We originally went into this restaurant for the 'all you can eat' option only to be told that it wasn't available on an evening- something not mentioned outside. However we stayed and had a decent albeit more expensive meal than originally planned

Waited an hour for food and when it came if I we hadn't been hungry we would have left it all.
garlic beef looked over cooked and it was shrivelled up with whole un- cooked cloves of garlic, and virtually raw large chuncks of peppers,watery soy sauce, the duck/lemon had what looked liked half a tin of canned pineapple which was so sweet it killed the dish, very meger portions, not that we could eat it all anyway. Without doubt the worst food I have ever tasted

It has taken me a few days to think about how I can review this apology of a restaurant.A group of nine of us had a family meal at the China Rose last Friday.We have not recovered from the experience yet!I seriously don't know where to start reviewing this joke of a restaurant.The poor young girl who we have read of in earlier reviews has obviously left and her replacement -a young guy was doing his first shift with no help whatsoever to start with and quite obviously no training !We stupidly asked for red wine only to be told they had none.As another table was having the same problem he said he would look around out the back and see if e could find a bottle .ordering food was a complete nightmare,by the time it came our parking had expired but we had managed to meet the Chinese diva herself -Mrs Fawlty who shouts at you at 100 miles an hour so no one understands !All food cold ,whole duck with 24 pancakes dried up and on massive mound of cabbage (concealed)-we managed about 10-12 skinny pancakes-no way was it a whole duck !rest of food horrid -have never had so bad !We were in stitches for most of the time -table wasn't laid for all of us so father in law asked for some napkins -the guy dumped them on his plate and told him to pass them round ! This happened with glasses ,plates and cutlery !I could go on for hours but you are probably bored by now and have got the picture !Do not go here EVER!By the way -we paid as Mrs Fawlty was long gone and had left young lurch to deal with everything!On the upside we didn't stop talking about it all week end !!!

I went there with some friends and it was like Basil Fawlty himself ran the place. The food was ok if you want your noodles, first your rice 2o minutes later and you chicken half an hour after that while your friend watches you eat it while still waiting for his food.

The waitress was pleasant and friendly and I felt sorry for her .The chef can cook, just not more than 1 thing at a time.

Gordan Ramsey could make a whole series on this place alone.

You've got to laugh or you'd cry, hilarious.
