I don't even know where to start.. came here for a family reunion because we came here a few years back and it WAS good quality food. We had a banquet for four people (2 x chef, 2 x capitol) the chicken & sweetcorn soup was nice then it went downhill from there. The ribs didn't have no meat on... More

Was with three friends for the set menu New Year banquet. The food was superb as was the service and entertainment. Not a seat to spare. And for those from Blackpool the Birkenhead tunnel is at the end of the street☺ Unfortunately the card machine was down so I had to go to RBS nearby. I do wonder if this... More

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions but we were disappointed with the meal we had here for Chinese New Year. It was obvious that staff were trying their best with a very busy evening but the service and food were not worth the money. Parts of the meal were forgotten and we had to ask several times... More

A party of us went to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a banquet. The food was amazing - set menu and they also had dragon dancing. Great food and staff. They were friendly and efficient. Prices were reasonable. Had a great evening would recommend giving it a try. Normal menu food also looked amazing

Just had a takeaway for 5 people that cost over £100. The quality of this restaurant has gone significantly downhill. The spring rolls both meat and vegetable were inedible. The hoisin sauce to go with the duck was so watered down that it just slid off the pancakes. The prawn toast is still good but not as thick as it... More

Visited here a few times since takeover. The food is lovely but have to say they could improve on some things. The ribs definitely need improving upon, have tried the different ones and none of them are really good. Maybe add a bit of star anise to them for the taste. Also the starters in the evening set buffet are... More

Had a great night in the capitol, originally went in for some take out but then ended up staying after the waiter convinced us. Was the best decision had a lovely relaxed evening with great service matched with top quality food. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

There is no doubt that the owner is not as genuinely friendly as the previous owners and the food is not as good as it used to be but that having been said, they have managed to keep most of the previous owners recipes and are doing a reasonable job of producing good quality food. We stopped getting meals some... More

The quality of the food here was excellent,we had the Capitol Banquet for 2 which is very reasonably priced. We had the owners serving us and they could not do anymore for us, service was top notch. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
