Fantastic service and excellent food. Always recommend Welcome for a great night out.
We hadn’t visited in a long time but the quality of the food was as amazing as I remembered it to be. A lovely treat for my mum and me. Their Covid guidance and actions were clear and tables well spaced so we felt very at ease eating there. Staff were very kind and attentive. Thanks!
Absolutely fantastic experience it was my daughters 18th and the treatment was first class well above what I was expecting will definitely be back again
Lovely restaurant with tasty food and good sized portions. Could not fault the service - we were served quickly and the staff were very friendly and so helpful.
Very helpful and friendly staff, the food was excellent and tasted so fresh. The restaurant was pretty busy but very well spaced out so I felt very safe given the current situation.
Will definitely be back
Best Chinese restaurant in Belfast for many years.
Excellent food, efficient service friendly atmosphere would definitely recommend this venue to anyone
Fabulous Chinese - easily the best in Belfast - would echo the standards of the Good Earth in London - although the Welcome is probably slightly better!
Another delightful meal at this excellent restaurant. Brought a relative for a birthday meal, we were a party of 8. Everyone enjoyed their food and we all had different choices, which allowed for tasting each others.
We had brought a cake which was delivered at just the right moment, complete with plates and knife to cut it.
The staff are always pleasant and friendly
Great dining experience and the manager is so friendly
Delicious Chinese in Belfast
Great food and service!
Really friendly staff who are always ready to help!
Great service and friendly staff. Food is of a very high standard. Always our first choice for a family occasion.
Food was really good. The service was great. Have enjoyed our experience everytime we have been.
All good, very quiet, but a Sunday night. Food good. An enjoyable experience.
This Cantonese restaurant is beautiful. The food is outstanding and the staff are amazing. Will Definitely be back here soon. The prices are good and I would highly recommend it.
Beautiful food at the Welcome. We have been on numerous occasions and are never disappointed. The staff are first class always attentive and very friendly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant
Nice authentic Cantonese style food with a warm welcome. Not pretentious and snobby like some and a complete mix of customers.
Lovely meal and the staff were really friendly and helpful
One of the best Chinese restaurants in the country. Excellent service. Great food. Good value.
Very good food, price and service. Would recommend.
Fantastic, been a few years since we’ve been to the Welcome, but won’t be leaving it so long until the next time! Top quality food, excellent service and great service! Nothing pretentious, doing the basics right!
Have been here many times over the years but I really feel the standards have slipped. The food was fine but nothing special given the competition they now have in the city. It was everything else though that was awful. We had to wait on a row of chaired for 10 mins until our table was ready but these were right beside a table of diners I think we both felt very awkward. When we were seated it was a table in the rear corner of the restaurant which was blocking the fire exit door , we were appalled at this blatant lack of regard for health and safety. There were two stacks of chairs to our left, if they tidied these away it would make room for a table . Lazy and unsafe practice and certainly not a pleasant environment for paying customers.
Lovely welcome as always, good service, regularly checked on to see all ok and everyone happy with bill. Great food of course
Lovely food, generous portions, good ambience. Staff were very attentive and pleasant, even though they were busy
Service and standard of food both excellent. The overall experience was very good and we will visit Welcome again.
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.
love this restaurant, the welcome in is friendly, the service is excellent, the food is superb and the restaurant is very well maintained.
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.
