Really enjoyed the food on the lunch menu. Although this is the case, the service was pretty bad and substandard. I have been here many times in the past and have always enjoyed myself - perhaps this is just a one off.

Great little lunch menu with soup, a side dish, main and dessert for only £7 when I was there last, it's now £8. The staff are friendly and always remember me.

The décor is bland, the food is bland, the service, not great and to top it off, it was quite expensive? I know some people really like this place but I don't know why? Maybe i'm missing something, but I wont be returning any time soon. And as for the gents loos......yuk!

Popped in last night with my husband. He hadn't been there since the refurb. Got a table straight away, all fine. Was strangely given only one menu between us, and noticed that we weren't given prawn crackers to munch on though everyone else was! Still, minor details. When the food cane us was hit and delicious. Really enjoyed the meal.... More

I have never eaten in the Choi Yin but we often have take-aways them. Food is always excellent quality, piping hot, delivered quickly and very reasonably priced. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a Chinese take-away!

We have been visiting this restaurant and ordering take aways for 13 years. The last six months they have gone downhill drastically! We have ordered take away three times in a row and have waited at least two hours even though we are told when ordering a max 1hr. Every time we call to find out where it is we... More

My husband, daughter and I went to the Choi Yin on Friday evening. She is 5 years old yet our bill was still £80 without any alcohol or desserts! The service was incredibly cold - even bordering on moody! The waitresses were unattentive, unwelcoming, disinterested - and those were their qualities! We have eaten there for many, many years and... More

I haven't been to eat in the restaurant yet but have had takeaway from here a few times and it's delicious. Really nicely cooked, great flavours and one of the best Chinese dinners I've eaten. It has recently been refurbished so I look forward to going out to eat in the restaurant soon.
