While the service was good and the waiters very professional, the food itself left a lot to be desired. Expected much better, particularly for the price. Of the 5 main dishes we ordered, only 1 was deemed satisfactory by our table of 5.

The venue is quite remarkable once inside as you wouldn’t expect it to look that way from the street. The staff are lovely and friendly and the service is very professional. Unfortunately the food is average at best. The soft shell crab was drenched in oil and the batter was too thick. It tastes like a deep fried fish from a chippy in over used oil. The duck was average. As was the pagoda style chicken. The cubed beef was nice and tender and enjoyable but overall very disappointing considering it’s a family run business that’s been around for years. For what we had extremely overpriced. We’ve had far more tasty and affordable experiences in Chinatown.

Food was really good and tasty but experience let down by overall poor service. Waiter had really bad attitude and just acted like taking an order was beneath him. The waiter that served the food was marginally better but once our main course food was cleared, we were left to sit for nearly an hour without dessert menu arriving, checking if we needed more drinks or the bill. Pretty rubbish really - can see why it was half empty on a saturday night. Such a shame.

Me and my wife Chose to eat here New Year’s Eve so we were not to far from Manchester town hall for the fireworks. Not easy to find, as we ended up asking a few times until one of the door men showed us where to go. Down stairs was a very busy bar/club but upstairs where the restaurant was, was a lot quieter , even with the music in the background.
The variety of food on offer was great and seemed to cater for all different tastes. While we did not chose one of the banquet meals, the other choices did not disappoint and we had more than enough to eat and the quality and service were spot on.
The price was a bit more than what we would nornmally pay, but for a special occasion or just wanting something different it was worth the money.

The location is hard to find. Very embarrassed to go in or walk out through the crowd on the ground floor (pub downstairs, restaurant upstairs). The menu is changed and one of our favorite hotpot disappeared. Not a very good experience.

Food was delicious and good size portions. Cocktails were really nice too. Would defo recommend for a date or a huge party as they have sharing menu and they are very facilitating. Explained we couldn't eat beef so could we change the set menu for 2 and they happily changed it to whatever we wanted. Staff are very helpful and nice :)

235 Ocean Treasure is somewhere I bring visiting friends / family for special occasions.
I like to try at least one new dish every time I go.
My favourite dish by far is the spare ribs in Peking sauce appetiser, it's something I order every time I go, and the portion size is quite big (which I love).
Service was great as always, a little slower on the latest visit on a Saturday afternoon.

The food was good, and the atmosphere was lively too with the casino in the background. It was not too bright or dark either. The only thing which surprised me was that there were 2 menus, one in Chinese and one in English, which offered different food, each to match the taste buds of those ordering. Some of the food was a bit more expensive than I had expected, but overall it was a really good dinner and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to a friend.

I booked the table for my wife and I to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary; I was looking for a quality restaurant that had a good choice of seafood. The website was comprehensive and easy to use; it seemed to offer exactly what I was looking for. The ambience was relaxing, the tables had an opaque fabric curtain that provided some privacy but without feeling that you were isolated. The service was most helpful, and attentive; the food was served fresh and hot with hot hand towels provided after each course. The menu choice was extensive and the food was extremely good in terms of quality and value. Interesting to see that a lot of customers were Chinese which speaks volumes for the food quality and authenticity. Highly recommended.

As ever, the staff were so accommodating to ensure that, in spite of a late arrival, we ordered, relaxed and ate the very good meal and were out in plenty of time to attend our concert in the Bridgewater Hall. Not the first time traffic into Manchester had delayed us but nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Never disappointed!
