Chicken chow mein smelt off. Singapore noodles was noodles with curry sauce in it not what we were expecting. Sweet and sour sauce had no taste to it. Will not be going here again.

Vile! Hard, old chips, sweet and sour sauce thick and gloopy (strangely tasteless), bland inedible sauces, burnt prawn toast and spring rolls - the dog wouldn't even touch the meat or spare ribs.... need I go on?

Me and the Mrs ordered this as a Friday night treat to save cooking anything. Safe to say I wish we hadn't bothered! The special fried rice was bland with and over cooked fried egg on top with some bitter brown sauce, no veg and only some over cooked meat! The salt chilli ribs were just plain ribs with some...

The only positive comment is that our order arrived 15 minutes early. Prawn toasts were burnt, tiny spring rolls were dried up, can't comment on ribs because they looked so unappetising that no-one tried them! Chicken in black bean sauce consisted of half a chicken completely smothered with a black tar-like substance, and the omelette was served on top of... More

We always have a Chinese from here. If we are away we don't often find somewhere as nice for take out Chinese.

Absolutely disgusted that a Chinese delivery TREAT is inedible and when you ring to query why the chips are hard and can only be described as old! The sweet and sour chicken is stuck together with no sauce and the food is cold! You get discount next time? There won't be a next time and wasting £15 on food you... More

We ordered a takeaway for delivery from them this evening which had an estimated delivery time of 20:10. At 20:15 I called to chase to be told that they had pushed time back to 20:40. This was inconvenient as my husband needed to get ready for his night shift but we put it down to being a busy Saturday night.... More

Staying in a lodge park nearby, this takeaway was listed in the welcome pack, however, I would rate a pot noodle far higher. Our order consisted of chips that could only be described as a few days old(at best), expensive plain chow mein which tasted like dirty oil, and two king prawn main dishes that were exactly the same aside...

I have a fussy husband who only likes chinese food from a certain place. Having it been closed when we rang we decided to give this one a try. Food was delicious chicken in black pepper sauce with lovely big mushrooms and sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style we can definitely recommend. Chips not brilliant abit harder than we'd... More

Me and my family have been going to this Chinese for years. I have never had to make a complaint about the Chinese since I have been living in my own house with my partner. I would definitely recommend this Chinese if anybody just fancies a takeaway and some telly time or to linen your stomach before you go on... More
