WE may be under local lockdown but Boltonians can still tuck into their favourite takeaway dishes this weekend.

Bolton is home to some top-rated Chinese restaurants- and some of them have sterling reviews.

The China Room and Sanshan are just two takeaways on the list- but where do they rank?

Here are five top-rated Chinese restaurants on Tripadvisor, which are available for takeaway and delivery. 

The China Room, Westhoughton- ‘We wouldn’t go anywhere else’


This is the top-rated Chinese restaurant on Tripadvisor and it has a 4.5 rating.

The restaurant has only received one ‘terrible’ rating on the site and 17 ‘excellent’.

One person praised the “excellent restaurant” and “wonderful staff”.

A happy customer wrote: “We [always] get our takeaways from here- we wouldn’t go anywhere else for Chinese”.

If you’re in the mood for steak, then this is the place to be as they have a whole section dedicated to fillet steak dishes which are all cooked with an oriental twist.

Best of all, they currently have an offer on where diners get 20% off the dine in menu when they collect their takeaway at the restaurant.

You can find their take away menu online.

Bambu crispy chicken fried rice and braised steak noodle bowls are just some tasty-looking dishes to appear on their menu.

Trip advisor users have high praise for the restaurant which has received zero ‘terrible’ ratings and over 60 ‘excellent’ reviews.

If you ever visit Bambu, you need to try the noodle soups as Trip advisor users rave about them.

One person wrote: “The noodle soups are fantastic.

This might be the last on our list- but Sanshan is a restaurant worth trying.
