Confucius Chinese started as Chichester's most famous Chinese, renowned for its local touch and personal service. Since then, nothing much has changed, the same people still work here and we still use our secret recipes to create classic dishes.Gordon and Yvonne Lee are the owners and you'll probably get to meet them at the restaurant. We're a family run restaurant with a twist in modern British Chinese cuisine. We live in Chichester and know the area very well.

    The whole evening was a pleasure. The meal was excellent from a wide ranging menu and very good value. Table service was slick and efficient despite take-aways and deliveries being part of the service.

    This restaurant is tucked away on a side street in Chichester but is a real find. The staff are always friendly and the food is great. I have dined here four times now and have always had a really good meal.

    Not a very good experience and would certainly not dine in this restaurant again. Parking is a major problem. As a family of five with children we were seated right next to the main entrance near the bar. Lots of people coming in to pick up take-aways and order food but standing and sitting near us just staring at us as we were trying to eat. We only saw the staff occasionally when they took our order and brought our drinks and food. They were too busy arguing amongst themselves over orders. They never once asked us how were were or if we would like another drink. The food was very poor. I had the Pork Chow-Mein and I could swear it was Super Noodles with a few bean sprouts chucked in with pieces of pork. The rest of the food was no better. The only nice part of the food was the spring rolls for starter, they were really good. I eat a lot of Chinese food and go to a lot of Chinese restaurants and this is the poorest I have ever been to. Maybe the locals know no different and enjoy it, but I certainly will not visit again as I like good authentic proper chinese food. Sorry Confucius, a very poor dining experience for my family and I on a not too busy Tuesday evening.

    Another excellent meal, though I was disappointed at some changes in the menu. Everybody seems to want to make things hotter and at my age I don't like chillies etc.

    This was a return visit after a lovely meal 2 days before. And it was equally lovely. Good food, friendly staff, efficient service and good value for money. Will be back when we have another trip to Chichester. Thanks to all the family who run the restaurant and hope you do well till we see you again.

    Our first visit to this lovely Chichester city centre restaurant. We were made very welcome by all the staff. Due to various food intolerances with one of our party we sought help on much of the menu which was freely and knowledgably given meaning a flexible approach to a set menu. The food was of a high standard and very acceptable but not quite upto our usual London China Town taste. We will return when in the city again.

    Sorry to say, this restaurant felt more like a café. No atmosphere and the staff seem to be running through the restaurant all the time, which may have had something to do with all the takeaway meals they were processing along with the guy that was delivering them. Such a shame as it used to be a comfortable, relaxing place once.
