Disappointing and overpriced

We ate here in December, when we were seated, we were forgotten about (despite the restaurant being almost empty!) when we eventually got menus, I was shocked at the price of the A La Carte dishes! We didn't want a set meal as we hate to waste food and wouldn't have eaten the amount of dishes... read more

I usually have the take-aways from here because of the extortionate prices of eating in a restaurant that's in serious need of modernisation with poor service. I love the food, but am put off with the service and needless to say will have to reconsider visiting again. The last three times we've been, the owner generally ignores you for the... More

Visited the restaurant with my partner for an evening meal. The restaurant was around half full. On entering the Peking there were numbers of cases of beer just left in the entrance. The first impression was one of pretty dated decor and harking back to a time when customers thought that to eat Chinese food you needed to be in... More

Very bad customer service - after being seated we were forgotten. When we finally ordered there was a considerable wait for the food. The staff are disinterested and look as if they don't want to be there. The main courses arrived at different times.The meat dish arrived and rice appeared some time later. The food was bland and tasteless and... More

This is deemed to be one of the best in Bedford... But the truth is... it is far from that! I have eaten both in the restaurant and had takeaways (February 2015). The decor is stuck in a time warp (old school) and needs updating. The food seems to get considerably worse each time and is mostly bland and overpriced.... More

Just a short walk from the centre of town and well worth it. Good choice on menu and good set menus. Food was well presented and service was very good. Excellent food with lovely flavours. Will be back on my next visit.

The food is very good, unfortunately the staff and the service offered let the experience down. Upon exit the staff said we hadn't fulfilled the entire amount of the bill, which was incorrect. This is a shame as we have had many good take away meals from this restaurant previously. Due to the rudeness of the staff we shall not... More
