It took about 5 minutes to seat us in an emoty restaurent. Food bland. Service non existent. No eye contact. Felt very strange. I thought i had done something to upset them. A straight 60 pounds for two she said at the till. No bill issued, no receipt given. Strangest place. Never ever would go if i was paid too.

Visited for the first time with friends to celebrate my birthday. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The menu is varied and quite extensive. One of our party needed gluten free options which was accommodated easily. The banquet was probably the best I've ever had. The portions are very generous. Overall we were all very impressed and would recommend and... More

My wife and I and two friends dined at Nikki Ips Restaurant whilst staying in Deganwy. The dining room is at the top of a flight of steep stairs and proved difficult to negotiate. The menu is quite extensive but fairly typical "Chinese" and quite highly priced. Portion sizes were large - too large for us and we were given... More

its a shame you felt this was, we do have seating available downstairs in either the wine bar or main restaurant but they do need requesting upon reservation, if you would have liked your table wiping down all you would have had to ask and we would have been more than happy to do so, we give warm towels out...

Nikki Ip's is a REAL chinese restaurant! None of those sloppy,slimy sauces on dishes! We have eaten there many times, and love it, always in the wine bar, as we always have 4 kids in tow, so we go during the day. We are Vegan, so at first glance i wasn't really sure what to order, but the manager is... More

As part of my business trip I visited this restaurant with several of my colleagues. We were seated upstairs. The food was plentiful and superbly cooked although the chilli beef could have been cooked a little longer and perhaps had slightly more chilli. That said we left the choice of dishes to the chef and he didn't disappoint. Excellent choice... More

thank you for your review, the design of the restaurant is intended to be different from the normal Chinese restaurant as we believe the food should take this place. we only use fillet of beef and find it surprising you found it fatty as it has no fat in it at all? and is always melt in the mouth.
