At Taste of China, the specialty dishes all revolve around seafood, including Chinese versions of sauteed shrimp, scallops with king oyster mushrooms and lobster fried rice. If this is less to your taste, however, the menu is extensive enough to feature a huge amount of choice and plenty of meat or vegetarian options. All the dishes are made fresh and servings are generous so you can be sure you’ll leave satisfied.

The beginning of House of Gourmet’s menu features an odd range of Western-style dishes such as spaghetti and sandwiches, but you’re best to skip these and head straight for their Cantonese classics. Particularly recommended are the steamed rice rolls and seafood rice dishes although with close to 450 menu items, there should be something to suit everyone. Service is brisk but friendly and the busy atmosphere creates a lively ambiance.
