After a very bad meal on news years eve, I called in to day for a takeaway this evening, king prawn fu yong, (no flavour totally bland) egg fried rice, (soggy and no egg) spring roll, (soggy not crisp at all just dripping with fat) chips, (warm over cooked and lots of burnt bits). Well it went in the bin.

Once we had finally got our food which... More

All the meat was like rubber (Beef, Pork and Chicken) and even after chewing many times would stay in one piece. The 'beef' was just strings of fat. I also found metal shavings in my rice was topped the whole thing off. Slow Boat used to be a lovely take away but this is no longer the case. £25 for... More

Having spent the night in A&E, my boyfriend ordered a takeaway for when I returned. Needless to say, I came home to him lay on the couch feeling sick having eaten about 4 mouthfuls of food before throwing it away. Hungry & fed up, I warmed up my 'special curry'. To say it looked unpleasant is a compliment! It literally... More

I use this regularly. Food is good, service is good and very prompt. I'd recommend the Fried Chilli Beef and Singapore Chow Mein

Ordered salt and spice chips and they arrived as ordinary chips with a few onions thrown in too, the chips were also dry and only warm-ish The chicken was also dry and chewy. Very disappointed.

This was by far the worst food I have ever tasted in any takeaway ever. I passed and was hungry. I wish I had carried on walking. Staff were pleasant and well mannered.
