Speedy delivery, polite, friendly staff always. Food is as expected really; good, not mind blowing, with a few disappointments on occasion. Definitely well suited to a lazy evening in, but not really a treat. They have a few wee deals and a loyalty scheme that have been useful. Don't get the crispy won ton starter thingies though, they have next... More

I have used this take away for a couple of years now. It never fails to deliver good hot food with dished that are not available in other take aways. Try the Hot pot, nice and spicy without being over powering.

Take away can be so hit and miss but the Ginger Express is consistent with it good standards. I especially like the Hotpot and Singapore style noodles. Their salt n chilli squid is also very good.

Possibly the worst thing I've ever tasted, crispy shredded beef in chilli sauce tasted of dirty cooking oil, through whole takeaway in the bin I didn't even open the rice the smell knocked me sick! Don't waste your money it was shocking!

We had a carry out from here, 98% of it has gone to the bin. It was the most disgusting carry out I have ever tasted. These places do a disservice to other perfectly good take aways and should be had by the trade descriptions act!
