“Always excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

The food is really good, we tend to go for the buffet because you get great choice on the menu. Try the shredded chicken, its fantastic. Depending on who you get served by your evening can go either way and if they are busy you might have to wait for your food but see it as a good thing because your previous course can go down. Drinks are kind of expensive but the food is well priced. Not tried take away so cannot comment.

“Good restaurant with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Two of us went to the water margin recently, we called Friday evening and managed to get a table for two within just five minutes of calling. We went with one of the set menus and the food was really good. The service by the staff was also faultless. The only slight downside was we ordered a beer and wine for drinks. Beer is always good, but the wine came in a very small glass. I will definitely be going back.

“A nice Chinese restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Always good service, particularly from the owner. Their special lunch menus and takeaway meals are very good value, the evening menu being a little on the expensive side. Wine choice, quality and value needs to be a little better.

“Take away - No No..!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

I can't comment on the restaurant, but I can certainly comment on how poor the take away service is.. I called and was told 30 minutes, fair enough, but to get there and wait another 30 minutes. No...
I left without my meal or an apology... Shocking service.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Visited last Monday and early doors with just two people dining they asked if we had booked!! When we tried to getting the attention from the miserable staff to secure a table it proved quite a task as they were more interested in sorting out the mix up with a takeaway customer and were totally disinterested in us. The place was cold and I sat in my coat for the whole of the meal. Water is 60p a glass and thats tapwater....... considering the amount there is about out there at the moment it seemed a bit steep. Food was ok nothing special. They cant seem to itemise your bill either you just get a price for booze and food and you cant work out what you have had. Wont be rushing back on a cold winters evening.
