After reading mixed reviews on here about The Lucky Bowl I thought I would try it for myself as I am in Inverness on business for the next 6 days. Firstly was told by staff that I couldn't order what I wanted from the menu as they were the old menus....., ordered from the New menu a takeaway and was... More

Took 2 adults and 4 children for an early dinner. Quick service, helpful staff. Food was fantastic! Not greasy at all; flavourful and delicious. Not the cheapest Chinese but good size portions for the price.

Fancied a Chinese meal during a recent stay in Inverness and after checking out TripAdvisor decided to give the Lucky Bowl a go. Although the location is central it is upstairs and shares an entrance with a local hotel so could be easily overlooked. The staff were friendly and the menu was fairly extensive. Good portion sizes and tasty. Reasonably... More

So first time in Inverness and we (daughter) wanted a Chinese meal, well specifically noodles. Food arrived on time, and the waitress was really lovely however food was adequate at best. Overall rating was "meh!"

One of the best Chinese meals I have had. The steamed dumplings with fresh chilli and soy sauce were delicious and as a starter more than enough for two. The sea bass with ginger was beautifully cooked and presented. The Isla Negra Sauvignon Blanc was a refreshing accompaniment. The fortune cookie always a nice touch at the end

Visited here a couple of times over New Year for Takeaway. Absolutely superb food, had the Special Fried Rice with Chicken Balls and also the mini pancake rolls. Even gave us a nice free calendar, great place and friendly staff.

Came here with the family after hearing it to be "the only authentic Chinese restaurant in the Highlands" and was not disappointed! The food was so tasty and very authentic, the best fried green beans i've had outside of China! Would definitely recommend the cumin lamb too but only if you can handle your spice.

Had the set meal option which was very nice at a good price. Staff was friendly and service was nice and quick. Only criticism is it was a little cold right next to the window and all of the staff weren't appropriately dressed to wait tables. Wasn't expecting a proper waiter/waitress but trousers and a shirt would have been better.

Thank Greg C
