Large, first floor restaurant in shopping area of Canton. Very popular (particularly with Chinese community) but hard to see why. Ambience reminds me of a motorway service area! I strongly advise you to go elsewhere - try the Bozan in Roath.

Good set meal for 4 plus vegetarian options. Service was good. Prices are reasonable. I like the atmosphere - better than Phoenix Garden, not as pretentious as Summer Palace
Very Happy Time At The Happy Gathering

My husband and I had our wedding reception here and could not have been happier. They accomodated our large party easily. The service was excellent and the food was the best we ever had; no one had a negative thing to say about it.
Dim Sum Heaven

Have been coming here for years (20+) and not had a bad meal yet. After all, the local chinese community can't be wrong.Try the Dim Sum menu, avail 4 - 6pm (I think). You can fill up with delicious dishes for £5 - £7 pp. All freshly cooked to order, choose a variety of steamed, crispy and stir fried for the best effect. The menu offers pictures of everything, just in case you haven't tried things before. Decor hasn't changed in 20 years, but who cares if the food is great?
Recommended Dishes: Pork rice noodle, Prawn Sui Mai.

Bad service, Chinese dishes nothing special

I have been to many Chinese restaurants in UK even in China. I have never seen dishes and service as poor as here. The service is bad especially the chinese waiters, the dishes are boring and no suprise. The seafood and meat are not fresh, it's really bad!
