Came here for a meal with a colleague and it is one of the best Chinese / Cantonese meals I have ever had. Really wonderful food at reasonable prices (we qualified for the 'early eater' menu'). Served quickly, great customer service. Hope to eat here again one day.

This fine restaurant serves the most delicious Chinese food of an unrivaled quality. It consistently provides the highest quality food that is matched by the friendly and highly competent staff. Long may this wonderful restaurant continue to be run so expertly by Ming - it's owner.

We've visited The Gonbay on several occasions as part of large parties and as a couple. Quality of food is always good. Service is also good. It's not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Very enjoyable meal - we opted for one of the banquet options which was good. Only 4 stars as a little overpriced. We've also been previously with children and it was also good
