“Family touch makes the difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We chose the banquet and discussed our likes and dislikes. We are not keen fish eaters as a family, but chose scallops and calamari as part of our menu. Both were delicious. All of the starters were good especially the prawn stuffed chillies ( fish again though)! and we enjoyed the Chinese beer. Unfortunately when the main courses came, we were given no explanation as to what they were and there was another fish dish!! We did return it and it was replaced with chicken. The highlight of the evening was the conversations and banter with the owners sons, they were great and of course from a business point of view customers stay longer and drink more... Win win!
I would just add that the duck and chicken is halal incase you have issues with the inhumane slaughtering of animals/ poultry .

Dear ManicDepressive,

Thanks for your feedback and we will pass your compliments on to Yin- the owners son and hope you will absolutely come and visit again soon! Apologies for the mix up with the fish and fingers crossed it didn't give you any lasting negative impressions of us.

Look forwarding to seeing you again :)

Happy Easter

“Worse meal I've had in ages”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Went here last night expecting great things, I'm not a massive fan of Chinese food these days but a recent visit to the Rice Bowl filled me with hope. The place was busy so we had about a 30 minute wait, I wish we had gone at this point. The menu is extensive but full of the usual recognisable Chinese dishes. I chose the stuffed steak strips in a pepper sauce and my partner the asparagus in a garlic sauce, both starters had to be ordered with a minimum of 2 pieces for some reason, the dishes arrived and the alarm bells rang, the inclusion of MSG was immediately obvious, both sat in a puddle of jelly like gloop, the asparagus was one piece cut in half yet they expected £5 for this! The steak was stuffed with something, I have no idea what as it didn't have any taste. The main courses arrived and were no better, the tofu was meant to be fried but hadn't seen a frying pan and again was sat in gloop and the garlic ribs chopped up in batter were inedible, no meat, all gristle and bone. The only redeeming dishes were the fried rice and noodles but even my six year old could get them right. We came to pay and the bill was over £70, outrageous for food of such low quality, this included a 'mandatory' 10% charge, we asked the very surly girl on the checkout if this was optional, three times in fact, she just said it's on the menu, it took a manager stood at her side to finally say yes it's optional, she was terrible. I would never set foot in this place again, awful food, high prices and bad service.

“Meal before the theatre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Very expensive, however, good wine choice and lovely starters/dim sum. Having established that we liked spicy (hot) food our mains were adapted to increase their potency... hint: dried chillies remain inedible (not from a heat PoV, but from a paper-dry inedibility). Nice restaurant, but a bottle of wine and meal for two came in £1 shy of £100. Pricey, and I've had better mains from a take-away, but their dim sum is lovely.

We had to prompt for a bill before our theatre show started, despite the waiting staff establishing our evening plans early on. Unnecessarily slow service to present the bill.

Dear Mike D,

Thank you for taking the time to feed back to us. We're pleased to read that you enjoyed our dim sum and wine selection and will endeavour to improve our the dining experience.

We do try to ensure our guests have a full and fantastic experience, and would be remiss if we were to offer the bill prior to it being requested, however on if you are coming to visit us again in future and are in a bit of rush we will of course accommodate this.

We look forward to seeing you again,

many thanks.
