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.

Awful, had a delivery, and I understand that it’s a restaurant and a takeaway/delivery, but delivering your food in half a cal board box with all your dishes half peeled open then, yeah your food is going to be cold! The chicken chow mein was...awful, chicken was slimy and just tasted like chicken stock. The salt and pepper chicken balls are not like the chicken balls you would normally order, more like small pieces of chicken and very little of them! Duck was lovely but when you’ve got to to take it off the bone and sort the rest of your dish out, it is by far from crispy by then. There was no dipping sauce for the dumplings. Honestly the worst Chinese I have had by far, and for what you pay for what you get is a joke! The prawn crackers where the best part of the meal 🙄More

The best Chinese takeaway in Congleton in our opinion. We had four different dishes, all were great and Cathy the owner really looked after us with respect that two of us are gluten free. We had a takeaway this time but have eaten in previously...as well. Can highly recommend.More

Forum is a nicely decorated Chinese restaurant with a car park. We ate as a family of 6, the table was round with a lazy Susan in the middle which was useful. We had a sharing dish to start and all was delicious. Quite a...wait before the main courses came out but all were equally nice, one dish was requested without soy sauce and this was no problem showing that the food is made to order. A few of the table wanted a coffee at the end but due to the length of time waiting after the plates were cleared they didn’t bother. It was a Wednesday evening so maybe short staffed but not too busy so the slow service was the only downside.More

First time here and will be back. As Fortune City HC is closed, we ventured over and were not disappointed. Very friendly service, most tables featured 'lazy susans' which add to the experience. Quality, tasty, hot and authentic tasting food. GF aware also. Excellent visit.

Not been for a while , menu quite reduced but enough choices. Our food was very nice and piping hot. The servers were attentive. The owner told us its closing for around 6weeks . Their staff are going back to China, as they've not been...home for 4 years plus other personal reasons. We will definitely be visiting again shortly.More

I’ve been looking at some of the hilarious reviews on here from people who have supposedly been here. Absolutely ridiculous! I’ve been coming here for 30 years and I’ve never had a bad meal. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection. Staff are friendly...and frankly THE best Chinese I’ve been to. Highly highly recommended to anyone who wants a nice quality night out. Cheapskates stick to a greasy takeaway.More
