staff are always very friendly when collecting your order and food does not disappoint. I often go for the salt and pepper chips or crispy shredded chicken in chilli sauce (which is a bit like a Peking sauce - has a sweetness to it).

I have used the Skirving for around 15 years and for a long time the food was about as good as it gets. On occasion you could expect an off day but that's to be expected. Unfortunately something has changed and the last four or five times our takeaway meals have been vile. I have kept hoping that the next... More

We ordered online with Just Eat at 7.20pm and the system indicated a delivery time of 8.05. By the time the order confirmation came through, the delivery time was showing as 8.25 (the system shows this as the 'requested delivery time' which is incorrect). Food arrived 9.10. That's more than double the delivery time. The restaurant said at 8.25 that... More

I am surprised by the average reviews of this Chinese. Please don't let them sway you too much as I personally haven't had any issues with this Chinese; the food has been outstanding! So give it a try and maybe you'll be surprised yourself by the quality. The spicy rice is a must try as is the salt and pepper... More

been twice and twice been short changed by one pound, lady at front reception must have skipped arithmetic class or has sideline agenda. also just eat clients appear to be served first regardless of who is first, sadly this impacts on the quality of food.

Starters were nice, but the main courses and rice were bland, felt reheated, with limp veg and gelatinous sauce reminiscent of the 1970s. Staff seemed more interested in watching tv than providing service. And they don't accept card payments!

Went to this takeaway on recommendation and wasn't impressed with either the bland food or the staff. No seasoning and a real lack of flavour, not to mention you can't even get parked outside it most of the time. Will not be returning any time soon, even if it was free.

Great Chinese. Claims to have the best curry sauce in the south side and I would agree. Beef satay is fantastic and I love the bbq spare ribs. Prawn crackers not too greasy and food made very fast. Only issue is they don't offer foo young dishes

This place is a food lovers palace! Each dish more delightful that the last! Oh my gosh you have to try it! Best service from kitchen to mouth in the south! King prawns recommended.
