Located in the centre of Warrington (2 Springfield St, Warrington, WA1 1BB) just a short walk from the Parr Hall and Pyramid theatres is an outstanding restaurant that with its amazing layout has you (on climbing the dozen stairs at the entrance) transported immediately to the Orient. Mr Lau’s offers an extensive menu of classic and gourmet dim sums, Peking ‘A la carte ‘specialities, ‘swinging skewers’ soups, ribs n wings, noodles and pot rice dishes.
The starters to share came in wonderful reed bowls and were enough to feed a family of four. The drinks menu was extensive and the food absolutely superb. The meals are made in front of the customers who can see how the talented chefs make it look so simple whist cultivating their plates of unsurpassable high-quality excellence. This shows the freshness of the ingredients and the authentic methods of the food being prepared.
The staff were very attentive yet approachable, their timing was perfect and the presentation of the dishes incredible. We were with guests who asked for meals not on the menu and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff. I had a dim sum platter to share as a starter and then an amazing seafood dish with noodles followed by an awesome white chocolate cheesecake washed down with a crisp white wine and it was all excellent. People on the table with me all remarked how exceptional the food was and how reasonable priced. There were offers such as ‘the ladies brunch club’ (Prosecco, soup and any 3 dim sum meals for £19.95) that I can foresee me and a few girl friends will be trailing in the very near future! The restaurant owner Pamela Lau should be very proud of this marvellous restaurant and of the remarkable talents of her chefs and service team – they made this occasion very special.
As a lover of gourmet food, I am so glad I have found Mr Lau’s. the meals and service are outstanding and for anyone who loves an evening of authentic high-quality food and service this restaurant is a must. Experience Mr Lau’s for yourself – you will be very glad you did!
Fantastic food and service!
