“really nice place with good atmosphere and cheap food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

I use to go to here years ago before moving away. took my dad at the weekend and we had a great time. the atmosphere is really nice, you're not crowded next to other peoples tables. food is quite cheap and is nice. service is very friendly, but be prepared to wait a little while really busy, that's not a problem if you're with good company though. overall well worth a visit.

“Surprisingly good cuisine and service for a suburban Chinese eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

The restaurant, an easy walk from the Cockfosters tube station, would fall under the category of a typical high street Chinese eatery so common in London and the surrounds. However, on entering the premises one realizes that it is a bit more sophisticated than the normal. The décor is warm and not too overpowering. The range of food is adequate with the more common Chinese soups, appetizers and mains on the menu. The service is timely, and the servings rather larger than the usual, which is good when eating out in company. Most items ordered were of good quality. The serving staff seemed to be mostly students (part time workers) but is efficient and polite. Overall, dining out at the Sweet Cheery turned to be a pleasant experience, and not hard on the hip pocket either.

“Very Good Sunday Lunchtime Chinese Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2010

I have been to the Sweet Cherry a number of times, and it deserves a Review, the restaurant is spotlessly clean, tables with very white table cloths, comfortable seating in all areas, and clean bright toilets.

I was there with a friend on Sunday 7th February 2010 at midday, when the doors are open, at his suggestion. Very near to Cockfosters underground tube station, carparking was no problem at all.

I listed all the dishes, as at the time of writing:

Bbq spare ribs.
Chicken curry.
Chicken chop suey.
Chicken mixed vegetables.
Chow mein.
Deep fried wanton.
Egg fried rice
Lemon chicken.
Mushroom omelette.
Satay chicken plain.
Sesame seed prawn on toast.
Singapoore noodles.
Special fried rice.
Sweet & sour pork.
Szechuan style roast pork.
Vegetarian spring rolls.

Excellant value at the time of writing for £6.80, drinks and desserts are at extra cost, I had toffee apples, big portion, very good, also a selection of quality ice cream available.
Friendly staff, the restaurant gets very busy, would suggest to make a reservation, and arrive at midday on the Sunday at doors open. No queue at the buffet, but the dishes go quickly and takes a little time to replenish.

Well worth the visit, to relax and enjoy, you are not rushed to leave, and not be disappointed.

Have a look at the evening dinner menus, also good.
