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.

We were staying nearby and spotted the China Munchy Box on the way to Elgin town centre. The menu is very extensive and the staff were very helpful to suggest things. The Chow Mein with shrimp was absolutely delicious and the salt and pepper chips...complemented this perfectly. One of my family members got a munchy box deal and this was full to the brim and so delicious too! This takeaway is cash only, however there is a cash machine located at the Scotmid nearby for convenience. Highly recommended!More

Be aware that after placing & paying for your order online, this restaurant will request more money at delivery for your order if you are outside Elgin. I ordered through JustEat with my post code and delivery was calculated at £4, which is reasonable, but...they wanted another £6 on the door, making the delivery charge £10 for a 7 mile delivery. My refund for cancelling the order is still pending with JustEat 12 hours later!More

The last few months this place has totally gone down hill, takes ages for food to arrive and quality is a hit or a miss! Ordered recently and food missing from delivery, still chasing after 40 mins of promises, wanted missing food and as a...gesture of goodwill to at least get my money back as the rest was cold. Said only way I could get my money back was to return the cold food!! Shocking service and very poor customer service!! So threw food in a box waiting for someone to pick it up from my front door!! Do not order from there!!More

I never write reviews especially bad ones but after waiting for two hours for a Chinese that was cold and so unappealing that I have to take 5 minutes out of my sad life to rant. Firstly I’d like to point out that I love...Chinese and it is the only thing that gives me purpose in life but this just made me empty and sad inside. The honey chicken was so sweet I had 3 mouth fulls before I felt sick, the vegetable spring rolls were soggier than a wet napkin, fair play the rice was edible. 1.5/10 would not recommendMore

Total sh1t-show. Ordered foor on JustEat app - ordered minimum amount, plus delivery. Then get a phone call saying I need to pay more than double the listed delivery amount as I am not 'local'. Nothing said about this on the app or the confirmation,...or the 'thumbs up' I received from the restaurant on the app. The person who rang was extremely difficult to understand - the connection wasn't very good, and the restauranteur's communication skills left a lot to be desired. In the end they cancelled my order and told me to ring JustEat to arrange my refund!!! Genuinely baffled and utterly frustrated by this attempt to order some food. I shall be avoiding this place in future.More

Absolutely horrific. Waited two hours. Food was freezing. Delivery driver didn’t have any change and didn’t return with the change. Disgusted. The picture is of crispy aromatic duck that cost £8.50. Don’t use this place guys

I believe this was the second time I've sampled a 'box' from here. We had no issues with the order over the phone - very straightforward. The online payment was also painless. Our collection time was about thirty minutes onwards from the placement, which I...thought was fairly quick for a Saturday night. Unfortunately the food wasn't up to scratch on this occasion (for me anyway). Although the 'Beef Curry', 'Spare Ribs' and 'Thin Noodles' were brilliant, the 'Sweet And Sour Chicken Balls' were bland and the 'Salt And Pepper Chips' were considerably lacking in seasoning. I felt there wasn't enough sauce to soak up the dry elements either. All of that aside, I finished everything in the foil tray. For a takeaway, very much average - by no means the worst I've had but definitely room for improvement in a few areas.More

Waited atleast 45 minutes to an hour for food. When waiting inside it was very very cold. The girls behind the counter had coats on it was that cold. The food was very good tho. It was a busy Saturday so maybe thats what caused...the long wait. The young girl behind the counter was very friendly and was apologetic that it toom so long.More

On the back of some good reviews from work colleagues, a group of us ordered a takeaway from this business. We picked the food up from the premises and after a bit of drama caused by my £20 note, we ventured home to give it...a try. With regard to value for money, you were looking at around £13.00 for a five piece selection box. For me, that was very good. Unfortunately, the quality of the food could have been better. In particular, I found my ‘Chips’ and ‘Shredded Beef’ to be quite dry. However, the ‘Curry Sauce’ and ‘S&S Chicken Balls’ were incredible! The portions were generous and we were given free ‘Prawn Crackers’. Would I visit again? Definitely, but I would experiment with other choices or potentially order normal portions. Overall, a relatively enjoyable experience.More

Had a couple of pints, then a couple more. Then a friend showed up and I had a few more. Then I had this Chinese. Hit the spot, best munch I’ve had in years.
