The Cathay Rendezvous is a well-established Chinese restaurant on King Street, Bristol’s oldest thoroughfare. Behind the elegant 18th century facade is a series of rooms on two floors. Named after the collection of world-famous Nanking Cango porcelain on display, the main royal blue-coloured dining space is the Nanking Room. The extensive menu broadly covers the main culinary traditions of China - Mandarin, Cantonese and Szechuan - with main courses usually satisfying most taste buds and hunger levels… aromatic crispy duck, soft shell crab, Canton fillet steak flambe. Those who prefer to have their decision made for them, the set menus can be relied on. The Sunday lunch ‘eat as much as you like for £13.95 special is popular.

    Our visit was for a birthday meal. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good. We chose quite spicy dishes. The food was not piled high (thank goodness) but in reasonable sized portions. We like to leave a restaurant wanting more not uncomfortably full or with a bag full of leftovers and that's exactly how it was. Will definitely book again.

    The last time we visited was 8 years ago, we gave it a very wide berth dur to the bad experience with the food and service. Happily I can now see that things are very much improved, still a bit chilly throughout the restaurant

    Was on a weekend away with my partner and fancied a Chinese. This place was just 3 minutes walk from our hotel and had good reviews so we booked...Lovely layout and good, friendly service. The food quality was excellent with my partner saying it was probably the best Chinese she had ever tasted...A lovely evening and would definitely visit again.

    Wide menu, we had Sunday buffet, plenty of choice to be had, you could order as much as you like, as long as you do not waste food. It was cooked to order, we did wait for some items which meant some of our party were eating and some weren't. Very polite staff.
