“Very good chinese restaurant in Ipswich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I have only recently started using this Chinese restaurant in Ipswich and i must admit that i am gutted i didn't start using it years ago. I often find Chinese food can be too stodgy and sometimes very greasy but i am very impressed with the quality at Mr Wing.
Although it is a buffet style menu it is unlike other buffets where you go and get a plate and then are presented with 50 or so dishes that are sitting under halogen lamps and then replaced with new food just poured on top of the nearly empty ones. All the food is cooked to order and presented very well on nice warm plates.
There is the option to have duck if you wish as a starter and there is a very good selection of appetizers and a very good selection of meat, fish and tofu dishes.
Service is also very good and i will only criticize that some of the drinks are a little on the pricey side, but nothing out of the ordinary.
They are closed on Mondays which is slightly strange as the restaurant is situated next door to the Regent and there are often shows on Monday evenings.

“Very tastey food and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Went to Mr Wings as recommended by a friend. Went on a Saturday night and made the most of the all you can eat menu for under £20. Don't worry, this is not buffet and is a full serviced menu. Service was good, drinks not cheap but the food was delicious. We were never waiting around too long for food, always came out piping hot, good variation of dishes. Very much recommended. Salt and Chilli squid was particularly good.
It is very difficult to get a table in this place, you can only book. Have tried several times to book a couple of weeks in advance and it seems this place is always fully booked. I would recommend booking well in advance.

“Very nice food, good service, excellent value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Four of us dined here on a busy saturday evening. We called earlier that day and were glad to get a table for 9pm. You should book in advance for a better time.

We had a selection of appetisers, duck pancakes, and a selections of mains. We chose to order some dishes ourselves and asked the staff to recommend the rest. It was all really tasty.

The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The decor inside the restaurant is a bit dated but there's a good buzz about the place, which makes it a good choice for special occasions.

At £25 a head including half a bottle of wine each it really was excellent value (we could have had dessert and coffee included in that too). I'd definitely recommend.
