Good but nothing special

4 of us ate, we had a mixed platter for 3, 4 mains, 3 puddings and one drink each - probably around £70 I would think, so not unreasonably priced. The starter was good - lovely satay chicken (though it would have been nice had the sticks been visible from the outside so I didn't bite in to one... read more

Had a couple of take away meals from here last week, nothing fancy, Chicken with pineapple and Chicken chop suey. Truly terrible is the best way to describe it, looked awful, the word 'Gloop' springs to mind, and I can confirm it tasted no better. Ate bits of it and the rest was binned. Should have taken it back, but... More

First evening in Ripon - walked in with friends expecting a restaurant as the name suggests only to be told it's only a takeaway! We walked out and ate somewhere else that night. However last night got a takeaway. Staff were helpful and efficient as 10 of us all ordered separately. Portions were big, tasty and reasonably priced - meal... More

Good food and good service . We use this takeaway on a regular basis and it's certainly the best in Ripon. Staff are always friendly and food never takes long

We ordered: Sesame prawn toast- dripping with oil and less than 1mm prawn topping King prawn Szechuan style - this was prawns in a thick soupy mess resembling minestrone soup. The vegetables looked and tasted like the tiny chopped tinned veg NOT the bamboo shoots, onions, ginger etc. you would expect. Kung Po beef- tasteless lurid maroon sauce with lots... More

My wife and I ate here last Sunday (28th June) early evening. Service was first class, food excellent and plentiful. Great value too. Do try the honey roast pork - it's superb. The shared starter was very good in terms of content and value. Give it a try!

I would give this restaurant two stars for the size of its portions and friendly staff, but really this was one of the worst Chinese meals I've eaten in a long time. The fillet steak, the chicken chow mien and the pork satay all arrived swamped in an identical, very bland gravy. You could not taste satay sauce at all.... More

We stayed in Leyburn recently and walked across the market square to eat upstairs in The Dragon Inn. The staff were friendly and attentive. The menu was comprehensive and wide ranging. We ordered a mixture of both familiar and new dishes between us and were not disappointed as even the former were served slightly differently ..... but in a good... More

Was a bit dubious about ordering a takeaway, having read the other reviews, but they picked up their phone on the 2nd ring (unlike the Chinese takeaway in Bedale who didn't answer at all - on a Saturday night) and the food was really quite alright. Had read other reviews about lack of flavour but we had lemon chicken and... More

Three of us visited and we had 1/4 Crispy duck and the set meal for three. The food was excellent and the service was good and attentive with humour. there was too much food. We had a very decent wine and the bill was a pleasant surprise ( low). A good evening we shall return.
