“Best Chinese I've had...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Again as per other reviews. Welcomed seated. Served drinks quickly. An excellent choice of all dishes( this is the Sunday buffet menu) But what's unique is that your order and food is brought to the table.The food quality is excellent as well ( no rubber chicken here ! ) The price is high for a buffet but the quality and choice make that price acceptable. The smoked chicken a stand out dish for me. Will definately go again.

“Always a great meal, friendly staff and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Nicely welcomed and seated efficiently. The waiter was friendly, attentive and swift. Drinks order taken straight away. Starters arrived within 10 minutes of ordering (try the salted squid with chilli!). Wine was excellent and well priced. The mains were delivered swiftly (Lamb in XO Sauce was particularly nice) and all together and steaming hot! We were a bit naughty and also had apple, banana and pineapple fritters for deserts (the Mango ice cream is lovely). Left feeling full and will return again and again. Thoroughly recommend.

“Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have been to Pin Wei approx once a month for the last 3 years and never had a bad experience. The staff are always very welcome and the few times we had kids with us the interacted with them and made sure they got their food first.
We tend to eat from the "Eat as much as you like" menu (Sun - Tue) as we like to try different dishes, so having smaller portion is not a problem, you can always order more.

“Lunch Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were a little early for a visit to the Harry Potter studios and so called in here for lunch having seen previous good reviews on here. The restaurant was pretty empty and very cold. Choice for the lunchtime menu was limited to half a dozen starters and half a dozen mains. That would have been fine if they'd been good, but they really weren't. Small portions and pretty poor quality to be honest. Staff were very friendly though and service very good. It was fairly cheap too, but I didn't want cheap!

Maybe this place is much better in the evening. I couldn't recommend calling here for lunch though.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We've had dinner here several times and never been disappointed. This week we had lunch for the first time and the food was as great as we remembered. We particularly enjoyed the squid, but all the food is high quality, freshly cooked and expertly served.
A warm welcome awaits you here at a very good restaurant.
