Me and my boyfriend are new to the Hayes area and found this little Chinese just down the road from us. Normally we get a takeaway which is always reasonably priced and tastes delicious but on this occasion we decided to go in for a sit down meal and am so glad we did! We had soup and some dumplings...

Been going to the New Bowl for years, Suzie who runs it is lovely and looks after us every time. We use this Chinese a lot for business lunches, they have a great 3 course menu which is quick and very affordable or you can order off the main menu which offers a lovey selection of beautiful dishes.

My brother and his wife have just flown in from Asia and we were staying at the nearby Staycity Apartments. I have never been to hayes and resorted to searching on TA (as I always do) for a nice restaurant nearby to take them for dinner and I found this, which was very near to Staycity. The reviews on them... More

The restaurant is small & basic but the staff couldn't be more helpful and the food is delicious! Odering was easy and the delivery was fast. A little gem in a world of very basic and aweful chinese restaurants in London. Really a very pleasant experience as long as you are not looking for 5 star decor and are more... More

Hi my experience with New Bowl was a little below average. Food took over 1 hour to arrive, Which was not that great when it arrived. For starters the crispy lamb pancakes was full of fat and very hard to eat. The duck was cold and for the main which I had chicken curry with egg fried rice. The chicken... More

The décor is Asian, the proprietors are Asian, but the food didn't taste very Asian. Ample portion size was out-weighed by the lack of taste. This could be inexperience or a deliberate attempt to appease the local Londoners palate. If you want a large serving this is the place for you. If you want flavour, go elsewhere.

We were staying at a hotel in the Hayes area of England close to Heathrow and came across this little Chinese restaurant. There weren't many reviews anywhere on the web and the few that we found spoke highly of the food. The restaurant is a small modest place but the food was some of the tastiest that we've had anywhere... More

Have been here for a few times. Cheap Chinese lunch set, take away and dinner. The boss, Sue, is very friendly and always welcomes you. The food is proper Hong Kong style but sometimes a bit salty. My girlfriend and her colleagues often have lunch here. Always feel at home especially when talking to Sue in Cantonese! Highly recommended!

The usual endless menu. Dishes listed as "hot" are at best a bit spicy. Sauces were pretty good, but rice was clumpy and sticky. Service was fine. I'd give 3.5 stars if I could.
