Been here on more than one occasion never had a bad meal, the food is freshly prepared, the staff are very friendly and nothing is any trouble, our valentines meal was excellent value and not overpriced for the occasion definitely we will be dining again. Excellent service.

A bonus of deciding to sample Rainbow 88's sunday buffet was that they were having Chinese New Year celebrations and the owner 'Linda', a really lovely and personable lady had pressed two of her male staff into performing a "Lion Dance". The guys did really well, but I was also impressed at the way Linda presented it - her personality... More

We haven't been to Rainbow over Christmas as we prefer to stay in and away from the hustle and bustle of parties. Lui-Na was as wonderful as ever, always kind and polite, she really is a great asset. We tried some different dishes as there in a new Chef and we wern't dissappointed. It was freshly cooked, hot and delicious.... More

Almost Chinese New Year – this review is for last year I fancied trying a Chinese New year meal out, so we joined forces with some friends and went to Rainbow 88 It was rammed! And the place was absolutely buzzing with a real party feel about it. Got a drink at the bar and was quickly shown to the... More

Visited for a Christmas party with friends. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to help. The food was quite average and the portions for the banquet were quite small for the number of people it had to cover. I also felt it was quite expensive for what you got.

Fabulous 50th birthday meal with my family (11 of us). I visit here regularly & I didn't hesitate to book this special event here. My family were SO impressed with the food and service. Thank you Linda and all of team Rainbow.

The Rainbow 88 is a Chinese restaurant in Cheadle Hulme precinct and the owner, Linda Lam, has the biggest heart. She puts on fund-raising nights for a lot of local charities and the one my friend and I went to last Thursday was terrific. It started off with entertainment in the form of a few songs from the Wizard of... More
