Working together with wife and Head Chef, Alice Lui who trained in Hong Kong and China.The restaurant is open seven days a week with a comprehensive a la carte menu from 2.00pm to 09.30pm. “There are three basic principles that I believe are essential for success,” Andrew adds.“The first is good cuisine; the second is good service and thirdly, a good environment.All our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked with the finest ingredients.

We have been frequenting the Garden restaurant for nearly thirty years, so I guess it is time to post a review!

In short, we have never had a bad meal here- it is always consistently good, without exception. The service is second to none, friendly, but unobtrusive. A great family run business. We have eaten at Chinese restaurants all over the world, but none ever come close to the quality here! There are no other Chinese restaurants in the area that I could recommend. We travel 30 miles to this one!

As you may have gathered.....I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I haven't been here for quite a while, it always used to be excellent! I was out with the kids for the day and thought we'd call in for a meal.
It was excellent in every way, food and service 1st class!

No reservation tonight but were quickly found a table for 6 although were told we had to be out by 7. Our fault because we had no reservation, who needs a reservation in a Chinese restaurant at 6 o'clock of an evening? It was really full, lots of children but as we had a couple we didn't mind!
The best bit here is the service and welcome. The food was great too, they couldn't do enough for us and as we had a 10 week old baby with us that was great. Chips were to die for!
The portions were not huge, which is unusual in a Chinese restaurant but that was good too.
Looking forward to my next visit.

i have asked for private party after holy communion for over 20 people.
i was able to chose from all variety of food and shop around the menu freely without any limitation to the offers etc!
i was able to negotiate the total price and was offered free hot drinks!
food was so amazing - fresh and delicious and the service was top class. the girls were looking after us with the private distance without impression of being watched and were fulfilling all our requests on spot.
i recommend that restaurant to anyone! you want be disappointed. you want eat quality - go there.
i have been back to the restaurant lots of times and never felt the quality was dropped down. it i nice to reply on good food and service.
