This is the best Chinese restaurant I've visited anywhere, not just in Belfast. Great food, really great service and good value.

We've been to Macau twice now as a family and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience on both occasions. Good selection of dishes and the food is consistently good. Portions are plentiful. The atmosphere is lively. Macau's BYOB policy is also a big plus.

Macau Restaurant is a perennial favourite of ours and we have been visiting this little gem with friends and family for more than 15 years. Its recommended to book as its still busy all these years later and surely a testament to its delicious food and value for money... A simple unadorned restaurant- no plastic Buddha's, fairy lights etc- and... More

The food is consistently excellent. The service is prompt and the staff friendly. the slow cooked cod is a firm favourite with me and my partner. Remember to bring your own wine, etc. This restaurant is always busy so it's a good idea to book. Love it!

We are regular visitors to this restaurant and we always enjoy good quality food and service. The staff are a delight. Being celiac, this restaurant offers a separate allergy menu that gives you the confidence that your meal will be gluten free. Booking a table in advance is essential.
