“Delivery? a slow boat to China is quicker!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

The food I must say has always been good, when you get it! I write my review on the delivery, I had experienced in the past a few LONG delivery times, but tonight passed extreme. Ok its a Saturday night so I phone at 5.30p.m. and I am told food delivered within the hour, ok so I make that food delivered by 6.30 p.m??? 6.45 pm still no food, so I ring and ring and get told its on its way and will be delivered any min, ok live 5 min drive from take-a-way, yes ok I understand they have other deliveries, but 7.30 P.M still no food, and ring again, just as there is a knock on the door! sent him packing as the attitude stank, I mean 2 hours for a take-a-way! I would like to say the delivery was a one off, but am afraid it isn't, it has happened before, if it wasn't for the fact the food is good I wouldn't bother, and why bother with the delivery, cos its a Saturday night, and like most you work hard and want a drink at the end of the week along with a treat, so if you want your Saturday night treat to be an Upton take a way, GO FOR IT YOUR SELF, or don't bother!

“Not bad at all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

Got a delivery while staying at a friend's. Ordered quite a bit and turned up on time (even if the car was full to the brim with kids!) Hot tasty and would defo use again. All the people moaning about this place need a slap. The food was excellent and totally enjoyed it. Good work keep it up :-)
