“Lived up to it's reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

This was my first visit and having heard many glowing reports, it was eagerly anticipated. I was not disappointed! One of our party was vegetarian so we opted for the veggy set meal with 2 added dishes, one being my all time favourite, crispy shredded chili beef. Every dish was superb, the service was attentive, professional & not overdone. An extremely enjoyable experience

“Top quality food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Simply the best dedicated Chinese restaurant in town, Aqua 8 does run it close but this is more of an Asian fusion establishment, the duck is simply superb, but the highlight was the fillet of beef in black bean which was cooked to perfection. for a midweek visit the place was 90% full, which i am sure not many establishments in Ipswich without an outside seating area could say that on a Wednesday during mid summer. the staff are exceptional and very professional with the restaurant having a great atmosphere. I can also recommend the takeaway service although you will need to collect.

“Terrific Trongs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Amazing, this place truly deserves it's reputation as one of the best Chinese Restaurants in Ipswich. Even though the place was packed, we were never ignored and made to feel really welcome by the lovely friendly staff. The Vietnamese spring rolls were divine along with the fresh succulent prawn toast. Menu prices are really good, around £23 a head for a set meal. This is one place I will return to again when in the area. 5 Star Evening. As good as some of the restaurants I have eaten in Chinatown in Soho.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We had an early evening meal before a theatre visit. The staff could not have been more helpful in ensuring we met our timetable to leave to go on. We are from a set menu. The crispy duck was great. All the courses were good and tasty and not salty as can sometimes be the case.
