Terrible, inedible food and over an hour wait for 5 dishes takeaway and one of those was wrong. 5th time of trying to see if it ever improves but won't be going back.

Tony who runs the restaurant could not be more helpful or a better host - Nothing is too much which makes the service fantastic. Food is great with a variety of options!

Booked a table for 7 at 7pm on Saturday. Upon arrival, we were still waiting over 20 mins without being asked for drinks. We chased this up only to find ourselves waiting another 15 mins for them to arrive. This was the story of the whole night of which the food took 2 hours apart from when we asked for... More

Been getting takeaways from Chef King for years! Great food, better than any other Chinese takeaways I've had, even in major cities! The chow meins are especially great compared to the bland, fatter noodles you are served at other places :D
