Greasy tasteless slow never never again! Don't be fooled by the tidy exterior/interior food is dreadful!

I wish I'd read these reviews before ordering at the weekend. The online ordering service was efficient and delivery was prompt. However, it was all downhill from there. The crispy duck was not very crispy; it was soggy and greasy. The plum sauce, which should be the highlight, was the worst I've ever had - cloying and sticky when it... More

There are very few Chinese takeaways in Stroud so over the years we have probably stuck with Hotcha more than we should have - main criticisms have been delivery (I would never do this again) and poor service. The food has always been average but tasty enough and we have never been ill - just hungry by the time we... More

We ordered a takeaway and the food didn't taste fresh, was really greasy and made us both sick throughout the night and we both had to take the day off work. Very unhappy. Won't ever use you again. Used to be nice, but gone downhill and seems to be no longer cooked fresh

We had a voucher through for this take-away restaurant when it opened, so as we like a take-away regularly we decided to give it a shot. We ordered typical Chinese takeaway food - nothing complicated, so it should have been great - but it was disappointingly bland, and we ended up throwing half of it away.

I can't comment on the food because we didn't actually get a chance to eat it due to it never being delivered!! I ordered the food online and after almost 2 hours wait and 3 phone calls enquiring where our food was...nothing! First two phone calls I was informed that our food is with the driver. Third and final call... More

Having not tried Hotcha before and being fans of good Chinese food and dining out we thought to try it. Firstly the menu lay out with (misleading) photos of the main dishes was unclear, the prices being situated elsewhere on the page. The photos, for which to guide your tastebuds, did not correspond to the description of what your meal... More

We've ordered from Hotcha before and had great take out but this time we were left disappointed. First thing was the change in menu - we ordered, as we always have, the feast for 2. This 'used' to come with two starters but now you only get to choose one - for the same price. Also, the packaging has changed... More

Hello Belinda, Firstly I'd like to thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback, we read all feedback and find it very useful. Our new menu changes were influenced by feedback we've had. Many people wanted more options for size, especially with the rice and noodle dishes. I'm afraid there has been a slight increase in prices and... More

Food was very dry, wouldn't recommend, ordered prawn toast which was ok, but hot and spicy chicken wasn't what I expected, it was very dry.

Hello there, Thank you for leaving feedback. We're sorry the Hot & Spicy Chicken wasn't as you expected, however this dish is a dry dish and this is written in the description of the product on the menu. If you prefer a saucy option we have many tasty sauces available including classics like Sweet & Sour and Black Pepper as... More
