“Avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Awful place. Slow service. Rude staff. And tried charging for another table. Staff are simply not interested in getting the basics right. Waited almost 30 minutes before order was taken and no offer of any drinks.

“Used to like this place....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Eaten at this restaurant for the last few years but recently it has not been such a happy experience. Service is really slow and food was cold. Waiters and Waitresses seem rushed off their feet. Asked for a coffee and it took 15 mins! Also took them the bill10 mins to bring the bill, I went to give it to the waiter only to be told pay at reception on way out! Think I will have to try elsewhere. Shame because it has always had such a good reputation, and they don't have the Thai buffet anymore.

“Good food - authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Most Cantonese restaurants serve anglicised versions of the real thing, but most of the dishes here are similar to those I have eaten in China. The service is good and the quality excellent. You can tell how good it is by the number of Chinese people who eat here.

“Good food but still not addressed state of toilets”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Not been to Pacific for 12 months. We were welcomed on arrival and had no problems with service. Our waitress was very attentive. Food was very nice, only issues were the tofu in the sweet and sour tasted slightly odd, and the 'Szechuan' Quorn isn't very spicy.

But after 12 months, one of the toilets still isn't working. The taps don't work properly, and the electrical socket for the hand dryer was hanging out of the wall - I had to tell my son not to use it in case he got electrocuted. Why can't they get such basics right?

Based on that I can't recommend to anybody else.

“Rude staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

I took my Mother and a friend, we had one course each with drinks. The bill came with what I assumed to be discretionary 10% service charge of £4.80. As we were short of change we left about £3.50. The lady that took the money was extremely rude about it, she seemed to be a senior member of staff. And I thought we were in a recession. It's hardly high class dining in there.
