Has the owner not noticed the lack of Chinese eating here?!? OR is it my imagination? Food is inconsistent, portions appear to have reduced - this place used to be my mainstay living a busy life, not any more! Shame, I am sure he will pull his socks up and get this place in order again.

Bustling and busy and cash only. Great selection of one plate meals and their Chinese roasted meats are very good indeed. Use China China a lot and it remains consistently good at what it does.

Been going there for years and love it. Noddles in soup with duck and veggies is my absolute favourite. Great for lunch and dinner.

I love this place and go regularly. Big portions, low price and family friendly service. The menu is huge, so go once a week! Be aware it is busy and no frills. Also it is staff only on Tuesdays.

Good value but a quick meal in and out not for the traveller that wants a night out for dinner. Fast good food at a very good price but seems to cater for students or a quick bite on you way out to somewhere else

Have been here before and enjoyed my meals. Last Wednesday was disappointing. I had King Prawn noodles which consisted of noodles, king prawn and soy sauce. No other vegetables, seasoning or herbs. The result a bland boring dish without any flavour. Well, sone China China! I won't be coming back!

After it's closure, China China is back just the same as before. It's not gourmet food, it's not banquet food, but it's good tasting, reasonable quality and, although more expensive than before, it's still very good value. My family loves it. Try the mixed meats with garlic fried rice - delicious.

I used to eat in this place quite often as have friends who love it. Every time though I had a serious MSG reaction. You get what you pay for ... It is relatively cheap, and the reason for that is poor quality ingredients but more importantly the fact that the reason they were shut recently was because they were... More
