Great, chinese food at reasonable prices and lovely, quick service - placed my order inside and went to sit out on a bench in the park across the street. Rather than wait for me to come back, the owner walked my food out to me. Awesome!

Food had no flavor and everything tasted the same. Barely any chicken in the dishes - mostly sauce which again had no value. Really disappointed.

We got a takeaway yesterday. Ordered some crispy aromatic duck and all we got was .....crispy oily duck skin !! Out of the half duck portion that we had ordered there was probably a couple of spoon full of actual duck the rest was SKIN !! The fried rice and the noodles were average as well.

I had hot and sour soup with real Chinese fungus, not mushrooms like you get in the US. It was great! I also had the veg. spring rolls which were also very good. My only complaint is that they don't take credit cards and we had difficulty with the cash machine near the restaurant.

We ordered curry and chips. It was the curry? Chili, onions and peas! Awful. All landed in the bin. Greasy fries and fried in old oil. The children did not want to eat that. Stay away from that thing.

We stayed in the area for 4 days and one night opted to get a takeaway. You'll notice more recent reviews paint a much more positive picture for this takeaway. Service was quick and the food all good quality. Reasonable prices. Would certainly re-visit if in the area.

Used to be a regular user of this takeaway. Now on the last few occasions , the food had what I can only describe as been reheated. On the final occasion we returned the takeaway where the young member of staff was extremely rude. We Will not be returning .

We had a nice takeaway from here while staying in Ballater. Portions sizes meant we had enough to eat for lunch the next day as well! Not cheap but not too expensive, it was prepared very quickly on a busy evening.
