Great takeaways

Have eaten in a couple of times, but most recently have had a couple of takeaways. These have been of the highest quality and with great service to boot

We chose this restaurant as it looked clean and the menu inviting, the staff are quite diffident and consequently this reflected in the dinner. We ordered a bottle of wine which they didnt have, then ordered another bottle which wasnt the bottle as stated in the menu.

I usually get a take away from here when I am up in this part of the country visiting family. Really cannot fault the food. Great value for money.

Another star for a lack of atmosphere, no music, very cream and bland. Good portion of pork, small of sweet and sour chicken. portions are... More

We went as a group of six for my mother in law's birthday. The service was great and the food was lovely. We went on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was very quiet, there was only one other table taken throughout our meal so the staff were very attentive. The prices are slightly higher then other restaurants in Newark... More
