I had a chowmein last night tasted vile and so salty not fit for human consumption. Plus you have to spend 30 pounds to get free prawn crackers. Other restraints on the area are better and provide Free prawn crackers

I've been patient and stuck with them hoping it would change but the sad truth is it hasn't! The 2 star rating is generous in my eyes. The food I ordered was... More

I have used this Chinese on numerous occasions. The food is not the tastiest Chinese i have ever tasted. I have had metal filings in my dinner from this restaurant last year. Recently tried it this week absolutely brand, we now use a Chinese in long eaton so much nicer.

Thought I would have a change from my usual in keg worth and check this place out again. Biggest regret of my life. The man serving me was more interested in watching the tv than helping me with my order. All felt very rushed. Said I couldn't swap the sweet and sour sauce with curry yet every other Chinese I...

A wrote a poor review a year or so ago for this take away but wanted a Chinese on a Monday and my regular good Chinese in Kegworth isn't open Mondays. So i thought every one deserves second chance and maybe its improved since my last review. Sorry to report it hasn't, still poor quality, unfriendly and expensive. I'm sure... More

Happy to grab your order and money, then give you the worse Chinese ever. Shame really. I can't see it lasting long in this village.

I was provided with a menu when I checked in to the Holiday Inn express at East Midlands Airport. My order was placed on the telephone and less than 30 minutes later a delightful and HOT food delivery arrived at the door. Very tasty and most efficient. Thank you
