When you walk into the Ideal the décor is pretty grim, I have to admit. Yellow and purple table cloth and napkins - who though that was a nice choice?? the whole place does need a drastic facelift but the food is great! They do a deal where its unlimited starters - all freshly cooked and piping hot (the honey... More

We have been coming here for a few years now because of the good deal of as many starters as you want and a main for £13.90 the food is lovely aswell and seems freshly made it's always piping hot! Our only problem is the manager he is beyond miserable and never seems to crack a smile the younger waiter... More

We visited with friends yesterday, for my husband's birthday. He wanted to go to another restaurant which we go to frequently but then decided to go to The Ideal for a change. We ordered drinks, but they did not have the wine we ordered from the menu (just a claret - nothing unusual). My friend's beer was sent back because... More

It was the first Chinese restaurant we found in Stockton. Was horrible for the price we paid and with the exception of the younger member of staff, they are all in need of customer service training. The main dish especially was like cardboard and the rice portion was stingy. The whole place is in need of a makeover. Word of... More

I with my husband friends and family have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and we have never had a bad meal. The soup starters and mains are tasty and well made. I especially love the hot & sour soup and the ribs in syrup. We will be back at Ideal on Saturday with a group of us for... More

Visited here for our annual Xmas Chinese meal in Stockton Heath. Surprised by not a single Christmas table decoration. Food was just about average, décor needs updating, but service was good. Not a place I would go again.

Not at all as I expected - being in Stockton Heath I thought it would be modern and trendy and aimed at the pretentious type! Far from it - a very traditional English Chinese with dodgy wallpaper and lots of golden dragons etc. The food was all very tasty - although not really a fan of diced veg in my... More
