A fine Chinese restaurant

The service is attentive yet unobtrusive. Portions are small but very tasty and not too spicy for western tastes. We had one of the set menus which included crispy duck pancake rolls, assorted starters and a lovely Kung pau chicken among others. Thoroughly recommended

I will not go anywhere else for Chinese - food always perfect! Tried take away last week and was not disapointed. We tend to go on buffet days with friends.

This place has good reviews and whilst the service was fine the food was very ordinary; gloopy sweet n sour and a very tame beef dish. Meat looks processed. On the plus side, the pak choi with garlic was excellent. Can't see me paying another visit.

Have been here twice now and not enjoyed either visit. Overpriced and rude staff. The first time I thought was a one off so gave it another go and if anything was worse.

Having only ate in once or twice, being very local, but had a few take aways, I has to be said the food is top notch, but somewhat sadly let down with the impassive staff, I do not expect bell n whistles but just a bit of a friendly and genuine attitude goes a long way. But as I have... More

I'm surprised by some of the negative experiences people have shared about Keis and felt moved to redress the balance. My wife and I have been going to Keis for around 12 years, most often for the excellent value Sunday "all you can eat" taster menu. I'm not sure what the "group" experience is like but as a couple, the... More

Excellent local Chinese restaurant, we have eaten there for years, and people seem to travel some distance to eat there. Great food and friendly staff, if you haven't tried it yet it is well worth the visit.

We have been to Kei's before. We used to go quite often, but the standard seemed to drop and it was a while before we went again - now it is as it once was - excellent service, friendly staff, and good food! We went on Sunday evening for the special menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. We don't go out... More

We went to Kei's to celebrate an 89th birthday for a family member, there was a party of 10 of us. Upon arrival, we were shown to our table which was located right next to the bar area where most of the staff worked from. Once all members of the party where there, we had our ordered taken, 7 went... More

We had our first meal here last night and will definitely be returning. I don't typically enjoy Chinese food as there is normally a tendency to overload with salt and oil. However Kei's is an example of what Chinese food should be; fresh tasting, well balanced and perfectly portioned. The staff were attentive and welcoming. We had to phone and... More
