Ignore the very dated decor (unless you really love artex) and you will have an amazing meal. Staff friendly and food is probably one of the best Chinese meals I've had. Annoyed they wouldn't serve me a can of diet coke from the fridge. They insisted on serving me expensive like warm diet coke from the bottle.

upon walking in, i was greated by happy bubbly welcoming staff who promptly showed us to a table, the menu has a large amount to choose from, something for everyone and the staff were more than happy to accommodate for fussy eaters! Our order came out quickly and had good quantity of food that tasted amazing! The staff were always... More

We arrived early but were treated as though we were the only guests. The food is 1st class and the service matches to food - very extensive menu.

If you love Artex'd walls and ceilings you will love this place! The decor does need modernising but it's clean enough and has a 5/5 hygiene rating. The food is excellent. One of the best Chinese meals I've ever had. The quality of the food is fantastic. Will definitely go back. Service was extremely good and staff very friendly.

We visited this resturant as a quick decision when we stayed at thorpe forest holidays as a evening meal. The decor is very dated however the food was brilliant! The portion sizes were great and the service was great from the staff. Will definately return if we head back towards Thetford way in the future.

Always get my take away from here. Quality of food is always really good. Only problem is (as with any other chinese restaurant) having a chinese take away is never cheap.

When writing reviews about places visited while on holidays, it's easy to forget the ones on your doorstep. After another excellent meal in the Taste of China restaurant last night, I realised I should have reviewed this ages ago. We have been customers for 14 years and I can't remember having a bad meal there. Staff are friendly and make... More

Whenever we want Chinese food (which is quite regular!!)we always go to A TASTE OF CHINA in Thetford. Our Daughter decided to go there for her birthday and as usual you could not fault it. I have eaten chinese in different countries which, unfortunately never come up to scratch when comparing to them. I would highly reccoment them.
