Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice inside, staff are great, massively overpriced for mediocre food. It’s a 5,6/10 at best. Haven’t tried any other restaurants near by for Chinese food as this was meant to be the best. If i’m forced to go a second time I’d hope it was...better.More

This is our third time to eat in this restaurant in the last month. I absolutely love it. The restaurant is beautiful, the food is delicious and the staff are so professional and helpful. Kate is a little diamond there. Helpful with advice on sauces....We will go for the buffet one Thursday to try different foods. Lovely experienceMore

Excellent service, beautiful, tasty food freshly prepared. I have dumplings and steamed cod, both were delicious, light and so flavoursome. I always book through Kate. She is a great host and I always find the staff to be friendly and helpful.

Had house beef curry here last nite. Every piece of beef was tough and boiled rice stuck together. Not good. Would not return.

The Spice bag was terrible, not one piece of chicken. The chicken satay tasted like watery fish, used to be a good takeaway, very poor now

Food was standard Chinese fare, nothing amazing but tasty. Amy was our waitress and she was charming and attentive. Pleasent decor and plenty of space between the tables.

The chips were all shrivelled up and brown. Very disappointed with this. I got brown chips 3 Saturdays in a row and still received brown chips after multiple complaints. Black greasy chips. Looked as if they were reheated many times

Although we eat and order from Ngais relatively regularly I must commend all staff for the excellent service and quality that they consistently provide. As a family we ate in the restaurant twice recently on two very busy nights Christmas Eve and New Years Eve....Despite how busy the place was waiting staff were extremely efficient and the food was perfect. The staff were friendly as always we would have absolutely no complaints about their excellent service.More

Family dinner on a Sunday evening in August. We ate from a set menu which had plenty of options at a very reasonable price. Food was very tasty and staff were very friendly. Will definitely be back again

Brought our two sons to Ngai's as a treat and they both loved it. The food tasted nice, it was busy but the service was good, had to wait a long time for the bill but no real complaints. The price of the food was...average.More
