I ate at this takeaway a few years ago and the food was lovely. My recent experience however was not good. Although the staff are friendly and the service is quick, the food does not compare to other Chinese takeaways I've had. The chow mien was very soggy and the chicken with it was stuck together and did not taste... More

I am somewhat of an expert when it comes to Chinese takeaways :) So When I say that this is unlike ANY Chinese take away I've had....I mean it, and not in a good way :-o To be fair to the place, it's a really nice wee shop and appears spotlessly clean but that's where it ends I'm afraid. We... More

We fancied a chinese take away to eat in our apartment and omg it's disgusting! "crispy noodles" basically uncooked dry noodles no idea who would eat that! My son loves noodles but he would have choked on them, chicken fried rice was strangest chicken it was Brown and wet nothing like other places. Over priced and rubbish wouldn't go back.... More

We ordered Special Curry and combination Szechuan with fried rice and thought I had cracked it as the carry out was 'heavin' and thought I wouldn't let the 'happy harry' who served me, who I think may have been called Derek, spoil it as he was charmless. The cost was a bit on the steep side but I thought what... More

We ordered a takeaway on a Saturday night for the full family and were truly disappointed.Each person's meal was bland and tasteless obviously no seasoning or flavour was added. Will not use again.

Sunday evening al fresco dining with a wonderful vista just a shame the food didn't match the backdrop. I ordered a special curry and a proton of fried rice my friend had a crispy noodle dish with chicken. Again, like the chippy in Brodick the lack of competition takes another victim of taking custom for granted !!! The various meats... More

This is the only option for Asian food in Brodick. It's just a takeaway place but the meals we ordered were delicious and not over-spiced and the people were friendly.

This used to be a great wee takeaway but recently it's not anywhere near as good as it used to be. Many requests when ordering get lost in translation, down to the language barrier. Wouldn't ask for anything 'extra spicy' as they don't seem to have fresh chillies here and instead use chilli oil which doesn't blend well with some... More
