We had lunch last week and would highly recommend this place.
As others have noted, the atmosphere is not the best and the Maitre D' acted like he thought I had slept with his missus but these are only minor gripes. Food really impressive - best squid and prawn dishes we've tasted and the duck spring rolls were divine. Freshly made tasty food - wine good value.
The young waiter was a star as was Mike who made things even better with free drinks! Check it out.

Thank you for your review and your mention of Mike. It is always a pleasure to hear when one of our team members makes a particular impression and this has been fedback to him personally.

I do hope that you will return in the not too distant future to experience many more of the delicacies that we have on the menu.

We had heard about Le Chinois through Tripadvisor. It was easy enough to find. We were pleased to see at last three tables in the restaurant had people of Chinese origin. That is always a good sign IMO. The head waiter/manager was a tad unfriendly but the young waiter made up for it. The food we ate was very tasty and we had to leave some of it as we were stuffed. No room for dessert. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant at all. Perhaps it is the design of the area that contributes to it. Some thought put in to this could make this place great and a lot busier than it was.
We would go back to eat there again.

Great tasty food but sadly not an exciting place to dine, it is kind of dull and lifeless. The prices are reasonable and the bar made some interesting cocktails

Good, spacious setting with decent variety of Chinese dishes, served quickly and fresh! Even uncommon dishes such as noodles from southeast Asia were done well.
