My only note would be it could be time for a update and it can get quite cold in here.... maybe they have done that but... More

I always pop in when I'm visiting Watford. The lunch deal is tremendous and tasty. Ming, the manager, will always make you feel welcome.

We looked at flower drums online menu as we didn't have a paper copy and the pricing was very different to what we was charged when delivery man came. The food was bland, over salted and was a disappointment bearing in mind how expensive it was. Wouldnt order from there again.

A lovely quiet restaurant opposite travelodge which is why we popped in. Lovely staff and the food was quick and very tasty. Reasonably priced too although expect to pay for good chinese food. The only thing I would say is that staff were often too attentive as we like to take our time when eating and enjoying a drink but... More

We chose one of the set menus and were not dissapointed. There was so much yummy food that we couldn't eat all of it. They were more than happy to put it in takeaway boxes for us. Staff were very friendly could not fault it.

Tried this place and would never go back absolutely disgusting. Their cleanliness rating is a 3 on the gov website but I took a punt. Had 3 starters, fish cakes were like flat piece of rubber that had been left somewhere for a week. Everything tasted like old oil that had been used again and again. Then the bill was... More

All you van eat £16.50 no dessert and drinks not included. Also a 10% surcharge. For the 2 £16.50 meals plus 2 watered down cokes. I paid just over £40. We hadn't youch the duck so my wife asked if she could take it as we were paying for it and they said no. I don't recommend.

We switched to this Chinese after our previous favourite changed hands, and we were not disappointed. They have a good wide range on their menu, offering all the usual dishes you would expect and a couple of extra too. The prices are very reasonable and on a par with other local Chinese takeaways. The delivery service is very good, and... More
