Went last night with a friend, waited around 45 mins for starters, 45 mins for mains. Staff we not great. It took us 3 attempts to ask for the bill before someone gave it to us. They seem to be more focused on the takeaway business rather than those who are eating in. Food was OK it was hot which... More

I had food here on a Monday evening and the waitress who served me was appalling. Very poor attitude and a very unappealing manner. She even tutted when i did not leave a tip - the cheek! The food was overpriced and the curry i was given was terrible. I would strongly recommend NOT eating here.

This was always one of our favorite restaurants for Chinese takeaway, however over the past few months it has appeared to go down hill. Our last takeaway we had was terrible all the sauces in which the food was cooked was at best bland the prawn toasts were rock solid and the Ribs in BBQ were put in with the... More

If you like over priced, tasteless, cold and small portioned Chinese food then this is the place for you. It's very rare that the entire takeaway is not eaten in this house but on this occasion the foxes can turn their noses up when it's all in the bin. For the price it's a complete waste of money.

Just ordered a take away from The Swan as we have no cash so used them as they take debit card. We will never be ordering from them again, the food is cold, very small portions, overly priced, Chicken Balls you couldn't get your teeth into, Special Fried Rice with nothing special in it and a lack of sauce in...

Thanks to this Chinese after the amount of grease in my food I am now a member of the t-birds, I can certainly say I've blocked my arteries and seriously decreased my life expectancy, should have gone new China I felt like I was at a diging for chicken like panning for gold after ordering the smoked "chicken" WORST CHINESE...
