This place is local to us, and whilst it doesn’t stand out by being any different in terms of style, it always delivers good value Chinese fare with good service. Others have commented about the vague bills, and we have noticed this; however close examination reveals nothing more than loose procedures. We do not pay fixed service charges, and nor... More

Now "Wimborne Views" has closed, this chinese restaurant has the monopoly in Wimborne. Went a few weeks ago with some friends, the meal was quite enjoyable, thought we would try again last Saturday. One friend ordered the duck, which was very fatty, and hardly had any meat on it, my other friend ordered beef with green pepper and black bean... More

We ate at The Square as a party of 8. The waitresses made us feel welcome but the same could not be said for, who I presume was the restaurant manager! Service was slow and the portion sizes small. The bill was horrendous and as usual difficult to break down as to what we had actually been charged for! Certainly... More

Food ok unfortunately this restaurant has a monopoly at the moment as Wimborne views is closed. Watch out for 17% yes 17% service charge and no itemised bill. On reflection we should have asked for the bill to be itemised and the service charge to be removed. We will not be going again or recommending.

First visit (due in part to temporary closure of nearby usual alternative) and was impressed with the welcome and attentiveness of the staff - maybe recent reviews have had an impact. Our group ordered one of the feast options - including a comprehensive vegetarian option for two of our party - and we enjoyed a very tasty meal, of good... More

This is our first visit to this restaurant after re-locating from the West Midlands. We were instantly impressed by the friendly welcome and attentiveness by the 2 female staff. We chose our top favourites in order to be able to make a good comparison between what we were used to ‘up North’. We had Sesame Prawn toast, ¼ Crispy Duck... More

Unfortunately our favourite Chinese in Wimborne (Wimborne Views) is currently closed so we decided to give The Square a chance as we needed a Chinese takeaway fix. What a bad mistake. Firstly we ordered at the restaurant and live very close so you would expect the food to be hot. Not the case, it was barely warm and you could... More

On Saturday night we visited our family and decided on Chinese take away for 6 people. We telephoned The Square with our order and was told there would be a 50 minute wait. When we went to collect it, they couldn't find our order but it was eventually located. We were amazed at how tiny some of the portions were... More

We were in the restaurant on Saturday night early,our table was booked for 6.00 p.m, The head waitress in this restaurant hardly cracks a smile at the best of times and she has been on the point of rudeness before, but the youngsters have always tried very hard to please. This visit she finally annoyed us sufficiently that we won't... More

We took our 2 children for an end of half term treat, the restaurant was recommended by a friend. We arrived at 6.30pm, drinks and food ordered and served with no problems. We enjoyed the food, good amounts and very tasty. By about 7.30pm the restaurant was filling up (this was a Saturday evening) and the waiting staff were obviously... More
