Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered duck spring rolls as a starter really missing the duck very disappointed better duck spring rolls at the well known freezer shop.Mains were king prawn fried rice 4/10 not a great flavour from the prawn . My wife had chicken and pineapple with fried rice again disappointed. At 8 o'clock on a Wednesday night there was only 14 people in a restaurant that probably seat 100+ maybe the people of Coleraine know better. Really can't see me back at this restaurant.

My wife and two of our friends visited this establishment on Saturday 4th of May. My experience at this restaurant was both good and bad however the bad overweighted the good. We had only sat down and in less than a minute a young man asked us if we were ready to order drinks (we hadn’t even looked at the menu) the same man asked us a total of 3 times within 5/10 minutes if we were ready to order, which made us feel rushed. Our starters arrived fast and we enjoyed them. We had then got warm plates for our main course, however we sat with the plates and no food for about 5 minutes which didn’t make sense as our plates were then cold and noticed that this was a common occurrence within the restaurant as a few other tables seemed to have been sitting with empty plates. The food itself was flavourful and was high quality. The views of the water are beautiful. The atmosphere was lively and staff were friendly however some seemed rushed as the girl who served us our food physically ran back down the restaurant this along with being rushed to order was not polite. Overall our food and drinks were delicious and our interactions with most of the staff was pleasant.

There is nothing authentic about this place. We didn't see a single Chinese person during our visit. The food was obviously prepared in advance and left sitting around too long. The crispy duck wasn't crispy, the soft noodles weren't and when you order beansprouts, they should just be beansprouts and not a concoction of onions, carrots etc. The staff were very polite yes, but not chinese.

We had really looked forward to coming here for dinner as it has been several years since we were last here and we believed that it had a very good reputation. We were given a time of 8pm to arrive (we did not know that they do a Shoppers Special from 5-7pm and this seems to be when 80% of customers arrive as it is a well priced deal) We had 2 children with us but we were not given any children's menu (I should have asked but I would have thought that if they had a children's menu, they would have given it to our 8 year old) . So we ordered from the main a la carte menu. We ordered 2 starters, 3 main courses, 1 non-alcoholic cocktail and 1 (flat) coke (although it did not taste at all of Coke - it was one of those drinks pretending to be Coke). The bill came to around £85 for 2 adults and 2 children. The chicken and cashew nut did not taste at all like any other chicken and cashew nut that I have ever had - it was utterly bland and an unusual texture of sauce - not pleasant at all. Other meals at the table were more successful. We had waited and waited and waited for our main courses. On 3 occasions members of staff came to apologise for the delay. It was as if our order had been mislaid. No discount to the bill was offered and no free drinks were offered - even though the wait didn't seem to be due to number of customers - the place was now quiet. Overall, it was just alright. I certainly would not return unless it was the lunchtime offer or Shoppers Special. The prices were just too high on the a la carte menu.

Really impressed with the food and service on our first visit. We were a bit nervous due to the recent bad reviews on here, but we did not experience this at all. Very friendly welcome on arrival. Staff were very attentive throughout the visit. There was a shopper supper special offer on, but as our first visit, decided to go for a few things off the main menu to see what the quality of food was like. We had the Oriental Platter and Wonton Soup - both delicious and promptly served. Then for main we had the special sizzling Chow Mien and Kung Po Chicken with Noodles. When the food arrived we asked for chop sticks and the waitress came back with chop sticks and rice bowls - superb! The mains were really tasty - the Kung Po was just right - not too spicy. Overally were very happy with the visit and would happily come again.

I called to book a table but the water margin does not have disabled access. We were extremely disappointed. This is not good enough in 2024.

Usually great food with great customer service but not tonight. Average to poor food not acknowledged by staff. Having visited in the past this is a shame. Yellow card for this establishment. Sorry

Lovely location and ambience, but the fillet beef slices in black bean sauce tasted like a left over Sunday Roast, come on £19.50 for a small skillet, seriously !! The Sweet & Sour Pork Hong Kong style was just chewy and fatty, overall hugely dissapointing.

Our table was booked for 19.15hrs on 9th September and the occasion was my wife's birthday. We arrived early and were probably seated at 19.15. Our orders were taken at approximately 19.20. Our starters arrived at approximately 19.30. All good so far. Our main course's didn't arrive until approximately 20.10. The reason given was " a large table was being served." The food was excellent but the service was awful and the reason unacceptable. The 2 star rating is for poor service.

We had an excellent meal at the Water Margin. It was Bank Holiday Monday and we availed of the ‘Shoppers Menu’ - 3 courses for the price of your main course. I’m my case this was £19.50. Absolutely excellent value. The food was great - each course was tasty and portions were generous. Service was prompt. Staff members (without exception) were efficient and friendly. I would happily recommend this restaurant. It is ideal for couples, families and larger groups.

Delighted from start to finish. Staff were so helpful. We chose the lunch time menu £14 for 2 courses, either starter and main or main and dessert. We opted for main and dessert. First class food and the portions were not small, they were hot and very tasty. Restaurant decor was fresh and clean. We will be back very soon.
