Got a takeaway from here on the basis that it's the highest rated Chinese in the area, I was not disappointed! It was ready to collect in 10 minutes.

The service here was second to none, and the range of food on the menu was plentiful too.

Very tasty and good quality food all round, hope to come back... More

Went here with family, it was great, excellent service, very friendly staff and the food was very good. It is in the town centre so not hard to find, and the restaurant atmosphere is very warm and welcoming.

The Garden Cantonese Restaurant had good quality food and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I haven't been able to find good quality Chinese around the smaller towns we have visited so this was a good find and worth a visit.

We went here because it advertises some gluten free dishes. Upon arrival, I asked to see the menu and was shown they actually have a separate GF menu on the tables. The waitresses were incredibly helpful and very understanding of gluten intolerance. Our first waitress actually advised me what parts of what everyone else ordered was also gluten free (ie... More

The service at Garden is so good. I always feel appreciated. The range of vegetarian options is second to none. Food tastes healthy and fresh.
