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

Ordered a takeaway from here on recommendation from a friend. Absolutely amazing! . Hot, very tasty and as good as eating it in the restaurant. Spring rolls were crisp, rice well cooked, meat tender. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Top quality take away - the first chinese food that tastes as good in silver cartons as it does served hot in the restaurant.

Always consistently delicious food with a friendly welcome. Always remembered on next visit. The lemon chicken is ridiculously good. Best sesame prawn toast ever! We generally order take away, generally on a visit - as we love the warm welcome. Occasionally we have delivered. Can't fault them.
