Been to semaphore today for late lunch ,took parents for my mums 75th birthday,only 4 of us in the restaurant so was a bit worried at first ! BUT the service and the choice of food off the menu was absolutely fabulous and undoubtedly the best selection we have ever come across in any restaurant .the service and food was great and we rated it above mr chows in parkgate and only 20 mins away from home even better .Will be back here next week to try the buffet as it does not start till 6pm but cannot recommend this restaurant HIGHLY enough .ps had 3 course set menu , so much food left over had to ask about taking food home,they took food from table and brought back in take away style containers without a problem ,for us too enjoy at home .loved the place , well done to the owners .thanks

We are regulars at the 'Choi's' restaurant.
We always have the wor tip starter! Highly recommend that!!
The staff that work there are very well mannered and personable. You won't get any Chinese food anywhere other than here of such a high quality. The only downfall is this place needs recognising more. It's quiet midweek when we go. So you must visit!!

The buffet is not just great value for money, it is great food and selection, at double the price.
All dishes are monitored and regularly refilled. There were 10 different starters, 10 main meals and a large selection of sweet dishes, even sweets for the kids.
Even the beer is good

We have been here on numerous occasions over the past five years and have never been let down. We normally eat off the menu and the meals are fantastic. We have tried the buffet, but think, as nice as the buffet is, the food on the menu is better. Quite reasonably priced and lovely staff. In fact , we are going there tonight!

Went to semaphore, we were only diners there mid week, opted for a set Thai meal for two and set Chinese meal for two. Out of the two the Thai was the worst, poor quality meat, in fact looked unrecognisable, Thai fish cakes had a disgusting metallic taste to them. The only nice bit was the duck pancake rolls, because it was real meat. If we had liked the food we would have been very disappointed with portion size, think we would have been better choosing a main meal each, would not return, waste of money.
