Superb choice and quality on a Sunday lunchtime. Great service too from the young waitress. Choice of beer is poor but did not lessen the great lunch experience. Super Quality and value

Really poor service, 2 hours and still no main dishes. Will not eat here again. After telling the staff we had not got our main dishes, 15 minutes later still no main dishes.

Visited here with a friend. We was promptly shown to a table and served our drinks, if I was to criticise one thing, it would be how expensive the drinks are. 3 pints of coke, nearly a tenna is going some in my eyes! Anyhow, fortunately the food makes up for it. We had the all you can eat buffet,... More

What a disaster! We arrived and greeted by a waiter dressed in a smart suit. He came across as odd, trying very hard to be friendly to us. Taking our drink order, he swore in front of the children when his pen didn't work, which took a little by surprise! We were placed on a table by the bar area... More

The River Garden offers an excellent "All You Can Eat" Sunday lunch special. Choose however many starters you would like from the extensive menu. Same with the numerous main courses. Extra charge for Duck & King Prawns. The starters we chose were freshly cooked and very nice, particularly enjoyed the crispy chilli chicken, spare ribs and satay chicken with peanut... More

We went for dinner with our friends who live in the area and had the all you can eat menu, we had lots of starters and a second round, you have to order what you want from the menu. My husband was not so keen as it was all deep fried but its definitely good value and our friend is... More

We're local to the restaurant and have eaten in a few times and ordered quite a few takeaways. Delivery is usually quick and food is ok. However, for a while, we've noticed it's not as fresh-tasting as other local Chinese restaurants. Last night we ordered a takeaway. When it arrived, both main dishes were incorrect, the soup (crab and sweet... More

Best in the area. The noodle dishes are especially good, really fresh and the portion sizes are excellent.
