Been coming to this restaurant for 20 years in Hale & Knutsford. Staff are now very surly and rude. Food portions are small. Too busy with takeaways and you can't get through the door or get a drink. They think they are doing you a favour serving you. Shame this restaurant has gone down the pan as used to be... More

I have to say I wasn't keen going to man zen. But I was quite surprised how good the food was. Unfortunately I can't say same thing about the service. It was below par . Worth a visit

Nice ambiance, staff can be a little 'short' during busy periods, but, the food s first class. Portions are just right and served correctly. Chinese beer available but the only let down is the wine list. Not many New world wines, and your selection may have 'run out'. Still worth it for the food. Drink Chinese tea!

We have not been for years. Saturday night full restaurant people waiting for take outs all this would lead me to think the food must be very good. The meal was really exceptional. I had booked a table and seated in the only one reserved immediately the owner remembered my daughter and I from at least two years prior even... More

Arrived at restaurant for a booked table, couldn't get to the reception desk for the hordes of people waiting for their takeaways, no acknowledgement of our arrival, no apology that table wasn't ready, everybody moving around frantically, nowhere to sit and wait for table, surly attitude - shocking customer service. Expressed my concerns and disappointment in an e mail -... More

Whenever we eat here we always enjoy it. Tasty food and helpful service. Not always that busy if eating early evening but that means the service is even more attentive. Varied menu at a reasonable price.

Dined on an evening as part of a group of 9. We shared starters and main courses. The service was excellent - friendly and fast. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice and spacious. Every course I tasted was fantastic. The main that I chose was my favourite - Monk fish / scallops and King prawns in ok sauce.... More
