We visited the China House today and ordered a takeaway. We ordered the Kung po chilli chicken and had to play hunt the chicken as the dish consisted of mostly water chestnuts. We also ordered the shredded chilli beef which was only just about edible and was a very mean portion. The other dish we ordered was sweet and sour... More

First of all, the service is unbelievably good and friendly. Secondly, the food is excellent. We had a takeaway this evening and will definitely go back next time we are in the area. Highly recommended.

6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal here last night. Sat at a large circular table with a 'lazy susan' and had a great time. All you can eat style and there was a constant flow of portions delivered to the table. Everyone walked out stuffed so will be back. Good value

Prawn crackers were stale, beef with ginger and spring onion was terrible and looked like washing up water as a result couldn't eat it and it ended up in the bin. Won't be going back!

We've had takeaway meals from China House before, but this was close to inedible. The proportion of meat to vegetable was unacceptable, being padded out with lots and LOTS of onion, and a heavy dose of oil or grease. Sweet and sour pork seemed to be made from meremscraps of meat, padded out with MORE onion. Prawn toast was just... More

Visited on Wednesday night with family to celebrate my wife's birthday. This was our first meal at China House and we will definitely be returning soon. Food was of a high quality with good portions served piping hot on nicely warmed plates. We choose the "all you can eat" menu and we give it a fair attempt! Extra dishes were... More

Went out for a friend's birthday. If we hadn't already booked, I wouldn't even have gone in. The carpet, tables and walls are all brown. Lots of scuffed paint where chairs had rubbed up against the walls. Bright spotlights made for an in cosy atmosphere. It just had a very depressing air about it. The staff were lovely and I... More
