    by catherineneill Written Jan 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    one of the best if not slightly overrated chineses in belfast. attracts a few local celebraties and well to do families, it was our favourite haunt for a saturday night get together with the girls. we still go every now and again, and we get a lot of freebies now because we've bought so much.

    Favorite Dish: you must try the honey chilli chicken and casew nuts. its to die for. also, any duck dish is a good choice.

    Tedfords: Nautical scran

    by clivedinburgh Updated Dec 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent restaurant in a great setting, the restaurant is a former ships chandler and retains a nautical theme with coastal charts as wall paper, portholes and plenty of brasswork.

    Dined here several times and have often recommended it to friends visiting Belfast. Was always a treat to dine out here.

    Friendly & helpfull staff but book to avoid disapointment as can be very busy (even for lunch).

    Favorite Dish: The salmon was always good and the puddings are difficult to avoid.

    The Dirty Duck: Holywood without the tinse(l)

    by clivedinburgh Updated Nov 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is probably best termed a gastropub but I'm sure the owner Nelson would hate the term.

    Set on the shore in Holywood it is well worth the journey with many a fine dish. Bookings are recommended on weekends for the upstairs but food is served downstairs wherever you can find a space.

    Also recommended by CAMRA for it's beer.

    Favorite Dish: Sweet Chilli Chicken Salad is always excellent as is the terriaki chicken.

    Best place in Belfast
    2 more images

    The restaurant is a converted warehouse in the cathedral quarter. There is a small bar area at the entrance and the main dining room is seperated from the kitchen by a glass wall so you can see your meals taking shape.

    I dined here on several occasions and cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Favorite Dish: All ingredients are sourced locally where possible and the menu changes regularly.

    Great dining everytime so difficult to pickout a favourite.

    The Khyber: Indian

    by Catspjm Updated Oct 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dont be mislead by the fact this place sits on top of a petrol station.

    Typical dodgy Indian restaurant decor and music (no offence indented to anyone who may take offence at such things), but superb food cooked by a bloke who lives in our Mews.
    I defy you to find better this side of India.

    Favorite Dish: Call me a large tart, but their Chicken Tikka Korma is to die for.
    Try their Tandori mix for starters, washed down with a Tiger beer.

    Chinese

    by Catspjm Written Oct 17, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    That’s a hard one. We have three superb Chinese restaurants with in about 500m’s of each other.
    The Sun Kee was the original and on a good night still the best

    The original chef and manager from the Sun Kee left and started a restaurant called Macu, which is the one to go for if you like superb fish.

    For a good all rounder, even though it can be a little mass market, the Red Panda is hard to beat.

    You will need to book the first two well in advance, as they are both quite small and in very high demand.

    If I had to choose one, all I will say is the Sun Kee is where the majority of wealthy Chinese people in Belfast would eat. I shall say no more…

    On a good night you will get the best food and always the best service in Belfast in this restaurant.
    The staff is extremely knowledgeable about both the food and wine and always manages a perfect balance between friendliness and utter professionalism.

    Favorite Dish: If its on try the Venison (I can hear the hisses and boos coming from some camps already) if not take pot luck with confidence and enjoy

    Scalini: Italian

    by Catspjm Written Oct 17, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Owned by a genuine Sicilian and sister restaurant to the long standing but recently refurbished Villa Italia, Scallini serves the best pizza in Belfast. The menu is wide and will cater for all tastes from Steak and chips to fine pasta dishes.
    The decor is flamboyantly Italian and worth a visit alone.

    Favorite Dish: For me the starter would be the Rigatoni Scalini (pasta in a tomato, cream and brandy sauce with bacon. They will do a starter portion of any of the pasta dishes if you ask) and a Picante pizza for main course. Those with elasticated waistlines, should order the Fudge nut sundae. Ask them nicely and they will make it with honeycomb ice cream instead of vanilla (tell them I sent you!). Sooo much nicer

    All tastes catered for

    by Catspjm Written Oct 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant and eating out scene in Belfast has changed beyond belief over the last ten years. All tastes and price ranges are catered for in all areas of the city. For me the highlights would be as follows:
    Italian: Scalini
    European: Shu
    American: Bourbon
    Cajun: Pap Joes (In Bangor, a town approx 12 miles from Belfast)
    Vegetarian; Get a life…
    Chinese: Sun kee or Macu
    Indian: The Khyber

    I’ll add and write a tip about each later. I promise!

    Chicken Noodle

    Tables were placed in widely open space.
    Nice jazz BGM, and good selection of beer and wine.

    Favorite Dish: I had Chicken strips with Thai flavored noodle (6.95).
    It was spicy and good.
