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.

First time visiting China Chef yesterday and was a great first time experience. Lady behind counter absolutely lovely, very kind and chatty. Family run business for 45+ years aswell which is nice. Only slight downfall is that the food is quite expensive compared to other...chippys, but I suppose the price reflects the quality of the food because it is delish. Curry sauce quite oily but apart from that very tasty!!!More

Organised a fish and chip evening for my elderly neighbours in the communal lounge of our block of flats - Helen was super-friendly, the food was ready for collection on time and the child portions much larger than expected. Most have used China Chef before....All enjoyed their meal and would use again..More

We were travelling back from Calne to Windsor Berkshire Thursday 24th August in the evening and saw this take away so decided to pull over. The service was excellent and the couple were so friendly and polite. The battered sausage and chips were the best...we have tasted in a very long time. We had a lovely chat whilst the meal was being wrapped up and learned that this family have been running this take away for over 40 years in Royal Wootton Bassett. I was given the telephone number in case I ever needed to pre-order my meal on the way through in the future. China Chef are a well established take away and I cannot fault the food, it was really tasty and piping hot, adding service with a smile and genuine niceness made the visit so worth while!! Thanks very muchMore

The China Chef in Royal Wootton Bassett is simply one of the best Fish & Chip shops in Wiltshire and beyond. Helen and Kam run a clean , efficient and friendly business and display a real warmth towards all their customers. The food is always...excellent and great value, especially when you see the size of the regular Cod! A visit here is highly recommended.More

I have some awkward food allergies that make take away food challenging for me. Helen and her team were super helpful in recommending menu items that are suitable for me and even offered to cook something to order for me. The food was exceptionally good...in comparison to other chip shops in the area, and I would recommend them to everyone.More

Helen was very attentive towards special dietary requirements within our family gathering, offering several dishes that could be cooked in a different way to assist with these issues. All enjoyed and it meant that everyone was included. Thankyou!! Highly recommend this great chippy!!
