“The Pricing Is Illegal”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The website shows £24.00 for a meal for 4 people having called and spoke to a member of staff Nancy whom was most unhelpful. it transpires that in fact the information is incorrect and they would not honour the price which they quite cleary state..Very sad as i have eaten quite a few times here.Reporting the matter to trading standards.

“ORDER FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

I have ordered from here for myself and thought the food was ok. This time around me and the family decided to give this place another go and i tried something different. Our order was special fried rice, chicken fried rice, crispy chilli beef, crab claws, soft noodles and chips. Firstlly they sent us chicken chow mein instead of chicken fried rice and its the only thing my misses will eat from a chinese. She had to wait an extra 45mins for them to bring us the chicken fried rice so as you can guess my wife wasnt impressed! The special fried rice was bland and had no taste whatso ever. The crispy chilli beef was ok, the chips were ok, the soft noodles were ok, the crab claws were so dry n tasted awful, they were very bad! And the belated chicken fried rice was also bland. Overall pretty poor food and service.

“Twice bitten”
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”
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!
