We visited this restaurant early on a Monday evening after reading the glowing reports in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The quality of food and presentation was excellent. Very attentive staff and very nice surroundings. We will definitely visit again. A great find.

Prolly and I ate dinner here on a Sat in mid Aug. we had a reservation and we're glad of because the restaurant was very busy. We ordered an executive banquet for 2. Mixed starters, ribs, prawn toast and spring rolls. Wonderfully presented and fantastic tasting! Crispy duck cooked to perfection came next. A large portion! Finally our main courses.... More

Always enjoy our meal here but would like to add it is quite expensive on the a la carte menu. Food is always well cooked and presented. We had spare ribs (gorgeous) and prawn balls. I opted for the beef with black bean and my boyfriend got the chicken satay. We had one rice and some chips and a few... More

Have eaten here before a couple of times whilst in Glasgow and find it first class. Fairly centrally situated, food excellent as is the service. Very good ambience, staff friendly. Would definitely recommend. Probably better to book a table if going at busy times.

I've been to many great Cantonese restaurants, but not many have offered as extensive a seafood menu as the Amber Regent. We had several starters and mains and without doubt the stars of the table were all the fish and seafood dishes including, prawns, monk fish and seabass The service is prompt and friendly enough and the surroundings are comfortable...

The food is to die for, the presentation of the dishes, simply exquisite! Beautiful carved flowers , birds carved from carrots....beautiful plates, silver... More

Latest visit of quite a few over the last 20 years or more and the message is one of consistently high standards. The restaurant is a little oasis of calm where you get attentive but not intrusive service, with excellent food with beautiful flavours, nicely presented. Jasmine tea as my personal preference complimented nicely my very tasty Szechuan prawn dish... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants. It serves excellent Chinese food - cooked fresh to order. Service exceptional. Restaurant has good ambience and is kept to a high standard of decor and cleanliness. Beautiful flowers and ornaments to add interest. The food is the star though!
