3 dishes and 2 sides for £36. Beef Szechuan was good. Salt and chilli chicken, flavour was good but coating was thick. The honey chilli chicken was really poor, chicken separate to sauce, chicken was greasy and the flavour wasn’t good. Very disappointing as we’d driven 20 minutes based on trip advisor reviews

Amazing service, very friendly staff and made small talk while being served. All the food was freshly prepared and some was prepared in front of me. Would highly recommend if you a looking for good Chinese food whether that’s take away or sit in.

First time visiting this restaurant, it was my birthday dinner, we choose here as my son doesn’t eat Chinese food with sauces but The Welcome had a kids menu available. The portions were big, the food was very tasty. The staff were lovely and always checking if everything was ok. Overall the food was
fabulous and our visit was excellent, we will definitely be back.
