About The Cathay Rendezvous

The Cathay Rendezvous is a well-established Chinese restaurant on King Street, Bristol’s oldest thoroughfare. Behind the elegant 18th century facade is a series of rooms on two floors. Named after the collection of world-famous Nanking Cango porcelain on display, the main royal blue-coloured dining space is the Nanking Room. The extensive menu broadly covers the main culinary traditions of China - Mandarin, Cantonese and Szechuan - with main courses usually satisfying most taste buds and hunger levels… aromatic crispy duck, soft shell crab, Canton fillet steak flambe. Those who prefer to have their decision made for them, the set menus can be relied on. The Sunday lunch ‘eat as much as you like for £13.95 special is popular.

The attentiveness of the staff was amazing. My wife is Gluten intolerant; which might usually be a challenge in a Chinese Restaurant. However, the staff really wen out of their way to ensure that she was happy with her menu choices. (And the food was amazing too !)

Firstly, We were impressed by the historical building, and the food was amazing. Waiting staff were very friendly, they treat us like friends. A lovely lady told us this is a family run independent restaurant. I think that was why they were so welcoming.
We will definetfly come again and recommend it to our friends.

Myself and my fiancé hadn't been here for a long time. So we decided to see if it was still as great as before. We weren't disappointed. Great food, service was great and the meal was really nice and tasty. You do pay a little more than the larger restaurants, but you do get a better all round package. We won't leave so long next time!

Our first time here with family and friends. Service was fantastic, food amazing, really good portions, hot and very tasty. Our friends arrived just as we were finishing our Starters. They put their order in for Mains - and it all came at the same time.

I only realised after I left that I hadn't left a tip - hence writing this review. I would definitely go back again.

Wide menu, we had Sunday buffet, plenty of choice to be had, you could order as much as you like, as long as you do not waste food. It was cooked to order, we did wait for some items which meant some of our party were eating and some weren't. Very polite staff.

Excellent venue for pre theatre menu. Food good value and nice ambience and service.
Sadly their boiler had broken so was rather cold on this occasion but they had heaters and soon warmed up..but we were one of first guests of the evening too. Still would recommend though and will go again
