I would have liked to have given this place a higher score because the food is excellent and me and my family have been coming for many years. The woman who used to own and manage the restaurant has retired and without her being there the service and organisation of the place is becoming increasingly poor. It's a shame that... More

We ordered a meal for 4 which they reduced to a meal for 3 people. The starter of chicken satay, spring rolls, wan ton and salt & pepper... More

It has been a while since we last visited China Court and we expected the usual great food. When we arrived on a Wednesday evening we were surprised how many people were in as it is usually a quiet place mid week early on. We were quickly seated and a drinks order taken. However the drinks must have taken a... More

However the food was still fairly good . Will give it another... More

Visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday night with family visiting from 'darn sarfff'. We have used this restaurant ever since it opened and cannot fault it at all. The visiting family were suitably impressed with the decor, the staff and the food, as were we. Use this restaurant for takeaways too.....cannot find another to match it. Highly recommended.

We visited in March and had the best Chinese food I've ever tasted, I lived 15 minutes walk from China town in Manchester for many years and frequented many of the restaurants and I can honestly say the food I had at China court Barnsley was far superior and the service , particularly from Kai, (apologies if I have misspelt...

Went there for a family meal. Food is fantastic. The service was great and the atmosphere was good too. Although I think they need more back ground music as they seem to have one cd on repeat. But the main thing is that the food is great.

We visited the restaurant last night. This is the only Chinese restaurant we use as the food is always great and consistent. We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly, as always, and I am surprised by the recent reviews regarding the "manageress". Anyone who visits the restaurant on a regular basis (we have been visiting for over 15...

Another great meal with excellent service from one of our favourite restaurants. If we go out to eat Chinese food, this is our first choice
