Fantastic meal especially so when you consider the industrial scale of the service, a packed restaurant and an 8 course banquet, each course absolutely faultless and well cooked The dragon dancers were good, the lady singer, not my cup of tea, but ok and then theres the "comedian", this would have been a 5 star review but for him, probably...

Table for seven, we had two types of set meals between us and mixed and matched, food was absolutely stunning, too much for us to eat. Including drinks it was £20 each, great atmosphere, lovely staff, can't wait to return 😁

We arrived at around 18.20 so we were first through the door before the rush of people around 18.45 onwards but I have to say that the service was fantastic. We sat down with the menus and ordered drinks which seemed to arrive instantly. The food that we ordered was similarly speedy. I had the special curry whilst my colleague... More

The starters were lovely but unfortunately not enough! The mains were plentiful and delicious. The staff tried really hard and were rushed off their feet but there just... More

I am amazed by the reviews on this restaurant. I last went here many years ago and it was lovely. Today went for chinese new year oh dear!! Totally chaotic. There were far too many tables to be served efficiently. Service was sporadic and it was a lottery as to what you got. The two starters we were served were... More

The New Garden is one of my favourite Chines restaurants.... and I visit often. Not only is the food outstanding, but the atmosphere and the service is also fantastic. Looking forward to visiting again for Chinese New Year! I highly recommend the New Garden to anyone who hasn't visited before.
