The Welcome has consistently maintained the quality of food and service. Michael, now the next generation of the Welcome team helps to maintain this reputation. The restaurant remains one of the best Chinese in the North of Ireland. No hesitation in recommending!.

We had an excellent meal here last Saturday. There were 7 of us and we were given a circular table, which is always good. The staff were very attentive and keen to explain the menu options on offer. The food was excellent and I would happily recommend this restaurant.

A lovely meal, great ambience, very pleasant staff. Only one thing we thought the wine was a tad expensive £20 for a bottle of Matuas Rose, But a very pleasant evening. Thank you. Phyllis.

A very pleasant meal with attentive and friendly staff. Soup and main courses were fresh and tasty but felt the duck for the pancake starter was slightly over cooked and dry. Would happily return.

Pleasant staff, food was good and no waiting between courses. The menu was varied and not overly expensive. Wine list was not extensive but was satisfactory. I will go back again.

The food was quite nice, but not as nice as I expected after looking at reviews on Tripadvisor. The service was excellent - attentive, quick and friendly.

Ok. No big deal and below expectations. We were told it would be exceptional but it turned out to be just another Chinese restaurants. No reason to return.
