Very food Chinese food

We have had the pleasure of eating here many times. The food is of good quality, hot and well presented. The only negative is a rather expensive wine list. Lovely place and enjoyable experience.

Great place to eat, friendly staff and food is very good, portions are huge so rice, noodle dishes etc can be easily shared. The Prawn toast starter is one of the best I've ever had and ye menu is so extensive it's difficult to even choose as you have so much on offer. Anything you can't finish if you ask... More

We've been to the slow boat 3 several times over the past few years. Unfortunately for me it doesn't seem as good, the staff are still very polite and friendly it's just that the food has changed, still tasty but the shredded beef and chicken weren't crispy like they used to be and having a man outside trying to get...

Got two dishes and two rices,the beef with ginger was quite nice ,but we also got chicken curry Thai style,and I've got to say it was awful ! Like a korma with pineapple.. I've had many a Thai dish but this was nothing like Thai. But if you like big portions this Chinese is perfect.

I ordered food for a takeaway, the servants were very helpful since I am not very familiar with chinese food. The food portions were very generous and tasted delicious. Would definitely order my food there again.

We had the Chinese banquet set menu, and there was so much food. Everything piping hot, and vegetables still with crunch so nothing overlooked and slimey. Service... More

This has to be the best Chinese on the island. Portions are so big and if you can't eat it all they give you it in a takeaway tub. The staff are also lovely and attentive here. We ate here twice on holiday we loved it that much. There are a couple of slow boats on the island bit this... More
