Really enjoyed dinner here - ate midweek and a few tables were occupied, mostly by Chinese people which I took as a good sign. The menu has quite a few vegetarian dishes including the vege duck with pancakes that I chose. Delicious, good value and great service.

Popped in for set lunch (£6.90 for three courses). I chose spare ribs which were tender with delicious sauce, followed by Singapore Noodles. Finished with crisp banana fritters and syrup. Service was quick and efficient.

Took some friends who were visiting us from outside the area. Was surprised to find a set Christmas menu for £25 a head available as hadn't realised this. All 4 of us ordered this. It was amazing, all freshly cooked and beautifully presented, lots of it, so much we couldn't eat it. 3 courses, very fresh, tasty and all of... More

On business on my own so fancied a Chinese, used TA to locate a restaurant close to my hotel. Chose Taste of China. The first impression was that it was clean and well lit, but the biggest plus was the number of Asian people eating there. Now that has to be a big tick in any Chinese restaurant. I ordered... More

Love to eat here when I visit family in Portsmouth. We have been dining here for a good few years now and it is always delicious food served by friendly and happy staff who work hard making sure service is efficient and customers are looked after. We usually have one of the set menus as there's something for everyone and... More

We landed here after looking for a Chinese nearby. All green outside, the place inside was ok though. Service was good, crispy Duck ok, average chicken dish and fried rice, nothing else worth remembering. We got out as it was getting more full and louder at the back.

Found this on TA. When I arrived (at 6.30pm) nearly all the diners were Chinese. This I find reassuring. The food was very good and service was prompt and friendly. Great hot and sour soup. The owner was in attendance keeping the staff on their toes. It was a very cold night and the entrance door did not shut properly... More

We have been coming to this Chinese Restaurant for well over 10 years and have never been disappointed. The chicken satay is the best you will ever taste, and the service very friendly and swift. It is always full of Chinese people which speaks for itself. In our opinion, this is the best Chinese restaurant in Portsmouth and definitely worth... More

Nine of us met up and sat at the large circular tables which are always good for a larger party. I speak for us as a couple: we did not enjoy the sweet and sour hong kong style dish which had an uncooked floury taste. We found the meal acceptable but with no wow factor. Service was good. Decor a... More

I dined here with friends on Saturday night. We pre booked our table but chose to eat early and the restaurant was fairly quiet although it was getting busier by the time we left Our waiting staff were very slick and efficient and were very accommodating with a high chair for the two yr old we had with us.
