Reviewed 27 August 2014

We ordered a Chinese takeaway on a Wednesday night from Crystal Lake. It turned up about an hour and 10 minutes later (we were told about 45 minutes to deliver), and after chasing, it turned up tepid, which is not what you want after waiting for your dinner. Half of the food was warm so we had to heat up in our own oven and the chicken satay sticks were pink inside.
We've used Crystal Lake for years but have been really disappointed over the last 6 months and probably won't use them again. When we called to complain, we were offered credit but not even sure we will want to use this.

The staff were friendly but the food was very poor. One dish crispy beef was tasty but chicken chow mien was burnt and so was the squid Won't go again

This used to be a good Chinese a few years ago, but the same food keeps changing flavour now, it's appears bland and greasy. Also had countless times when food that arrives is not what I ordered. Sadly gone elsewhere now.
