I have eaten here a number of times and the food is served to high standards. Mr Ming as done a great job and in a unlikly event your food is not to your liking they will cook you a new dish. I say it is the best Chinese restaurant In Watford.

A well run restaurant with a central location in Watford, I have gone to the Flower Drum for years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff are very polite and attentive. Great for New Year as well!! Definitely the best Chinese restaurant in Watford town centre!

The food is very tasty and the service is very good! I asked for something that was not in the Menu and they prepared it! Soups are great! Dishes are not big but they are good enough to eat properly! I am definitely going again!

Go here often for a meal. Tried a few Chinese in and around Watford but this is by far the best every time. BBQ ribs are just the unreal.

Food was very good, but we found there wan't very much of it. Staff were great and efficient. Prices were about average for a Chinese restaurant.

Excellent authentic Chinese food. The restaurant is lovely with nice decor and friendly staff. The delivery brings restaurant quality good into your home. The food is great-not overly salty as some Chinese can be
