We visited Tong Sam last night for my Brothers 18th Birthday meal. He ate free as we booked and told the restaurant in advance. We felt we should leave a review as after coming many times a year for many years the food and service is still the high quality it has always been. One of the reasons we love... More

We ordered a set menu takeaway for four. Food arrived 45 minutes later, still warm but we kept things in the oven whilst we got through the starters and duck. The selection was good and the quantities were generous. The taste was just average, a bit salty everywhere, and nothing to trouble the average Michelin chef with. Not the worst... More

Have been before and loved the food and the presentation, always tasted good. Well that was about a year ago, i advise anyone now not to bother and visit Lumpini instead. The service was crap not waited on or looked after and the size of the portions was joke. Having been before (several times) the food always came out on... More

Fancied Chinese and there's not many places around Dunstable where you can eat in, so decided give this place a go. Menu on the window is the take away one, didn't see any advertising of being a set menu anywhere. The waitress sit us down and took drinks order straight away. After the drinks arrived, we were given the menu... More

Booked a meal on Christmas day for a group of ten. All I can say is the day was fantastic with excellent food and service. Big positive was they don't hike the prices like many other resturants and quality of food does not alter from any other time of the year. Being going on Christmas day for nine years now... More
