“Excellent Soft Shelled Crab”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Good quality food, quite expensive but worth it all the seafood we had was top notch and very fresh. would definitely go back with a group next time, so we can try more things. The service was very good and friendly. The only down side is the decor is a bit tired, but as the old saying goes. if
it aint broke don't fix it.

“Best Chinese outside of London”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Been using the Fountain for 20 years, the menu has not changed but it is large. The soft shell crab as a starter is superb, the meats on hot plates are also great. Service is prompt, good wine list.

“Early Dinner”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The last time I visited here was more than five years ago and the food was as good as I remembered it to be, if not better! Went in for an early (for me) dinner. The food did not disappoint and the service was excellent. My companion's remark was, 'I'd definitely recommend this place'. The soft shelled crabs were delicious and the sizzling lamb, tender and tasty.

“Quality Chinese”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Not the cheapest of Chinese eateries but the quality more than makes up for it and is well above the usual chinese fair. A very good wine list too
