Been here many times over the years and I can't fault it. The food is great and the staff too. This is but far the best Chinese I have ever had.

I LOVE Chinese food, and I can tell you I will never go in this restaurant anymore. The vegetarian meal we had was just awful and ridiculously expensive.

We ended up here by default at a meeting of work colleagues. We had arranged meeting elsewhere, it was closed so we ended up at the Happy Gathering as members of the party had been before. It's a large restaurant, it was busy (Thursday evening so pretty impressive) but they still managed to find us a table for eight. We... More

We had a lovely meal there at the weekend. All the better for knowing what I was eating was gluten free and yummy. My husband loved dishes from their Dim Sum menu. What can I say other than it was so good we went back again the following night to sample more delightful dishes. The staff were excellent, majority of... More

If you can't finish the food that you have ordered they will happily give you a take away bag. So my advice is order anything you fancy... More

Came here with 3 friends for an evening meal on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy but they were quick to find us a table and quick to ask for our drinks order. After that it was difficult to track down a waiter! We had a set menu for 4, deciding this was the best option given the sheer volume... More

We went out to celebrate my mothers 84th birthday. We arrived at 7 and there were only 3 tables taken. First drinks took ages to arrive and every round after took about 15-20 mins to arrive even after chasing up the staff!!! They then put dishes in front of us ready for the food and then took them away as... More
