My family took me to this place as I love Chinese food. The decor is pleasant and the staff congenial. The food was very good except for my fish Szechuan style. I did not like it (it was on the sweeter side) as much and they made no effort to replace it. Except this the food was very good. I... More

This is a classic Chinese restaurant good for a quick bite or a business lunch. It is not fine dining but the price is reflective of... More

When working in Watford on a Monday evening we always head for Flower Drum and the buffet. The food is a good standard and plenty of it. The choice is good on other evenings especially if there is a few of you dining and you can choose from the set menus. Staff are friendly but the bottled beer is a... More
