Malvern has very few Chinese restaurants, and we have been meaning to go here for some time. During the week food is served in the bar area. This was a minor issue as the staff/owners are very courteous and friendly. And it wasn't that big a deal unless this matters to you.
Prices are OK. Extensive menu. However, I'm convinced the food [very good king prawn curry and vegetarian chicken black pepper] contained Monosodium Glutamate [MSG]. I had a slight headache this morning, and drank a lot of water in the night. If you like this, or are used to it, fine, carry on. I haven't consumed it for years. This isn't the place to have a debate, check MSG out on the internet. I suspect, given the good reviews, the weekend experience is excellent.

I have tried them all in Malvern and the Star is miles ahead when it comes to the quality of the food, you do pay a little extra and it’s worth it.

The bar is a relaxed pleasant area where you can have a drink whilst waiting for your take away, the Beer is top quality and so is the service. 9 times out of ten we have a take-away if we eat at the restaurant we request to have the food in the bar area.

I do have a problem with the star which is the main restaurant, its lacks atmosphere and is not a pleasing environment to eat in which is such a shame because it lets down the food and service. The enormous water feature at the back of the restaurant is irritating and distracting too.

If the restaurant was modernised it would be Five Stars

Visited for the first time last week.
Great choice of real ales and a smart comfortable bar.
Had a meal in the resturant very Good chinese Food but the service was a bit slow if this was sorted would be 5 star review.
Will visit again for beer and bar may even give the resturant another go.
