I went for a birthday meal with my family as a special occasion and enjoyed the food but the room of the temperature was really cold. On a Sunday evening, there was only one other family in the restaurant who were wearing coats as there was no heating at all. Other than that the evening was good, can't fault the... More

We went with friends for a meal to celebrate Chinese New Year (year of the rooster) and Simply Chinese absolutely excelled. The restaurant was trimmed festively, the waitresses in their traditional costumes looked beautiful and the Lion dance was just wonderful. The costume was extraordinary and intricate and the men inside went around the restaurant many times engaging with the... More

We have stopped using this Chinese. It used to be our favourite, then the owners changed & it's not as good now, tried a couple of times & given up now.

Greeted with a smile, lovely meal and a glass of House Red each (large one)! Fair price and I'd come again. Our last visit was a good 2yrs ago and the meal seemed average, but things for us were a lot nicer tonight. This restaurant don't do Delivery but do offer meals for collection.

This was my first visit to Simply Chinese, and I can honestly say that it probably is one of the best in Dronfield. The place is clean, the food is reasonably priced, and portion sizes are perfect, and more importantly the service is excellent. But, I wouldn't have said it was family friendly, more for families with teenagers, adults and... More

Consistently excellent food, service and drinks. Takeaways are similarly good. A real asset to the town. Jilin pork and salt and pepper prawns recommended.

Enjoyed a really good meal last night, it was quiet for a Friday but I think it was because people are still on hols. They said it was usually busier. It was relaxed and the service was very efficient by friendly waitresses. The only downside was that the place is looking as if it needs a bit of TLC. I... More
