Good food but rude manager

We arrived on Easter Sunday evening and it wasn't overly busy but this suited us as we got seated straight sway without a booking. The young waitress was very pleasant and quickly took our drinks order before she left us to peruse the menu. I've visited China Court several times over the years and... read more

Used to be a very good restaurant but standards appear to be slipping. Service is rather bizarre, with a manageress/owner running the place in the style of Basil Fawlty. Lots of waiters wander the restaurant in laps doing absolutely nothing. If you ask them for anything, they seem to struggle with English and run to to fetch the manageress. Almost... More

Have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed until our visit on sat 16th may. First of all we were rushed to order our starters as soon as we were seated or we were told we would have to wait a long time because they were busy. After finishing our starters and waiting a while we had... More

We have just enjoyed a take away form this restaurant. We had been told that it had changed management and that the food wasn't as good, so we thought we would find out for ourselves. We knew the management had changed as soon as we walked in to collect our meal. We were greeted by smiling staff who were friendly... More

Had a really nice meal for my daughter's birthday in January but a lack of people skills from one member of staff put a real dampener on the evening. What happened was I ordered a Britvic 55 for my daughter and was given one ( it was the last one in the fridge and the staff thought they had none... More

Went on Saturday evening with friends. On arrival was met you the mature lady who seemed to be manager/perhaps owner. She was curt to the point of being rude. We were shown to a table at the back of the restaurant which had little atmosphere and seems to be the overflow area. We were served drinks and starter quickly but... More

Been several times before and we go for the food, which is always good to very good. However, there are areas to improve. Drinks order was taken and arrived quickly, food was ordered and the duck starter (shared) arrived and we tucked in. However the mains were painfully slow to come and other tables' orders arrived well before ours even... More

Went with friends and then for my husbands birthday. Food was gorgeous and not overpriced. Staff a bit distant but not out of arrogance so it has never mattered. Definitely going back.
