Visited this Chinese restaurant on a Friday evening for the sit down and be served all you can eat menu. It costs £18.90 per person which is the most expensive one I have been to. The soup and starters were good and a nice choice.The reason I have only given an average mark is the main course was a let down. If you order a dish like Chicken in black bean sauce or any dish that has a sauce even vegetarian, the food is saturated. The sauce is very strong and thick and completely masked out any flavour of the food, my wifes vegetarian food dish was just the same. I tried a yellow bean sauce dish and that was the same which completely put me off ordering any thing else. The waiters were polite and attentive, the surroundings could do with a make over. If you are going there for a romantic chat don't bother as the noise from the other guests is so loud we had to shout at each other to be heard. I don't feel I got value for money and would not return.

Average Chinese restaurant. Food okay, nothing startling. Did feel a bit rushed and with two courses we were out within just under an hour. Was going to try another Chinese restaurant but that one was closed on a Monday. Wouldn't rush back, there are others to try.

Chester has lost some brilliant Chinese restaurants recently (Cherry Valley in Handbridge was the best Chinese restaurant by a mile), so we decided to give the Slow Boat another try. The food is really tasty and flavoursome. For starters, I especially like the Malaysian Satay Chicken Skewers and the Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings. The Duck with pancakes are brilliant and the main courses are small but well cooked. I especially like the Phad Thai Beef Rice Noodle topped with peanuts. The It's well worth going for the all-you-can-eat buffet which is only available on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. We will definitely be visiting again!
