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.

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

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

we enjoyed a meal here however I don't think the food is anything to rave about.... We used to go to Kachina regularly at lunch as the kids liked the food and the lunch menu was cheap... The evening meal we had (although discounted as there is a buy one get a second 1/2 price), was expensive as the drinks... More

We have used Katchina for years as our takeaway of choice because quality was always extremely reliable UNTIL last night. The whole order was terrible - everything had clearly been rushed and was not cooked thoroughly - Chicken in Ginger and Spring onion was undercooked - we threw it away before giving ourselves food poisoning - although my daughter had...

Well catered for. Large table of 12. Good service, not slow or too rushed. Great staff, very friendly and attentive. Food outstanding. Delicious.

We tried Kachina again after we noticed a change of management and were pleasently surprised. The food was delicious (ribs fell off the bone cleanly and chicken was succulent). The starter combo's were piping hot and cooked to order. We gobbled so much we didn't have room for a main. This place is definitely back on our menu. We booked... More

I've been here many times for the evening buffet and never been disappointed, but tried the lunchtime buffet for £8.50 per head. There's a good choice of all-you-can eat starters, but what was brought to the table wasn't what we'd ordered! We asked for the vegetarian samosas...the waitress didn't have a clue what we were asking for despite us pointing... More

Having heard great reviews of this place from friends and family finally got round to dining at Kachina, we were not disappointed either.... Food well cooked, hot and nicely presented!!!! Service spot on but not obtrusive. A great way to finish the weekend!!! ( more importantly these days value for money too!)
