Good food and decent service for a group on 8 of us. Great value for money and a decent menu. Wine reasonably priced and the staff actually smile.

Around 36 of us went for a fundraising meal. Service was very slow. Arrived for 7. Sat down 7.30. 8.15 before any food was served. We had 1 vegetarians on our table. 2nd course 1 of them wasn't even bought a meal. Will not be going back

We don't eat Chinese in the UK because it's nothing like the real thing you get in the Far East. Our visit to this popular local restaurant confirmed why. The dishes are "gloopy" and unappetising and we won't be rushing back.

Dined at The Arch with friends on Friday evening and the whole experience was top draw. Having eaten there a few times over the last few years I have to say this place never disappoints. The staff were very friendly and efficient the food was excellent. If your looking for a good Chinese Meal look no further..........you've found it.

We have been occasional visitors to The Arch since its 'heyday' as an immensely popular, high-end Chinese restaurant 30 odd years ago. The quality in the interim period has generally been mixed and its popularity appeared to wane. Our latest visit, to a full and buzzing Friday night Arch, proved that this restaurant is having a bit of a renaissance.... More
