Have been a visitor to The Birds Nest since they opened. Yes it went a little down a couple of years ago but I can truly say they are right up there now! They cook good fresh food without the enhancers that most Chinese food have in them and are very happy to accommodate any dietary requirements. My Mum has... More

The tofu at this place was the best tofu I've had, and I've eaten quite a lot of the stuff! The rest of he meal was good too, everything was properly made and tasty. Staff were friendly and courteous without being too much. All in all a great quality Chinese.

Superb Chinese food which all freshly made and cooked to order. Friendly hosts and nothing seems too much trouble. Would certainly recommend.

Just delicious...only wish it was closer to my home and not a thousand miles away. Staff remembered us and were most attentive. Note: all seating except takeaway is upstairs.

Very good service. Big helpings. Lots of choice. Squid in chilli oil really delicious. The meal for two was more than adequate & the fried rice on the more expensive choice was scrummy.

We came here to celebrate a family birthday and we are so glad we did, the food was excellent! It was so nice to have Asian food that wasn't covered in gloppy msg fluorescent sauces. I had the Crispy Sea Bass in Shanghai sauce which was awesome. Dad totally rated the noodles and said it was like being back in... More

There was a young child at the table beside us who was excellently behaved, but as the evening wore on (past eight) he was obviously tired and became noisy and attention seeking. The restaurant prides itself on being family... More
