We've been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years and the food has always been reliably good. When ever we visit London we always eat at the Mayflower. I think there may have been a change of management since our last visit but the food was just as good with good sized portions. There are many Chinese restaurants in... More

went there for a small dinner, just to warm me up after a day visiting the city. the well groomed and well mannered waiters assisted me immediately, the food was served in minutes. tea was pipping hot so i had to wait a bit to drink it.. overall good and fast.

Mayflower is PERFECT for the hungry bellys after a night out as they close at 4:30am After a while of not going there due to busy schedule i requested for a friend to take me there for my birthday. *sigh* i was really not impressed with the food i received. My rice was so tasteless the waiter had to taste... More

Please make sure you review your take away. We ordered for Beef with Mushroom for £4.20. All we got is mushroom. Even pork is filled with a lot of fillers.

This restaurant was a great find! The staff were super friendly. Crispy duck was very tender. Portions were very large. Chicken with oyster sauce was very tender. I noticed a few people taking portions of food home. Really good value too - £60 for 4 of us in the centre of London - amazing! That was for main meals, starters... More

Not good at all. The wine left a lot to be desired but hey... More

Great food however felt rushed as they were so busy no space between courses. Sea bass was excellent as was the crispy chilli beef. Would go again when next in the area

You can make some Chinese food mistakes in South Norwood... going here isn't one of them. It's a very decent Chinese takeaway, with somewhat spartan seating space if you want to eat in. Service is fine, fast and - most important - the food's good; they'll make things more or less spicy, depending on your taste, which is always a... More
