Came here at the start of April after reading all the good reviews very disappointed the food wasn't great we ordered 2 fried rice at around £3.80 each for it to come In a bowl with not enough rice for a single portion to share, the cutlery was dirty but they did apologise and replace straight away all in all...

I would be amazed if this is not the best Chinese food in Northampton as its one of the best I've had. I am a Northampton exile and used to come here many years ago when it was the Miramar. Now its even better, superb food and very nice, friendly staff. Had the fixed meal for 2 and outstanding in... More

Tasty food. Caremalised Beef, 1/4 duck wrap, and salt & pepper Squid to start - very, very good. Sechuan soup - spicy liquid laced with corn starch, disappointing. Taiwan Vermicelli and Singapore Vermicelli for mains - nice nice nice. But... everything was served on cold plates, something of a hot food spoiler right there, and it's pretty high end, price...

We have eaten here a few times, and in our opinion, it serves the nicest chinese food in Northampton. However, they really need to smarten the place up... it looks like a disused office from the 1980's (those ceiling tiles in particular), and made worse by grey, grubby walls. Partitions that used to exist in the past have gone, making... More

Our first visit, following recommendation from friends. Took the fixed price menu and everything was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was good. Steak dish was one of the best Chinese dishes I have tasted and my wife and I argued over the last piece. So tender we cut the last piece with a spoon and shared... More

I ate here for the first time with a party of friends tonight and I can confidently predict that I will be back. We decided on the three course banquet menu at 24.50 each - as a larger group we qualified for some additional dishes - and without exception the food was delicious. The service was relaxed and friendly but... More

The Felix Yu caters well for vegetarians as well as carnivores. The chili garlic green beans or aubergine are excellent and there is a very clever alternative to the usual crispy duck course using shredded fried tofu. My partner says he enjoys sharing this alternative as much as having duck! The heating in the restaurant can take a while to... More

The caramelised beef starter, and salt and peppered squid to start were superb! I did feel the portion sizes for the main courses a little on the small side, considering the inflated price, however these too we beautifully cooked. A complaint about the arrival of cold rice saw that particular misgiving remedied with immediate effect, and quickly enough for us... More

I cannot believe I got charged £3 for a portion of boiled rice. The two portions that we ordered to share between the two of us cost £6 but I didn't have enough. I asked for some more but was told I have to pay for an extra portion! I felt pretty ripped off! Apart from that the wasabi prawns,... More
