“Not the usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

A rainy Thursday night in March and I am on my own looking for somewhere to eat.
Gourmets came recommended by the hotel I am staying at. The resteraunt is modern, clean and inviting. The service is great and though the food isn't the best I've ever had at a Chinese it's not bad, I would definitely come back. It's certainly value for money.

“Nice Chinese restaurant with better then average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Just ate there tonight (04/03/13) and was happy with the food, restaurant and service we received. When we arrived we where the first ones there, sat where ever we wanted and drinks orders taken straight away. Service throughout the meal was prompt and friendly. They checked on us a few times during the meal which was just right and not over bearing.

The restaurant did start to get busier as the evening went on but the service remained at the right level without falling off due to the increase in customers.

The food was nice, probably slightly above average to be honest and certainly nothing to complain about. It was nice, tastey food that was cooked well.

The resturant on the whole is nicely decorated, clean, attentive staff, good food and reasonably priced. Recommended.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Went here with my partner, it was delicious! More food than we needed, so we took some home in take away pots! Really friendly service from start to finish. Could be a little cheaper, but none the less, it was great.

“Excellent food, excellent atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Ate here on a Saturday night on business, having been here a few times.
Was quite empty on arrival, but soon filled up to create lively atmosphere.
The young waitress was a little in experienced, but did her best to please.
The food was really nice, well presented and very tasty.
Certainly the best Chinese in Lowestoft!
