This is the second time we have visited the restaurant and food was delicious and all our party enjoyed their starter and main course, but the restaurant had not got a very good ambience as was too light and impersonal. The service and food were excellent though and we really liked the plate of orange segments brought after the meal... More

Certainly not the trendiest place to eat nowadays and the food isn't the cutting edge of modern chinese cuisine you sometimes read about but we love it! We've been going for over 20 years and I doubt we'll ever stop. We love using this place for big family/friends occasions as it's so spacious and the service is very attentive. It's... More

We decided to come here after looking on trip advisor. We really enjoyed our meal. We chose one of the set menus. As usual way too much food for 2 people so they packaged up the leftovers. The only downside of the night was the paper tablecloths covering the fabric ones. They became stained with grease and were very unpleasant... More

The meat sharing starter was just excellent especially the ribs. We chose the sizzling meat main courses whoch were all excellent. We did send one meal back which was burnt but the staff handled it excellently and brought is another. I loved the Chinese beer All said a great place to eat

It is almost 20 years since my last visit, but this is still the best Chinese restaurant in town. The set meal for 4 including starters, aromatic crispy duck and main courses cannot be beaten for quality, value and portion size. It's a good job they do doggy bags! Services is quick, polite and attentive. It won't be as long... More

Candy Town has been my family's favourite Chinese restaurant for over two decades. It has gone from strength-to-strength, consistently delivering unbeatable food, great service and an all-round brilliant evening out. I would highly recommend the mango chicken, king prawns in oyster sauce, kung po chicken and chicken with cashew nuts - as they are all outstanding in taste.

We've been going to Candytown for years - birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and just when we fancy a Chinese. It's always quality food and service. It never fails and we've never left thinking we've had better there :-)

I must have been to Candy Town around 50 times now and for some reason have never reviewed. I eat out a lot but this is by far the best Chinese restaurant that I know. The location is good, just outside the town center and the setting is quite informal but whats great is that you can choose whether you... More
