Description: The Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant has been welcoming discerning diners to Bangor for 32 years and remains a heavenly haven of culinary excellence.Proprietor Andrew Lui established the Garden Hotel & Cantonese Restaurant in 1981 following a chemical engineering degree and career, and is now a leading authority on Cantonese cooking. 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. The Garden Cantonese Restaurant goes a little step further by offering dishes to suit vegans, lacto vegetarians, ovo-lacto vegetarians and customers with nut, dairy or gluten allergies. We also understand the importance of healthy eating and use only the healthiest of oils and lean produce in our cuisine.

“Best in Bangor”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Recommended by B&B owner and we realise why, this restaurant go out of their way to make you feel welcome. My wife requires a gluten free diet and everything except 2 items on the menu were gluten free. The staff knew their business and ensured you were well looked after, nothing was too much trouble.the food was excellent and good portions.would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting the Bangor area.

“Wish I lived nearer!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

A really enjoyable meal here on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of room for the two of us. Drink prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. We had prawn toast, chicken and sweetcorn soup and spicy chicken wings to start all of which were non-greasy and fresh. For mains we had beef satay and Thai style chicken which again were fresh and not at all heavy. The staff were friendly and polite and took the time to chat with us. We don't live locally but would definitely go back again if we are in the area. The food prices weren't cheap but reflected the quality of the food.

“Still the best in the area (Bangor/Caernarfon)”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Been eating there for years now and it's still the same quality although sometime some dishes are not hot enough, but apart from that, still good and good waiting staff some restaurant could learn from them.

“Gluten free friendly”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Having been a coeliac for 30 years this is only the 2nd Chinese meal I have had in that time and by far the best. Alex was well informed as to what was gluten free and what wasn't. My 1st choice main course wasn't but it was easy to choose a 2nd which was.

Don't be put off by the exterior, the interior is fine and the staff friendly and welcoming.

We will definitely visit again when in the area.
