Squaremeal Review of Happy Gathering ?

Considered by many to be the best Chinese restaurant in the city, Happy Gathering is a long-standing fixture on the Cardiff dining scene. Regulars (often from as far away as Bristol) pack the place for lunchtime dim sum (expect to queue on Sundays), while the rest of the Cantonese cooking gets an enthusiastic thumbs up, too, especially honey-glazed prawns, steamed fish (the restaurant is known for its fresh seafood), aromatic duck and spare ribs. Price, service and atmosphere tick all the right boxes, too.

Hadn't been to this restaurant in years and we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely – portions are decently generous so would suggest ordering enough to share and in any case even if you order later, the service is really quick (as we found out). It's quite a big restaurant – we went mid-week and it was more than half full, with a good number of Chinese diners too – always a good sign to endorse the authencity of the cuisine. Would recommend.
