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

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.

I have visited this family run restaurant many times. The service & food never disappoint. It has the feel of an authentic Chinese restaurant. The food tastes gorgeous and is always hot. We also use the takeaway service. You have to pick up yourself. It costs a little more than other Chinese takeaways but it's worth every penny. We consider... More

I have been here before and really liked the restaurant, but this time I wasn't able to park as they have a very small car park which soon fills up. I have a disabled badge and my Mum is 82 so I had to drop her off and park across the road in the Co-op car park. I walked back... More
