This was the worst ever Chinese meal my wife and I have ever had and would advise anyone thinking of using this takeaway to avoid at all cost.

When I picked up the menu the place seemed busy; unfortunately I have no idea why. Special chow mein.... Meat was extremely dry and noodles mushy. Roast Szechuan Pork resembled an Irish stew tinged with grey in the sauce for some unknown reason. Clearly both dishes reheated or so it seemed; very disappointed and will not be returning.

We have just arrived home with a takeaway from this ' restaurant ' and managed to eat two mouthfulls before deciding to bin it . I would not even expect the dog to eat it. Sweet and sour pork was rock hard and tough with burnt batter. Curry was laden with cornflour and artificial flavourings. Chips may have been left over from yesterday and fried rice was soggy. The only plus side is that they readily agreed to refund so I can only assume that they realise how bad the food is.

Spent £40 on the most disappointing takeaway ever!

Sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style was indelible. Prawn toasts were burnt. Roast duck was burnt. Singapore noodles had no flavour. Chicken balls were soggy.

Do yourself a favour, and spend your hard earned cash elsewhere! Will never use this place again.
