We've eaten at The Bird's Nest many times, both take away and eat in. Whilst in our opinion the atmosphere there could be a little more traditional and adventurous, we've never been disappointed. The food always tastes fresh and tasty and the staff are always lovely. Highly recommended.

After finding this Chinese on trip advisor, decided to give it a go. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Staff happy to please. Food was pleasant but had tastier. Not as hot as could have been but couldn't fault the timeliness of orders. For four of us had 5 drinks, 3 starters and 3 mains and it came to approx £45.

Just had a very reasonable Chinese meal here, three adults three children...went for set meal which we were able to alter to what suited us best.

We were impressed with how busy it was with a steady stream of take away orders...

The food was good quality...not the best I've ever had but good sized portions, well cooked and tasty.

The service was a little slow and we found ourselves staring at empty plates for around 20 mins between courses.....the staff however were very pleasant and friendly....just needed either a bit more manpower or a little more urgency.....

Having been in the evening and enjoyed the food, we came at lunchtime this time. 2 course meal for less than the cost of a main course elsewhere, so we thought small portions will be served. However, we were wrong! Delicious prawn crackers and crispy pancakes for starters, followed by a full-sized portion of spicy beef (the best we've ever tasted) and chicken and cashews with tasty egg-rice (not greasy) and plain rice. Pleasant service too. We'll be back!!!

We have enjoyed meals here before. This time we had to consider the needs of a coeliac diet. I rang in advance to see if this would be feasible and the staff could not have been more helpful. They told us to avoid pancakes, but that anything else on the menu would be OK, but to let the waitress know when we ordered, so that our food could be cooked separately and without soy sauce. We shared all the dishes which included gluten free batter, sauces and crackers, things that coeliacs normally have to avoid. The food was tasty, hot and fresh. Everything was well presented. The service was friendly and efficient.There was no fuss, no mistakes and it was a really nice and "normal" evening. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to other people who require a gluten free diet.
