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.

If I could mark it less than one star, I would. I have used Open Kitchen for years and very rarely had a complaint. I’m not sure if it has changed ownership, but the quality of the food is awful. Had a terrible meal this...evening. I was tempted to bring the whole lot back. We will never use this place again……More

This is our go-to Chinese in Sleaford due to the set meal for two. It has gone up by a couple of pounds since the last menu, but for what you get I still believe it to be good value for money. The food itself...is average; ribs are nice, special fried rice is poor compared to others I have had, but the other dishes in the set are good.More

We called to order food and was greeted with possibly THE most rude person ever to run front of house! She even went as far as arguing with us about what we were ordering even though it’s written that way on the menu (WHICH IS...UP TO DATE ) in case anyone was wondering. Food was late out I waited 10 mins after the time and wasn’t even spoken to by their front of house until she finished snapping at another half dozen people ringing orders in. I then was shown the amount on the card reader as she obviously was far too busy to tell me herself , she then passed me my box without a thank you or a have a nice evening or even enjoy your meal (which we did not!) I then arrived home with the long awaited Chinese which for the most part was OK but the nut sauce was just a curry sauce and a bad example at that!, they forgot the prawns in the special curry and it was very watery and extremely salty so much so that it was not even eaten, my crispy beef was overdone and tasted burnt and the special fried rice had prawns that did not taste very fresh and had been de veined just very poorly!!! OVERALL A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE THAT WILL NOT BE REPEATED!!!!!!!!More

We received a menu through our door a few days ago and thought we would give them a try. When I phoned they were having computer trouble and asked me to phone back, which I did and was able to order. II asked for a...set dinner for three which included 9 items. I was told that that two of these items were not included in this set meal. On querying this I was asked if I was looking at the online menu. I told her that it was the new menu which I had just received but she insisted that the two items were not part of this meal. I decided to purchase one of these items seperately. The meal was delivered within the stated time but, apart from a spare rib and the rice, was not very good and definitely not value for money. Will not be using this place again.More

Not so many months ago this local restaurant was a gem. Now?......I can only assume a complete change in chefs. My choice tonight “Salt and Pepper Squid” ...used to be full of squid with a light tempura type batter, loads of chilli and salt. Tonight....Hardly...any squid deep fried in a claggy, hard, almost chip fat batter......no discernible chilli, no salt. Spare Ribs Cantonese.......Rock hard and full of gristle. The only saving grace was the House Special Fried Rice which really, really good. So, £24 for some really good rice delivered to the door. Never again!!More
