  • "When we reached the restaurant we were taken straight to our table. The decor is really nice and looks elegant. The staff is friendly, smiley and helpful. Even for a Tuesday night (9:30) it was nearly full, so booking a table is recommended. The menu is quite big so takes a while to go through but when the food comes, it's well worth it. The prices were not high at all. The restaurant is very nice and clean, from outside as well as in. You can park in the side streets around the restaurant for free after 6pm. When we finished our food, we were given hot towels with a side of sliced oranges which was a nice touch. Me & my wife highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Fantastic food. Pleasant atmosphere. Friendly attentive staff. The owner made the dining experience even more pleasurable. Made our family of four feel really welcome. Took an interest in my 2 children and US. The food was extremely delicious. Exceeded our expectations. We look forward to going again. Going to book in for my Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary in August. The Sunday Family menu was an absolute treat. Thank you so much."

  • "The food is excellent, service is also very good and all staff are very friendly. The early evening menu is excellent value for money, they don't advertise what time the offer ends though, but at 6pm we were able to order from it, 4 courses and a free drink per person. The restaurant doesn't have any soft furnishings to help soak up sound, so it is very noisy with chatter from other customers. On a saturday night its extremely difficult to hear the person sat next to you. Mid week this isn't a problem as they space customers out around the restaurant. Overall its a very nice cantonese restaurant and we will certainly be going back as the food and service are very good."

  • "We went to Pacifica Cantonese after helping our daughter move into a new flat so we were knackered when we arrived. However the lively atmosphere and some excellent wines (pink Prosecco & Pinot Noir) soon helped to liven us up! The food is better than the normal chinese fare with some different options on the menu. The service was exceptional; the guy in charge was very chatty and efficient. The restaurant was fully booked (Saturday night) and is particularly recommended for a group night out."

  • "Been to pacifica many times and this time was for a Birthday meal and didn't disappoint. Going at 6pm on a Tuesday evening we were the only diners in the restaurant until 6.30pm, My only criticism was that our waiter never pointed out some early evening specials that they were doing and we only found out when we overheard the 6.30pm table ordering. However, that did not detract from the outstanding food and would not stop me recommending this restaurant."

  • "We dined on a Thursday evening and it was fairly busy for 7:30pm. Menu has your standard Chinese fayre on it and also a couple leftfield dishes. Service was attentive and friendly and the food was well presented. All in all nothing was outstanding but it was very good and what you expect for the price. Will certainly be going back."

  • "This is a nice place, with good food. The staff are friendley and attentive, but not pushy. There is a nice, relaxed. atmosphere, or would have been. Our vist was somewhat spoiled by a group on another table who vitually shouted across the table at each other, making everyone around talk louder, so that it came to feel like eating on Piccadilly Station. But otherwise it was all fine."

  • "This is the 3rd or 4th occasion that we have visited Pacifica and the food has always been fantastic. We actually had a table booked for 6pm due to the fact we had our 11yr old son with us and I was surprised at how busy the place was at this time. I have probably mentioned this before but the modern decor, wooden floors and low ceilings do not lend themselves to a "Quiet" environment as everything echos so once you have a few tables chatting away it is quite a vibrant (some would say noisy) atmosphere. This is not a cheap place to eat but that is not a criticism as the food is quality and I truly believe that you pay for what you get. I have marked the service as fair as it was a little slow but again this was balanced out by the food."

  • "Once you find the place it is very nice. I went on Valentines night and the service and food was good. Though there was a set menu, they catered for my partner who is lactose intolerant and vegetarian. All in all, a very nice experience. The service could have been a bit better as there only appeared to be 2/3 servers on the night...but then in a small restaurant maybe that is not surprising."

  • "I haven't ticked any of the above because none of them apply to the Pacifica Cantonese.The restaurant is wonderful. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food excellant. Even on a "Crazy" night like last Saturday the staff managed to keep their cool in a very pressurised atmosphere. The manager runs a very good restaurant and is always on hand to help when necessary. All of the staff have a smile for the customers but the chefs must also take credit because the food is excellent."

  • "When we arrived there was a large group celebrating a birthday. There were children running about and the group were very noisy and quite intimidating. This really was wrong place at the wrong time and you could sense that the staff were not very comfortable with the impact this was having on other diners. In fairness, no restaurant is going to turn down a reservation for possibly 40 people and you have no way of knowing what to expect until they actually arrive. We asked to be moved to a table further away and this was done immediately and seemlessly. When we left the restaurant the manager discreetly apologised. Other than that the food was superb and the service, ambiance (we have been several times before)and decor cannot be faulted)"
