Live locally and used to use this takeaway regularly but had a couple of mediocre meals so haven't used it for quite a while. But desperate for a Chinese takeaway we decided to give it another go.
NEVER again. The pancake roll was huge and incredibly greasy, although once we had used a kitchen roll to remove the grease it actually tasted OK. Followed this with Sweet and Sour chicken Hong kong style, the chicken in the batter was like eating string, it was so chewy and dry , have never had chicken like this anywhere ever. Then Chicken with Cashew nuts, this would have been ok if it were not for the chicken ,again tasteless ,dry and with a very strange texture, think it is probably bought in pre-cooked and then just thrown in and reheated, not nice at all. The shrimps with bean sprouts were Ok. The egg fried rice again is strange and is probably frozen judging by the consistency and taste. And the fried noodles were so greasy they were unpleasant.It is such a shame as there are very few Chinese takeaways in North Cornwall.
