After visiting a nearby restaurant and being let down with a booking, our group of 11 tried Gonbay a few doors up. Friendly greeting and asked us to wait for a table to be sorted. When we were all seated, we ordered, I went for the fishcake starters which were very tasty, and went for the Vermicella chow mein for... More

Turned up here on a Saturday night but were seated immediately. Restaurant was busy. Food served promptly all meals were enjoyable. A service charge of 10% was added to the bill when it arrived. Lovely food if a bit on the expensive side.

Having been to the Gombay a handful of times and living within the area all my life this restaurant is ideal. The food here for my money is the best Chinese food for miles around with only the Choy Hing in Sale on a par with it. The staff here are very courteous and friendly. “BUT” herewith my big major...

We ate there with friends on a Monday night and it was quiet (which was a very pleasant change from the usual din of most restaurants nowadays). Large tables with lovely linen. The food was delicious and the service excellent. I chose from the "early" menu which was very reasonably priced. But even the standard menu was not very expensive.... More

Once again I have visited The Gonbay and once again it continues to exceed. The food is lovely. The service is excellent. The ambience is outstanding. Value for money also. If you haven't been yet then you really must. You won't regret it. In fact it would be something to regret if you didn't go.

So, it happened like this. We ordered our food but no-one had taken our drinks orders. We therefore ordered our drinks at the same time. When our starters arrived, the drinks hadn't. The drinks did arrive shortly afterwards, but by then one of our starters had gone back - they had got confused with the soup orders, and they brought... More
