“At its best bland, at its worst indelible”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Since moving to Bristol 10 years ago I have tried in vain to find a decent Chinese. Chim continues my experience of bland, tasteless food bringing a degree of shame on what can be wonderful cuisine.

The duck was dry and there was no attempt to hide that the pancakes were microwaved in plastic bags - they were still in the bags.

Most of the food was bland but the ribs came in a sauce that was just so disgusting the ribs had to be abandoned.

The staff were pleasant but beyond that it really was a terrible experience.

“Below average Chinese takeaway”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

We've had two takeaways from here in the past 3 years, both times very disappointing, lack lustre flavourings & poor quality meat / sea food.

“Excellent food reasonably priced”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We have been using this takeaway for 20 years and have never been disappointed. Booking by phone is straightforward, the service prompt and courteous and the food delicious, generous and reasonably priced. They are by far our favourite Bristol takeaway.

“One of the best takeaways in the area”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I have been using Chim's since it opened many years ago. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Portions are more generous than other takeaways and the plastic containers can be reused in the microwave. Apart from the usual dishes there are also Roast Duck, Pak Choi, Mandarin, Szechuan, Seaspice, Tom Yam and Squid dishes. If you order a meal for two you may well get free prawn crackers added. I always do. Open from 5 pm and also Thursday to Saturday afternoons.
