Went for my Dad's birthday. The service was fantastic, friendly and quick. The food was delicious and arrived promptly. When the manager learned it was my dad's birthday, he brought him some deep fried ice-cream with a candle in it, for free! Was just a lovely experience and we will most certainly be back.

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.
