“Horrid service! George and his wife are horrid owners!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The food is amazing! but the owners attitudes stink! and even though they receive a bad review, they will not give a damn! if it wasn't for the food I would never step foot in those arrogant rude peoples restaurant! as a restaurant owner service and attitude is the most important... with George & his wife they are the worst people I have ever come across in my life! my father was disgusted with the way George and his wife spoke when we were ordering... pathetic service and pathetic people!

“Unsatisfied”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

They are not very helpful and the owner is very rude. I placed a telephonic order and when i got there an hour ago my order was still not done. The owner told me that if I'm not happy i must just go.... Very unprofessional

“Finest Chinese Restaurant in the World”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Chef George Wu and his wife Hong run an unpretentious venue with food better than the best I have eaten in China. Routinely our first choice in Chinese. Fresh ingredients and great hospitality. Always good to ask for the "Chinese" menu. Parties of about 10 can book a private room with a lazy susan.

“Dinner date”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Food and service needs to be improved. Whilst the menu is varied, they really need to pay more attention to detail. Parking is limited, they can definately enhance to make this a great dining experiance.

“Another very good visit”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Generally the standard of Asian food (apart from Indian curries) in Durban is poor, but China Plate is one of the better restaurants. Excellent service, generous portions and fresh ingredients make for a pleasant meal. The house specialty of garlic langoustines in their shells is a highlight and they are very well prepared so surprisingly easy to peel.
