My wife and I went out for an evening meal and decided to go Chinese. We arrived on a cold November evening and after being seated we moved to a table near a radiator to warm up. The food was enjoyable, nothing outstanding either way but really good value price wise. So there's the good bit. At 10.30, in a... More

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience. The waitress who served you did offer to turn on the wall hung heater but you refused it. The central heating will be reset from now on. More

Very quiet on the night we visited, but it was a Sunday and it had not been open long, the take away was ongoing the whole time we were there though. Great service, very clean and the food was lovely and not too expensive. Highly recommend.

We were staying locally on holiday at a Lodge and just fancied a Chinese takeaway. A quick search on trip advisor and bingo! We definitely hit the jackpot with this one, great food, friendly staff, quick service. I wish this was local to my home as I would use it all the time. Trouble is now all of my Chinese... More

Ordered a takeaway for a family celebration and was given a 30 minute pick up time. After arriving at the restaurant I was told told that my order would be ready "soon" but after a further 45 minutes there was still no sign of my order. The reception staff were unable to give any indication of how long it would... More

So sorry to hear of your disappointing meal. That particular Saturday was much much busier than usual and we were caught off guard with not enough staff too! Please call the restaurant and ask to speak to the manager and we will sort something out for you. Sincere apologise again. More

This is a nice take away. Good is of good quality and very reasonably priced. Restaurant itself does not look very inviting, but staff are friendly and efficient

After a long day, this hit the spot. We ordered a set combo menu for two and there was enough food for lunch the next day. Some dishes were better than others. The spring rolls didn't have enough (or in some cases any) veg filling. The green curry wasn't the best. Really enjoyed the crispy seaweed and the other dishes... More

Just back form having dinner. Pleasant surprised after reading the reviews and the ranking i wasn't expecting much but wanted to give it a try, glad that I did. Arrived shortly after opening and for about 10 minutes was the only customer there. After about 20 minutes there were about 12 others dining in. During that time there were numerous... More

I popped in and ordered prawns in breadcrumbs - overcooked! Breadcrumbs hard and prawns dry with no flavour. Also ordered a spicy veggie soup and steamed rice. The soup was inedible! Too spicey - like too much tobasco sauce! Rice was OK. Started going to Thai Corner - Lush. So many fish dishes to choose from! Sorry Beijing, but you... More

Had many meals here both in the restaurant but mainly takeaways and they are never bad. Always get your order quickly and food is always hot and fresh.

All of these negative reviews are very unfair - given how cheap it is I thought the food was very acceptable. We had the £15 menu where you may order as many starters as you want. Your starters come on a big platter which gives a nice sharing feel. You then have your roast duck, mains and pudding (although we... More
