The closest thing to 'Chinese' about this restaurant is the Oriental staff, who's lack of English is more irritating than quaint. The food is very much Western interpretation of Oriental cooking, down to 'main courses' being a choice of meat, and then a choice of sauce for it! No genuine Chinese dishes on the menu! Okay for philistines who have... More

Telephoned the restaurant for a delivery for two on a Monday evening. Easy to order and paid for it with a card. Delivery is free, and much easier than trying to park near the restaurant to pick it up. Was told that it would be about 45 min, but the food was delivered in 30 mins. We have had a... More

My Take-away of choice. Best 'smoked shredded chicken' I have ever had. The Lunch Box they do is also great (unfortunately the price has been creeping up). The veggie duck is also rather good. Yep, veggie duck, pancake roles, etc.

If you book a day ahead you buy one & get one meal half price! Great when there's four of you!!! I usually love their food but their chicken Satay was very salty! I was disappointed to be stopped when ordering starters to be told I had already ordered 10. I only wanted one of everything for my group who... More

This is a nice little Chinese restaurant with nice food a good service. The staff here are attentive. Service can be slow at times but at least you know your food is cooked properly. This is the best Chinese in Shirley to eat in.

Maybe reading previous reviews my expectations had been raised but I thought this restaurant was decidedly average. Early evening weekday dining meant it was hardly packed nonetheless the wait between courses was unacceptably long. When it did arrive the food was tasty enough although the portions were somewhat meagre. Not a bad experience dining here but I shall be trying... More

Been here lots of times over the years for family Birthdays & special occasions, always served good food, staff always friendly. The duck pancakes are scrumpy.

Kachina had always been an amazing place to come. This time round though they let themselves down badly. The food was nice (when it came) but the order was wrong, we waited for a long period of time to which point they had given our order to a completely different table. They were apologetic which is a plus but that's... More

We often have a takeaway from Kachina and stick to our favourites and have rarely had a bad meal. For a change we went to the restaurant on a Friday night whim. We were surprised at how quiet it was considering it was a Friday night, but it meant the service was quick and the food hot. We had the... More
