Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Don’t be put off by the dated interior which hasn’t changed since the early 90s. This small family run business consistently serves the best quality Chinese food we’ve ever tasted. Always freshly prepared (either takeaway or dine in) and always the same high quality. If...you decide to dine in there no alcohol served but you can bring your own and they’re no issue or charges. Enjoy !More

Amazing food and great service. The man who served us was nice and kept checking up on us. Small but cosy restaurant, it’s bring your own booze which definitely saved money and we both liked this. Food was great, the salt and pepper chicken wings...were amazing! Would definitely recommend as prices were not ridiculous, only came to £25 with a starter, 2 mains, a side and a soft drink which is very reasonable. We will be back soon! :)More

I Will start with the positives. The food is very good value and with them not having a licence to serve alcohol this was actually an advantage as you can bring your own booze. This saved probably £30 at least. Most of the food we...ordered was tasty and promptly served although the spare ribs were a little over cooked. I can however only give 3* as there was a beef Sezchuan dish that was disgusting. It tasted like jellied eels! Also be aware they only take cash I was unaware and got caught in heavy rain trying to find a cash machine!More

We had a spur of the moment need for some Chinese food. Found the Mayfair on trip advisor and was lucky to get a booking on a Monday night. It is a small restaurant and it was packed when we arrived, and no wonder! The...food was excellent the service friendly and the value excellent. They don’t have a licence so it BYOB. But there is an excellent off-licence next door. It’s also cash only - but there is an atm next door as well. We had the crispy duck followed by Singapore noodles, sweet and sour chicken and duck in oyster sauce. All perfectly cooked and persuaded my daughter that Singapore noodles are worthwhile ordering. Please go - you will be pleased and the value was excellentMore

went to this little gem, mayfair Chinese restaurant, wasn't a very big restaurant and very basic, the food was absolutely fantastic, cooked from fresh and very well presented all at a reasonable price, we booked our table for 6.30, by 7pm it was full probably...about a dozen tables. The waiter probably the owner was the only one taking peoples orders and to say it was full he did a fantastic job of looking after evey body and you didn't have to wait long in between your courses. They don't serve alcohol only soft drinks, you can just take your own alcoholic drinks which is fantastic. If your ever in the area give them a try you won't be disappointed, I will certainly be going againMore
