“No tables available!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We turned up at this restaurant ok we hadn't booked however when we arrived and saw the restaurant less than a third full, we thought all would be ok. Apparently not, we were told by a disheveled member of staff, "we are not taking any more tables as we're too busy", didn't look that way to us. To be fair they did check with, who I assume was the head waitress, who was standing by bar not looking "very busy". They did return and ask us to come back in an hour. Eh I think not!!! Poor response from the start and only a third full, as a restaurant they must be happy with running at a third capacity on a Saturday evening!!!
Wish I could review the food but not on this occasion and wouldn't think about returning to try it now.

“Best place for chinese in Dundee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is an amazing restaurant. Service is always very fast and food is always really tasty. I've been going here for years now and although it doesn't look like much from the outside and slightly grubby around the edges but it's like a tardis on the inside. The staff are always really friendly and Steve the manager is always in high spirits. Midweek Mon-Thurs they do a good 3 course meal deal where you can literally pick just about anything off the menu for £11.99! I would recommend the salt and pepper squid and the satay as they are beautiful!

“Don`t miss out on this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is the best Chinese restaurant in Dundee, It has a great atmosphere, The food is top quality and the staff are always helpful and attentive. Nothing is ever too much trouble,
You can have a 3 course meal here for 9.99 Mon-Thu and 12.99 Fri-Sun. Choice of 3 courses is not limited to certain meals, you are free to choose from the entire menu.

The only problem now is that lots of people agree and you are best to phone and book a table or you might have to wait for some time if you just turn up.

“First class Chinese restaurant with great friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

At first glance you might miss the unassuming looking restaurant but once inside you'll be greated by friendly staff and great food. The salt and chilli chicken and prawns we had were fantastic. Mains are well priced and good with plenty of rice or noodles to keep you happy.
Recommend you give it a try.

“Nice takeaway.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I used to live in Dundee about 8 years ago and always used Chopstix for a takeaway. I was working in Dundee last November and had a chow mein special. It was as good as it always was.
