Great quality for the price of a lunch at £8.99. Staff are very friendly and obliging. On Wednesday the restaurant was very busy. Pity the stairway entrance is so neglected.

Excellent lunch, excellent service and excellent value. Will definitely visit here again and recommend to others. We sampled a range of the lunch menu between 4 of us and everything was delicious.

Had been meaning to try Rendezvous for ages and finally got round to it, so glad we did. The food was really lovely. According to some previous reviews the service wasn't up to much but I disagree, the two servers were very pleasant and efficient even when it got really busy. Will definitely eat here again especially with the lunch menu being so good value for money and I have already recommended to friends and family!

I have been a few times to the Rendezvous Chinese Restaurant and cannot fault the excellent service and food. The staff take your order quickly and efficiently and the food is served very quickly and is always piping hot. The menu is extensive and very tasty. Would recommend (and have done) to friends and family and continue to go there as it is one of my favourites.

I have been to the Rendezvous many times over the past 35 yrs I never need to look a the Menu as i know what my choice will be I was so disappointed that the recipe for the Crispy Shredded chili beef has been changed since i was last there The beef was much thicker and the coating on the beef was different and It now seems it is the same as all other chinese restuarants so I will not be ordering it again

I Gave the score card a 4 out of six but the food was definitely a 5+. The 4 was due to the service. It took 25 minutes before we were given a drinks menu which I had to get up from the table to get. The food took a long time and the main arrived in drips and drabs but once arrived, it was was delicious. The waiting staff were absolutely loveley but just not coordinated.. Maybe the kitchen was understaffed last night but if it was, they should have warned us and we would have adapted and understood. The bill was supprisingly good value and I left the waiting staff £20 tip.
