We always go here for our Chinese, as it is well priced yet not overwhelmingly greasy like other places are. And if you are ever unsure, asking the girls at the counter know exactly what to suggest and are happy to explain what each dish is like. This will always be my Chinese, perfect food and perfect service! No place... More

Snappy szechuan and fresh, simple vegetable dishes (try the broccolli steamed with ginger for example). Excellent takeaway with some interesting diversions from the mainstream.

We visited Oxford for a few nights on a 'baby moon'. But popped into Witney for food on both nights. On our second night we fancied some Chinese food! Where to go? Good old trip advisor! Looked this little gem up, read the reviews & booked a table for 7pm! When we approached, we instantly thought it was someone's house!... More

The all you can eat on Mondays is a must! The food is great and the service is amazing. Even if you can't make the all you can eat, a takeaway from here is just as good! 11/10

My boyfriend and I have visited the water margin a number of times and are never disappointed. The owners are pleasant, helpful and welcoming. On top of that, we have take away from there at least once every other week, to the point that they know my name before I say it on the phone! We have tried every other... More

I went last night with my partner. Like others have said it doesn't look great from the outside and it is a small restaurant. However the staff are very friendly and efficient, the food portions are generous and most importantly the food was very tasty. We will definitely be going back as it was great value for money.

Had two takeaways from here recently. First one was really good. Best duck I've ever tasted. I ordered lemon chicken both times and second time not quite as good but duck was amazing again...but the cucumber was slimy so must have gone off. If they chop and store in pots ready to go they might not have noticed but not... More

Very very poor... Looking at trip advisor I'm sure the owners are writing there own reviews! The food is very bland,we ordered 6 different dishes and I reckon a child had made them...do not order from here u will regret it

I was being taken out to dinner while visiting Witney, so dressed up. When I got to the Water Margin I was sorry I had, but luckily my partner had read the previous reviews so wasn't put off by the outside. The food is great, really fresh and big portions. The service is also great. OK, the place doesn't look... More
