Always as a hungover student. Good filling food with some decent tastes. Wouldn't me much more than hangover food for me though. Decent price for the food.

I went quite late on a weekday and wanted some variety without maxing out my credit card in an a la carte restaurant. I'd spotted China China by chance as it's not on the main food strip in the area. They offer a takeaway option where you fill a small takeaway container for 3.99. I was going to go for... More

We come here regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the extra service provided by Tata at the Teppanyaki is brilliant. She makes a fantastic spicy chicken to order, the best in Belfast. All the staff are so friendly. Well done to all

Regrettable decision to come here. Food very bland and tasteless, hardly ate anything. Cheesecakes are cheap value products. Kids enjoyed pancakes but that's about it. Very dated decor. Would not return

Called in here on a Sunday and it was like a cattle market! Our table was right in front of the (very limited) buffet so we were constantly being knocked into and our chairs tripped over. The whole place was grubby, unkempt and poorly organised. Cheap yes, tasty? Not so much. Worth it to spend a few pounds extra for... More

I haven't been here in a couple of years. Decor needs updating. Good choice of food. Very limited draft beers, they have 2. 3 if you count Guinness in a can. Food was very tasty and for £9 a head is was OK. Desserts very limited. One of the fridges that contained fresh fruit was off and sitting at 20c... More

I have been here before but I will not be back. Firstly our table was in a cramped area beside a fire escape door. Over looked this though as it was a busy time and we made no prior booking. (Never mind any health and safety breach of where the table was situated) Service was abysmal. Took three attempts where... More
