Used to go here and it was always Ok but after my latest visit last week I think its gone down hill and my expectations have been raised by my visits to another Chinese in Stockton on tees. We arrived about 5.30 so paid the full £10.50 price and for what we managed to eat I think this was a... More

Not been here for a while and definately won't be coming back. I have been to plenty of cheap eateries but this one needs a wake up call in how to do it well. Even though more people arrived no fresh food was put out and what was there looked like it had been there since last night! In all... More

Food was very good, no complaints and very reasonably priced. Went down very well with children who could choose what they wanted and how much. Only complaint was that it was very cold in there.

I have been going there for years,and although the food is good the staff have completely no manners.I don't think they know the words please and thank you they seem to think they are doing you a favour just serving you. On the other hand the staff at the Banana Leaf just down the road are so hospitable.

Not impressed by the food. should have been hotter and there wasnt alot of choice. Staff stood around looking lost as there wasnt many customers-wonder why. Decor was okay but what really spoilt the look was a awful canteen table and chairs with table numbers cellotaped down with brown crusy edging. It should be warm and welcoming but it wasn't.

Food is pretty average, fine for a cheap meal, but that is all, but you can't really expect more from an all you can eat for £10, some food was a bit undercooked and curry tasted like a microwaved ready meal, atmosphere was pretty bland and the staff sort if congregated at the bar and watched people eat which was...

I was fancying a Chinese and this used to be a favourtie of ours but it has certainly gone down in all sorts of ways. The food was not very nice the seafood had some suspicious looking black bits in it. Some of the sauces were barely warm. Dirty plates were stacked with clean ones (obviously not washed enough). some... More
