Was a little dubious after reading some of the poor reviews on TA, but shouldn't have worried. The food and the service were both good - the new location freshly decorated. The Special Fried Rice was packed with goodies and very tasty. Will be going...More

We visited on a busy Saturday night. The food was amazing, we ordered from one of the set menus and thoroughly enjoyed each dish, with a special mention for the lemon chicken. Lovely staff, very efficient too. We’ll definitely be back.

As quite a foodie myself, plus being Chinese, Riverside Restaurant is THE restaurant I would go to whenever I go for Chinese. Apparently I'm not alone on this... I've been living in Cardiff for over 10 years. I did miss it when I wasn't in...More

They have moved. A notice on the door says they are 650 meters away but doesn't say in which direction! Useless.
