“Not bad! Not good!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Been a while since I been here and I remember it was fair. Small and hot place and claustrophobic. They serve orange squash for adults and kids which goes down well,and is a bit cheaper. I have not really had a brilliant meal here but it is not the worst either. Portions not very big. Curry nice but average.
Would not write it off.

“When it's good it's superb, can be a little hit & miss!”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Going to this place for years and it's always the best Chinese food (especially the curry) in town.. On a good day!
When they get things right this place has no equal but sometimes, just sometimes things seem to go ary!
It's so infuriating, because it's handy with great parking and central to the town. It has a massive following and is always very busy. This too can cause some issues. Take out times are very long. From phone in to walk out can be 45 minutes plus and it seems anyway that they don't start your order until you actually walk in the door.
Sit in is great, a little cramped and the main route to the kitchen for the takeaway orders, of which there are plenty, is right down the middle of the floor, between the tables which are about 6 ft apart and is very off putting, as can be the constantly full waiting area which is only feet away.
Surroundings aside, if you're there only for the food, it's delicious (most of the time) and the staff are friendly, attentive and courteous.
If you're unlucky to get them on a bad night, the food can suffer from loss of freshness and flavour.
A shame really as even though it's good value for money, the one thing that should be a constant in any eatery is the quality of the food.
