“Great restaurant, gorgeous food and fab staff!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We had a Living Social voucher to use so decided to go over the recent Bank Holiday weekend.
The staff were very friendly, attentive and welcoming, checking when we arrived where we'd parked to ensure we weren't in a clamping zone and offering advice on a more suitable parking spot.

Drinks were very reasonably priced, £2.80 for a pint of Boddingtons and £10.95 for a bottle of house wine. The food was delicious, prawn crackers were served complimentary before our soups, I had scallop, prawn, squid and asparagus which was delicious and my partner had crab and sweetcorn, again very tasty. For starters I went for the dim sum which was fresh, hot and authentic, my partner went for the salt and pepper ribs which were also very good, a large portion with a real kick. Our mains were fresh and plentiful, I opted for chicken with green peppers and my partner had fillet staek in a black pepper sauce served on a sizzling plate. The steak was particularly good, very, very tender. We chose mixed chinese vegetables and noodles with beansprouts for our side dishes, again both were delicious and good portion sizes.

I'd highly recommend the China Rose, we felt well looked after and had a really enjoyable evening. The Living Social voucher was a great way to discover somewhere we'd never tried before but now we know how great it is we will certainly be back.

“Mid week treat”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

We went to the china rose restaurant last night. We had booked as we had a pre paid voucher, I am so glad we did it was very busy. Staff were attentive and pleasant. The meal was fabulous, salt & pepper chips were to die for. The portions were adequate in fact they could have fed 3 people. The surroundings were very clean, and nice atmosphere. Will certainly be returning.

“Most impressed”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We live in Culcheth and are regular customers of the China Rose. Initailly, we were underwhelmed and found the food a bit bland, but over the past six months, they have really taken raised their game and are now producing consistently good food. Soups are excellent, fresh tasting rather than the gloopy texture you sometimes get. The two tone prawn crackers are a tasty novelty. Mixed starters are fab, spare ribs meaty not fatty, crispy duck what it says on the tin.

Mains are now very good - sweet & sour, black bean, all the usual combos work really well. We tend to go for chicken and prawn as we prefer these to beef, which sometimes disappoints. Egg fried rice very tasty.

What has really impressed in the last few weeks is their approach to gluten free dietary requirements. They have offered informed advice on their menu and have prepared GF dishes from scratch without a murmur. Well done, China Rose. No fuss, no faff - just good food, freshly prepared for the customer's needs. Who could ask for more? Culcheth's finest.



Without doubt, a restaurant worth seeking out.
