Stopped off in Ayr and tried New City Cantonese at random. Great choice! Tried the Lunchtime Special Menu of 3 courses for £8.45 and it was excellent.

Food was OK. Staff on the other hand are dreadful. No hello. No goodbye and we were gestured to as to where we were going to sit. Whoever owns/runs this establishment needs to greatly improve on it's customer service. Won't be back. Felt like a burden.

The other sting in the tail was the cost of the soft drinks. Because their was a special lunchtime menu price,they conned you when ordering soft or hard drinks. I think a... More

We always look forward to a meal here, usually during the day when they have a terrific lunchtime specials menu. Great value for money, brilliantly cooked good service, nothing too much trouble if you ask. What more could you want?

Went with a mate after the air show this weekend, and was not disappointed. Good, spicy food, quick service and not too noisy. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and should we be in the Ayr area again, it will get repeat business.
