Nice meal

Never been before but was in a nearby pub celebrating a friends birthday. Arrived about 11pm on a Friday night so was easily seated. Menu is nice and easy to read (Big print) so I didn't need my glasses (Which I had forgotten anyway) Had a mixed starter for 4 people (Delicious) Pipping hotting very... read more

It was our first visit to Choi Yin, Tuesday 9th Feb, as my favourite Chinese restaurant had closed and we were looking for a replacement. The staff are very friendly, greeted as soon as we walked in, and the excellent service continued throughout the evening. Although it was a Tuesday the restaurant was busy, always a good sign. On Monday-Thursday... More

We have been looking for a replacement for another chinese restaurant that closed down last year, and we have now found it. The all-you-can buffet is varied with lots of different choices - some that we haven't seen before on other menus. The squid in particular is very good, and the chicken satay tasty. We also chose a soup, and... More

Having read the previous reviews we were disappointed with our overall experience. Saturday night is obviously going to be busy however the staff seemed more concerned about serving the carryout customers which meant that there were long periods inbetween our courses. The food itself was only average cold starters lacking a sauce dip, insufficent pancakes for the crispy duck again... More

I was taken here by my family for a surprise birthday meal. The waitresses were very welcoming and we had great service all evening. The food was freshly cooked and delicious. I am looking forward to eating there again. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and would 100% recommend.

Having discovered our usual Chinese takeaway was (disappointingly) closed for a week, we thought we would give the Choi Yin a try and boy are we glad we did!!! Our takeaway arrived very hot & well within the stated delivery time. The food was well cooked and the portions were very generous! I ordered a vegetable curry and it was... More

The Choi Yin is really reliable - they serve decent Chinese food with a large range to choose from and it always tastes pretty much the same. They serve good drinks and are well priced - this is by far the best Chinese in Rayleigh and we always stop here for both dine in and take away.

My family and I visited Choi Yin for a birthday party and it was incredible because the food was just amazing, staff are polite an the service was great. There is competition in the High St between Yings Oriental and Choi Yin an the Choi Yin is far better as I discovered after having an appalling meal at Yings the... More
