Went last night with my husband, wasn't our first choice but the other places fully booked. Food was really nice and arrived quickly, we went for the set menu for £19pp, mixed starters platter followed by crispy duck then a choice of 2 mains with egg fried rice. Service was great and the drinks reasonable, the major downside was how... More

I haven't been in Kendal for months, but my visit, today, to this excellent restaurant was like coming home. The staff were just lovely. As for the food, I had chicken with cashew nuts in yellow bean sauce. It was full of succulent meat and really tasty. The rice was fluffy and light. Still highly recommended.

(reviewing specifically the takeaway, we've never eaten in here) I've never been a fan of Chinese cuisine and this place completely changed my mind. Their veggie platter is spot on, all fresh ingredients, made from scratch. no frozen nonsense, perfectly cooked, absolutely delicious. As a vegetarian I cannot vouch for their meat, but I stand by them when I say... More

We visited on business in the evening and found that the staff were struggling to understand English due to them being Easter European. They could do with brushing up on their language skills if serving people everyday! One of our party enquired about a certain sauce but the staff had no idea and didn't bother to enquire with the chef... More

Bejing House - (181 Highgate Kendal) Last night (19th November 2016) I visited the Bejing House Chinese restaurant in Kendal at 181 Highgate. I pre booked, which, Im glad I did! as it was very busy. Kendal mountain festival may have had to play apart in this! I was shown to a table upstairs. I was the only person up... More

Really poor. 'Crispy Shredded Steak' was indeterminate mushy chewy meat. Spring rolls managed to be both burnt and soggy. Lemon chicken awful. Avoid

The table was set with a spoon and fork at each place. My starter required a knife which I had to ask for rather than it being brought with the dish. My main also required a knife and, as the original knife had by now been cleared away, I AGAIN had to request one. As I began my meal I... More

Once again, a lovely meal that "hit the spot". Tasty won ton soup was followed by some excellent beef served in yellow bean sauce with cashew nuts. The staff are always really great and the food good value.

Arrived in Kendal on a Monday to lots of restaurant options on the Internet...problem was hardly any places were open. Found this restaurant by a desperate search for somewhere to eat and we were glad we found it. The restaurant is basic in its decor and design and a little tired but the staff were welcoming and attentive, and the... More
