I have just spent £5:10p on a tub of tasteless rice with 6 prawns in it and minuscule shavings of something pink, might have been ham? I ordered at the counter and by the time I had walked to the bench and sat down (about 10 feet) my meal was ready. I doubt the Yang Chow ever saw a Wok,... More

Cancelled order with no reason. Left me at 12pm with takeaway closed so couldn't even phone to ask why. Terrible service. I would recommend under NO CIRCUMSTANCES!!! eating here.

They got my order wrong; despite me clarifying it on the phone twice. They didn't give a timescale or advise of any delays so when it didn't arrive timely I phoned them and they said they had been busy and that it was on its way. I had to phone again and threaten to cancel the order. It finally arrived... More

I've been getting Chinese take aways from SWS for years and it never disappoints! Their bbq spare ribs are blinking marvellous. I think their prices are really good value for money and whether you're collecting yourself or you opt for delivery the food is always fresh and piping hot. Defo worth a try!

I have been using SWS for a number of years now and generally it's been ok. It used to be pretty good but over the last 5 years the standard of food has been a little hit and miss, but the service is really quick so if you're in a hurry there is no one quicker. This evening they surpassed... More
