“Vegetarians beware”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

My husband ordered sweet and sour tofu which was reheated but worse than that he had a piece of pork amongst it. This meant he was not able to eat the rest of his meal. I had crispy squid which was soggy. Would not use again

“Great, again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Had a lovely takeaway with the family.

Tasty chicken balls, great crispy beef, nice foo Yung, good plain chow mean, chips and rice. About £20.

Reception area is a bit nasty, but food is great.

“Disapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Took an hour to arrive, duck was very dry. Ordered chicken in black bean sauce and it tasted more like chicken in gravy. No spice or taste whatsoever. The food was fresh tasting but lacked what I expected taste wise.

“Off meat!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Please avoid, after receiving our order of off meat and duck tasting of blood I kept our entire meal to take back and get a refund but they point blank refused offering only 30% off another meal with them. The food put me off Chinese for life so I'd certainly never re order with them, it's a shame their lack of customer service meant that I feel it necessary to write reviews on them. Avoid,!

“on the slide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

my previous experiences herehave been good. on this occasion delivery took 50+ mins, and the food was sub par. thin tasteless watered down sweet n sour sauce. hardly any sauce or chillis or cashews in the beef. no brown 'gravy' on the chow mein.

disappointing.
