Lovely food and friendly staff

This place has a real family feel and you know the owner cares about her business. We visited on a Friday night after being highly recommended on their take away service. Ate in as it was empty (but loads of take away orders flowing) and food was lovely. Great thai menu as well as Chinese which was... read more

We took over the restaurant for the evening for a 60th birthday and had a great night. Linda and the staff could not have done enough for us. Food was lovely and plenty of it, we were looked after and everyone had a great night. Thank you

Bog standard town centre Chinese Exactly the same as most others serving the same generic gloopy staples each dish almost indistinguishable from the other in taste terms! Bland.

The food here is always fantastic, never been disappointing Linda the owner has a great personality and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. She is always happy to make sure my food is MSG free which is important to me as I'm allergic. Eat here or get a takeaway, you won't be disappointing. .

Ordered a banana fritter, no syrup, so they drove back to deliver a pot of syrup, and there was a dribble if that. Ridiculous. Finally ate it, banana was still cold and the batter wasn't cooked. Really dissapointed, won't be ordering here again

Been to this Chinese a few times and never disappointed. Food is great value for money and tastes delicious. Had it delivered this time and they were quick at this and the food was very hot. Would strongly recommend

Ordered a takeaway from NDC this evening, having read fantastic reviews about it being the 'best chinese in the area'. Sad to say we were left bitterly disappointed. The food was distinctly average... prawn toasts were oily, spare ribs tasteless and the crispy chilli beef was chewy (to name but a few). We had previously been ordering takeaways from the... More

Have just eaten here for the first time, and the food was extremely well cooked, and delicious! The crispy shredded beef with chilli sauce was the best I have ever tasted, and I highly recommend it! Great service, and lovely staff. Thank you Linda (owner), Seb (Box Hill School)

We visited early on a Sunday evening and were the only customers eating in although there was a steady stream of takeaway deliveries and collections. The hostess was very attentive including unsealing the mineral water in front of us. The chicken rendang was lovely but a bit hidden at the back of a traditional UK Chinese restaurant menu. The starters... More

i have been here a few times over the years and generally the food is pretty good, and the best Chinese in the town, although that is not difficult! Recently though standards have slipped. Some of the dishes feel like they've been reheated several times and are pretty tough. The place itself is tired and a bit grubby and although... More
