We asked you where your favourite place was for a Chinese in Belfast – and we listened.
So, just to tempt you into ordering a takeaway tonight, or dining out (we personally like to slip into something a little more ‘comfortable’ to facilitate our feasting), we’ve counted down our top places for a Chinese in Belfast.
1. The Welcome
22 Stranmillis Rd
Many of you singled out The Welcome, particularly its spectacular restaurant, as the best in Belfast. It has a separate restaurant and takeaway – both of which are extremely popular.
Whilst the restaurant certainly offers an amazing dine-in experience and has a host of mouth-watering specials, the takeaway is truly delicious. Try the Honey Chilli Chicken with cashew nuts.
131A Andersonstown Rd
With its massive menu, competitive prices and absolutely scrumptious food, it’s no wonder Elements is always busy.
Despite the fact your food will be created within minutes thanks to its efficient service, it’s always cooked to utter perfection.
What really sets Elements apart from the rest though is its true value for money meal deals. From a tenner you can genuinely get enough food to feed an army – or, you know, just sit in with your eating partner and make a food baby.
