Went for the Imperial Banquet. Food was very nice, service was very good and atmosphere fine. No pressure to eat fast, like you'd get in some places, plenty of breaks allowing us to take our time with each dish. (3 hours it took us... Oops!)

Having read the mixed reviews I was a bit apprehensive going to Abacus with colleagues however I was pleasantly surprised so much so that we visited again the following week when up in Horwich for business. The Salt and Pepper squid and prawns were both very good. The Pork in pepper sauce was equally good. Only criticism I thought they... More

This place has been on our doorstep for quite a while now so we finally decided to give it a try. Chinese isn't usually our bag, but the menu looked very promising. The best thing about that is the actual menu in-house is even more varied. I don't know if this restaurant has a lift, but it's accessed via stairs... More

Took advantage of the early bird offer of 2 courses for £10.95. All had the crispy duck pancakes to start (additional supplement), different choices for the main course but all thoroughly enjoyed. My only criticism would be that the meals only come with boiled rice/egg fried rice - noodles/chips are another additional supplement.

Partner has been many times but me never. Friendly and efficient. Went for the £22 banquet. Just enough in each course. Were able to change one of the soups to hot and sour. Starters unusual and tasty. Duck course very moist. Maia not a massive portion but enough not to waste!! Toilets clean and neat. Definitely recommend!!

We visited on 5th September, I had duck starter and Singapore vermicelli. Partner had soup then scallops with broccoli and oyster sauce. We LOVED it, having been in hospitality for 20 years I'm fussy, this was my second visit, and definitely won't be our last. The service and hospitality is second to none. Thank you X
