“Dependable for great Chinese food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Having got really fed up with disappointing local Chinese takeaway meals decided to splash out and booked a table for two at the Amber Regent. It is quite a while since we had been there but it was as dependable as ever. Almost full on a Sunday night is always a good sign even if the mains are on a half price offer! Food and service were as first class as always. So, it is a fair bit more than a local takeaway but well worth the extra and I am pleased that I can continue to recommend this as my number one choice for Chinese in Glasgow.

“Green light for Amber Regent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

A must go to Chinese restaurant in Glasgow. Excellent food complemented by friendly, efficient service. Staff are welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. Great atmosphere and comfortable. Usual warm welcome from woman in cloakroom. All in all a superb dining experience. Half price mains at certain times make for a high value experience at affordable prices.

“Vase next to me cost more than my house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

WOW what a restaurant! Nicest Chinese restaurant I have had the pleasure on visiting and first impressions was they do know there stuff had the options of chopsticks or knifes to eat your food. I opted to show off and tried to eat fried rice but gave up after several attempts. The staff looked extremley professional in their uniforms what gave the place that element of class. I had the duck which have to say tasted magnificent and also for such a establishment 3 courses did us perfectly and staff where always on hand to help. The reason for the title was that our table where sitting next to two last vases which to me if i smashed them due to clumsyness i was need to work for the next 80 years to pay for it. WILL BE RETURNING.
