We had a lovely evening at The Welcome . Absolutely Amazing food....!!! Fresh , aromatic flavors etc.. The staff were very officiant as always and Michael very attentive and respectful at all times !( especially towards my Dad as it was his 84thbirthday !😬 Thank you !!
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!.
Can't fault the quality & quantity of the food, but very disappointed at having to wait 45mins for our starter, particularly given we (party of 3) were the first customers in at 5pm. Four other tables who came in after us, were all eating before us. When i asked the waitress why it was taking so long she said it was a computer problem. When i asked the waiter the same question when he brought the food, he said they were very busy with takeaways! It was very obvious that they had simply forgotten us, so i didn't appreciate the 'excuses', neither of which explained why four other tables were eating before us. As i said, food delicious when it eventually arrived, but poor service.
For starter we've ordered the crab, duck, the bone less salt chillie chicken, egg drop chicken soup! It was amazing and good portion for a starter! For Main course we ordered Duck in plump sauce, Oven baked pork belly, salted chilli chicken, sweet and sour pork and beef which i cant remember the name, there was 6 of us and yes the portion are big and delicious! I would reccomend this Restaurant! The restaurant very clean, staff are all friendly!
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 food was really beautiful and very fresh. The staff were so friendly and the restaurant was lovely. I was very impressed. The only bad mark was that I wanted a couple of glasses of white wine but they only sold the small quarter bottles which don't taste the same as a big bottle. But that was only a small thing.
