always very quick service. The type of place you go to for a quick meal rather than a cosy evening out. Great value for money

Food was lovely. Only thing when we say we waiting for some one to join us before we order. We don't expect staff to keep coming up to ask if we are ready to order . Before our friend arrived.was asked about 5 times. Besides that staff were nice

Lovely food! We tend to have the specials menu where you get a starter and a main. All prices are reasonable though! Food is served promptly but cooked from scratch so don't mind waiting those few extra minutes. Recommend the ribs and beef in black bean :-) both of which are my favourites along with Yuk sung a close second... More

We visited Tastes after a cinema visit, very convenient as it is virtually next door. Amazingly low prices. I had the prawns in black bean sauce, the prawns were scrummy but the sauce was more like koon po and a bit hot for me. The lemon chicken was also a large portion but little flavour and the batter a bit... More

As a couple before we go to the cinema to watch the latest film or block buster movie we always drop into Tastes for a meal, and over the years of doing this they have never failed to deliver a real good meal. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out the staff are very warm,... More

Bench seating comfortable enough, personally I like the interior, uncluttered and simple, colourful too. Service was polite, attentive and efficient. Food came out quickly, looked fresh and was nicely presented. My szechuan special was spicy and full of flavour, as were the vermicelli Singapore style noodles. A tad expensive but there are lots of meal deals too. Would happily return.

So a comfortable seating plan has been thrown out for getting the quantity of people in The food was... More

The seating in this restaurant is like going back to school in the 1960s. Wooden blocks or benches with NO backs. Comfort is Nil. There are no moveable seats for disabled people to sit on , wheelchair access is ok but not for dining! There is no atmosphere, music or normal Chinese type decor, I felt I was eating in... More

Great Chinese my mum and my three children regularly attend here on a Saturday lunch time. The lady who I think is called lily is absolutely brilliant so attentive and meets all requirements. It's our favourite Chinese full stop!
