A Great Chinese Restaurant in Bath - Hon Fusion

Updated on January 27, 2013

Why we went to Hon Fusion in Bath

I don't live in Bath nor have I visit Bath properly before, but my best friend has just moved there so I went up to spend an evening with her and she took me to this delightful little chinese restaurant, Hon Fusion. It is situated just a short walk from the train station and city centre, so is easy to find and very convenient.

I went there purely on her recommendation as her and her partner had been before. I love a good chinese - British chinese or traditional chinese, so I usually have high expectations of a good chinese and can be a little fussy if it just seems like a cheapy take away instead of a good restaurant meal. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised by this tiny little restaurant, although it was very much British Chinese and not traditional chinese I still really enjoyed the food. So much so that we actually returned a few months after when all 4 of us went out together for dinner.

This is my review of the restaurant, the food, the decor and the staff of Hon Fusion in Bath

Apperance and Decor

It is a pretty small little place, with just one large window and door at the front, plus their sign - so not a lot to say about the exterior apperance really. It was nice and bright and clean looking, meaning it was pretty inviting really, but nothing special.

We went on a Thursday evening around 7pm and it was very quite there, only 2 other tables were being used. It is a very small place but very nice, with only around 12 tables. We were seated right in the window (our choice) on a nice clean table and very comfy chairs. The decor is pretty basic with tables down one side and to the back, and a small bar area on the right. There wasn't alot of chinese tat around which you often see in chinese restaurants, this was just simple and clean. I rather it like this to be honest, not too cluttered and it seems a little fake with too much 'traditional' iconograohy. Anyway...my only worrying point was actually how quiet it was, but I suppose I was comparing it to Cardiff City restaurants which are always busy. What was nice was that the 2 other tables were both full of oriental people, this is usually a good sign that the food is good quality, that whole 'if the local's go there' idea I suppose.

The Staff

I can't say I really have a huge amount to say about the staff. The waitress' were both very attentive and polite, although they could be dresses a little better, as their black tops and trousers were a little scruffy looking. But they brought drinks, a jug of water and prawn cracker to our table quickly. The food was brought out in good time, but I would expect that when a restaurant is quiet and we had almost no wait between our course.

The Food at Hon Fusion

The menu is typical of what you would expect in a british chinese restaurant. We ordered the hot platter for 2 as a starter, then lemon chicken, szechuan prawns and one bowl of sticky boiled rice.

The platter was lovely: 2 small spring rolls, 2 prawn toast, 2 ribs, 2 Chicken Satay skewers, 2 prawn wantons and a little bowl of crispy seaweed, plus a sweet chilly dip. It was all very tasty and hot - but its also very similar to that of my local take away but more expensive at £12.

The rice and mains were brought a few minutes after the starter was cleared and again were hot and very tasty, plus the portion sizes are quite good, I was pretty full afterwards. They range in price between £6.50 and £9 for mains

It worked out as £21 each with 2 rounds of drinks so not too bad, although not cheap either! My only issue is that it was very much typical British Chinese and very little real traditional Chinese - but I suppose that is what most people look for in British Chinese restaurants.

The Daisy Rating

Well I gave it a 4 star,f or what it is, a British Chinese Restaurant. The food was all very well cooked and tasty. The restaurant itself was nice, the staff were good. It is nothing mega special, but if you take it for what it is, a small independant (probably family run) British Chinese then it is very good. I would and have visited again.

How would I rate Hon Fusion in Bath

      It's really good food, but like you said looks like nothing from the outside

      I will remember this for when I go to Bath next time. Sometimes the places that look like nothing on the outside actually has the nicest food. Thanks for introducing me to Hon Fusion.
