More information about the organisation that manages this location


The Welcome Chinese Restaurant has been owned and Managed by San and Jasmine Cheung, since November 2005. The restaurant specialises in Cantonese and Malaysian cuisine. It also has Thai and Szechuan dishes as well.

San (Head Chef) and Jasmine (Restaurant Manager) have created an "oasis" of exceptional Cantonese and Oriental Cuisine here in rural Cambridgeshire, which surprises everyone in terms of both its excellent quality and reasonable cost. Since 2005, the Welcome has attracted and maintained a large and regular customer base from around St. Ives and beyond, gaining it a reputation as one of the best Chinese Restaurants in the East of England.

The Welcome Chinese Restaurant is situated in East Street, (which is immediately behind Barclays Bank, Market Hill) in the centre of St. Ives. You will know your there, when you see the Two Marble Lions guarding the entrance and at night the warm and welcoming illuminated red awnings above the windows and entrance.

On entering the restaurant, the attractive and calming fish tank and exquisitely set and elegant tables immediately suggest that this Chinese Restaurant is in a class above the rest. Dark wood chop sticks with marble dragons inset are encased in a neatly designed sleeve (matching the table runner) and placed on a china stool; silk pink table liners, embroidered with gold were laid upon crisp white linen. The quality of the decor is matched by the efficient, courteous and friendly service of all the staff. The restaurant is spacious with a relaxing and sophisticated ambience. Tables of all sizes are available from a cosy romantic table for two, to large round tables for large parties with an occasion to celebrate. It has the capacity to seat up to 100 people.

Overall, the Welcome can be described as an upper class, high quality Chinese Restaurant with delicious quality food and excellent service. It is a family run business where the owner and head chef has 20 years of experience in Cantonese food. The restaurant can cater for parties for any occasion. Party groups should book in advance.

There are a number of public car parks within 2 minutes walk of the Welcome Chinese Restaurant.

Chinese noodles are also another main ingredient to Chinese cuisine. There are many different types of noodle made from different flours and starches, the common ones are made from either Wheat or Rice flour.

Vermicelli is usually made from Rice Flour and are whiter and very thin in comparison to the thicker, creamy coloured Wheat Noodles.
