Maybe Hans Christian Andersen had the Slow Boat in mind when he wrote ‘The Emperor's New Clothes?’
We had been told that a good time to visit was on a Sunday to try their all day banquet. We arrived just before 6pm and it was getting busy to be fair. I have to admit that at this stage all was good and we were looking forward to the experience…..that was until we were seated and my wife and I’s arms were sticking to the ‘clean’ table. On further inspection this table was beyond cleaning and I think they need to A) Buy a table cloth, or B) Buy an orbital sander.
Did I tell you about the carpet that was also rather sticky? Yes, a carpet in a Chinese restaurant!!
Service was good if not a bit too much after the 4th “Can I take your drinks order?” The starters were on the measly side (2 small Vietnamese Spicy Meat Balls to share??) and the Thai Chicken Strips were as Thai as fish and chips, basically chicken without any flavour shaped like calamari!? The ribs were all excellent as were the chicken wings so some quality as least.
The mains came on plastic plates with a choice of rice or noodles, again served on plastic (at least our eating plates were porcelain!) The Honey & Chilli Beef was very tasty but my wife’s Chicken with Pineapple in Sweet Chilli Sauce was well below average. We tried 2 more dishes, Sweet and Sour Pork and Pork with Mushrooms in Black Bean Sauce and neither one salvaged the whole sorry experience.
If this was the last Chinese restaurant in Chester then I would book a cab and go out of the city. Not impressed and never again!
