“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

I've not visited this restaurant for over 20 years but did so after reading the reviews.
We were not disappointed as we found both the food and service to be excellent. Will not leave it so long next time.

“Best chinese with quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

The Paklok may not look much from the outside but inside it has character, the staff are so friendly and the food is outstanding quality. Try their sweet and sour chicken balls they are not greasy but taste like chicken should and not too much batter. Shame they don't do a home delivery I would have it 7 days a week. Their food has taste and quality. This restaurant has been established over 30 years and I consider the best in Harlow when it comes to chinese.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

We finally got around to trying here for the first time last night, following getting a couple of recommendations from friends and the great reviews on tripadvisor.
The location, is what it is, in the middle of a ageing shopping centre. But as soon as you walk thru the door, you are treated like an old friend, even if its your first visit. The menu is traditional British Chinese food, reasonably priced. But its when the food arrives, that you realise this place is a cut above. The portion size is generous and the food lovely, fresh and great tasting. We opted for a set meal, each of the courses were excellent. The service was friendly and thoughtful.
All in all, a great meal, definitely will be back

“Just the best Chinese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Just like the previous reviewer my family and i have been using this restaurant for over 30 years. We have always had good food,good service here. We have just come back after another tasty meal and thought it was about time we reviewed it. It's always been a favourite of ours and have never been disappointed. If you have not tried it then give it a go. I'm sure you will return just as we have many times

“Friendly and good food”

We have been eating at the Paklock since we were kids and always enjoy a good meal. Great atmosphere when it is busy and take away is just as good.
