Slow service

Very slow service although the staff were friendly and apologetic for the wait. I would recommend the lemon chicken but everything else was average.

Had a chicken curry, chicken was really chewy and opinions as good as raw. Food came out within minutes clearly not cooked properly.......Only positive was the Christmas calendar!!!

I'm a regular here. Food is without doubt the best Chinese in town. Admittedly the woman behind the counter can get somewhat flustered but she means well. On the whole if you like good Chinese food then I highly recommend On Bong.

We love going to On Bong, we are local and go regularly. She's a lovely lady and I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews.

Not sure why there are some poor reviews on this take away. It is miles better than the one across the road from it which frankly put us off having Chinese again. On bong however was very good. Not particularly greasy for a Chinese takeaway. Friendly lady. Looks like Chinese is back on the menu. Hoorah!

Very rude lady who can't cope under pressure especially on a busy night. She short changes and over charges you the food is average but personally I don't recommend. The Crown is much better especially service wise.

I am very surprised to read some of the negative reviews here. This may go to show that most people only write a review when they have had a bad experience, I don't know. What I do know is that on the two or three occasions that we have ordered food from On Bong, our meals have been to a... More

Went in & ordered my food. Had a 50minute wait & when I got home (30sec walk from there) my order was incorrect. I returned & stated my order was wrong & she said it was what I ordered. & as I had eaten some (which I hadn't) wasn't allowed a refund. Finally after 10mins of her being rude &... More
