Always receive top quality service here. The food is excellent and I have no hesitation recommending this restaurant. While it is a little distant from where I live, I do try and get there now and then as it is my favourite Chinese.

My wife, our vegetarian daughter and I went to this restaurant for an evening diner. We had been there before and we were not disappointed. The service was pleasant and efficient. The fish cakes were excellent, as was the squid and the steamed vegetables. Enjoy!

There's more to China Plate than dumplings, but if you like dumplings, don't go past them here - they are hand-made, delicate, tasty, and there's a wide selection to choose from. China Plate offers good value, good variety, and very friendly service. It's not your...More
