Arranged a works night out to have dinner here for 20 people.

My wife and I dropped by here a few weeks ago, and although not busy the food was good. We would defiantly return.

A great night out for a friend's 30th. Drinks were a great price and there was a great DJ set, whereby the DJ was open to requests.

Yummy! Fresh, crunchy veg with generous noodle portions. The set two course menu is extraordinarily good value.

I don't know why this place is always so empty? It is a very good quality Chinese, the food is great! Best prawn crackers I've ever had. Worth a visit if you're feeling oriental.

We have been visiting Kalared since the day it opened nearly ten years ago. We have always been made to feel welcome by the owner and or his wife. The food we cannot fault and it is certainly value for money. Terence and Gillian
