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.

Went for a family meal to celebrate a birthday, food was brilliant, served promptly and hot. Couldn’t have wished for better service from Jessica and her team. Great place to eat and best tasting Chinese for miles. Try it, you will want to go back...time and time again.More

Called in with granddaughter, after she had appeared in panto next door, for supper. Surprisingly, the place was empty, apart from takeaway customers and drivers. Wide range of food available (we were on a la carte, but would have been very happy with buffet option...also). Very speedy service and food arrived surprisingly quickly. All delicious. Only issue was very enthusiastic lady, who kept a very close eye on us, and whipped dishes, etc. away, even before we had finished with them. Still, only a small matter, but did feel a bit rushed. Overall, a lovely meal, and highly recommend this restaurant.More

Came for the all you can eat which is a great price. Little disappointed in the overcooked tofu. Otherwise was nice. Small portions but can order more if you can eat more. Good idea to try new items on menu.

Had good takeaways from here so tried the buffet for first time, it was not a good experience. We were the only people dining and felt hounded to ordering our meals,and we were told after one hour we had 30 minutes left before our 90...minutes were up; it’s not what people say it’s how they say it. Cold, tasteless and frankly not a great dining experience that explains why it was completely empty. At £22 a head, overpriced for the basics on offer. Too many good restaurants within 2 minutes to bother again, awful.More

The food was very good quality and tasted wonderful. Last week we also had a great experience so it's no coincidence that the chef and his team are creating great food at prices that are good value for the portions. We love Chifan and the...whole team. Jessica on the front desk is always a delight to talk to and catch up on news. An all-round fab restaurant and our Chinese restaurant of choice in the area.More

Chinese Chicken Curry and Egg Fried Rice Take Out! Really poor - Both dishes cold, mushrooms deep fried, curry tasted of nothing and really watery! Shame I was looking forward to visiting to dine in! If this is the standard then best avoid!

Had many meals here over the years and have always come away extremely happy. Last night’s meal was appalling and one of the worst Chinese meals I’ve ever eaten. The dishes were mainly filler (onions and peppers) and very little actual item. Crispy shredded beef...was chewy and several dishes barely warm. If it had been busy I would have made allowance but we were the ONLY diners so there was no excuse. Won’t be returning.More

I have had many takeaways from here and they are usually excellent...however tonight the food was appalling!! Utterly inedible, cold and simply vile!! Shocking. If it wasn't the middle of winter, and very cold I would walk back and complain in person.

Surprisingly good. We stopped in on the way back home & weren’t sure what to expect when the restaurant was virtually empty at 8.30pm on a Saturday nigh (Nov 5th so bonfire night ….) - didn’t bode well! But the service was quick and efficient,...the food was very good and the staff were very friendly. Several takeouts picked up whilst we were there and more people arrived just before we left. A little gem. Give it a go.More
