“indifferent really”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

It's a Saturday night it's a treat and we are at the Colony. Where to start, Food it was ok you wouldn't write home about it, it is no more special than any other Chinese restaurant in Farnham, none of them are "special" when it's comes to taste, appearance. Drink same no more to say really. Service one in a waitress outfit one in pullover covering takeaway, nothing special. Cleanliness -the last time I went to a toilet like that was in a factory unit and with this in mind surprised the place was open, enough said. Right as a summary, a below average place in decline surviving on takeaways and fill your boots food and cleanliness is not a priority.

“Its good value in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

This is basic Chinese food at good prices and staff who will go the extra mille for you. At £12.90 for " all you can eat " the decision is simple. If you want to stay late , they accommodate you. Just booked 20 people for a xmas night out . No one will be complaining..

“SO much food - great value too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

I go to this restaurant a lot because of its delicious set menu options. The food is always good, there's generally a nice atmosphere, and we always leave feeling FULL! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone living in Farnham or close by!

“Expensive and inauthentic Euro-style Chinese food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

This restaurant serves expensive food in rather mean portions to the extent that we left feeling hungry and, at these prices, cheated. Perhaps the most disappointing aspect was that the food was pretty bog standard boring Europeanised style "Chinese" that you can get practically anywhere else at a much lower price - even, say, in your local Waitrose.
