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

We went on a Saturday and had the set menu. Wine was cheap but good. Odd to serve prosecco in wine glasses. At first we thought they might not have anything else but then a table ordering next to us two glasses got flutes!! Odd! Few mix ups on courses. Some dishes were better than others, but overall very tasty... More

Have been going to the Flower Drum (& having takeaways) for the best part of 40 years, ever since it opened. It has always been my favourite Chinese restaurant in Watford. The food is always a cut above, the service is impeccable and polite, in fact I am not sure why we do not visit more often. The dishes are... More

We hadn't been to this restaurant in about 20 years. The service was great and the food lovely. We weren't disappointed and would go again.

This is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the area. We've been here so many times over the years and we've never been let down. Every dish we try is delicious and full of flavour. Even though we live outside Watford, we now use the Flower Drum for takeaway as well. Again, it's the same high quality. Always good... More

I've been using a local takeaway recently having used Flower Drum previously. The reason why Flower Drum continues to do well is because their food is amazing each and every time I place an order. The delivery is normally within 30 minutes and although my usual choice of restaurant is nearer, FlowerDrum wins hands down.

We visited the restaurant for a quick meal before our show. We only ordered an array of vegetarian starters and we were not disappointed. The service was quick and the food we ordered was the veg dim sum in spicy sauce, the veg wraps, veg in black bean sauce and spicy tofu. The food was tasty and spicy as we... More

We have sat in this restaurant but nowadays we have take away or deliveries. The food is very good service is reasonable. Food is still hot when it is delivered would highly recommend. Prices bit expensive for Watford but worth the prices for the quality of the food in my opinion
