Good takeaway

We did a takeaway from this place earlier this month - being vegetarian I wanted to go personally and order - the couple which ran the place were fairly helpful. I ordered 3 items and the chef actually told me that one of the noodles was made of egg and thus recommended another noodle dish. The... read more

We collected a take away from here a couple of days ago and when we got home we found it to be quite over cooked and lacking taste in some dishes and to much chilli in others.

Enjoyed a take away from here last night and was impressed with the lovely food, very tasty and hot. ready when we arrived for collection. My husband raved about his honey rib starter and the main courses were excellent also. We ate the lot! Will definitely order from here again.

The food was one of the best chinese meals we have ever had, definitely worth a visit. Although we were the only 2 in the restaurant the takeaway side was non stop and we were not neglected in any way. The couple running the place were very friendly and could not do enough for us or their takeaway customers. The... More

Expensive for what was no more than a Takeaway meal. I ordered Chow Mein expected it to come in a dish - just dumped on the plate.

I have eaten from here a lot, and this is the first time I have truly been disappointed. Foods I have ordered in the past came so spicy I could not and did not enjoy my meal. Not rushing back!

Just had a take away from here so not experienced the restaurant, but, wow! The food was fantastic. Ok a lot of Chinese food can be the same. Well I think this has to rate among the best. Shame we don't live in carnforth. If we are up here again, I'd certainly try the restaurant next time too. Great!!

We almost didn't go into the restaurant because from the outside it was quite grubby and uninviting. However, we had looked at reviews from TripAdvisor and decided we would try it anyway. The restaurant does seem almost an after thought from the attached chippy however the service was great; our waitress couldn't do enough for us. The food was quite... More
