Stopped in here for a couple of drinks after dinner, it was quite busy but not too loud, the drinks were good and we managed to get a quiet table with comfortable seats.. Can't fault it!

Yummy! Fresh, crunchy veg with generous noodle portions. The set two course menu is extraordinarily good value.

I don't know why this place is always so empty? It is a very good quality Chinese, the food is great! Best prawn crackers I've ever had. Worth a visit if you're feeling oriental.

We have been visiting Kalared since the day it opened nearly ten years ago. We have always been made to feel welcome by the owner and or his wife. The food we cannot fault and it is certainly value for money. Terence and Gillian

Rude waiter, ignored our table once he knew we were using tastecard. Forgot one of our dishes. Good food, all fresh and tasty. Disappointing that the waiter was so rude as won't return. I notice he is mentioned in other reviews.
