    Made to feel welcome when we arrived, were attend to by service personnel, who were friendly and helpful. Food was served very professionally and with a good acceptable wait between courses and were asked if we needed top up drinks. Food was excellent and sufficient for all 4 of us, wonderful evening, you have never disappointed us Banquet, thank you

    Service was excellent as usual; food was served quickly after order. Cantonese Roast Duck was below usual very high standard - the meat was not as moist as usual; the crispy skin appeared to have been "over roasted" (or heat too high) almost like "deep fried". It could have been "warmed up" by "pouring hot oil over it". The Young Chow Fried Rice was good. The Three Treasures (Stuffed Bean Curd/ Aubergine/ Pepper) was excellent. The Salt & Pepper Eel was the best I have come across in the U.K. I would say it matches Hong Kong.

    We have enjoyed Banquet in the past but something went wrong with the service this time and there were long delays for our food, so much so that we had to cancel the final dish as 2 hours were up.

    It was extremely busy (which is a good sign), and it was interesting that the majority of customers were oriental which means the food is good. The food was excellent quality and we loved it. I do question why a plate of pak choi costs nearly £12. We enjoyed the meal very much.
