Love them, but, ordered. Told ten mins. They hadn't cooked it, cooked it when. I arrived. Forgot that I asked to make it spicy. Got home. non spicy meal. On a Friday night. Really f ING annoying. But freshly cooked, good food.

Ordered a takeaway on a recommendation. Did not disappoint, meal for 4 fed 6 adults including two hungry teenagers!! One vegetarian in the family was more than catered for. Hot, tasty and great value for money

Ate it, tasted fine, not the best. However, a few hours later I was spewing it back out and have felt ages every since eating. Would never order again, I am writing this whilst having the cold sweats and shakes after being sick everywhere.

The delivery took an hour. The food arrived luke warm. When we called to complain that we had to microwave the food (!) we were met with suspicion!! The manager had to call us back, he wasn't very apologetic, possibly has had this complaint many times before? He offered us 20% discount off our next order which we will never... More

Best Chinese I've tried in Swindon, even my boyfriend who doesn't really like Chinese food finished the lot without a single complaint (RARE for him). Polite delivery driver, very apologetic of his late delivery; even though he called to say he was lost and kept me updated. Also managed to get Char Sui buns which I've not seen on a... More

I don't usually review takeaways, but feel this had to be done.. as it's a little strange I have had food from Welcome Express in Old Town many times.. and had been there since it opened (6 years ago or so?). I find the food there to be fantastic.. freshly made (you can tell) and really of great quality for... More
