We found Abacus through our Hi-Life Diners card and as we were visiting relatives in Bolton we decided to go there. Of course it is free convenient parking on Middlebrook Retail Park (right next to Bolton Wanderers Stadium) and there is loads to do on there, bowling, cinema and shopping. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and the... More

Visited on a Friday evening for the early bird offer after we ordered and our menus had been taken away the manager asked if we would like some prawn crackers so accepted the offer when we finished our food which was okay if it a little bland nobody asked if we would like a coffee which was included in the...

Hi Thank you for your feedback and would like to point out some facts after reading your review. You said that you ordered some prawn crackers from the manager which in fact is not true as it is one of the waitress that took your order. When the bill arrived at your table, you spoke to me and told me... More

Great evening with our family - our son celebrating his birthday plus our young nephew and my son's grandmother. We chose the restaurant as it caters for all ages and tastes. As usual we were not disappointed, great service and food - enjoyed by everyone from the eldest to youngest palettes. My only great was booking the taxi too early... More

Went for the Imperial Banquet. Food was very nice, service was very good and atmosphere fine. No pressure to eat fast, like you'd get in some places, plenty of breaks allowing us to take our time with each dish. (3 hours it took us... Oops!)

Having read the mixed reviews I was a bit apprehensive going to Abacus with colleagues however I was pleasantly surprised so much so that we visited again the following week when up in Horwich for business. The Salt and Pepper squid and prawns were both very good. The Pork in pepper sauce was equally good. Only criticism I thought they... More

This place has been on our doorstep for quite a while now so we finally decided to give it a try. Chinese isn't usually our bag, but the menu looked very promising. The best thing about that is the actual menu in-house is even more varied. I don't know if this restaurant has a lift, but it's accessed via stairs... More

Took advantage of the early bird offer of 2 courses for £10.95. All had the crispy duck pancakes to start (additional supplement), different choices for the main course but all thoroughly enjoyed. My only criticism would be that the meals only come with boiled rice/egg fried rice - noodles/chips are another additional supplement.

Partner has been many times but me never. Friendly and efficient. Went for the £22 banquet. Just enough in each course. Were able to change one of the soups to hot and sour. Starters unusual and tasty. Duck course very moist. Maia not a massive portion but enough not to waste!! Toilets clean and neat. Definitely recommend!!
