Gorgeous fresh food. All 6 of us enjoyed everything.
Was travelling on my own in Belfast on business and fancied some Chinese food. The Welcome did not disappoint! A delicious spicy prawn dish, don't remember the name but the host recommended it for me. Rice was excellent too. I'll be back.
The staff were lovely and it's a lovely setting. However, I did not enjoy my Chicken Chow Mein. The noodles were burnt to the black plate they gave me. Also I didn't like the texture of the chicken pieces so I left them on the plate.
Visited The Welcome again last Saturday night.
Brilliant, as usual.
Belfast Chinese restaurant in Belfast.
Fabulous food, and great value! Staff very attentive and ambience perfect.
We had a great night for my husbands birthday. Staff was fantastic, and most of the food was amazing. I did think it was a little expensive, however, the portions were very big and there was a lot of food leftover. I think if I went again I would consider sharing the main course at least.
Food was outstanding. The staff could not have been more friendly. Will be back whenever next in Belfast.
Such a wonderful place to eat. Food was delicious, especially the monkfish special & mushrooms in black bean sauce. Wonderful service & everything you expect from a quality Chinese restaurant.
Fantastic food. Really enjoyed our lunch. Will definitely be back.
Delicious food great service best fluffy fried rice ever tasted !
Always welcoming as its name. Food excellent, service with a smile every time. Coffee top up very much appreciated.
We travel from Ballyclare to this Chinese. The food in unreal, so fresh. The staff especially the manager Michael is so friendly and makes you feel like you've known them for years. I recommend this Chinese to everyone I meet. It's so hard to find a nice sit in Chinese, I'm so glad we found this place.
Food was delicious, staff very friendly and made us feel welcome, service could have been slightly better , think because it was very busy they forgot desert menu , but made up for it by recommending places for us to visit while in Belfast , would definitely go back and recommend as great restaurant to visit
Lovely Restaurant, great food and outstanding service, i'll ne back to quote a phrase
Fantastic food, great quality and taste just like I remembered, staff were very attentive and timing between courses was spot on. Will definitely return next time I’m in Belfast.
Beautiful food, attentive service without being overbearing. Will definitely be returning.

Amazing restaurant! Delicious food! Very friendly staff.
Great food, great service, always have a lovely night in The Welcome. A family favourite!
Exceptional food and service - the best oriental food in Belfast!
Brilliant service with all tables taken. That speaks for itself. I had amazing crab to start with salt and chilli. The onions and peppers with it were fresh and the chilli just give the right amount of hotness. For
Main I had monkfish served with noodles that were delicious and the fish was cooked beautifully . A great atmosphere and i will be back again definitely.
The food was of a standard you would expect from your local take-away restaurant. Service was fair but nothing special and we were subjected to Christmas music throughout the meal. don't go here if you wish to impress. Disappointing.
This restaurant was a childhood favourite I had fond memories of but haven't been to for circa 12 years since living overseas. We remembered Mr Wong well from large family dinners and I was looking forward to going back. What a shame to be met with miserable staff to the point where we felt unwelcome, perhaps it was the end of a long Christmas season but service was of the most utilitarian kind, not a single greeting was uttered. We were shunted in and out of the empty restaurant over the course of a 90 minute lunch which served only to eradicate any of the nostalgia felt towards the welcome. A shame, the food was fine, not as good as I remember but I'm sure it would have tasted better if it was delivered with a smile. I'd brought friends from Hong Kong with me assuming they'd like the restaurant as much as I did in the past but they left wondering what the fuss was about.
Lovely food. Great value. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
The Welcome was the best for Chines Food in the 1980's and is still the best
Second time here and again the food was top quality and also very friendly staff, apart from that it would be nicer to have a brighter room.
Nice restaurant with very attentive service. Good value for money.
Only flaw was than a companion is seafood allergic and the restaurant couldn't advise on whether the fried rice was seafood free. Other than that a good experience.
Nice place staff were very frendily food was ok nothing special but was very shocked at price it was very expensive for all that you got and paying extra for your side's that would come with any meal in any other chinese restaurant was very disappointing. Would not rush back any time soon .
Lovely meal although quite expensive at£15 for sweet and sour chicken with rice.
Maintains a very high standard. Service, atmosphere and cuisine consistent throughout the years- the ‘go to’ Chinese restaurant in Belfast.
Great food, great staff good price and very nice venue ...will as always go back
Very bad slippery floor foid was ok not great have had better food in takeout Chinese wouldn’t recommend it to anyone and wouldn’t go back myself
Food was beautifully cooked. Attention to detail and customer service 10 out of 10 !
The welcome restaurant is well named, the staff are always welcoming and friendly and the food is great. They are easily the best chinese restaurant in Belfast for special occasions or casual dining on the way to somewhere else.
