Ordered food and was given an estimated wait of an hour. After it was 45 minutes overdue I tried to ring the restaurant but couldn't get through. About 15 minutes after that I finally got through and was greeted by a lady who could barely hear me because a man was shouting in the background about deliveries being late and... More

The title says it all really. The food is consistently disappointing and very boring, and the range in the menu is quite small. If you are in the Whitley Street area of Reading, the Wok on Wheels is vastly superior.

In general it was ok . A variety of choices to select from . The only point that does not give 5 stars is the food was smelling the same way it didn't matter what you chose from . I will go there again

Ordered a takeaway at 8.21 by phone. They told me they were busy so it would be 45mins to 1hr. At 9.21 I rang them as no food had arrived. They said it would be ten mins. After ten minutes I called to check they had the right address. The guy on the phone was apologetic and said he'd ring... More

Popped in after a late night at work. A nice chap served me and I paid. That was the high point of the meal, downhill from there. I have never left a spring roll, until now. These were greasy and stuffed full of 5 spice. The Singapore noodles were not vermicelli as advertised, but badly done chow mein with curry... More

Ordered a takeaway via Just Eat. Food was lukewarm, over cooked and bland and delivery took nearly an hour. All of the sauces were congealed and the squid was rubbery and tasteless. Suggest cooking all of the food for less time would allow faster delivery!

They have never disappointed us, the food is consistent in quality each tiime we visit now 3 times. Either choose the all you can eat buffet or the regular menu, either way the dishes are good.
