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.

Worst Chicken “Shish” I’ve ever had, poor quality cheap flat chicken not even cubed or cooked as shish and the wrap not even grilled. This used to be my favourite in Chelmsford cannot believe how down hill this place has gotten and what they class...as large cheesy chips is far from it, sprinkled a little bit of cheese on the top of a small portion of chips, customer service just as disgusting, complete waste of money.More

Great stop for a burger or kebab before going home to do some gardening. A weekly treat and so local.

You never expect too much when you go to a van in a lay-by. But there’s still good and bad. This isn’t good. It’s awesome. The order is carefully noted, cooked to perfection and is absolutely delicious. Don’t expect restaurant quality. It’s a van. But...don’t for one minute think it’ll be subpar. I go at least a couple of times a week as my job takes me right past and it’s nice to get something hot to eat, especially in these weird times. The staff are all polite and friendly and I think what they have on offer is comprehensive and very reasonably priced. I wouldn’t continually go back to somewhere that was no good. I look forward to my visits here. I recommend the sausage & bacon baguette.More

the food here is delicious, from cheeseburgers to crispy chicken wraps and even grilled halloumi you really have your options open here. They have a variety of sauces (they make their own chilli sauce in fact!) and always have fresh salad. the service is really...great, as they are always polite and kind. id definitely recommend here! (AND, to the reviewer before me, even if there were other takeaway spots in this area, this would still be the best!)More

I was surprised to find this place where it's website said it would be and open when the site suggested it would be. They serve the expected range of fast food grilled/etc to order. Cheese burger and drinks as expected - not the fine dining...experience one might seek when taking a girl out for an important first date - however for late night opening on the edge of Braintree's Western Industrial Estate this is not only the best choice - it's your only choice.More
