Went into the restaurant, seemed averagely busy. We had to grab someone's attention and they came over and said to wait at a seat and someone would be over in 1 minute. After waiting over 15 minutes. Still no one came over. After getting fed up we decided to leave. On the way out I spoke to the manager who... More

Hi After reading your review, you and 2 young children came on Tuesday evening around 6:45pm when Bolton Wanderers was playing a home match. The restaurant was very busy due to a large amount of customers walking in, not booked, prior before your arrival. A member of staff informed you that it was busy and that you will need to... More

I took my granddaughter to Abacus as part of her 'tasting around the world' experience. The staff were really good with us. She wanted noodles to try to eat with chopsticks and they gave her some to take home. I asked for sweet and sour chicken without the batter and they obliged. The food and service were excellent.

We've been coming to Abacus since it opened and have never been disappointed; it's one of our favourite restaurants. The food is always delicious and always tastes really fresh and they are usually happy to make changes (within reason!) to the banquets. It is not the cheapest place to eat but worth that little bit extra.

We have been going to this restaurant for 10+ years. I have never in all this time had a bad meal. The staff are really helpful and always available should you need them. The food is delightful. Also the early evening menus are varied and hard to make a decision on. Salt and pepper king prawns are to die for.... More

We found Abacus through our Hi-Life Diners card and as we were visiting relatives in Bolton we decided to go there. Of course it is free convenient parking on Middlebrook Retail Park (right next to Bolton Wanderers Stadium) and there is loads to do on there, bowling, cinema and shopping. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and the... More

Hi Thank you for your feedback and would like to point out some facts after reading your review. You said that you ordered some prawn crackers from the manager which in fact is not true as it is one of the waitress that took your order. When the bill arrived at your table, you spoke to me and told me... More

Great evening with our family - our son celebrating his birthday plus our young nephew and my son's grandmother. We chose the restaurant as it caters for all ages and tastes. As usual we were not disappointed, great service and food - enjoyed by everyone from the eldest to youngest palettes. My only great was booking the taxi too early... More

Went for the Imperial Banquet. Food was very nice, service was very good and atmosphere fine. No pressure to eat fast, like you'd get in some places, plenty of breaks allowing us to take our time with each dish. (3 hours it took us... Oops!)

Having read the mixed reviews I was a bit apprehensive going to Abacus with colleagues however I was pleasantly surprised so much so that we visited again the following week when up in Horwich for business. The Salt and Pepper squid and prawns were both very good. The Pork in pepper sauce was equally good. Only criticism I thought they... More
