We like Chinese food for its unique taste. But every dish which we tried at Big China was tasteless. It's a pity. Three different soups disappointed us: vonton, with duck breast and noodle soup with duck. Second course meal - Chinese duck was dry. Riсe was good enough. Green tea was rather tasty (due to this fact, I put 3,... More

The menu in Big China is extensive and has lots to offer, and the food is very nice and well made. As is often the case with asian restaurants, the fizzy drinks like coke were flat, but that's to be expected when you go to a Chinese. The staff were quite unhelpful, they were just standing around talking to each... More

We visited Big China for lunch based on the good reviews here. Service was friendly but the food was not good. Steamed pork buns were dry and lacking filling. Cantonese beef was chunks of sinewy meat on an enormous pile of broccoli and not much else. Crispy sweet and sour chicken was crumbed chicken tenders on a tomato and cucumber... More

Although it may look a little naff on the outside, the food is very authentic. My food was good and my girlfriends steamed Pork was excellent.

Excellent food, very fresh. Atmosphere like any other Chinese restaurants, but food is as good as London China town. Much better than any of THE alternatives in THE area. Especially great Fried Rice and sizzling cantonese beef.
