Food was excellent, as always. We have a friend who travels 40 miles every time we visit and who says it is the best Chinese food this side of Leicester ! Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Though the decor and toilets are in real need of modernising, I have eaten here many times and always had good food..... However, I recently ordered a takeaway and am sorry to say the food was Burnt and inedible. I have hesitated in putting this review on, but feel the owners really need to know so they can sort it...

We have visited the river gardens on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The quality of food is excellent and always tastes very fresh. The service is quick and efficient. If you opt for the "all you can eat special menu" you get the chance to sample several different dishes of your choice. The price is reasonable and the... More
