So/so

We were super hungry after a long day of work and needed a big food hit. Not looking for much quality-- just a mountain of food. After going in 3 other take-aways that didn't accept card we went to Pearl River. The female owner was absolutely lovely and was extremely patient as we looked through... read more

Tried this for the first time and it was so vile we chucked it away and went and bought sausage and chips. The crispy beef is chewy and inedible definetly the worst I have ever had anywhere even the rice tastes horrible. Definetly will not use again. Stick to good fortune just around the corner the food actually has nice... More

Ordered salt & chilli ribs and Singapore noodles, we were very disappointed, the ribs were bland, nothing like the ribs we get from our local Chinese, the noodles were quite wet and the main taste was Chinese five spice,...

We were staying in holiday cottage and chose this restaurant to have a takeaway delivered from. There was nothing seriously wrong with any of it but the chicken balls were a bit stodgy, some of the dishes a bit bland and the crispy beef wasn't crispy. However the spare ribs were very meaty and nice and the kids thought the... More
