“Ten of us descended on this well established Chinese restaurant, located in the Cardiff suburb of Llandaff. Suffice to say, all the food was outstanding but for me, one dish was exceptional and that was the lemon chicken. You must try it, it would be sin not to. I could not fault the service, it was quick and done with a smile. If you are in Cardiff and looking for the best Chinese restaurant then The Summer Palace is for you.” – Peter111040

2.  Happy Gathering

MartinG writes: “My wife and I who are Cardiff based have been visiting Chinese restaurants all over the world for over 40 years and a recent visit back we were told by old friends the Happy Gathering was still great we decided to give them a try last Sunday late afternoon. To say the décor hasn’t change for probably 30 years would not be remiss but the service was spot on we ordered dim sum which turned out in our opinion were the best presently available in Cardiff.”

3. Riverside Chinese Restaurant

We also had crispy duck pancakes which were stunning, among the best I have ever had.It was up there with other good Chinese restaurants I have visited in China Towns in London and Manchester. If looking for a good Chinese restaurant in Cardiff, Riverside Cantonese is definitely worth a try.”

4. The Crispy Duck
21 Whitchurch Road, Cardiff CF14 3JN

Ajec88 writes: “Different to other Asian restaurants the Crispy Duck offers a number of small dishes (that can also be starters) on their menu, similar to tapas, and as we love tapas this was our first choice. The menu had a great selection, we choose calamari, satay beef, gyoza, teriyaki chicken and soft shell crab, everything was so tasty, satay sauce was lush! Tempura batter was crispy. Beef was a little chewy but this could have been the cut that we had, would still order again. The gyoza dumpling filling was great and they had been steamed and grilled so had a soft and crispy side.”
