We had a very nice family meal here. Very simple and polite service and not constantly in 'your face'. Portions very ample and they were more than happy to help with dividing a main course among two under tens. Only second visit. Don't know why we don't visit more

the meal was nice, but not the best, expensive for what we got, my main was the sizzling fillet steak, its was edible, the chicken cantanese was mostly onion and the sauce was like water, 2 of us dined and it cost us £65 with 1 glass of coke each and no deserts. service was great, infaact we felt rushed

Ordered sweet & sour prawns, batter was undercooked soft and soggy,prawns okay but due to coating couldn't eat them. Chicken dish was fatty & greasy. Fillet steak was tender but pretty sure wasn't fillet.. Have eaten in the restaurant & food was much better but due to poor service decided to get a take away. Will not use Gonbay again!!

The food and service at Gonbay is always good and this visit was no exception. The interior has been improved (better fish tanks!). The loos are clean and downstairs.

Ming is an excellent host and both the food and service were excellent. The restaurant is very pleasant and the atmosphere friendly helped by attentive staff and very friendly approach by Ming who likes to address customers by their forenames.

Nothing to dislike about this place. Last time we went we struggled to park anywhere nearby (which took the gloss off the visit ) but this time we were able to park just across the road, which was great. Not a great start, when they messed up the soup orders (leaving it to us to spot their mix-up), and even... More

I was in the area yesterday so popped into here for tea, having seen good reviews on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. The food was really good. We had the Early Bird menu and ordered the Chinese chicken curry for the main course which was wonderful and the portion was huge. It's not often I feel stuffed after a Chinese... More

Been going for years and always been at a consistently good standard. All the dishes are tasty with good veggie options!
