I had a really lovely meal here with some friends and everything was excellent. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much bother, the ambience was warm and friendly and the food was really, really tasty. Everything we tried, from the salt & chilli squid, to the amazing duck was beautiful. I would really recommend Macau for a... More

The food here is delicious. The steamed sea bass was fantastic and the squid is a must try too. The service was excellent and the fact that you can bring your own topped it off.

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant ever. The food is always amazing with no sign of MSG anywhere. My favourite is the steamed seabass with ginger, chilli and garlic. It tastes incredible every time. The fact that you can bring your own wine makes this a great venue for a friends night out. However, we've been as a family and... More

I've been going to Macau for many years and the food and service has always been of the highest standard. Salted chilli squid, prawn, ribs and dumplings is a great starter for a group and for mains slow cooked cod, hake, Dover sole and duck with noodles and rice is unbelievable. Irish coffees are best in Belfast. All of this... More

This is a well known Chinese handy to the city centre. The food is excellent if the surroundings are on the lesser quality side. It needs a good refurbishment but it is clean and the food is first class.

Outstanding chinese food. Really warm and friendly staff. Efficient service. The sea food - salt and chilli squid, king prawns, XO hak and steamed sea bass are to die for. Bring your own as well so fantastic value. All washed down with a nice Riesling :)

We've been going to Macau for 6 years now, and since it was 4 years since my last review so I felt it was time for a reappraisal! The food is second to none, it has to be the best Chinese restaurant in Ireland. each time we visit i always endeavour to try something new and i'm never disappointed -... More

As pre holiday treat took the family to Macau on Sunday night! As always it was 1st Class! The Prawn Crackers with Ginger & Spring Onion or the Chilli Dip is always a favourite as we decided what to order. For Starters we opted for 1/2 Duck with Pancakes, Salt & Chilli Prawn and Spare Ribs All were superb, the... More

What can I say? It's very simple. Macau is the best Chinese restaurant in Belfast. I live in London, but come back to my hometown Belfast, several times a year. Ordered big takeaway order from them tonight. No fuss- ready in 15 mins. Perfect as ever, delicious Peking duck and pak choi. Have had several meals in the restaurant over... More
