Booked a table for 14 family members for a 50th birthday meal at the Orchid. The staff are fab, great atmosphere. The food was very nice I enjoyed my meal, loved the ribs and sweet and sour chicken. I had a great time, I would go back to try different dishes.

On arrival at 7.30 table booked for 8pm I asked could we go upstairs for a drink first, the owner pulled a face and said "just 1 ok". The prawn toast was off tasted sour, when we told the owner he said "there made fresh every day, what else do u want". We ordered chicken satay on a skewer baring... More

I was told that this restaurant is highly rated - I can only assume that the people who came to this conclusion have never actually been to a decent Chinese restaurant. The food is bland, tasteless and poor quality. I visited here twice in a week as I was briefly staying in the area - and tried the 'best' seafood... More

We booked here after many visits for a Father's Day meal for my dad, the food was really nice as usual however one member of staff was that rude that it's completely put any of us off going again. After ordering a wine and soda and a diet lemonade, we were brought a wine and lemonade and just a wine,... More

Lovely restaurant it's clean and we'll decorated. The food is great always a pleasure to eat here and the staff are plentiful and eager to help. Caters for couples all the way up to large parties. Fab meals always here. Downside is the chairs could be a little more comfortable! !

We used to come here a few times per month until it changed owners. The food is now only average, some look warm and tasteless and this has improved since earlier in the year. I was surprised to see so many empty tables on a Saturday night, and a couple close to us also remarked how this place has become... More

Something has happened here. Been visiting for three decades. My filet steak Cantonese style is not the same, it has a different texture. I've been twice within the past month. Maybe it's time for a change.

We visited for a family meal this weekend as we had heard great things about it and never been. We arrived early and so we were asked to wait upstairs whilst they prepared the table. This took longer than expected but it was ok. The service was good from the staff and the restaurant is lovely inside but... The food... More

I have been going here for years, always amazing food and service but since someone else has taken over the food has gone right down hill! I got duck in plum sauce as I usually do and I literally couldn't eat it, my family were also very disappointed with the food, I'd be unimpressed if I got that quality of... More
