Dinner at House of Chau. Staff were friendly, meal was excellent (special mention for Prawn Dim Sum starter which was just the best) - will definitely go back.

“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

My brother had been to the House of Chau on numerous occasions, and said it was the best Chinese restaurant in Ayrshire and surrounds. How right he is. The menu is "different" from the usual run of the mill Chinese restaurants and everything cooked freshly to order, even making my husbands choice not too "hot". The food was delicious, the staff helpful and friendly and very welcoming to this small hidden gem. I've been happy to recommend the House of Chau to friends and family.

“Amazing food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went to this restaurant for the first time at the weekend. The staff ere extremely friendly and helpful, especially with my son, who is a handful. The food was delicious and very fresh. The portions were very good for a lunch time menu. Definitely good value for money. Cant wait to return for an evening meal. The restaurant is small and intimate with another part upstairs, perfect for a private function.

Without doubt the best Chinese in Ayrshire. The service is also superb. They are always very friendly. A must visit venue.
