Unfortunately the standard of food from this takeaway is terrible. I have had 3 meals from here and the first one was ok, the second was awful and I gave them another chance as the staff are lovely but that was awful to. The fried food was all over cooked except the battered prawns where the batter was grey? Even... More

I've ordered takeaway from River Vale before and while not the quickest, had found the food to be great. When I called yesterday, I was told they were busy and it'd be an hour before my order would be ready. Fair enough, right up until I arrived an hour later to collect. I was initially told there'd be a further... More

Shown to our table and given menus and asked if we would like drinks, we picked our food, duck to start with, (awesome). Mains came and again (awesome ). Well let's say our food was lovely and we will be... More

Had a good meal last night but a little surprised given the reviews it was not the best Chinese ever. It was very consistent with good takeaway that you can find in most cities. Service was very pleasant and easy to order. Highlight of my meal was the duck spring rolls, lots of duck and cooked perfectly. Salt and pepper... More

Had a takeaway from the river vale whilst on holiday in the area. The owner was very welcoming and very chatty. Ordered beef with fresh chilli, egg fried rice and a hot and sour soup. It was all very nice and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone.

We discovered this place fairly recently, and I don't think I've had better Chinese food. The lady who runs it is so lovely and friendly, it is always a joy talking to her and the food is fabulous - I can't recommend it highly enough!

The takeaway we had today was the best we have had for years. The flavours were really good in all the dishes, and the service was excellent with my son being taught how to write in Chinese whilst waiting for the order.

Five of us attended on a Tuesday evening for a family member's birthday. The restaurant is very small but cosy and the host, Wai, was wonderful and very friendly. She spent plenty of time with us chatting and encouraging us with our food options. The food itself was delicious and tasted fresh. Options for dishes to be spicy or non... More
