the best in the country especially when smothered in its own juices.The house Roast Duck on the bone is a must have for any casua visitor.

The Won Ton broth is unbelievably good!

If want top class chinese food i go to ALL SEASON'S because it delivers quality food time and time again.
Michael the Chef is a master of his art -thats why you will often see some of TVs best known chefs dining at All Season's

If you just want super chinese food without fuss ,silly decor and are prepared to leave the menu and be adventurous All Season's is the place to be.

“Went just to see if it was ok. have been back 3 times since”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I went here with some friends just to try it. Hadn't heard much so wasn't expecting too much. Was it any good? Well I've been back three times since Xmas and it's a while since I could say that!
Unsupposing from the outside and inside it looks like an average Chinese restaurant - aquarium as you walk in and several large round tables plus some smaller ones.
The manager has welcomed us every time and been very pleasant, as have all the waiting staff. The food is excellent. I have had a few of their bean curd (tofu) dishes and they were all very good - the salt and chilli bean curd being outstanding.
My wife has tried different dishes each time and never had anything disappointing. Even things she wasn't keen on (e.g. a satay sauce) she tried and reckoned that it was light and tasty and not at all like the gloopy peanut butter type dish she'd had in other places. We get complimentary prawn crackers and dips on arrival and orange segments as dessert to clear the palate afterwards. A nice little touch.
Last night we had 2 starters, 2 mains, coffee and a bottle of wine and the bill came to £46, which we though was good value considering the quality of the food. The restaurant has always been busy when we have been there and this gives a nice lively atmosphere.

“The best Chinese in Belfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Was taken out again tonight to the All Seasons Chinese and once again it was excellent. Well done to Richard and his staff, who are always happy to serve you. I have been going to this resturant for many years now and it only gets better. My favourite is the lettuce wrap, the flavours are just great. The duck is another favourite, but I really like when we go with a big group of friends thenwe just share lots of great dishes.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Loved this place,Went on Wednesday night,more than half the tables were taken up with Chinese families,which must be a good sign.

“Best Chinese I'd eaten in years....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Was very pleasantly surprised by this place. All the food was perfectly cooked and the chicken and sweeter soup surpassed all I've eaten previously. Before I ordered I thought the prices looked a bit exorbitant but I soon realised that the prices were a reflection of the quality. Decor is pretty tacky but if good Chinese food is what you're after, look no further.
