Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We just had our first delivery and to say we are disappointed is an understatement. What a waste of money the food was disgusting. Crispy chilli beef was soggy chewy uneatable and just horrible, the crispy squid was also soggy and chewy, and the portion...sizes are also ridiculously small. Called to complain customer service is awful! Never again 🤮🤮🤮 Make sure you go across the road to new world you won’t be disappointed !More

Waited 2.5 hours for delivery, we called twice and they said it’s on its way. It wasn’t. When it was delivered the food was cold, dry and lacking in flavour. I highly recommend not eating here. Terrible service and terrible food

Fantastic Lemon Chicken and Beef in Black Bean sauce tonight with steamed rice. As always the food was exquisitely flavoured and extremely hot and tasty! Service was great too - only 15-20 mins and very friendly when we picked up the food. Have been back...here many times and will definitely continue to do so. Highly recommend. Must have had over 100 meals from this takeaway and never disappointed.More

New to area so trying various takeaways. Have to say this was disappointing. Portion of sesame toast small, chicken in the curry tough and dry. Certainly not the best in area and on the expensive side. Shan't use again.

Been going here for years and knew John and his family since the 1970s. The food, cooked by his two songs, is amazing and extremely flavoursome! We had beef in black bean sauce and the kung po chicken - they were very good sized portions...and the meat was cooked to perfection in some extremely delicious sauces! The boiled rice was fluffy and just perfect. Will always use this restaurant as we come to visit my Mum fairly frequently and always have a treat by getting takeaway from here! Thanks Lon Wah!More

We have been loyal customers here for many years and it pains me to leave a bad review....but after 2 bad takeaways recently we are unlikely to have another for quite some time. The food was either dry or very greasy. Lacked flavour and barely...any sauce. It’s not the cheapest by far so the standard is simply not acceptable. I will keep an eye on the reviews and will only try again once things are back to consistently good.More

Ordered a takeaway and picked it up just a few minutes before they closed. Chose sesame prawn toasts, ribs, pancake roll, egg fried rice and sweet and sour chicken balls, and it was all excellent. Portion sizes are just right.

Ordered the set menu for 2 and at £39 not the cheapest but heard it was good. The starters were hard and cold. Nothing nice to say about it sadly. Flavourless and looked unappetising. In the current situation, businesses can’t afford to lose custom and...that’s what we tried to support but never again.More
