V good take away - doubles as a Chinese

One off visit whilst on holiday break. Considered eating in but was very quiet so decided to grab take out. Lovely service from lady out front - the Peking sauce meal was esp good. The extras weren't cheap - rice etc - but would recommend the food strongly.

The food was really good and fresh, the sauce was very tasty. Everything was for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

The decor needs an update but the lovely food more than makes up for this. The mixed starter was absolutely gorgoeous! Looking forward to another visit soon.

My wife and I have eaten at the New World occasionally over the past 25 years. I say "occasionally" because we find the food and service so good that we keep this gem for special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries etc.). I completely fail to understand the few negative comments on this page, although if you look at what has been written... More

A lovely local gem! New World is a Vietnamese restaurant, the food is very similar in style to Chinese food. There is a good selection of food and the service is very friendly - Kim is a lovely host. We started with Chicken Satay - skewers of very hot freshly cooked chicken in a spicy peanut sauce. I followed this... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here recently. The staff were warm and friendly, especially the owner who was very attentive and made us feel very welcome and at home. Everything was delicious - especially our crispy chilli beef dish, which had a nice kick and flavour to it without being overpowering - and we're looking forward to coming back.

This place was recommended to us and we loved it. The owner was chatty and friendly, especially after we said we weren't local but liked Vietnamese food. The dishes on the menu looked great and our starter was wonderful as was our crispy duck. A great Vietnamese in Tewkesbury and highly recommended.

Team of 10 in this restaurant 7th Oct 14. This is a horrible food experience - nobody in the group enjoyed the food. Firstly - it calls itself Vietnamese but we weren't fed anything but poor western Chinese cuisine. The decor is dated. The food hygiene rating is 4 out of 5. We had food that felt like it had...

We've been going to the New World ever since it first opened which must be about 20 years ago although it could be more. We probably go about every six months and we went this evening and the food was absolutely delicious. Kim always take the time to ask how we are and chat if she has the time. If... More

My view is that Vietnamese food is wonderful. This restaurant provides it although it is more Chinese than Vietnamese. The quality is first class and there are some very interesting tastes. Highly recommended.
