“Twice bitten”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Ordered takeaway from here two weeks running, gave them benefit of doubt the first time when food arrived cold after over an hour's wait!

Rang and cancelled order second time after waiting almost an hour and a half without delivery!

Food we had was ok but service on takeaway is amongst the worst I've experienced.

“Totally disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2010

Having read the previous review I expected to have at least an average meal delivered. I ordered the shredded beef with chilli, onion and basil. It tasted very odd and was swimming in a murky brown sauce with veg that looked overcooked / past their best - sufficed to say I didn't eat more than a spoonful. The sesame prawn toast was greasy and bitter to the taste. The egg fried rice was passable. Overall, it was a complete waste of £12 and made me wish I bought a ready meal from the supermarket instead.

Now sad and still hungry!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2009

Been here three times now. The place is really a takeaway with a bit of a restaurant out front. Place looks a little grubby from the outside and fairly grubby inside but don't be put off by it. Several groups walked in had a look and walked out again but they all missed a bit of a gem. this place gets lots of locals in. More importantly, it gets a lot of chinese people in. Food is plentiful and very tasty, very well priced and served with an unpretentious smile.
Shut your eyes to the decor and give it a go. You will return again.

“Tasty.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2009

I ordered some home delivery from the Chinese King. I had crispy spring rolls, wanton soup, shredded beef with fresh chilli, onion and basil leaf, sweet and sour bean curd, and some boiled rice. The food arrived on time. It was still hot, and my order came with some complimentary mini spring rolls (I think because I ordered around £15 worth of food.)

I enjoyed the meal. It was tasty. The dishes weren't spectacular, but they were enjoyable enough. I would probably order from this restaurant again.
