After a long day, this hit the spot. We ordered a set combo menu for two and there was enough food for lunch the next day. Some dishes were better than others. The spring rolls didn't have enough (or in some cases any) veg filling. The green curry wasn't the best. Really enjoyed the crispy seaweed and the other dishes... More

Just back form having dinner. Pleasant surprised after reading the reviews and the ranking i wasn't expecting much but wanted to give it a try, glad that I did. Arrived shortly after opening and for about 10 minutes was the only customer there. After about 20 minutes there were about 12 others dining in. During that time there were numerous... More

I popped in and ordered prawns in breadcrumbs - overcooked! Breadcrumbs hard and prawns dry with no flavour. Also ordered a spicy veggie soup and steamed rice. The soup was inedible! Too spicey - like too much tobasco sauce! Rice was OK. Started going to Thai Corner - Lush. So many fish dishes to choose from! Sorry Beijing, but you... More

Had many meals here both in the restaurant but mainly takeaways and they are never bad. Always get your order quickly and food is always hot and fresh.

All of these negative reviews are very unfair - given how cheap it is I thought the food was very acceptable. We had the £15 menu where you may order as many starters as you want. Your starters come on a big platter which gives a nice sharing feel. You then have your roast duck, mains and pudding (although we... More

This restaurant now calls itself "Beijing Wallingford". The redecoration that has been going on for several months now appears to be complete, but is bland, uninteresting and lacking in Chinese character; judging by my recent experience, the same could unfortunately be said of the food. Eating here on previous occasions I've tried the buffet, and found some dishes were very... More

We understand the restaurant has recently been re-vamped, and my son was keen to try it, hoping for a good Chinese meal for his birthday dinner with the family. Both he and my husband have worked in China, and we all love good Chinese food; sadly we were let down. Generally this was poor quality food, and we wondered if... More

Visited the Beijing Diner a couple of times in the last couple of months and I'm sad to report that I couldn't recommend it. This is a shame because we really loved the place before - ok I know a lot changes in 20 years, but our last two visits have really ruined our memories of what used to be... More

Went in with a group of friends for a meal and the food and service were both very good. Will certainly be visiting again. Would highly recommend it if you are visiting the town

Been back to the diner Friday 18th December restaurant was very busy. The food once again was very good, service excellent. Still not finished the renovations but i am sure once these have been completed it will add to the atmosphere of the restaurant. Will be back again.
