A good family run restaurant

Have been coming to this restaurant for many years. Service has always been very friendly and the food is consistently good. The ownership of the restaurant has been with the same family for nearly 20 years and in that time the standard of food and service has been maintained although the décor is... read more

We've been to this restaurant many times and also had takeaways. Never fails to be good! Quality of the food, service and a restaurant that is welcoming and comfortable.

I bought take out from the flower drum. It was across from my hotel and looked nice. It was very quiet while i was in there, with only one couple eating in. The staff where very polite and the place was nicely presented and clean. The food was cheap and edible, although the chicken was quite rubbery. I would eat... More

It is quite a few years since we last visited the Flower Drum. Food was very tasty and the service was good too. Slightly put off returning by the unbelievably bland decor. Completely lacking in ambience. Such a shame.

A fairly run of the mill menu, but all the dishes I tried were well executed. Service was very friendly.

A hidden away treasure in Watford... Simply the best Chinese cuisine in town. Staff can't be more helpful, and the service beats any of the big chains nearby! Couldn't recommend enough!

Have been to flower drum many times with friends and family. Have never had a bad experience and there takeaway food is of equal quality as the food they serve in the restaurant. Highly recommend the Sunday or Monday all you can eat buffet
