We did enjoy the meal – crispy duck was good, if a bit mean on the accompaniments – cucumber/spring onion and pancakes, but they did provide iceberg lettuce leaves as a replacement for pancakes for the lovely L, coeliac sufferer … I've now decided that I prefer the lettuce option! We ordered one chicken dish (sweet and sour), one beef dish (black bean) and one prawn dish (spring onion and ginger) – all were ‘OK’ but quite unremarkable; egg fried rice and a small portion of crispy 'seaweed' were also OK – but then so is the stuff we get from the local take-away. Nice bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, 2 coffees and a jasmine tea – just over 80 quid the lot. We've had better for a lot less, we've also had a lot worse.

First visit to new local Chinese as we have just moved here. Food and service good. Don't rate out as expensive as recent reviews indicate. Will be back

Years ago we used to eat in the Golden Willow three or four times a month but stopped after noticing too many errors on our bill - the larger our group the more additional items added in error no doubt!

We recently returned and have had a few take-aways.Some have been good however we have also had the wrong items in our order and some of the food quality was extremely poor.

Overall I can't help but feel that the decor,service and food at Golden Willow reminds me of what we used to put up with in the 1980's.On the other hand the prices have been updated - In my view far too expensive for the quality.

Despite having been to this restaurant on a number of occasions over several years (and enjoy it each time), we hadn't been to the Sunday buffet until this visit.

We were all very impressed - the food (3 courses with multiple selections for each) were cooked fresh and delivered to the table, and there was no issue in ordering more (it is a buffet after all). It was very tasty and high quality (often a rarity I find with chinese food).

The staff were very friendly but not over-attentive so we could enjoy the family meal without being interupted all the time.

We will definitely be going back for teh Sunday buffet again - at £14.90 (i think) it's also very good value
