We have a takeaway from here every Saturday evening and have done for the last 2 years. Never had a bad meal and the food has always been good. Sometimes this small takeaway gets very busy and orders can be slow. Worth the wait every time, if it's busy, it must mean it's good as there is plenty of competition... More

We had an issue with ordering, seems the locals like to stand at the counter, even when they have ordered so we had a bit of a struggle to get to the counter. Plenty of seats so not sure why they don't sit down? Never experienced ordering quite like it as no number given - called out by amount spent... More

I couldn't speak highly enough of this Chinese takeaway in my first review but I have seriously changed my mind. It would seem the business has changed hands...and that's not the only thing that's changed. The food was tasteless; the beef curry was a million miles away from the ones I enjoyed last year. The food hygiene rating has dropped... More

Went in tonight having not been in for a few years. Was completely stunned by the rude staff behind the counter. And it is not a question of a language barrier, please and thank you cost absolutely nothing! I did ponder if I should review it but after going on to tripadvisor I can see I'm not alone in my...

Although the food is very good the take away is severely let down by the man in front of house. His attitude to the customers was and is atrocious, he was in welcoming to say the least, he was Curt, sharp , and downright rude to customers. If I hadn't been hungry I would have walked out never to return... More
