We were in Watford for the night and were staying at the Travel lodge across the road so thought we'd pop in for dinner. The food was lovely, as were the staff. My girlfriend has the Chinese beer which she loved! Lovely spot.

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 a little tired. Well worth a visit... More

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.
