this place is meant to be so good and people rave about it.....
well I can honestly say I those people must need there heads testing...
the staff were very amateur didn't know how to look after you. let alone talk to you...
we ordered our drinks, one being a bottle of rose it was just placed on the table and left no ice bucket or cooler to put it in....
the starts came out and literally just plonked down in the centre of the table....we had the mixed starter wasn't too bad but have had better...
was surprised that we were given plates and not bowls, and not a chopstick in sight!!!
the main meal came out and well very bland not much flavour and too be honest not much of it....
did have a nice coconut ice cream for desert but then this is brought in anyway..
we also managed to get a liquor on the house...
would I recommend no, would I go again no...
differently had better...

There was a time when you couldn't get into Hons, would be booked solid, so imagine my surprise when I booked and got a table. However the restaurant was nearly empty when we got there. Should have seen that as a sign!
There was only one waitress but the service was poor. We'd ask for things then it wouldn't turn up for 10 mins or so. We were there for 2 hours and only asked if we wanted drinks once.
The food was disgusting, we left most of it. The only thing we managed was the rice.
I remember coming here and the food being of such a high quality.
Unless I hear that this has improved I won't be coming again. What's happening to all the local restaurants!!

Recently visited Hons with a party of Five, not being such a fan of Chinese food it was of a very good standard, miles better than a take away version. There was a big menu with a good variety of dishes. My favorite was the crispy aromatic duck which was exceptional. The staff are friendly and it is not as expensive as everyone seems to think. Would recommend.

I have been going to Hons over the years, after my recent visit it will sadly be my last. I was expecting slow service but this was not the case. The waiters/waitresses were great. The table was badly laid, and the food very bland. They brought the wrong dish for my partner, at that point it was so busy we decided to just get on with it. I had sizzling steak, only four pieces of meat in the dish. I don't mind paying expensive prices for food but found it to be very poor value here. Wont go back.
