“Not good”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Ordered a takeaway to be delivered via the on line booking form, we got an email confirmation of the order, we waited 1 hour 10 mins before ringing to ask where our delivery was. We were told they do not really use the website, although the website does NOT state that and the facility is fully available.
We were offered a 10% discount which we did not consider to be enough given that the delivery change was more than 10% so we ended up having very late fish and chips from a local shop where the service was superb.

“Quality Fast Food in Eastbourne”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

A takeaway with the facility to stay in and eat from a separate menu. Excellent value and friendly speedy service. Have eaten here a few time now and never been disappointed. Is a sister to the main sit down restaurant a couple of doors up road Mr Hau. Will have to try as see that this has also had good reviews.

So if looking for a no frill ,no fuss, good value and good food..this is definitely worth trying

“Great food, quick service, big portions”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Love this place. No frills, great food, good portions, very reasonably priced. Nothing bad to say about it really. Even let you take home your leftovers if you don't eat it all.

“Quick and good”

Friendly staff, I was very hungry and got fed very quickly (though the noodles arrived before the "starter" spring rolls). Happy to recommend for cheap and cheerful Asian

“Yet again very disappointing service”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

Tonight I placed an order via "Just eat" at 7pm for an 8.15pm delivery. At 8.45pm I telephoned to see where my order was, I was told that it had left the Restaurant and was on it's way to us. Fifteen minutes later I telephoned again as it still hadn't arrived, this time I was told that they had only just recieved the order and that they were unable to tell me when it would arrive.
We haven't used Mr Hau's Express for many months as on the last occasion our meal arrived over 2 hours late and was incorrect.
The attitude of the person on the telephone was not at all helpful. I was told that they were short of delivery drivers. DON'T TAKE ORDERS THAT YOU CAN'T HONOUR !!!! Pure greed !!! Needless to say we will not be using or recommending ever again.
