I went quite late on a weekday and wanted some variety without maxing out my credit card in an a la carte restaurant. I'd spotted China China by chance as it's not on the main food strip in the area. They offer a takeaway option...More

We come here regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the extra service provided by Tata at the Teppanyaki is brilliant. She makes a fantastic spicy chicken to order, the best in Belfast. All the staff are so friendly. Well...More
