Love this place, consistently good service and wonderful fresh food. I’m reluctantly knocking off one star because the food always seems to come out on cold dishes. Please rectify this Mayflower, the food deserves a hot plate!

Quite simply the best Chinese in Bristol. It's the best I've ever been to in the U.K. Authentic dishes, fun atmosphere, friendly, helpful, enthusiastic staff. The Szechuan dishes, and the squid dishes are particularly tasty. Really is a must visit.

Visited whilst staying nearby after checking many reviews. Firstly - be prepared to walk past homeless souls settling in for the night beneath a major traffic roundabout and the associated problems. Secondly, beware pictures on website - all tables covered with faux leather cloth with paper square laid over on diagonal - classy. Opted for​ set meal for 2 -... More

Sunday evening, quiet restaurant. Confusion over seating then the service went down from there. Not asked if we wanted drinks and it was 20 minutes before food order was taken. Drinks took another 10 minutes to arrive but later arrivals were already eating. Food was very good and portions were more than enough. Will try it again to give it... More

Praise where it's due, the food is good. Not the overly salty, MSG drenched Chinese you find at your local take out, but tasty fresh food that's been well made. It's a shame that this is let down by the poor service. Unapologetic staff, providing slow and rude service bringing out dishes randomly to our table leaving some of our... More

As I was staying nearby I decided to use the reliable Mayflower restaurant for a takeaway. I have used this restaurant before both eat in and as takeaway and the quality of food is always good. On a limited budget I do find eating in a little expensive for my budget however the takeaway never fails to impress. Special noodles... More
