“Fantastic, best Chinese we have had in years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We are foodies and have been searching for a great Chinese, we were staying with friends and bought a £100 takeaway for 6 of us (3 hungry couples) one Friday night and it was good and plentiful we had a £30 top up order the next night as we had a few dishes left over from the day before. We all commented on how great it was.
I
The portions were good, food was really great, tasty and super fresh.Lots of veg in all the dishes we all commented on how good the beef in black bean was as it was so tender and tasty it was like steak.
The crispy duck came stripped which was great so we could all just dive in.
House special rice was the nicest I have ever had, fresh fluffy and not greasy.
All the spicy dishes were a perfect level of spicy, we are spice lovers and the medium and hot dishes were true to form which we appreciated as usually they aren't quite spicy enough.
The delivery was on time and the guy was very friendly I can't recommend it enough and must admit I am really surprised at the negative reviews.It was awesome and I can't wait to go back to our friends for the next one.

“Best Asian food in East Kent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

It is not the cheapest food but it is quality. Service is a little bit 'wacky' but it is always attentive. They do not use MSG when cooking. Crispy duck is a favourite - always come well prepared. Only comment is that 8 pancakes is not enough (you have to pay 35p for each extra pancake) - they would be better off giving 12 pancakes (even if they increase the price of the dish)! We eat here with our children (early) or later with friends.

“Great evening at Kudos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Kudos in Canterbury may not be the cheapest Chinese meal you have ever had, but for us, the good service and tasty food, is well worth the extra money.
We were greeted warmly upon our arrival, offered the choice of going straight to our table, or having a drink in the comfortable seating area, we chose a drink, whilst looking at the menu. Our order was taken and upon finishing our drinks, we were shown to our table. We ordered a variety of dishes between the four of us during the meal, and no one was disappointed with their choice. What was nice was just the right break in between courses, not too long and not too rushed, all in all a wonderful evening. Looking forward to a return visit.
