Was recommended to come by some friends and could not believe the improvement from china house to the eastern. The service was excellent, the food was just as good and dessert was just the icing on the cake. HIGHLY recommend it!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Wow! The old China House Restaurant has certainly had a makeover in more ways than one. Not only has the old 1970's decor been replaced with a bright contemporary look, but the food and service has also improved. Considering they are offering a number of different types of Oriental food, there's always a risk of not getting it right, that's not the case here. Visited with friends for Sunday lunch. This is an 'eat as much as you like' deal, but not in a buffet style, everything is freshly cooked to order. We tried an array of dishes, I couldn't fault any of the them, but the Thai green curry and chicken rendang were standout dishes. We weren't rushed at any point, service was very good and we were offered more food when we ran out! An absolute steal at £12.95 a head. Can't wait to go back

Food is great!

The Resturant has a lovely clean refreshing feel!
