“Food was beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

I have been to many Chinese restaurants, but I must say my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was presented lovely and tasted beautiful. The bill was fairly reasonable. My only qualm, if i was to have one was that Majority of the the staff were happy, polite and friendly, besides this one particular Chinese lady, that greeted us, quite rudely and was quite miserable, all the other members of staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Worth a visit!

“Oriental Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a Oriental taste extravaganza that really should be visited to enjoy. The staff are attentive and so very pleasant you feel like you have been welcomed to their home. We have eaten there many times and have never seen a difference in quality of service it is always 5 star.

If you are ever in Cowbridge this is my first recommendation for eating out, Prices are reasonable, well very good actually when you consider the quality of the meals, Their lunchtime menu is also excellent.

Try the Riverview even their Takeaway meals are as good as eating in/

“Super food, super service and super price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I have been to this Chinese restaurant many, many times and have never been disappointed. The food is authentic Chinese food, excellently cooked and presented by first rate staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The prices charged are also very good and well worth the money.
We recently went to the Chinese New Year event for the third successive year and as ever we were treated to a culinary delight. It was a set New Year menu with lobster as the second course. My wife, however, does not like lobster, but without requesting it, she was given crispy duck as an alternative and at no extra charge, and the amount given was sufficient for our party of four to share!
The pine cone sea bass was to die for, but there again that is typical of what we have come to expect of all of the food provided by this superb restaurant which, unlike many Chinese restaurants I have been to, does not leave that undesired 'after taste'!
The atmosphere inside the restaurant is always very warm and friendly and the staff always go that extra mile in aiming to please.
Many, many thanks to all the staff at the River View, especially Wing, Neng, Lan and Tao for giving us, as always, a New Years' evening to remember. May this year be a prosperous and highly successful one for the River View because they really do deserve it.
