If I could eat in at the San San I would, but as it's a take away and delivery service only I have to dine in my own surroundings.

Even at peak times, I've never waited more than 25 minutes for San San to deliver, and often it's under 15 mins. And that includes a 3 minute drive....The cooking starts as soon as you hang up the phone. I'd recommend their hot and sour soup, just delicious, Szecuhan beef and kung po beef also. For something absolutely not Chinese, try the spicy chips with salt and chilli.

Positives : Fast, hot, great menu variety including Thai dishes.
Negatives : parking is terrible if you are collecting. Get it delivered, and TIP the driver as he's FAST!

Went here tonight after a fabulous day out on the beach at Hoylake - so we were both ravenous and hadn't eaten as thought we were going to be enjoying a real feast.

To be fair when we ordered at about 6.00pm, the service was good and the food was ready in good time. They were also really busy (which is normally a good sign), with lots of customers coming in along with telephone orders.

We chose spring rolls and crispy won ton for starters and duck in plum sauce and fillet steak with with Cantonese Sauce for mains and a banana fritter for dessert.

The spring rolls were tasteless and the won ton was one very small prawn hidden behind far too much deep fried (greasy) filo pastry. The fillet steak was over cooked and leathery and the duck was okay but a little under-done. The egg fried rice had virtually no egg in it and the noodles were greasy with a strange after-taste. The banana fritters were covered in a thick soggy batter and the bananas were soft and mushy.

As you can see from our previous reviews we try to look for the positives, but in this instance, the food was possibly the worst we have come across. It wasn't as hot as it could have been and it was also pricey for waht we had.

Our German Shepherd however, thought it was delicious - need we say more!

Over the last few years I have ordered for delivery countless times. San San are helpful, concistant and and above all else friendly, whether it be from the young, hepfull lady on the phone (that's how she sounds, always reassuring) to the especially chirpy guy who delivers (the boss I've been told). Everything is fantastic..... Absolutely LOVE this place

An absolute gem of a Chinese takeaway. From the lovely lady who takes our orders to the super fast delivery, fresh food and great choice I cannot fault the San San or recommend it highly enough, definitely the best in the area.

This is our Chinese takeaway of choice - the food is always really tasty and they are quick to prepare/deliver. Favourites are the sweet and sour pork balls and the beef in szechuan style sauce which has a real kick. Recommended!
