    Fan Dynasty: Laura Fan's New Generation Chinese

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Laura Fan established this restaurant on the Dunmore Road in Waterford some five years ago. In doing so she was following in the footsteps of her Father Johnny, who has established some of the best Chinese restaurants around!

    About a year or two ago Johnny travelled to Hong Kong and China to source the most authentic Chinese furnishings and artefacts with which to completely redecorate and re-style his daughter's highly successful enterprise. The result was a spectacularly authentic Chinese setting with great food to match.

    Each day they produce a very competitively priced lunch menu, and similarly an early bird menu for the evening. There's a great choice and they are happy to substitute dishes if you are not entirely satisfied with the selection offered.

    They have introduced some new dishes - stuffed chicken wings, yam stuffed duck, or (my favourite) Chinese fillet steak in a red wine and cream sauce. This is divine.

    You will not find fault with the staff, either. Laura herself oversees proceedings on a daily basis and is ably assisted by her Mother, her sister, and an expert Oriental waiting staff. Laura herself is a delightful person, and you will be surprised to discover that she is a beautiful and young lady who models part time and is also a skillful make up artist.

    They are wonderful with children here and put themselves out to entertain your kids while you eat in peace.

    They also cater to parties and indeed have a seperate room where you can comfortably accomodate a large group for a private function.

    There is a full bar, and after dinner you can always venture downstairs to the exciting Uluru bar for a great night out with music provided by a well known local DJ on most nights.

    Favorite Dish: The Chinese fillets teak with red wine and cream sauce - mouth watering.

    Again I have not quoted on price because it is extremely reasonable for a three course lunch from the set menu (about ?13 a head for the lot) but ranges upwards when you choose a la carte with main courses starting at around ?14 each with rice or side dishes extra.
