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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were away for a little break and didn’t want to cook so decided on a take away, from the minute we call it was excellent customer service the girl who answered the phone was so friendly, we placed our order and waited they called...us back as one item was unavailable so changed it . We got our delivery and we were not disappointed the food was amazing chicken n black bean, Hong Kong style s&s chicken and chicken fried rice all food was also piping hot . Thank you so much for excellent service and delivery would definitely use again if staying in the Merklands Lodge …..More

We’ve had some nice takeaway meals from this place in the past. Got another takeaway yesterday, most of it went in the bin unfortunately. Overcooked and dry and the rice was actually inedible. Really dreadful sadly. It was meant to be a mid week treat...but ended up being a waste of £25! Sadly we will be going elsewhere in future despite living locally and always trying to ‘shop local’.More

Staying local for 3 days break and had a takeaway one night from here. We had a sweetcorn soup and a tofu Kung Po for me. The soup was really nice and tasty. Hubby had the sweetcorn soup with chicken and a chicken with blackbean...sauce and cashews. We went down to order and collect and it was a nice easy process.More

Place was extremely busy , nothing new with it being Saturday night . Food was very...hot and tasted amazing . We even got disposable forks so we could eat it in the car . Bonus. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go again when we are passing .More

Stopped in here by accident on the way home after a drive. Restaurant was quiet, however the take away and delivery side was really busy. Staff were amazing, food was piping hot and there was lots of it. Not sure why there are bad reviews...as our experience was fantastic. Would recommend and will be back.More

I hate giving bad reviews but I really have to here. My friend recommended this place but only ever gets the same thing so she didn't really have much ho go on. I ordered spare ribs and a beef curry to take away, both were...really poor quality and ended up in the bin. The ribs were so over cooked that they weren't even on the bone anymore, all shrivelled up and chewy The beef curry was all thin sloppy sauce and the beef was again over cooked and chewy. I'm sorry but 8 will not be back. The gigl who served us was lovely though xxMore
