Not the same since it has moved to the new location. You can tell you're in a nightclub not a restaurant.

Rendezvous used to be one of our favourite places to go until it moved, food is still good but service is an unorganised shambles, the authentic Chinese environment has disappeared and it has turned into a 'cram as many people in the building as possible to make the most money as service is not important style restaurant.' This is the... More

I did enjoy the Rendezvous at its previous location, after eating here I won't be going again. We turned up at 6 with no reservation and although the host was pleasant enough he did seem aggrieved that we had not booked. He told us we must eat and be out in an hour! We actually didn't mind this as we... More

OK so it's lost a little something since it moved to Mission nightclub, but it looks stunning and the food is still to die for. Always packed because it's so good. Parking is a problem in its new home. Also I fear the service may become compromised due to the sheer size of the place, but they are experts, I've... More

I recently went here and had the all you can eat early bird special that was about £18.50. Although it is all you can eat, the waiters were very clear that if I did not eat all my food I would be charged extra, I felt this was unfair and sort of spoilt the feel of the all you can... More

Arrived, quite a dark place for lighting which unfortunately proved difficult in reading the menu. Diet coke and normal coke was flat, no bubbles, whether this was because it was the first drawn off, not sure, but decided against another and went for water. meal itself average, nothing to indicate that we would come again.

Been here so many times before but not to this new venture in old town, parking on a weds nights was a nightmare. Wasn't happy with having to wait 20 mins to be seated when i booked at 19:30 either. Never the less the refurbishment and decor of this place was stunning and as always the standard of food was... More

to start with the food is delicious, but by no means is the way it's served practical, not sure if it's normal but chopsticks and a spoon is no way to eat. The food came in dribs and drabs and twice a staff member approached our table and asked if we had order XYZ dish, which we hadn't. One of... More

We met up with our old neighbours for our usual get-together. I had been to the restaurant in its former guise but had yet to try this new venue. The place looks really impressive when you walk in, a little dark but that just added to the atmosphere I felt. We were greeted very cheerfully by the staff and seated... More

Tried to book a table for 6 on a Saturday evening at 8pm. Was told that we would have to vacate the table by 10pm as it would be open for the night club or we would have to pay 10.00 per person to stay at our table. What a rip off. Couldn't believe it .
